A source very close to R&B crooner Usher confirmed to Sandrarose.com last night that Usher is indeed following through on his plan to file for divorce from his estranged wife, and former stylist, Tameka Foster.
It must really suck to lose both a husband and a job at the same time.
Yesterday, several media outlets reported that Usher had filed for divorce from his wife in Atlanta.
Despite the fact that there is no divorce petition in Usher's name on file at the Fulton County Superior court, the inside source said (in so many words) that the divorce was a done deal.
Foster, who is 10 years Usher's senior, drew the ire of his fans when she left her husband and children to marry Usher's money.
For the past 6 weeks, Tameka has spent almost every waking moment on the social networking service Twitter.com fabricating lies about her relationship with Usher. She intentionally mislead almost 12,000 clueless followers -- most of them Usher fans.
When news broke last week that Usher was seeing another woman, Def Jam Records exec Grace Miguel -- Tameka downplayed the reports and referred to Miguel on her Twitter page as a "product manager for Justin's."
Usher and Tameka have lived separately over the past year. They married in a civil ceremony in their attorney's office in July, 2007 followed by a lavish wedding in an Atlanta suburb in August, 2007. They have two sons together, Usher Raymond V, 19 mos. and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 6 mos.
According to online news sources, Usher Raymond IV officially filed for divorce from his estranged wife Tameka Foster Raymond on Friday (6/12) at Fulton County Superior court. A hearing is scheduled for July 15 at 2:30 PM.
