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.)

    Wow, I didn’t think that the majority of these comments would center around race, but be that as it may, I totally agree with #43. I have my Master’s Degree and I work in the juvenile justice system. The majority of the white kids I deal with, come from two-parent homes and they commit crimes, because they are strung out on all kinds of drugs, and guess what, their parents are always in denial, because it’s only supposed to be the uneducated black kids committing crimes, not their kids!

    I don’t know where #43 and #52 work, but statistics show that black kids are committing crimes. I too work in the justice system and although blacks are a minority, they MAJORLY commit more crimes. And the facts also show 75% are born out of wedlock, that is shameful honestly, blacks don’t know shame I guess, they don’t act like it anyway.

    And yeah… Usher’s wife is one ugly boon.

    He was an ass he didnt listen to his mothr that that woman was out to get him and as a result he got just what he deserved. She ran game and now shes getting spousal support child support houses property and money im sure and all because he was young and didnt see what he was dealing with. Im sorry but being in the position he is and was just seems to me tht he should be able to spot game from a mile away and if he cant someone in his camp could ie. his mom only he was too hardheaded to listen. sure his money is hella long but just imagine if he would have listened ……… Buttttt its too late for all that now.


    GOOD! I know both of them, and she is a frickin BITCH… big time

    She thinks she’s somebody.. HA! try again.
