Usher Called The Cops On Tameka!

W-T-F is going on with Ursher and his soon to be ex wife Tameka??  Usher has reportedly called the cops on Tameka twice in the last few days for coming on to his property and f'in up his car.  *cue Jazmin Sullivan* But apparently there's no evidence to back up his claims: TMZ has learned Usher Raymond recently called the cops on his soon-to-be ex-wife -- accusing her of sneaking onto his property and scratching up one of his cars. Law enforcement sources tell us when officers arrived at the scene, Tameka was nowhere to be found. Police later interviewed both Tameka and Usher -- but determined there was no evidence or witnesses to substantiate Usher's claim. But the drama didn't end there -- law enforcement sources tell us Usher called the cops on Tameka a second time several days later, complaining that Tameka again got onto his property and wouldn't leave. By the time cops arrived, Tameka had already split.

This divorce just turned extra ugly.  Her publicist says this is all B.S. and Ursh is just trying to destroy her.... How convenient that 'Meka posted a lengthy essay the other day about certain people in the industry lying and using  publicity stunts to further their celebrity.  That soapbox letter when you read the rest... Here's Tameka's letter she posted on Global Grind this week in case you missed it:
To be or not to be…but at what cost? It’s almost inconceivable the lengths that some artists & entertainers feel obligated to go to keep themselves in the headlines. The prioritization of fan base over God, family, morals, and over just plain ol’ fashioned common sense is an example of that remarkable distance. I think it’s important to understand the premise of letting a character that’s been created for fans drown out who you really are. One easily can become a zombie, while the people who love them waste away looking for the sea salt. It becomes so easy to sell your soul to the entertainment business while creating an illusion of grandeur. Hence, this painfully obvious thirst for relevance that completely overshadows sensibility. Thirsty much? When I started in this business over 14 years ago, I was a stylist (fashion) for many well-known artists both upcoming and platinum selling, I never imagined the atmosphere would become this cloudy or eerie. I was trying to define the images of young hopefuls who thought “my way” would set them apart from the masses. Often dorky and clunky, trying to find themselves in defiant color schemes, wrongly combined textures and overworked fashion techniques. Although, consumers see the finished product but are remiss as to what goes into the development. It isn’t always a graceful process. Silly belts, headgear and nervously popped collars often highlighted a level of awkwardness in identity. I’ve watched boys become men and helped boys become men. Yet this identity crisis that hovers over much of the entertainment world is like a crimson cape of insecurity as does this obsession with being “hot” and having “followers.” While fans fixate over the lives of their idols, some celebrities have become slaves to the persona that has been created for them but rarely has anything to do with who they are. Shock value. Publicity stunts. Peddling relationships like a vagabond for a few hundred double clicks on their fans favorite blog sites. Who are they really? Some of your favorite artists were born into the industry or should I say “grandfathered” into it and never got the chance to figure it out. Driven by vicarious dreams of demanding managers/labels, artists are a “what” not a “who.” Their “what” is the gross, their “who” is the net. Artists get whatever is left of themselves after the world takes its share. It all reminds me of a scene from the film “The Devils Advocate” where souls were sold for money, class, and status. The mirrors have definitely become smoky. So much in fact that it makes it hard for one to decipher reality from the facade. Is it Live or Memorex? Even the public should recognize the #FF (fame fanatics) who go to such great lengths to garner attention ranging from publicity ploys, outlandish stage outfits, sex tapes, head shaving, public grand standing, picture leaks and throwing tantrums. From vintage concepts of dating shows in hopes of finding a soul mate (huh? #wheredotheydothatat) to trying to hit Billboard Charts by any means necessary. Surely, the fans know better than to think what flows from “the pen” of any writer embodies the details of another human’s deepest and true desires. Sadly, men singing about love, politics, marriage, children or anything genuine and benevolent equates to album sales flop, mundane chatter and waning popularity. It takes a song about disparaging all the aforementioned just to get accolades and spins on the radio. Unlike a mathematical equation the negative induces the positive. The need to placate fans puts artists at their mercy, leading to maniacal decisions. But I guess desperate times call for desperate measures. I digress…. Nowadays some artists, entertainers, producers and even songwriters are going as far as buying magazine covers and paying photographers to follow them like paparazzi. It’s called #stayingrelevant. I say amass the fortune, help others and bump the fame, but that sentiment is not often shared. The fame, notoriety, popularity and prestige i.e. “the Light” for some is parallel to a drug. So much self-value is encompassed, without it life to them has little worth. Is it life imitating art or art imitating life? Before the tirades and “smoke and mirror-esque” themes, when music actually made sense, even a mere decade ago, it was something we created memories with, celebrated, made and raised our kids to. It embodied our diverse cultures, experiences, and gave others a peek into our soulful worlds. Yet there are many like Lauryn, Mary J, Common and others that are non-conformists. They have never compromised themselves, their sexuality nor their art, yet they remain timeless. Although standing in “the Light’ has had its costs for all, selling one’s soul for relevance is completely different. It makes one wonder the cost of buying it back. I believe that many of these artists today lack the confidence in self that proves to be true staying power. Where there is absolute talent, no drama, no controversy, no nonsensical angles are needed. Its called: Do what God gave you the talent to do and leave the shenanigans to vaudeville and the games to Milton Bradley. For those naysayers, I don’t feel the need to run down my list of qualifications or validate myself, or point out the careers I have funded, started, saved, and salvaged. Yet I will say to those that create diversions for relevancy...to stop, save face, don’t listen to those that benefit more from their advice to you, and ask God for suitable guidance. In the meantime don’t feel inclined to do anything that isn’t organic. At this point, I think I may start my own trending topic #betruetoyourself. Those that actually KNOW me, know how I love a quote that is apropos, so as Dr. Seuss wrote: "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

