Welp. Looks like it might not be over just yet. Reportedly, the filing was not found at the courthouse:
And while InTouch claims that divorce papers were filed in Atlanta this morning, AJC reporter Rhonda Cook tells us, despite a flurry of media calls to the courthouse, no such filing was found after a courthouse records search Thursday afternoon. The magazine distributed a news release Thursday promoting an article in its next issue due out Friday. The release said the couple has had marital problems for almost a year and “the divorce papers were filed in Atlanta this morning.”
Usher’s camp has remained silent today which is unusual. You would think that a couple that’s happily married would be quick to shut down rumors of divorce. We shall see folks…we shall see.
Usher and stylist Tameka Foster have been living apart for the past year, according to U.S. publication In Touch.
Divorce papers were filed in Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday morning (11Jun09). The shocking news comes just four months after Foster suffered cardiac arrest during cosmetic surgery in Brazil. At the time, Usher, who flew to be by her side, insisted he had no idea his wife was there for the procedure. A source close to the couple says, “Usher’s primary concern is for his children. He is a great father and just wants to do what is right for them.” The couple has two kids together, Usher Raymond V, 18 months, and Naviyd, six months.
Damn. But, who didn’t think this union was semi-doomed from the beginning? Discuss, folks.
