Usher and Tameka are Dunzo!

Usher and his wife Tameka sure aren’t having a good year. It started with Tameka running into plastic surgery problems in Brazil when she went into cardiac arrest after having a bad reaction with the medication. Now Usher has filed papers for divorce and apparently wants to leave his wife, for reasons unbeknownst to us. This is really sad because the two have only been married since 2007 and they have two kids together. I always hate to see families torn apart. From Star,

“Usher’s marriage is over.
The Grammy-winning singer has filed for divorce from his wife, Tameka Foster Raymond.

Court records indicate the petition was filed on Friday in Superior Court in Atlanta, where the couple — who married in August 2007 — lived with their two sons, Usher Raymond V, 18 months, and Naviyd Ely, 6 months. Tameka also have three children from a previous relationship.

The legal papers don’t cite an official reason for the split and the couple is due in court on July 15, court records show.

It’s been a difficult year for the duo. In February, Usher raced to Tameka’s side after she went into cardiac arrest prior to undergoing liposuction surgery in South America. She spent 11 days in a Brazilian hospital recovering.

Since then, Usher and Tameka have been spending a lot of time apart. While she has mostly remained in Atlanta — where she recently attended a screening of Eddie Murphy’s new movie Imagine That with the couple’s eldest son and two of her sons from her first husband — Usher has been in Las Vegas — working on his next album — and the Los Angeles area.

On the night the divorce petition was filed, he was seen partying at the L.A. club MyHouse.

Earlier this week one report linked Usher to an Island Def Jam staffer named Grace Miguel. Page Six reported that the singer, who wasn’t wearing his wedding ring, was photographed entering the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood with the woman last week.”

So what was the reason for the split, do we think? Is it because Usher wanted another woman so badly? Was Tameka really just blinded by the fame and glamour? Because that always seemed like a likely possibility. Or was all the drama just too much for both of them? I can’t help but wonder if Usher’s mom had something to do with it. It’s no secret that she hates Tameka and if it was, she made a point of letting everyone know by not even attending their wedding. You can bet if there was a whiff of trouble in paradise, Usher’s mom would be there telling him to leave her.

Whatever the case is, Usher’s obviously not too upset about it and that makes me lose respect for him just a little bit. If it were just him and Tameka that would be one thing but it’s not. There are those two kids to think about. And if nothing else, you should be a little sad that they won’t be growing up with both parents in the same house all the time. That’s nothing to be a boozehound over, I don’t care what’s going on with you and their mom.
