The music industry is mourning the death of well-respected music executive Chris Lighty, 44, who shot himself to death following an argument with his ex-wife, Veronica, Thursday morning.

Usher’s Wife-Tameka Raymond To Appeal Custody Decision

Despite having put up strong arguments like Usher being on the road all the time and she (Tameka) having a stable schedule to take care of the two kids, Judge Lane who presided over the Usher Raymond v Tameka Raymond custody case granted Usher full custody of the children last Friday…

Disappointed mother-Tameka, who recently lost her son to death is said to be strongly considering an appeal against the court’s decision to grant Usher custody.

According to what TMZ is saying,

Tameka feels the ruling was unfair. We’re told Tameka recently found out that Usher’s lawyer’s law firm threw an election fundraiser back in 2008 for the judge who presided over the trial … and she feels that connection may have influenced the ruling.

According to the campaign contribution report for Judge Lane, the law firm that represented Usher raised $1,278 for Lane in March 2008.

Tameka who still cannot believe the decission and thinks it was greatly influenced by MONEY took to twitter saying…

Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes Divorce Settlement, Katie Holmes Is Getting….

When Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes announced that they were going their separate ways, many were shocked…

Interestingly, their financial settlement and custody issue did not become a long legal drama…

Details of how much Katie Holmes is getting has come out after everything was sealed on Monday in a NY Court…

According to TMZ;

Katie Holmes walked away with nothing other than rather modest child support in her divorce from Tom Cruise … and we at TMZ have the breakdown.

Sources familiar with documents filed with the court tell TMZ … Katie got no lump sum payout, which is consistent with the prenup which essentially shuts her out of Tom’s $250 million fortune.

As for spousal support … Katie got zip.

Katie will get money for child support, but it’s way less than a judge could have ordered. According to the settlement, Tom must pay Katie $400,000 a year in child support. That comes to $33,333.33 a month. The money will be paid by electronic transfer.

Tom must pay Suri’s support for the next 12 years — until she turns 18. All tolled, that comes to $4.8 million.

Tom must also pay Suri’s expenses, including medical, dental, insurance, education, college and extracurricular costs.

And … both Tom and Katie agree that Suri will NOT attend a “residential school” from now through her high school years. Translation — she can’t be shipped off to boarding school — Scientology or otherwise.

Katie could have gotten more child support under New York law if the case went to trial, but both she and Tom decided to settle quickly.

We reported early on … Katie said she wanted nothing from Tom other than a divorce — well that’s exactly what she got.
