ATLANTA (AP) - Grammy-winning R&B singer Usher has been awarded custody of his two sons, ending a long legal fight with his ex-wife.

Fulton County Court Clerk's office spokeswoman Cherrise Boone says a judge ruled Friday that the 33-year-old singer will have primary custody of Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely Raymond. His custody will start Sept. 1.

Boone says Usher and his ex-wife Tameka Foster Raymond will have joint legal custody.

Usher, whose real name is Usher Raymond IV, married Tameka Raymond in 2007. They divorced two years later.

Usher testified in May that Tameka Raymond spit at and tried to fight his girlfriend during one visit and that his ex-wife hit him during the dispute. Tameka Raymond's attorney claims that Usher provoked her client and that his account is exaggerated.
