Usher Has Filed for Divorce

June 15, 2009

Usher filed for divorce Friday from his wife of nearly two years, Tameka Foster-Raymond.

According to The Associated Press, Usher filed the petition Friday in Superior Court in Atlanta. The court record did not give any details about the split between the pop star and his wife, who were married in August 2007.

The marriage between Usher and Tameka Foster reportedly has been strained for months now. Sources have said the pair haven't lived under the same roof for quite some time, as Usher has relocated to Nevada to work on his next solo album.

The couple has two young sons, 1 1/2-year-old Usher Raymond V and 6-month-old Naviyd Ely Raymond. His wife has three children from a previous marriage.
