According to, Usher filed for a divorce from his wife Tameka Foster in an Atlanta court this morning... developing...

Eyebrows were raised on April 25th when Tameka took to her Twitter page to announce that she was packing a bag for Usher Raymond V, aka Cinco, to travel with his dad to California. She posted other tweets saying Usher would have a rough time with his son on the flight. Her tweets gave all the indications of a man who didn't spend much time at home with his son.

Photos posted online days later of Usher IV and V splashing in the surf on South Beach without Tameka seemed to confirm the growing suspicions that all was not well between the odd couple.

Tameka will likely keep this Roswell, GA home that Usher paid under $3.3 million for in 2007

    YES Now's my chance!!!

  • Shauny

    Sandra this post deserved the EPIC FAIL title.

    Too little too late for Ursh who will be paying out the azz in spousal and child support. How many "I told ya so" comments will he hear? It only took him losing his career to see the

  • Shauny

    Oh chit, I just scrolled back up. The new girl kinda looks like the monkeys from The Wiz. I wonder if she's related to Lil Wayne.

    Meka's pic on the other hand looks nice.

  • LadyJustice

    all that fuss he made over people clowning tameka. boy done fired his momma over that girl and errthang.
    i think he only married her cuz she was pregnant. thats not the way to do things, people aint gone learn.

  • teeteek

    I knew this was coming...They day they got married.

  • spongebobfan

    I really hope that chick is not really his chick tho....

  • Kat

  • Nina

    Wow - I knew it would happen...but its so shocking to hear it being confirmed. That house is bad tho...I wonder what Meka's tweets looking like now!

  • LadyJustice

    how long were they married? 2 years?
    how she gone find a man now with 8 kids? tsk tsk tsk

  • spongebobfan

    *plays Nice and Slow on Ipod*

  • iyonah

    @ladyJustice .. I won't question why he married her ...

    My immediate thoughts are on Tameeka ... she has 5 kids all together now right???

  • NichelleWalker/

    I wonder if chilli still avab

  • iscream

    Another one bites the dust.

    Sandra what is she saying on twitter or has she shut the account down?

    Well, at least she got two kids out of the ordeal. So she'll be straight. Maybe this will make her a better woman/mother. Then again maybe not.

  • attorneymom

    Tameka Raymond will be alright. She can rely on the child support payments.

    Sidebar: I better stay away from Usher since he is into older married women. : - )

    On a serious note, this is sad. I hate to hear about couples divorcing when children are involved.

  • starr

    geees, didn't see this coming.....I think the divorce would of happened sooner if there wasn't a second baby

    he gave me the serious side eye...and LEFT!

    poor meka. welp she can get that surg. now i guess...(*shrugs*)

  • LadyJustice

    lol on twitter she put

    "Tameka Raymond - Damn, can they find some cute pictures!!!"

  • Coo Coo Bananas

    Of course they're divorcing. You saw what being in a relationship AND marrying did to his fanbase & record sales. Next up: Depression (the album) LOL.

  • Coo Coo Bananas

    Having a significant other who isn't a fellow 'celeb' ruins you. I'm glad someone told Trey Songz that before he came out with "I Need A Girl."

  • ELove

    I COULD BE wrong but it seems that Mrs. Raymond plan INCLUDED kids to begin with... AGAIN I could be wrong ??? LOL

  • ontaya brooks

    In Ike Turner voice" what Ima do with two mo kids?". Poor Usher, he dissed everybody for her and now she is going to put all his business out there. She is going to get paid you know that right?

  • masonmom

    we knew it wouldnt last, no surprise there!

  • Shauny

    @20 - so she is still twittering. I wonder if she'll comment on his latest married conquest.

  • talkingwithtami

    Funny thing to me is that in some marriages there is a pre nup and gag orders,confidentiality forms, and people cant talk about things. If the spouse dont comply,they dont get their cheese in divorce court ha! I wonder if she signed such a thing hmmm?

  • teecee

    why did he make a baby if he was going to leave her, hes a poor excuse of a man to bring a child into the world knowing he wasnt going to be there to raise him.

  • LadyJustice

    yup twittering like its not bothering her. she hasnt commented on the matter though... publicity stunt? sigh

  • Imalover

    I was really rooting for them... if true, I'm sad for them

  • NichelleWalker/

    I think its a trust factor she was dead wrong to fly somewhere and have a surgery without her husband knowledgement she could have died what if he told her not to do it. that was deep and prob the straw that broke the camels back just myh opin we will never know

  • masonmom

    she better sell that house!

  • masonmom

    oh trust and believe after that confessions album money she signed a pre-nup! i know ushers mama is shaking her head becuz its true MAMAZ KNOW BEST!!

  • Daisy

    I went to the source Sandra cited and I dont see this story. Maybe they are slow in updating their site.

    I wish both Usher and Tameka the best. They will both be fine. I also believe this could be a ploy to help him sell cds. Time will tell.

