R&B star Usher filed for divorce from his wife Tameka Foster Raymond on Friday, and sources report it’s because of another woman. Read more on Usher’s divorce below.
Usher Raymond IV filed divorce papers with the Superior Court in Atlanta, Georgia.
Usher, 30, and his wife Tameka, 38, were married in 2007 and have two children.
Sources report that friends and family are happy Usher is divorcing Tameka.
“He can’t dump Tameka fast enough. No one likes her. Since the day it became known he was dating Tameka, friends and family have been telling him she’s not right for him,” a source told Radaronline.
Usher’s mother, Jonetta Patton, even boycotted Foster and Usher’s August 2007 wedding after Tameka wanted to have her fired as Usher’s manager.
“And Tameka threatened to ban her own mother from the ceremony because her mom had lost her false teeth,” says the insider.
That ceremony didn’t happen but the couple got married a week later at a lawyer’s office. But their marriage has been very rocky.
“Tameka was fighting to save the marriage,” our source says. Even recently, when the singer “traveled to Cleveland for basketball play-offs last month, Tameka followed him. You had the farcical situation of Tameka running around town trying to find him and Usher ordering friends not to tell her where he was staying.”
