We may have met Tameka Raymond when she became Usher’s wife, but just because their marriage ended, doesn’t mean that her motherhood duties did, too. She is the mom of 5 children – all boys – Darrin, 21, whose father was murdered before he was born; Ryan, 12, and Kile, 10, whose father is Tameka’s first husband, music executive Ryan Glover; and Cinco, 4, and Naviyd, 3, her kids with Usher.

She recently spoke to Uptown about balancing work (she’s the owner of two businesses) and romance:

On her custody battle with Usher:

He is a man very accustomed to having his way. This has nothing to do with how I parent. Trust me, I never will have a desire to keep a man away from his kids. I am not June Cleaver or head of the PTA, but I know I am a good mother.

On dating:

I am dating. It’s refreshing. I have not been single in a while. I got divorced and married in the same year. It was a run-on relationship. I don’t bring men around my children. They have never met an ‘Uncle Tony.’ The two that I did bring around, I married.

On what she looks for in a man:

A lot of guys like to play games. I like a man that’s a boss. I am not the dominant one. But a lot of the ones with the right mindset wear OshKosh overalls. And if they are not fly, I don’t like them.
