The ‘Yeah’ singer – who has children Usher Raymond V, four and three-year-old Naviyd with ex-wife Tameka Raymond – is adamant he is not an “absentee” parent as his former spouse has previously claimed, and insists being a dad is one of the most important things in his life.

He said: “Absentee from the aspect of having to go and work, that probably would be her version or idea of what absentee would be. But no, I’m not an absentee father at all.

“I was born to do what I’m doing as a dad. I realised that once I had a child. When I had them, that’s when they became a priority.”

Tameka recently lost custody of the two children to Usher, and he claims their bitter court battle over the kids means they are unlikely to ever be close again.

Speaking on TV show ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’, he said: “We don’t see eye-to-eye. The friend that I was to Tameka, I don’t know that I could ever be again, because I really felt like we were friends. She made us enemies in a way that I could never have understood. It wasn’t until I was on the stand, where I cried, that I realised, ‘Oh this is an attack.’ ”
