Usher files for divorce from Tameka Foster
Papers were filed on behalf of the R&B star at the Superior Court in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday. The couple married in a private ceremony in the city in August 2007 after their planned lavish ceremony in New York was called off at the last minute.
The legal documents do not state a reason for the split but sources close to the couple claim they’ve been living apart for months and Usher thinks it’s time to move on.
After the papers were filed on Friday, Usher was spotted out at Los Angeles nightclub MyHouse that evening.
One onlooker reported: “He was just hanging out with friends at the back, very low-key.
“He looked relieved and happy.”
The couple are due in court on 15th July to discuss the split and they are expected to seek joint custody of the boys.
