Usher: I didn’t fire my mum, I let her retire
Usher is said to have fired his mum on the run up to his nuptials because Jonetta and Tameka didn’t get along - but now he’s told Vibe magazine that he didn’t fire her, he just let her retire.
He explained: “I decided to not fire, not get rid of, but to give [my mother] the ultimate compliment - to retire her to be a full-time grandmother.
“My mother and I decided to change her situation, together. There was a conversation. I didn’t write her a letter or pink slip her.”
