Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Raymond has threatened to take the star to court, insisting he is not serious about his parenting responsibilities, according to a report.

Tameka Raymond is urging judges to order her former husband to be a better parent after branding him lazy and uncooperative when it comes to making important family decisions, according to editors at TMZ.com.

The “Yeah!” hitmaker, who holds primary custody over the former couple’s two children, Usher Raymond V,5,and Naviyd Ely,4, reportedly stormed out of a co-parenting class they were ordered to take together in July and has since shut his ex-wife out of the decision-making.

Tameka Raymond unsuccessfully tried to regain custody of her sons after Usher Raymond V ended up in an intensive care unit following an accident at the Usher’s father’s Atlanta, Georgia home in August.

REVIEW: ‘It Follows’ is the best American horror film in a decade

In this image released by Brigade Marketing, actress Maika Monroe appears in a scene of It Follows, directed by David Robert Mitchell. “It Follows,” has been arguably the buzziest American film at Cannes next to Bennett Miller’s wrestling drama “Foxcatcher,” which boasts a far more famous cast and a major premiere at the Palais des Festival.

"It Follows" is a horror movie worthy of classic comparisons.
