After laying her 11-year-old son Kile Glover to rest, Tameka Foster Raymond took to the web earlier this month to thank her supporters for their prayers and well wishes. She also described her heartache and frustrations of fighting R&B superstar, Usher Raymond IV, in court for custody of their two children, Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely Raymond, while mourning the death of Kile Glover.
On Kile Glover:
“I truly believe that he has always been an angel from birth and the world was just too small to contain a spirit so vast. I’m thankful and blessed to merely be the vessel that carried him and humbled that God gave him to us to love.”
On fighting for custody of Usher and Naviyd while mourning Kile’s death:
“Sadly, I remain in the unfortunate position of having to respond to and attend court proceedings that were not initiated or begun by me. I did not file this custody case (January 2011) and was content with the ‘joint custody’ arrangement that we share. Most importantly, nor do I wish to appear in court while I am mourning the loss of my son. But I do not want to delay and thus prolong these proceedings either; I’d rather continue this arduous process hoping it will help move me through this most difficult period in my life.”
On the media and her four (living) sons:
“This may sound really cliché but you must NOT believe everything you read or hear and never judge… especially without solid facts and always, but always consider the source. Discernment is key. My boys are my entire world and I will fight tooth and nail to keep all of my sons together as a family, I pray for a swift, peaceful resolution so that we all can move forward.”
