Denied the marriage crisis reports addressed to him recently, Usher has just been reported to have filed for divorce from Tameka Foster. Rumor has it that the R&B artist has filed for divorce papers three weeks ago, but is still unsure whether to make a public announcement or simply let the news "leak" out.

Gossip website theyoungblackandfabulous.com was the first to make public the report. It claimed, "Extremely reliable sources close to Mr Raymond himself have confirmed to us that Usher has indeed filed for separation from his wife of only nine months Tameka Raymond. I'm told he actually filed three weeks ago. And Usher is torn on whether he will be making an official announcement or not as he wants to save face and just let it 'leak'".

Still according to the website, the divorce possibly is an alleged publicity stunt for Usher's highly anticipated LP "Here I Stand" which is expected to marry the street Tuesday, May 27.

"How convenient that his album releases in exactly six days, his second video hit the net today, and his album leaked yesterday," the website wrote. "We've been here before with the pre-album release publicity stunts."

Neither Usher nor Tameka speaks about the report.

Usher and Tameka, a stylist, have been married since August 3 last year. They are parents to son Usher Raymond V, who was born November later that year.

Online reports recently surfaced suggesting the couple split in April. Usher's manager Benny Medina denied the split reports, insisted they were still together. "It's 100 per cent not true. Usher and Tameka are currently traveling in Europe together as a family on his promotional tour," Benny claimed.

YOUR CHILDREN NEED TOW PARENTS ALL THE TIME,BECAUSE IT IS A FULL TIME JOB,YOU MIGHT BE HAPPY,BUT HAVE YOU BOTH ASKED THEM HOW DOES THEY REALLY FEEL OR HAVE YOU DIVORCED THEM TOO?YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN LIVE WHAT THEY LEARN AND LIVE IN THE HOME.FROM BOTH PARENTS,BUT WHEN ALL WE KNOW IS RUN RUN RUN AWAY AND LEAVE ME THIS IS WHAT WE SAY IS OK TO OUR CHILDREN,SO THEY GROW UP DOING THE SAME TO THEIR FAMILY,AND MOTHERS,LET YOUR BOYS BE A MAN AND HOLD HIS ONW RESPONSIBILITIES OF HIS FAMILY.AND YOU STAY HOME WITH YOUR MAN.OK A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS MOM AND DAD AND(CLING TO HIS OWN WIFE).

all of you that is speaking against tihs marriage,somewhere alone the line you forgot what the bible says on marriage and divorce only adultry between a man and his wife is what really seperate them.so read your bible and live holy love and marriage is not based money,butthe godly spirit that dwells inside us.but only true christains believe and live by gods word.so advise these young people in the right direction and they will have a long life together as a family just as i have for 75 years to one man.it was not easy but,when you dont know how you should know who.and they call him (JESUE}.I love both you.PRAYERS FOREVER.

Why is everybody so worried about her age. As long as Usher didn't mind why should everybody else. Maybe he likes older women

All you peole on here is too crazy. I know the lady is ugly but its something Usher liked about her. So what it didnt work out between them. She can do better, and he also could do better. But on the other hand he gone do alot worse, just wait and see.

I have been reading all the comments and some or really sad. What difference does it make it she is pretty or not (lets first define pretty). That isnt the issue. Taking a step back and looking at the big picture. 1.Tameka made herself a baby making machine, switch she will get paid big for. 2. Usher may take a big hit in the pocket, but he has to wonderful little boys. They both gained from this, she just looks like the bigger fool. Usher isn't going to miss that money, he wakes up every morning making money. She went in with her eyes open, nobody made here pop out them babies, thats her body. She may have got a little greedy, and got bit. Ladies we better start thinking, because when the party is over we holding that baby.

Usher should of listen to his mother who did not want him to marry this young lady. All the people out there who are reading this. Listen to your parents advice. They have developed instinct that we have not yet develop. Your parent is the 2 people who raised you and only want the best for you. So listen to them and you'll have it a lot easier.

