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.
