During trial yesterday, Usher shared details of a time in which Foster, spit and tried to fight his girlfriend, Grace Miguel, when he went to Foster's home to drop off one of their two sons.

Usher continued to say that he got hit and got food thrown at him by Tameka when he had to get between Tameka and Miguel, which was still seated in the passenger seat. "Of course, I tried my hardest to prevent the situation from escalating … but (Foster) continued to swing, spit, at this point she had pulled the door open and began to pull Ms. Miguel," Usher said, according to ABC News.

When interrogated by Foster's lawyers on his partying in Europe back in February, Usher teared up. Usher continued to be asked about his alleged drug use. Usher admitted to smoking weed, according to TMZ, but Usher's lawyer objected when questioned about his alleged use of ecstasy.

While attending to the ongoing trial against Foster, Usher is prepping for the release of his seventh studio album, 'Looking 4 Myself' (June 11).
