* USHER WEDS FOSTER IN ATLANTA
R&B heart-throb USHER wed his pregnant fiancee TAMEKA FOSTER in his native Atlanta, Georgia, on Friday (03Aug07), according to U.S. reports.
American magazine People reports 28-year-old Usher, real name Usher Raymond, married stylist, 37, at the office of the singer’s lawyer in Atlanta.
The Chicago Sun-Times claims Usher’s mother Jonetta Patton was among the guests. Recent reports have suggested Patton was fired as Usher’s manager earlier this year (07) when she disagreed with his engagement to Foster.
The Friday nuptials follows last weekend’s (28Jul07) last-minute cancellation of a star-studded wedding at music mogul Antonio ‘L.A.’ Reid’s Sagaponack, New York home.
Sources claimed the couple cancelled their New York wedding last month after an argument over the meal at the reception, but Foster said a brief hospitalisation caused the postponement.
The couple started dating in November 2005, the same year Foster split from her ex-husband Ryan Glover – father of her three children.
Usher and Foster’s baby is due this winter (07). (ES/WNWCPL)
