Usher took the stand Tuesday.
ATLANTA -- The bitter custody battle between Atlanta R&B star Usher Raymond and his estranged wife Tameka Foster took center stage in a Fulton County courtroom Tuesday.
Much of Tuesday morning's testimony surrounded a fight involving Foster, Usher and his current girlfriend Grace Miguel, after the star was late bringing the kids back from an arranged meeting.
When a lawyer asked Usher why he didn't have his wife arrested for hitting him and Miguel during the altercation, the singer testified that he didn't want his kids to hear that their father had had their mother arrested.
Much of the testimony Tuesday afternoon focused on child care, specifically payment and time spent with the children.
Foster's attorney, Lisa West, questioned Raymond about his work schedule, including planned video shoots and business ventures, attempting to show that he did not spend sufficient time with his two sons.
Usher and Tameka Foster Raymond married in 2007 and divorced almost two years later. The two currently share custody of their sons, ages 3 and 4, and are fighting for sole custody.
The trial has been going on for several weeks and will continue until July 18.
