Tameka Foster says she doesn’t blame her ex-husband Usher for a pool accident that sent her oldest son to the hospital on Aug. 5. But she is angry that it happened when he was away and she was not there to protect the boy herself.
Speaking to Good Morning America’s Dan Abrams on Wednesday, Foster, 42, recounted the dreaded phone call she got from Usher, 34, saying it brought her back to the moment when she lost her son Kile Glover last year in a jet ski accident on Georgia’s Lake Lanier.
“I said, ‘I’ve had this call before,’ ” Foster said Wednesday. “I didn’t blame him for it. I was just angry that it happened on his watch. Never have my children been injured on my watch.”
After 5-year-old Usher Raymond V, who goes by Cinco, was released from an Atlanta hospital Tuesday, Usher posted a photo on Instagram of his son smiling and playing games. A blue bandage is visible on his arm, which was caught in a pool drain, holding him under water before he was rescued by employees working inside the singer’s Atlanta home.
