Usher files for divorce

June 11th, 2009 // 56 Comments

Usher and his wife Tameka Raymond are hopping on the break-up bandwagon. Divorce papers were filed this morning, according to InTouch:

“The Grammy winner has been living apart from his wife for nearly a year after almost two years of marriage,” the insider exclusively tells In Touch, adding, “Usher’s primary concern is for his children. He is a great father and just wants to do what is right for them.” The soon-to-be exes have two kids together, Usher Raymond V, 18 months, and Naviyd, 6 months. And the insider says that it’s more than just talk — the divorce papers were filed in Atlanta this morning.
And in February, In Touch revealed that although Usher flew to Tameka’s side after she suffered cardiac arrest from cosmetic surgery in Brazil, he “had no idea that she was there to have surgery.”

This explains why Usher was surrounded by strippers immediately after Tameka’s near-death experience. Here I thought he was the Second Coming of Christ, and nobody wanted to admit it because he’s black. (Don’t act like it wouldn’t happen.)

    I’m stunned. I thought he wanted to be married to the mummy.

  5. MrChips

    What’s the matter? Her dick’s not big enough?

  6. mikeock

    Imagine that. A black guy ditches his wife. Never heard of that happening before.

  7. Abdo

    Damn man!! you have a bad taste for women
    that’s the best you got!!!!
    diffidently that thing is good for you..congrats!

    Black divorce papers should be filed with their marriage licenses. Way to escalate that single parent ratio Usher!

    Oooga Booga. Those black broads can pump em out can’t they? Man. I bet she calculated (on her fingers) how much $ she’d make for each one. Well, at least society has one more single parent colored family.

    @9

    What marriage licenses?

  14. p0nk

    he should give up on trannies, the surgery for a working penis is just too risky. The search for a natural hermaphrodite is on.

  15. gotmilk?

    yeah, this is shocking… isn’t she twice his age or something?

  16. SickOfIgnorance

    No by no means do I want to dispute the fact that Tameka was a golddigger from Day 1, but that’s definitely something only black people do right? I mean Anna Nicole (RIP) truly loved her 300-year-old husband right? And Brad Pitt getting it on with Angelina Jolie while Jennifer Aniston was excited about the release of his awesome action-packed movie co-starring his new piece of @&$ wasn’t wrong either? Or the nice tidbit on this site that Mel Gibson is expecting a baby, YEA, by his MISTRESS isn’t proof that white people are unfaithful either? Human-beings make human mistakes. PS… The KKK lost a battle this week @ a rally, get over it!

    that’s a man baby. . . .

    # 9: Well what do you want.. Most blacks don’t get married, because they don’t have the $$$ to file for divorce, when they cheat. Whites get married so that they can get $$$$ after they cheated.
    #7: White guys never ditch their wives, point taken. They usually buy a cute suburban house , make couple of kids, and bang their black secretary on the side, when the white one is on a maternity leave.
    #13: Thanks to (white) anti-abortion freaks like Roeder, we r proud to announce you that white underaged teens / single moms, r on the rise, CUNT. Read again ;-)

    “#13: Thanks to (white) anti-abortion freaks like Roeder, we r proud to announce you that white underaged teens / single moms, r on the rise, CUNT. Read again ;-)”

    True. In fact, if the birth rate for unmarried white women continues to rise, in only about a century or two it’ll approach the rate for unmarried black women.

  20. AW75

    Absolutely true. And in less than a century, the vast majority of this nation will be soooo non white (what you do want.. stats say that blacks, beaners, asians and arabs, r making babies like crazy in this country, single moms or not!!! Haven’t you heard? lol) that our poor little white kids will be at the mercy of all the other colored kids.. Raised by single moms. Fuck man! What are you gonna do? lol

  21. Didnt she get into this with 3 kids? she should take him to the cleaners,,,thatll learn him…

  22. Jesse

    “our poor little white kids will be at the mercy of all the other colored kids.. Raised by single moms. Fuck man! What are you gonna do? lol”

    Sit back and count my money.

    There are more and more coloreds every day. There are not more and more successful coloreds. Yeah, I know: Obama. Don’t quote me isolated cases. Blacks in particular where going nowhere economically, and that was before the big recession/depression. Guess which group lost the most jobs and has spent the longest time still looking for a new job? Life is tough on the bottom rung. Or so I hear.

  23. choql8

    Not to be racist –

    BUT DAMN THESE PPL IS BLACK!

