Usher's ex-wife is reacting to a judge's ruling giving the singer primary physical custody of their two sons.

"Money can buy many things... But in the end. Truth & goodness will prevail," Tameka Foster tweeted after the news broke. "I must continue to believe this. Stand firm."

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane on Friday awarded the Grammy winner primary physical custody of Usher Raymond V, 4, and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 3.

Usher and Foster, however, will still have joint legal custody of the children and visitation has yet to be determined for Foster.

In another tweet, Foster wrote: "A woman's loyalty is tested when her man has nothing... A mans loyalty is tested when he has everything!"

That was followed by this message: "Don't fear the enemy that attacks you... Fear the fake friend that hugs you. There's not much worse."

Usher, whose real name is Usher Raymond IV, and Foster wed in 2007 before divorcing two years later. The couple had been separated since summer 2008, according to the singer and that there was "no reasonable hope" for any type of reconcilation.

Earlier this year, Usher testified that Foster attempted to fight his girlfriend during a visit and that she hit him during the encounter, but did not press charges. Foster's lawyer claimed that Usher provoked her.
