Usher wants to settle custody battle in wake of jet ski tragedy

Usher wants to settle his messy custody battle with ex-wife Tameka Raymond.
The 33-year-old singer is keen to sort out a deal after his 11-year-old stepson Kyle Glover - the child of Tameka and her former partner Ryan Glover - was hit by a jet ski earlier this month and pronounced brain dead on Monday (09.07.12).
Sources close the couple have told TMZ that Usher spoke to his lawyers earlier this week and asked them to construct a new proposal that will give Tameka 'a majority' custody of their two sons, Usher Raymond V, four, and three-year-old Naviyd Ely Raymond.
Usher is also said to be raising his child support offer 'significantly' after Tameka reportedly refused an offer from him over the weekend that stipulated a 50/50 share of custody and a very slight increase in child support.
Although no offers are thought to have been presented to Tameka yet, insiders believe she is open to a 'reasonable settlement'.
Usher is said to have been left 'completely devastated' and 'distraught' following the jet ski incident.
A source recently said: 'Usher is completely devastated and shaken with what has occurred.
'[He] is emotionally drained from the accident. He feels incredibly awful, distraught ... it's been a complete rollercoaster of emotions.'
