Usher’s No Pimp

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Unlike other Hollyweird inhabitants, Usher refused to sell pics of his son to the media:

“In no way would I ever pimp out my child for money,” Usher [said]. “I am livid that people talk about my child.” In fact, he has posed – for free – with his son for an “incredible” Father’s Day cover for Essence magazine.

Then he goes on to profess his love for Tameka:

“I stand by her as a man loving my wife and being there for my child . . . Opinions are like [bleep]holes. Everybody’s got one. What I will say is, this is my wife and I would hope that [people] would respect my wife and my marriage and who I have chosen to spend my life with.”

Check out Usher playing the knight in shining armor routine. It seems they’re going to tough it out until the very end. It’s like watching a train wreck move in slow motion.

    He said it, I just hope he can do it. He may be the only black man left that still respects black women. I tip my hat off to his Mom. And he for listening.

    i wish Usher and his wife and family well.

    ushers real thoughts “my wife wont let me sell pictures of the kid. I hate that i got her pregnant and have been guilted into marriage. I hate my life with this average broad but feel trapped by my own guilt to be there for my child. I miss my life before this skank.”

  • Necy

  • fergulicious

    I respect Usher for defending his wife and his child. I think the public statements about his wife being ugly are so disrespectful. I feel the same way about the public comments about JayZ looking like a camel and predicting that any children will be ugly.

  • Doagae

    There are pics out there of their baby..he is a cutie…I am so proud of this young man on so many levels….I think I just might buy his album now!

  • ATLBlogger

    LOL @ og bobby j…I was thinking that samething while reading that passage.

    And I can’t wait to see this cover for ESSENCE MAG!

  • elle1

    I hear that…

  • Lady elle

    I hear that…Good for him

  • Kay

    I just hope the old hood myth is true….Two ugly people can make a pretty baby! But seriously, I do respect that he isn’t pimping the photos out…I think there is something real twisted about that!

  • waaat

    seriously…wat is up with u african american women…screaming left and right about lack of black women with black men, love for black women e.t.c. and everychance u get manage to put in at least 1 derog comment bout tameka!!! wat is mentally wrong??? this man is doing what all of you claim u want…marring the black woman he loves and respects, having a baby within marriage, not ashamed to be seen in public and publicly claim and declare love!!!!! maybe she isn’t typical video model type ( isn’t this a good thing, he has not conformed to shallow sterotypes) but the man is in love..she is black, he has married her….WHAT MORE DO U WANT. u continue to put her down…cus she is pushy…? most of us women can be at times, demanding…yea at times, u too dnt deny it. the man is still coming out, making music which will go back to his black family (black love is what is always preached about rite?) and they seem to both be sane, so will hopefully raise a well adjusted fam! damn, u people irk me….all tameka posts r usualy contaminated by negativity…so i wnt to put in my 2 cent before and if it begins…

    thank goodness there r some positive comments in here..i was worried all sense had been lost

  • waaat

    before anyone comes with corrections…let me say SOME women. same goes for some men

  • think I don't know

    notice how all these black male celebs are getting married and/or have kids ALL OF A SUDDEN?!! Just when talk about pedophilia and the down-low culture begins to hit a high point, and people’s names are getting ready to be called out. I see Sean Combs ran back to Kim after leaving her talking about “he ain’t meant for marriage”. And some of these women they’re with are hiding their DL status too: Mariah, Tameka, Beyonce…rumor has it they all go both ways.

  • Baby Hur

    Waat…… I totally argee….Black women need a reality check and we need it FAST!!!

  • Mmmm

    Good for Usher!
