Usher's five-year-old son, Usher V, has been hospitalised after nearly drowning in an Atlanta swimming pool.

He reportedly fell to the bottom of a swimming pool and became stuck in a drain after trying to retrieve a toy.

The five-year-old is one of Usher's two sons from his relationship with Tameka Foster, whom he divorced in 2009 after two years together.

The 'You Got It Bad' singer was engaged in a lengthy legal fight with his ex-wife and was awarded primary custody of his two sons last year.

The incident came just over a year after the death of Tameka's stepson Kile following a jet ski crash.

TMZ reports Tameka has now reportedly filed for custody of their two children following Monday's pool accident, asking for an emergency hearing on grounds Usher is allegedly creating a 'dangerous environment' for the children'.
