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.

    He explained the meaning behind Sovereign's name:

    "So, Sovereign, man, is such a beautiful word and name to me, you know, a supreme ruler is obviously the defined name. She's definitely ruling the household, but Sovereign Bo — Bo is at the end of it, so (she's) my little 'reign-bo.' "

    The singer was also previously married to music executive Grace Miguel from 2015 to 2018.

    Yesterday, I told you about a Los Angeles stylist who accused Usher Raymond of shoplifting. Now more stories about Usher's sticky fingers have surfaced online.

    On Monday, April 12, Brian Jimenez tweeted: "When I used to work retail, usher walked in and tried on a $2,000 jacket. He chopped it up for a bit while still having it on. Then this dude dabs me up and walks out with the jacket."

    Now another Twitter user claims Usher was banned from the New York boutique where she worked for walking out without paying for merchandise.

    Usher apparently perfected his boosting game. He would try on merchandise and then simply "forget" he had it on.

    A Twitter user wrote: "Usher was banned from my store for this same sh*t."

    She added:

    "I feel like I need to clarify this isn’t a current employer, this was 10 years ago in Soho when I worked at Atrium. He was banned and so was his ex-wife. He would just steal, she would just try to return sh*t he clearly wore covered in make up."

    Apparently, boosting is common among celebrities. Boutiques normally eat the loss -- especially if the celebrity spends thousands of dollars in the store in previous or future visits.

    A Los Angeles stylist caused a buzz on Twitter.com when he accused R&B crooner Usher Raymond of stealing a $2,000 jacket from a boutique.

    The allegation comes after a stripper accused Usher of passing fake "Usher Bucks" at the Las Vegas strip club where she works.

    The stripper, @beel0ove, took to Twitter to post a photo of the bills.

    "Ladies what would you do if you danced all night for usher and he threw this??" she asked. The dancer asked her followers to "blast" the father-of-three for passing fake bucks.

    However, a source tells Page Six it was a big misunderstanding.

    "He and his crew converted thousands of real dollars to tip the girls dancing on the stage," and "left a generous tip for the staff!"

    Sources close to Usher tell TMZ that somebody in his crew left some Usher Bucks behind on the stage as a joke. But the ladies weren't laughing. They work hard for the money.
