Honestly, I can’t think of an individual currently more deserving of a hug from heaven than Usher‘s ex-wife Tameka Raymond.

While Nicci Gilbert’s ankles clock in at a close second, I can’t begin to imagine what she is going through following their 5-year-old son Usher V‘s recent near-drowning experience.

During her appearance on ‘Good Morning America’ yesterday she explained that getting the horrifying phone call about Usher V sent her mind into instant deja-vu, recalling the July 2012 jet skiing accident that resulted in the death of her 11-year-old son Kile Glover.

“It was like I relived it. Like, my brain just went into all those modes . . . I even said on the phone, ‘I’ve had this call before,’” Tameka said.

Warning: The electric presence of the finest Monchichi to ever two-step out in the streets of Atlanta is enough to short-circuit an entire stage and cause a brief blackout.

Usher made the lights go out at ‘Jimmy Fallon’ go out when he hit up the late night show to chat it up about his new gig as a coach on ‘The Voice’ last night.

”This is very interesting,” Fallon said, as the lights went pitch black just as he was introducing the singer. ”No, this is good, you guys. This is the way he wants it to be lit.”

The man who gave the world Justin Bieber also discussed his unique sense of humor with the host. “I want to prepare you because you guys are gonna get used to a different person. My humor doesn’t always connect. I kinda branded myself,” he explained. “I’m the new Larry David. I’m the black Larry David. I’m kinda misunderstood. I curb your enthusiasm.”