  • lovezoe

    Just not buying it. My husband leave me, happy or not, I am not going to be keeking it up on no website for the world to see.

  • attorneymom

    @ Elove, I concur with you 100%. If this is true, I would not be on twitter tweeting while my marriage is falling apart unless I did not give a ratz azz.

    Sidebar: She sure hurried up and had two babies right away.

  • Sandra Rose

    Usher might use Tameka's addictive Twitter habit as an excuse to take the kids away from her.

    Face the wall! for that one. LOL
    at least the kids have the same mother. Everyone knew this one was doomed from the start. It was so clear.

  • ELove

    MORE on your trust factor
    MY ex-wife wanted to have another child with me, she almost died having her first child from a previous relationship. I asked her ONE question, IF the doctor told you that if you had this child you would die... What would you do???

    She said she would have the child RATHER THAN abort and live her life... Needless to say I DIDN'T like that answer and NEVER had sex with her w/o a rubber throughout our BRIEF Union because I couldn't understand her logic at all ...

  • iscream

    Well people deal with things differently. Remember Jennifer Hudson sister was updating her myspace after the deaths.

    & I don't think her flying across the world for surgery is grounds for divorce. No marriage is perfect and you have to learn to work thru things. & that was workable.

    This could be a publicity stunt on Sandra's part if noone else is reporting this inc the source she cited. You know how much she loves Tameeka.

  • masonmom

    and wuz up wit j-hud tryin to hide her pregnancy! i mean we know she had a lil pouch but get real. she's clearly due any day now! does anyone watch real housewives for nj?

  • Daisy

    @Ice thank you I am not going

    @Mason I watch NJ housewvies.I dont get the J Hud thing either it is her right but she is so public with her engagement and what have you. My theory is she always felt her mother would be around to see her being a mother so maybe it's just hard for her I have no I am reaching and trying to make sense of it all.

  • SunnyPA

    The divorce news is all over the Internet. Someone suggested that Tameka should be on Real Housewives of Atlanta. I guess she can give Sheree a run for her money.

  • LadyJustice

    yea sandra why cant we find this info at your source??? lmao i done searched like 10 different ways on that site... and NOTHING if u just made that up SHAME ON U!!! lmao

    Is she suppose to hold a press conference to announce she is pregnant, LOL. She is not promoting anything righ now. My theory is that she feels no need to announce it because the baby came before the wedding and the fact that it was already leaked.
    I have watched a couple episodes of NJ Housewives and Danielle spent all that money to decorate and all I can say is "wow" and not in a good way. Her daughter seemed bratty.

  • texaspaine

    i hope they the marraige is over, cause i am tired of the lame music he been puting out. I need U_S_H_ER back. I need for him to go back to the days when "make u leave the one your with or slow jam" came out.

  • Naima

    I blame Sandra Rose for the divorce.

  • SunnyPA


  • Daisy

    @Anna STOP PLAYNG! You know there are things called press releases and interviews. She confirmed she was engaged and talks about it on the red carpet. Again its her CHOICE to remain quiet but like Mason I dont understand it either. I wish her the best either way!

    can someone tell me who made the sandals the other chick has on ...pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaseeeeeeee with a cherry on top :-)

  • bk2atl

    Maybe the 2nd baby and the following attempted surgery were her way of tyring to revive her dying marriage. She probably felt him slipping away. I guess now she sees that when a man has already emotinally left a marriage, him PHYSICALLY leaving is not too far off.

    @ E whoa that is something else. She want another baby of her own loins that bad she is willing to risk leaving the one she has on this earth with no mother? I don't like that answer either.

    I agree b2K # 53.

  • Kymystry

    I personally a. don't care ... b. don't believe it .... They were on the radio talkin about how this new Album "Monster" is supposed to be on the lines of "Confession" ... giving his fans insight into his life and where he's at right now ... I think the announcement is timed perfectly .. his Mother Johnetta is a managerial genius

  • KayCeiSoul

    This is awful. I don't feel that the plastic surgery incident was enough to make him leave (if he's truly leaving). If anything, he wasn't ready to begin with.

    I've heard of men getting married just to have kids (to avoid wedlock'ing, or as a cover-up) and want to put up that front for the public. Not saying it is, but if this was the case he should have considered the course his career could possibly take prior to doing it. All kinds of rumors are going to start flying, and having another woman on his arm is not going to stop them.

    If he truly loves Tameka (as he should, regardless of how people criticize her) they'll make amends before the ink dries. They haven't been married but a hot sec. Gosh. Hate to hear this.

  • spongebobfan

    The Grammy winner has been living apart from his wife for nearly a year after almost two years of marriage,” an 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. The couple has faced problems in the past. In November 2008, In Touch reported that Usher was flirting with girls at a party in Miami, and even asked a model what she was doing afterward. 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.”

