More than a week after her son’s near-drowning in a family pool, Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Raymond sat down for an interview with “Good Morning America” to tell her side of story.

Raymond requested an emergency custody hearing a day after the former couple’s 5-year-old son got caught in a pool drain while in the care of Usher’s aunt in Atlanta.

A judge dismissed her request for decision-making authority after hearing from both sides in court.

Usher was allowed to retain primary custody of Usher V and 4-year-old Naviyd Ely.
