Ruben Studdard Files for Divorce From Wife of Three Years


In the documents filed in Alabama, the season two winner of 'American Idol' blames his break-up from Surata Zuri McCants on 'irreconcilable differences'.

A marriage of one former "American Idol" champion is crumbling down. Season two winner Ruben Studdard, who edged out runner-up Clay Aiken to claim the title in 2003, has filed for divorce from wife of three years, Surata Zuri McCants.

The "I Need an Angel" singer, who gained the nickname "Velvet Teddy Bear" on the singing competition, filed the papers in Alabama, and cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the couple's separation. A representative for the 33-year-old has released a brief statement of the split, simply telling TMZ, "Ruben and Zuri have gone their separate ways."

Ruben first met Surata in 2006 while signing copies of his third album, "The Return", at a Wal-Mart in Atlanta. He dated her for two years before marrying her at the Canterbury United Methodist Church in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama in June 2008. At the time, he reportedly had 20 groomsmen by his side. The couple didn't have children together.
