The drama continues. Bossip spoke with an industry insider who shed yet another side of this Usher/Tameka divorce melee:
Usher is currenty living in LA working on his album, which comes out in October. He's normally not one to take many photos, however recently he’s been photographed quite often. He’s doing the same thing that Jay Z and Beyonce are doing, which is hiring photographers to take pictures, that they have pre-approved. He’s trying to build positive press in his favor at the expense of his wife’s image. From the advice given by his mother (who’s hired a completly new publicity team), he’s trying to get the public to Tameka her under the bus. At this point Tameka doesn’t want to get divorced and everyone in her camp is thinking that he’s just doing this as a publicity stunt to sell more records. – like another Confession’s record. Some wonder if this marriage was really a cover-up for an alternative lifestyle. Once the divorce papers are signed, the floodgates will open.
Usher has filed for divorce from wife Tameka Foster Raymond.
The R & B star filed the petition Friday in Superior Court in Atlanta, court records show. The couple, who got married in August 2007, have two sons together, Usher Raymond V, 18 months, and Naviyd, 6 months.
Usher, 30, and his wife of nearly two years, 38, have been leading separate lives for months, sources tell PEOPLE. The singer has been away from home often recording his next record in Las Vegas, one source says. "He's done his best to keep Tameka away," says the source.
