Usher files for divorce

The Superficial / June 11, 2009

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.)
