Sources connected with the couple say Usher spoke with Tameka over the weekend and suggested that they settle up, but he did not significantly change his offer — 50/50 custody with a very slight increase in child support. Tameka said no way.
But apparently Usher softened after the conversation, because our sources say he met with his lawyers earlier this week and instructed them to craft a new proposal that would give Tameka “a majority” of custody, though the sources did not specify the exact breakdown. Usher is also raising his child support offer “significantly.”
As for Usher’s motivation, he’s very conscious that Tameka is suffering and it’s not a good move to continue the fight under the circumstances.
The offer has not been presented to Tameka yet, but sources say she’s open to a “reasonable settlement.”
Calls to lawyers on both sides have not been returned.
