Usher has filed for divorce from wife Tameka Foster in Superior Court in Fulton County, Ga. on Friday, June 12.
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.
