Usher is reportedly considering divorcing wife of nearly two years Tameka Foster.

The couple are rumoured to have been living mostly separate lives for the last year, although Usher did rush to Tameka’s bedside when she nearly died during cosmetic surgery in February.

A source told the New York Post that Usher complained to friends about Tameka in March: “He was tired of how demanding she is. He always had to cater to her constant insecurities.

“But now he’s ready to move on and take care of his kids.”

A second source added: “Everyone close to Usher knew how unhappy he was. [Tameka] is crazy. His mother [Jonetta Patton] didn’t even go to their wedding because she didn’t approve!”

The couple had planned to marry in a lavish ceremony in July 2007 but the event was called off at the last minute. They eventually married in a private ceremony a few days later. They have two sons together, 18 month old Usher Raymond V and six month old Naviyd.

Sources close to Tameka have said that the pending divorce is news to her but admits that she hasn’t spoken to Usher “in a few days” and is struggling to get hold of him at the moment.
