(CBS SF/AP) – A judge in Atlanta has dismissed an emergency request by R&B singer Usher’s ex-wife seeking temporary custody of their two children.

Oakland-born Tameka Foster Raymond had requested the hearing earlier this week after their 5-year-old son got caught in a pool drain while in the care of the Grammy winner’s aunt. After a hearing in which both Usher and Raymond took the stand, Fulton County Superior Court Judge John Goger dismissed her request for temporary primary custody and decision-making authority.

Raymond’s court filing had said their son “suffered a near-death accident” while left unsupervised at Usher’s home Monday.

Usher and Tameka Raymond married in 2007 and divorced two years later. They went through a lengthy child custody battle, and Usher was awarded primary custody of the boys last year.
