A judge in Atlanta has dismissed an emergency request by R&B singer Usher's ex-wife seeking temporary custody of their two children.
Tameka Foster requested the hearing yesterday, a day after the couple's five-year-old son became caught in a pool drain while in the care of the Grammy Award winner's aunt.
After a hearing in which both Usher and Ms Foster took the stand, Superior Court Judge John Goger dismissed her request.
Following the ruling, Usher approached his ex-wife and gave her a hug.
