Usher speaks out on custody battle


Usher will opened up about his infamous custody battle in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The international singer was embroiled in a bitter dispute with his former spouse Tameka Foster over their children Usher Raymond V, four, and three-year-old Naviyd Ely.

Usher won primary custody in August and has spoken about the ordeal for the first time to chat show host Oprah.

A preview of the candid interview shows Oprah sitting in Usher's Atlanta home, asking questions about fidelity, his mother and his children.

Last year, the 33-year-old famously broke down and walked off the stage during a concert in Berlin.

"I felt like I would never perform again," Usher admits during the clip.

The star was accused of cheating on his wife during the bitter custody battle - an issue he also discusses on the show.

However, Oprah ensures the interview also broaches some light-hearted subjects.

The chat show host brazenly asks him if he makes love to his own music.

The singer responds with laughter in the clip and quips: "I love that!"

Oprah's Next Chapter starring Usher is airing in America on Sunday.