  24. dirk

    Cut the shit. 75% of black babies are born as bastards (out of wedlock). The kids get no supervision – No father figure (except bad) – No help with school work – No parent/teacher interaction – No rules – No moral teaching – NOTHING. and when they grow up. REPEAT REPEAT REPEAT REPEAT.

    And guess what? Working tax payers pay for their births, healthcare, dental care, day care, school lunches, food stamps, welfare, etc etc etc. Then when they grow up to commit a (huge number of crimes per capita) WE PAY FOR THAT TOO. Keep your dicks in your pants, Close your fucking whore legs, and get your hands off my fucking hard earned money. Animals.

    you know what would solve the divorce problem? not getting married. marriage is for the boring, the ugly, and the hopeless.

  26. Amy

    Dearest #26: I am not boring, ugly, or hopeless. I married my husband because he is the most wonderful person in the world and sex with him is better than with anyone else. No, we don’t cheat on one another either. Yay. Okay, back to marriage bashing and saying that I’ve been cheated on and just don’t know it in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1….

  27. Diva

    Usher is a LOSER.

  28. tee

    When did it become a race issue? No matter what race u are divorce happens..It’s frowned upon because he is a celeb and she is a gold digging woman..I believe she produced children so that she will be financially stable for the rest of her life..Touching on the race card it doesnt matter what race u are if u decide not to do the right things in life thats on u..U are responsible for ur actions..It doesnt matter if u were raised in a single parent home the only thing that ur parent can do is give u guidance its up to u what u decide to do with it..But white, black, purple or pink doesnt make a difference..U are who u are becasue of U…And for the record all black women arent gold diggers just like all white women arent poor white trash.

  29. Disgruntlord

    that dudes gonna take him for everything he’s worth

  30. Funeral Guy

    This isn’t a race issue. This is a man marrying another man issue.

  31. They are better than slut Angelina Jolie and two timing Brad Pitts

  32. ruserious

    These racist comments are a joke? I hope so because most of these celebrities are white and so is the divorce rate. Blacks are the minorities, remember. You hardly ever see blacks stars in the media like you see Paris Hilton Lindsey Lohan, to name a few, acting the fool. Most black actresses are married or stable. The whites are the one that get drunk and act the fool all over. So these terrible racist remarks are ridiculous!!

  33. the penis of usher's wife

    #18 is correct…

  34. AW75

    @ 23: Comment fail. I was talking about minorities, moron. Not just Blacks. You missed the point, but again, it wouldn’t be the first time..
    @33: Yep! Ridiculous!
    Bottom line being, some bloggers feel that race is a factor to comment on celebrities filling divorce papers. Pathetic. I guess when you r a white loser, race is pretty much all you have left to feel good about Blacks making big fat duckets.. That and impoverished single moms raising colored kids in the ghetto.. lol

  35. my comment

    Why would anyone with that much money get plastic surgery in Brazil!

  36. ToeJamSession

    Anyone else think that Usher looks like a baby chimp>?

  37. kingcash

    Not surprising. He’s probably tired of putting a bag over her head during sex. Or better yet, a bag over his head.

  38. your #1 fan

    This comment is for #25
    The school I teach at is made up of 90% white 5% black and 5% other and all of white students in my class are all children of single woman. The majority of the mother have been to jail for meth and they receive public assistance, you know foodstamps, medicaid, and voucher to the battered women shelters. My black and spanish students have both parents at home with them. So #25 shut up!!!!!!! I’m black and parents were married when my brother and I were both born, but they got divorced. My mom RN father owns his own construction business that has white guys working from him that he has bailed out of jail for not paying childsupport. I have my Masters in Education and so do my brother. My father excellent father figure he probably is much better than yours that why you know so much about no good fathers

  42. amused

    LOL! This was some of the funniest sh** I’ve read in a long time. I have never commented on any site, but I really just wanted to say, you all are complete morons. Go read a book.

  43. RaraAvis

    Y’all can talk statistics and race and all this other crap, but what I see is two little babies named Usher and Naviyd who will never experience life in a two-parent home. That makes me sad.

  44. AW75

    #42: As a general rule, people who read books, are not posting on a celebrity blog called the superficial.
    You being – of course- the glaring exception, considering the depth (and width) of your comment.
    (Yet another troll with the delusion of grandeur)

    When we say something like ‘masks will fall’ that doesn’t mean that everybody have to break-up and divorce imediately!