UR I am a bit disappointed in you after you declared on national tv hat you love your wife to death, now u r getting divorced.It seems she was only meant to bare your kids. U r just a player who got caught up and tried to do the right thing since she got pregnant. I still luv u, but please don't let this divorce get ugly. for the record i think Tameka is the average black woman. Usher since you are a big super star, u need a big superstar wife that has no kids.Keep ur head up, your number 1. Kiss

She is only a couple years older than him what less than 10 and if this was a man noone would be saying anything. Did anyone say anything when beyonce got with jayz who is alot older or nelly and ashanti? THe woman is pretty else Usher would not of gotten with her. Does ugly mean someone who is not light skinned? Cause if she was high yellow you all be saying how fine she is We in our community hate on each other so much we dont have to worry about white people

Wow, well all I can say is that I am not surprised. I really do not like the fact that children are now involved and this situation is going to change the lives of everyone involved. My prayer is that they work this out with the children's best interest at heart. Marriage is not something to be entered into lightly. I just wish that they could have worked things out, but when you are a celebrity it seems to be a different playing feild. All I can say is seek advice from those that have made it work and are in it for the long haul and always,always keep God first in everything that you say and do. God Bless

What really kills me, are the people who are writing in this blog about all of the negative things that other people are writing. Please, you guys ain't no better for reading and responding in the first place. Those who are writing about God in this blog need to understand that this union was not pure to begin with. After reading many articles about Usher and Tameka, both started seeing each other while she was still married to her first 3 children's daddy. I believe the Bible calls that ADULTARY!!! even if you are seperated (there are no shaded areas when it comes to GOD, either you are married or your not). Well no wonder there is a divorce. It says alot when many people are against this marriage instead of blessing it (putting her not so attractive issue aside). I agree that beauty does come within but unfortunately for Tameka her ugliness from within has really enhanced the fact that she is not a physically beautiful woman. People see right through this. For those people out there feeling sorry for Tameka,let it be your drop dead gorgeous son that you busted your ass to raise to be a good Christian and a succesful man and then a Tameka comes along with her issues and baggage to trade them in for Louis Vouiton's. You'll be singing a different toon then.

Well Usher, you made Tameka a rich woman, so now you can sit back and watch another man or men enjoy the fruits of your labor. Rather Tameka is ugly or not, with the money that she will be getting from you any man in the world would give her attention, just to help spend YOUR money. You fuck-up Usher, you should have listened to your mother.

I can't believe half of the comments people have made. They are all so negative. Firstly Tameka is a very attractive black woman. Usher could have had many, but he made the choice remember and something about her made him take that step of commitment. I agree that it was probably on the cards as the rumours pre-marital gitters were rift. Unfortunately, children are involved and I wish them all well. I don't believe divorce is something anyone enters into lightly but I agree with the comments from Rev/ and would hope that they put GOD in the centre of this situation. However, it appears to be to late. I pray they do not allow bitterness to affect the future they will always have together because of the blessed children they have been given. Tameka & Usher I am sorry to hear your news.

Mother knows best, I don't care what you say. Every real mother wants the best for her child and this was not the best regardless of the age difference. She had an agenda from the beginning and it has caught up with her or will catch up

It is such a crying shame to read some of the comments by our writers. Who cares if she is older, ugly or a money grabbing sister. If you are in love with someone none of these things matters. People wake up and read God's holy word. We are in the last days.

Tameka never had a chance from the start because Usher mother was already in their business. Tameka is definitely not to old and she very pretty. And as far as Chilli, it sounded like he was cheating on her anyway so way would she put up with that mess.
posted by Booroe on Jun 16, 2009
I just can't figure out what he seen in her. She couldn't have had a good personality because she was all game. My God, she looks like a man. If she looks like this with makeup and the wig, she definitely is "horrifying" without the wig and makeup. Usher must have been drunk each time he laid down with her.
posted by booroe on Jun 16, 2009
Well, a hard head make a soft ass. Usher will pay the price. Tameka need to be ashamed of herself for manipulating the young man.
posted by kb on Jun 16, 2009
People, Chili is not a spring chicken either. BUT She is alot prettier and is a woman that is within his caliber. Poor Tameka never really had a chance at a successful marriage with Usher. There is just way too much for her to compete with when it comes to Usher. Unfortunately, a celebrity of status like Usher is not easily obtainable because it will always be about him. Beautiful women will always throw themselves at him and Tameka is so way out of his league in more ways than one. VDOG said it best "JAY-Z SHOWED YOU HOW IT'S DONE WITH BEYONCE!!" Usher probably realized that he really was not in love with Tameka and I believe deep down that Tameka knew all along. Why else would she immediately get pregnant? I mean the woman got pregnant literally back to back and then runs off to Brazil to risk her life to get liposuction when she should have been home nursing a 2 month old infant. That just goes to show you what was really on her mind which was trying to keep an unobtainable man at whatever cost, whether it was her life or her new born baby needing her. I don't think Usher is ready to settle down with anyone at the moment. His life style and career won't let him. But if it's one thing I cannot stand, is an old woman with big kids trying to get with a man 25 and younger and then don't understand why they are getting divorce. Hello, you are too OLD for him!!!

