A judge ruled that Usher will maintain custody after the near-drowning of 5-year-old Usher Raymond V.

Usher will maintain primary custody of his two sons after an emotional day in court.

Ex-wife Tameka Foster filed an emergency request for primary custody after an incident on Monday that left the couple's son Usher Raymond V in the hospital. The 5-year-old boy came close to drowning under the watch of Usher's aunt, Rena.

"That's chaos, that's chaos," Foster said, breaking into tears after describing the former couple's other son, Naviyd, jumping into the pool to try to rescue his brother.

However, according to TMZ, a judge ruled that the pair's current custody status would remain in place. Usher Raymond V is still hospitalized.

The former couple finalized their divorce in 2012, three years after Usher filed for the split.
