Tameka Foster Raymond is set to publish her new memoir titled Here I Stand . . . in a Beautiful State.
The memoir covers Tameka's career, her marriage to pop singer Usher Raymond, her divorce, her son Kile Ishmael Glover's death in 2012, and dealing with Instagram stalkers.
According to Eurweb.com, Tameka decided to document her life story after speaking with three women on a beach in Bali.
Tameka was surprised when they insisted there was no way she could be Usher's ex-wife because his wife had died.
The title of the book is inspired by Usher's fifth studio album, Here I Stand (2008).
The album was followed up by Usher's 6th studio release, Raymond v. Raymond, which was recorded in 2009 amid their contentious divorce.
Usher married Tameka, his former stylist, in 2007 after dating for two years. They share two sons, Usher "Cinco" Raymond V, 13, and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 12.
Usher filed for divorce in June 2009 in Atlanta.
Tameka said her book will clear up many misconceptions about her life after divorce.
She said the book's title is "a double-entendre. Here I stand after going through all the media crap, the divorce, the loss, the grief."
Here I Stand ... in a Beautiful State is available for pre-order beginning July 25, 2021, online at https://www.tamekaraymond.com. Hardback copies retail for $26.00 and paperback copies retail for $21.00.
