Usher has denied his estranged wife Tameka Raymond’s claims that he was a bad father to their children and had cancelled her credit card.

He disputed the allegations in his response filed in court to her plea to gain full custody of their kids.

According to, in his court papers the R&B singer denies being a bad father to sons Usher V, 3, and Naviya, 2 or having cancelled Raymond’s Saks 5th Avenue credit card and the Special Benefits that come with it, which was one of her primary complaints in the initial court filings, according to the New York Daily.

Raymond, who has accused Usher of using drugs around their children, was also upset that the singer would tote the kids outside the state without first asking her permission, which he is legally supposed to do.

The court documents also claimed that Usher currently owes his ex-wife 34,000 dollars in nanny fees and child support money that has accumulated over time.

The two got married in 2007 and were married two years before filing for divorce in June 2009.

The hearing for the case has been set for February 27.
