UPDATE: Urshmeka Still On Splitsville Lane

Even though people (including us) cannot track down the actual Usher and Tameka Raymond divorce papers yet, that's really neither here nor there. For one, celebs always get legal matters hidden in secrecy if they pay enough for that to happen. Also, several sources are now reporting that Cobb County Courthouse has confirmed someone from the Raymond household indeed called to inquire about how to file divorce papers: The papers haven’t been filed yet, but we had a telephone conversation last week with an attorney asking how to file for them,” a clerk with Cobb County Superior Court in Georgia told The News’ Nancy Dillon. The employee added that she wasn’t sure which party the lawyer represented, or who had instigated the proceedings. And Usher and Tameka are both remaining uncharacteristically mum about this whole situation. but their friends aren't. Here's what folks have told the Daily News: Usher hasn’t been happy for some time. In March, he told pals he was dissatisfied with his marriage. “He was tired of how demanding she is. He always had to cater to her constant insecurities,” says one friend. “But now he’s ready to move on and take care of his kids [Usher Raymond V, 18 months, and Naviyd, 6 months].” Confirms a second insider, “Everyone close to Usher knew how unhappy he was. [Tameka] is crazy. His mother didn’t even go to their wedding because she didn’t approve!”

Papers officially filed or not, these two are indeed separated and have been for several weeks. And it doesn't look like they're making a detour back to marital bliss anytime soon either. Time will tell...

Joi: Usher is pathetic, if he was SO separated then why did he only file AFTER HE GOT CAUGHT in the photos?Usher is was faking love for the fans. I really dont like him. I will Neevvver buy another Usher thing. He is plastic just like all these stars. And by "you" not buying anything of his will affect him how? He could care less about you, he's rich and famous and doesn't need your pennies to get buy.

Libra men are SO not in it

Libra men are SO not in it for the LONG HAUL...they go with the popular opinion at the time and regret it later because they are FOLLOWERS and are too busy trying to be LIKED!....they tend to marry strong, bossy women who will take care of the responsibilities they hate. CApricorn Tameka is strong and since she was his stylist she probably was bossing him around. Not a Match made in heaven Chili is a Pisces girl,not sure what that's about but Usher will never be a strong man in a relationship

This marriage was doomed from

This marriage was doomed from the start. First off he dissed his mama. I mean how you fire your OWN mama, that was cold. Second Usher was talking too much about his marriage and addressing "fans" in the media. The moment he let his "fans" opinions get into his head was when he messed up. Peeps talk about Jay and Bey and how "private" they are but you know what they'll probably last because they're not letting folks up in their business which is why I root for them. Usher is a b!cth anyway and he ran his mouth too much and I can't stand a man that talks too much. Not attractive.

Usher files for divorce By

Usher files for divorce By MASHAUN D. SIMON The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Friday, June 12, 2009 After almost a week of speculation, the rumors about Atlanta resident and Grammy award winner, Usher Raymond IV and his wife Tameka Foster ring true. According to Fulton County court records the R&B star filed the petition Friday in Superior Court. A hearing has been set for July 15. Rumors had been circulating since May that the two were split, even reporting that they have been separated for almost a year. Raymond and Foster were married in a private ceremony in the summer of 2007, reportedly exchanging vows in the office of his lawyer, according to People.com . Major buzz was made about the marriage after it was reported that his mother, Jonetta Patton, didn’t approve of Foster. The couple has two sons together, 1 1/2-year-old Usher Raymond V and 6-month-old Naviyd Ely Raymond.

Anon: There is no absolutes in life except death and jackasses on the net. I don’t wish divorce on anyone. However, if Usher is truly unhappy, he should leave. Having a father who hates coming home is just as bad as a father that was never there to begin with. As long as he maintains a relationship with his children, Usher will be fine. agreee.

here's the one thing i know-

here's the one thing i know- i'm no where near paid like he is and the lawyer that i have is experienced enough that he wouldn't have to call into a court house to get guidance. furthermore, anyone can claim to be whoever they choose when placing a call. it doesn't necessarily mean they are in fact the person whom they identified themselves to be. the pieces just aren't adding up for me yet.

