Atlanta's local paper The Atlanta Journal ran a blurb in its online edition disputing media reports that Usher filed divorce papers in an Atlanta court today.
According to the AJC, news of Usher's filing prompted "a flood of media inquiries to the clerk’s office."
No such filing was found in a check of court records, however. That doesn't mean Usher won't eventually file since their marriage is officially a wrap.
At any rate, neither camp has issued a public statement. And something tells me they won't. But maybe this waiting game is all part of a grand scheme to keep Usher's name in the news?
If that's the case, we're all getting played. So remember that when it comes time for his album to drop.
Jawn Murray, who writes for AOL Black Voices and the NY Daily News -- both reputable news sources, just confirmed the rumors. So the media knows something we don't.
