The child custody battle between Usher and Tameka Raymond just got a little uglier. TMZ exclusively reports that Usher has been held in contempt of court for taking away a Saks Fifth Avenue credit card from Tameka.
A judge has ordered him to REOPEN Usher's ex-wife's Saks Fifth Avenue credit card in his name ... after the singer closed the account last year.
The closed Saks card was just one of Tameka Raymond's many grievances in her ongoing custody fight against Usher -- and now, the court has taken her side ... holding the singer in contempt for pulling the plug on her fancy charge account.
Tameka claims she needs the account to do her job as a stylist.
As for the other grievances -- Tameka said Usher owed her cash for the nanny bill ... and continually failed to keep her in the loop about where and when he traveled with the kids.
The court agreed ... and awarded Tameka $1,300 for the nanny.
The judge has yet to determine the ex-couple's custody and support issues.
We truly hope that these two good people can figure this out. For all that they've been through, this should be the easy part.
