Usher and Tameka Raymond's Divorce Finalized
Usher's marriage to Tameka Foster Raymond is now officially a thing of the past.
Court documents confirm that a Fulton County, Georgia judge issued a final decree Wednesday, severing ties between Usher Raymond IV and Tameka Foster Raymond, the singer's former stylist.
The beginning of the end of their marriage was marked by two different sides of the story. In June of this year, Usher filed for divorce, citing "no reasonable hope of reconciliation," adding that they had been separated since July 2008.
His then-wife disagreed in subsequent court documents, claiming that she "had every reason to believe her marriage was intact," noting that they had been "intimate" earlier that month.
Married lavishly in August 2007 at a 16th-century-style chateau near Atlanta, the couple have two sons: Usher Raymond V, who turns two this month, and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 11 months.