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Sandra threatned to ban folks for doing this earlier today I assume that would apply to you as well. I had no idea it was breaking the rules and I didnt even post a site name just asked somebody what site they were trying to ref. Just an FYI

  • iscream

    I give Usher Props. Its better to move on and be happy than to stay in an unhappy relationship for whatever excuse you can conjure up in your head to stay.

  • heavn_sent

    'Bout time!

  • Daisy

    @Ice I agree. A man on a radio just said he believes couples should stay together for the kids even if they arent happy. I gave my radio the I disagree to the 10th power. I do feel some people are QUICK to divorce vs working through their problems but at the end of the day staying together only for the sake of the kids does not cut it for me.

  • KayCeiSoul

    Not trying to come for you or anything Isc., and this is just my feelings on the matter, but I can't give any couple props on a failed marriage of minimal time, that directly affects 5 kids, and has the media & paparazzi involved to heighten the blow. I can give them empathy and sympathy though, and hope that their lives will at some point come to a place of happiness and contentment.

  • KayCeiSoul

    ...And I definitely DO NOT believe in couples staying together for the kids, but there are some things that can be worked through.

  • JustSayin

    Elove.."Snoop filed for divorce and later changed his mind…
    And I can only assume that it was because he realized HOW MUCH he actually loved his wife"

    Or it was cheaper to keep her..Remember the Jordan's first "divorce"..I think they even did a post nup after the first divorce was withdrawn...


  • Bird

    Sandra Sandra Sandra. Eonline did not run this story nor has any other reputable site. I'll believe it when I see it on TMZ who loves nothing more than to post divorce papers on their site. Since they ran the jumpoff story I know they would have run the divorce story had it been true.

    "BREAKING NEWS":Usher Files For Divorce.




  • iscream

    @ Kaycei

    I hear where you are coming from trust me I do. But if the reports are true and he has been living out of the house for a year. All I can see in my head is Deb & Irv. One year can lead to many if someone doesn't make a stand. & Its better that their two kids are small so it won't be as much of a blow to them. As for her other upteen kids. They are probably happy that they are getting their momma back.

    Have you ever saw Usher, Tameeka & her kids out as a family? Do they even live with her? If this was a marrige built on love and not drama (I say that based on what was reported) then I could see them trying to give it ago. This monstrasty of a marrige has been falling apart right before our eyes... in the media for months. And they have only been married for about 24.

    But yeah I agree you should try and make it work for better or worst... if both parties want to make it work.

  • ELove

    @Just Sayin
    I WAS TRYING to be NOT SO SARCASTIC towards this alleged incident LOL YEAH we ALL KNOW why he did (what he did) LMAO

  • Liyah74

    Tameka Raymond had it coming. How you gonna leave your then husband at the time to be w/Usher. Then to top it off she let him get custody at that. Wow, its gonna be interesting if Usher ask for sole custody of the children, given she does not have custody of the two other children from her ex-husband.

  • Bird

    Thanks Daisy. I still don't believe it. Divorce filings are public. When some site posts those papers I'll believe it. There would be no need for In Touch to be quoting "a reliable source" if Usher had actually filed. I'm not saying it ain't coming, but until I see it on TMZ which is the only blog I frequent that at least tries to verify their stories I'm going to assume it has not happened.

  • Daisy

    Lol @ upteen kids

    @BB Yes V103 will use sandra for stories n a min lol

    remeber Confessions and the Chilli breakup?

    Yea, but, didn't they break up for real?

  • KayCeiSoul

    You're right Isc - I ain't "not never" seen them in public lady, you are so on point w/ that one :-)

    That's why I think if they're getting a divorce in the first quarter of the game, there were some underlying or superficial reasons for them getting married in the first place.

    I see where you're coming from too - I wouldn't want to..strike that...wouldn't ever stay with someone and be miserable. If it's a wrap, it's a wrap. The kids though...that's what tugs at my heart. All 5 of them.

  • pointhimout

    shyt, she aint keeping that house. im sure he'll sell it. she put in one good year out of the two years of marriage. she hasn't earned the right to keep that house. she wont. the house in CCOS is still on the market, so maybe she can get that one, considering it's probably where their effing around started anyways. So in essence, it'll bring back memories for her. Then she'll have a lifetime to think about the bed chilli laid in first and the toilet they both sat on to take a piss.

    again, the jig is up. now she'll have to change her "wife to one" on twitter to something else. maybe 'wife to someone who dont care being photographed with other women adn i can't believe he aint wearing that ring i bought him with his money.'

    unfortunately, she'll still come up, using the kids as paychecks. to read her quotes of inspirational shyt and stuff from the bible is sad. all the while, you know she's saying that shyt to convince herself of this 'advice.'

    the jig is up tameka. hand over your keys. a good dyck suck only gets u so much. look on the bright side--your gold diggers membership card has been upgraded to platiunum lifetime member.