On a side note, I think

On a side note, I think people who get divorce not even 5 years after they say "I do" should return the gifts the guests gave them! That is to much money to be spending on people who don't even stay together. let start a new tradition of giving people gifts at the 5 year mark...*calming down* that is enough of my 2 minute rant

WHERE IS JUDGE MAYBELLNE and

WHERE IS JUDGE MAYBELLNE and LYNE TOLER? They need to break down the format of marriage down to all these people who say I do but then get divorce not even 5 years later. I'am not married (happily single and don't want to be a Mrs. anytime soon) but I do think people take marriage to lightly, it is not the fact that they don't respect it, it is just that they know they can get a piece of paper and end it. I' am sorry but I kind of believe that she let her insecurities of herself get in the way too. Girl, you was the one with the rock and got him to the alter, so if he married you then what did your appearance married now. And Usher, so was too demanding? You knew what she was like before you said I do so what changed? I just hope the kids are cool and they can be civil for them

this doesn't seem real, why

this doesn't seem real, why would a lawyer call to ask how to file divorce papers, and if this is real it must was Usher since Tameka has been divorced before she would know how to do it already

um, any licensed attorney

um, any licensed attorney would know how to file divorce papers. plus, if they didn't know which party they represented, then how did they know the attorney was calling about Usher. and "celebs always get legal matters hidden in secrecy if they pay enough for that to happen" - this isn't true for divorce. any licensed attorney has access to their bar's courthouse info with their bar id numbers. hint hint ... you should get attorneys as your sources

I can believe that she is to demanding. she came through atlanta and she was walking through the airport like she made the money in the house. he was walking in front of her like they were not together. he looked unhappy so I say its about damn time. he can do better. He only married her because of that baby. He should just take care of his kids and move on find someone better than her stuck up ass.

hlschick: It’s sad that

hlschick: It’s sad that they are getting a divorce when children are the picture. Divorce is very hard on children. But I think the friend’s comments are interesting - he was tired of her insecurities. This makes sense. Given how much flak he got for marrying her and how much ppl ragged on her looks, she probably was insecure. But she shouldn’t have been. After all, he married her!! She shoulda been happy to be Mrs. Raymond and not let the haters get under her skin. It is truly a tragedy if she let meddling people break up her marriage. That’s hard. I feel for her, I really do. My sentiment's exactly. So much so, she was willing to risk her health with surgeries. I agree, fully.

You must first marry the

You must first marry the right person. And even then it isn't a guarantee it would last. Sometimes, people rush the relationship. I don't know about others but I think we should at least wait until our mid to late 20s before marriage is even considered. In our 20s, we are still finding ourselves and growing. Hopefully by the late 20s, early 30s, we have found ourselves enough and sowed those wild oats to know that the true blessing in life is to share your world with someone else. But until you create that vision for yourself, how can you share it with someone else?

Now I am actually a Die hard YBF fan! I actually can't get this site at work but faithfully get on every day after work. However I'm on vacation now so I'm on all day and I must say I'm starting to get annoyed because this sounds like some foolishness, and I may be wrong but I thought there was a previous post that said Usher actually filed the papers yesterday, now all of a sudden there have only been inquiries being made????? It kinda sounds too fishy! Plus earlier the Post about Chris Chambers had a picture of someone else.......too much wrong info..sigh

You have to marry the right

You have to marry the right person. If at anytime you have doubts about the marriage, please don't do it. That is one time you truly need to go with your gut. When you marry someone you should know w/o a shadow of a doubt that you want to do it. That doesn't mean it will be easy b/c it won't but it will more than likely start out much better. And also people tend to prepare for the wedding and not for the marriage. The wedding ceremony lasts for 20-30 mins max but the marriage should last a lifetime which takes much more preparation. Like in the movie "not easily broken" only 3 people should be in a marriage; you, your spouse and God. If anyone else becomes involved it has the makings for disaster...sorry for the novel but I have lived and learned...

Soul Touch: Is it just me, but when I hear that a parent is a no-show for their child’s wedding, I’m disappointed. I just think it’s low. Regardless, that’s your child. No disrespect to his mom, cause I don’t know much about her…but I find that shit to be selfish and disrespectful. To add...if his mom found a man, does anyone think she would turn to her son and ask permission to live her life with him. I just found her character shady and disappointing. The nerve.

I said Usher as a generality. I never said or acted like I knew anything. This is a gossip blog not CNN. I don't know these people or the facts. And truthfully, I don't even care. I am here commenting in the dark just like you random. Knowing Usher's track record (that's been documented before you accuse me of assuming again), this could all be one big publicity stunt.
