Tameka Raymond Comments on the Usher Bridesmaid Scandal
After agreeing to set the record straight on her ex, Usher Raymond, Tameka Raymond is discussing the claim that he had sex with two of her bridesmaids. In part one of her “Entertainment Tonight” interview that airs Tuesday, Sept. 25, Raymond says that the singer was honest about his infidelity with one of the two women.
“I think there’s been some reports that it was actually two bridesmaids that he cheated on you with,” said host Nancy O’Dell during the interview.
“Well he admitted to sleeping with one of the two,” said Raymond. “It was a very disappointing revelation. I had suspected for some time and you have to understand, this is like family to us. This is someone who was there when our children were born, she took me to the hospital when I was in labor with one of them. I hate to say it but I somewhat empathize with her because I feel that she was vulnerable and she fell into somewhat of a trap.”
When asked to expound on what she meant by a trap, the mother of five responded, “I feel that she got very close to him as a result of her being my friend and I feel as though he used it to his advantage. I think we all can admit he’s very charming.”
Before her telling interview, attorneys called out one of the women by name during the couple’s bitter custody battle. Tameka’s friend, Maya Fox Davis, was alleged to have slept with the singer during a family vacation.
