Two days after a scary pool accident sent Usher's oldest son, Usher V, to the hospital, the 5-year-old is doing "okay," according to his mother, Tameka Foster. But the drama may not be over yet.
Foster has requested an emergency child-custody hearing to regain primary custody of the couple's two children, Usher V and Naviyd, 4, reports TMZ.
"Now that it's sunk in, she is livid," says a source close to Foster. "Usher has custody and won't let Tameka have the kids, even when he's out of town. She feels like the kids are being raised by his family or by nannies, when they should be with their mother."

"We'll be able to sleep tonight, and to see one of these girls win, we would be just as excited," Colton said. "We want to win, don't get us wrong, but they are just great people. The both deserve it."

Will the winner of this season's The Voice be a little bit country? Or whole lot indie rock?
The three remaining acts on the singing competition made it tough for voters on Monday, each turning out distinctive performances on the show's energetic live final competition, which saw coaches Blake Shelton and Usher take heartfelt meetings with the artists and their families.
Predictions for the winner came directly from the judges themselves, with Adam Levine who quickly called it for Texas teen Danielle Bradbery, the show's youngest competitor. At just 16, she covered hits by a host of Nashville's powerhouse female singers including Patty Loveless, Pam Tillis and Sara Evans.
"I am insanely jealous of Blake for snagging you, from the beginning," Levine teased. "Your voice is so unbelievably powerful and perfect. I think Danielle is the winner of this thing."