i dont think that his wife is ugly. usher and tameka makes a good couple. i'm sad to hear that they are splitting up.i think we needs more african american couples in the spot light. its a shame, in oder to be seen as a beautiful african american you have to be light, skinny, and long weaver. people wake up! and stop looking at tv and comparing us with these mixed races, bleach skin, sprayed on bodies, fake women. and be true to yourself and your color. in addition, have anyone thought about maybe when he married her he was thinking about inner beauty. a man as usher status probably have dated many of different types of women. now you need to ask yourself why did he chose her.

why is everyone soo worried about what she looks like, that has nothing to do what this situation. She is too old for him, but if that is what he liked at the time thats what he liked.It is sad that they are getting a divorce, but its even more sad that this kid may not grow up in the household of his father.

Mr. Usher,the best advice any person can give you if they trully respect you is this..Look to the hill from which cometh your help. You help is the Lord thy God. Seek advice from him. This is a time to just pour out to him (the Lord). For not just yourself but the children and your wife. That there be peace no matter what. No on knows what goes on in a person's life, but will jump at a chance to speak negative. Marriage is a commitment and vows were taken. But God said whom he have put together..Did you ask him if this was your wife. Yes you have fans who care about you aswell as haters. This is all good. You both are role models and have a responsibility to act accordingly. Stay strong, positive and loving. Love covers so much. I realize this might not be what the readers wanta hear,however it's not for them but for you. For the readers, be!care!ful! how you judge a situation concerning another, you might find yourself going thru that and more. Pray for him, his family and yourself to. He that is with out sin (faults) go head and throw that stone. But when you throw it look for it to come back and knock you up side the head. Love ain't all the time easy it take work..Even the best fall, but the strong get up and if they are weak it's our frienship or love for them that help's them up. I'm not peaching I'm sharing..But if it touches your heart, it's severd it's purpose. Nothing wrong with building a person up, check ya self if your caught knocking them down. Re"

Were they married for love or was Usher doing this because of the gay rumors? I think he pays her for all of the pretending to be together and he wanted kids anyway.Remember M.Jackson pulled the same fake crap with Lisa Presley as soon as the molestation thing came out.Don't let this fool you it was never a union between thse two it was only for show to save his reputation!

No one had anything positive to say. Bless both families who are hurt by this matter, if it's true. And if there is something wrong with the black family structure, reach out and be a leader...help (If your intelligent and personable enough!). There are a lot of unfortunate situations in all families black or white. However when we dwell on one certain color, then that becomes the stereotype that comes to mind when situations arise such as this. It is a truly ignorant and ugly point of view. For those educated black families out there keep striving to be better, faster, and wiser. This hateful mentality will only help us rise.

I have been married for 35years. I just celebrated on June 1st 35years with my beloved husband, we have 2 boys and one girl.My husband is 6 mos older than I am, and we are aging fantastic together, we in our fifties, the kids are fantastic, and we have a wonder life together, we have the money like these entertainers and movie stars, just enough to pay our bills, we paid for the kids university and college, so they would not have student loan for the rest of their lives, and now we just having a wonderful life with the pennies we can barely find each day, and with all the money these stars have, they are so unhappy, that tells you that money is not everything.We know we will be together for another 30 years if the good Lord let us, and it is pure love, and respect, money we do not have, and the phrase says live, love laugh, and the other phrase. Health, Happiness and Money.

When Usher did "Chili" from TLC group dirty as he did..then made a record(Confessions) about all his dirty little deeds I was completely turned off as a fan and have been every since, though some of his recent songs, I like. If he is really divorcing his wife, not only is he still immature but now he will be another statistic in 2 ways...#1-Failed marriage before 5 years. #2-Having kids in a single parent home! Another plague of the "black family"

First of all any woman that divorces her husband and remarries another man is insane. Doesn't she know that she is hurting her 3 boys as well. She has destroyed her own family!!! She married usher for fame and fortune It was just the sex that had Usher goung Rememebre she is older and way!!!experienced than Usher especially sex. She whipped it on him his nose was wide open he did not know any better. Lust is blind yalll...He never had it like that she knew just what to do...She had kids by him,mother did not come to civil marriage...Tameka dear you are old enough to know this by having a man's baby will not keep him...You just got caught up n the lime light Now be a good Mom and repent and tell your sons' you made a mistake and be a better role mom image to them while there is still time..You need to put your first family back together if it's not too late....stupid
