Tameka Foster-Raymond Releases Public Statement After Son’s Death + Continues To Fight For Custody
No doubt, the last few weeks have been extremely trying and the struggle to wrap ones mind around the events that took place in the Foster family recently is real. After news of Tameka Foster-Raymond’s son Kyle Glover being critically injured and placed on life support hit the media circuits, people from all over gathered to send their condolences and prayers for the young man, however time was not on his side and he was laid to rest last week.
In light of the tragic situation, Usher Raymond who is Kyle’s step-father, was rumored to have rushed to Tameka’s side to help her cope with the tragedy however amongst other rumors, it is said that Usher has now decided to continue forth with the intense custody battle against Tameka despite her having just lost a child.
Although Tameka is adamant that she was perfectly fine with the previous joint custody arrangements, in a public letter to supporters and concerned individuals that was posted via Global Grind, Tameka thanked the public for their love and concern and then moved on to explaining her reasons for continuing to fight against her ex-husband for custody.
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 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. People seem to be privy to only my filed responses as ‘Defendant’ to the initiation of this case (Jan 4, 2011), when I have only been defending myself and protecting the best interests of my children through my counsel. I cannot control how the media reports are written/slanted/spun or even how court documents may be manipulated in their attribution of certain statements as if they are direct “quotes” from me- yet I can control what I actually say myself.
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.
