After days of talk and speculation, it is finally confirmed that Usher has filed for divorce from his wife Tameka Foster, with whom he's been married for nearly two years. The Grammy-winning artist filed the petition in Superior Court in Fulton County, Ga. on Friday, June 12.

According to the divorce document obtained by E! News, the first hearing of the case is scheduled to be held on July 15. The document, nevertheless, doesn't specify on the reason that prompts the pair's separation.

Usher and Tameka Foster, who used to be his assistant, tied the knot on August 3, 2007. They are parents to two sons; Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely Raymond.

Prior to Usher's official divorce petition, the pair was reported breaking up last year. However, both of them denied their marriage was on the rock, insisting everything was okay between them. Rumors of them divorcing resurfaced in February this year, but the twosome called reports of a split "100 percent not true."

Usher himself added fuel to the long persistent rumors after he was photographed recently hanging out with a woman while Tameka was nowhere to be seen. It's not clear though if the woman is his new girlfriend.

This doesn't surprise me. I said from jump, they'd divorce within a few yrs. She's conniving and deceitful. She saw a young, nice looking, successful man with no kids..and turned his ass into "GAME" Is she a gold digger? Damn 100 she is. How about those expedient family plans (2 babies back to back). I've been tryna get rich all my life. It took an ugly ass, talented hairstylist 2 yrs & 2 kids 2 accomplish what most have been at for years. Kudos to dat bytch!

Hahaha~ Well if she was a gold digger or not. Usher should have been alot smarter than he was. Also, it takes two to make a baby. So I don't think she trapped him there. If he didn't want kids he definitely could have protected himself. They BOTH knew what they were doing.

I agree she already has kids by "former famous" men but they werent making the dough so she hooked someone who was on top, got two babies and BAM it's over. She does thinks to make them divorce her she truly knows how to work it!!! Don't hate the player hate the game and what it does to the children cause no matter how much child support it is the children will still be without a in home father

She did exactly what she wanted to do....trap Usher with some babies so she can get paid. I guess you could say.."Mission Accomplished".

Leave that poor woman alone, she made the mistake of falling in love with a hoe. Did you not listen to his album? Usher has already been seen with another woman, that trifling bastard.
