The Fulton County Superior Court has been in the news recently thanks to popular singer Usher. Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Raymond filed papers in Fulton County Superior Court in February 2012. Tameka is asking Usher to pay $50,000 to cover her attorney’s fees in the couple’s custody battle plus an additional $35,000 for other costs. This custody battle is destined to draw attention because the ex-wife is claiming that Usher abuses drugs and other harmful substances, making him a not-so-fit-father-figure for their two children to be around. Given Usher’s popularity and large fan following, this case is bound to draw a lot of media attention to Fulton County.