Sigh. This would be co-signable if it wasn't coming from someone who's done things for publicity herself.  Just sayin'...

I read this long rant and it

I read this long rant and it is SO hypocritical - staying relevant?????- says the woman with constant twitter updates, says the woman who constantly feels the need to release statements discussing why other people hate her and that it is because we hate ourselves, says the woman who went to Brazil months after having a baby to get "pretty again" but then condemn those that follow the "standard of beauty". Oh please Tameka, you are shouting from a sinking ship. No one cares about your qualifications, REALLY, we don't. There are too many black successful women per mile, no per block, for us to care about a "stylist" who married an R&B singer. I have never heard you be so vocal before your marriage - are you mad that the limelight will now change because Ursh is not in the picture anymore. For a woman who has so many issues, its quite classless to attack others in an industry that you try your hardest to stay a part of. Once again, you are shouting from a sinking ship. Stop embarrassing yourself.

Replying to "Joe"...you are so right about this: "It’s funny when a regular woman marries a famous man, she’s trash, but when they marry a celeb, we love it. I guess if you girls on here met your dream celeb and married them, the rest of these (hide behind the computer) bloggers would be talking about you girls to. Sad, black women we have to do better, why so bitter?" I'm experiencing technical difficulties w/ replying to blogs on here...bear w/ me.

One more thing, I am sadden by the fact that our new generation does not treat marriage and family more sacred. It is like you can get a marriage at the dollar store now. wow!

I believe that in the

I believe that in the interest of the children all of their bickering and fighting should be left behind close doors or just not done at all. I know it is hard to "let it go" but, when it gets to this point they need to take this matter to God and leave everyone else out of it. Did she go to his house, probably so, us woman are very creative when it comes to getting what we want without leaving a trace sad to say and men are just the same. I can see where this would be a perfect opportunity for usher to also try to create a case where it would be in the best interest for him to have sole custody of the kids. Making her out to be the bad person. She may be flipping right now , which if you are hurting is normal but, her kids she probably hurt somebody over them. One mother to another. I will say a prayer for them and ask God to put a hedge of protection around the kids and allow the couple to get past the differences for the kids sake.

She aint no DIVA?: Usher

She aint no DIVA?: Usher isn’t relevant. We all warned him to stay away from that Barbaric beast. These things happen when you don’t listen..OH WELL!He so wishes he had the spark he did years ago..NEXT! Barbaric is how you sound insulting a beautiful intelligent woman of the same race but clearly of higher class. You insult her you insult yourself.

Just so that everyone is

Just so that everyone is clear, Usher's last album didn't flop because he married Tameka. It flopped because it wasn't a good album........point blank. Try again Ursh.

HATERS!!! It was obvious that the very people (fans) that she was referring to in her piece are the one writing negative comments about her on this site. (umph). How can you dislike someone really whom you do not know. I think you guys proved her point. Just my opinion.

Man, this letter is truth.

Man, this letter is truth. Mrs. Raymond may have faults, but who doesn't? That doesn't change the face that she's RIGHT about so many things in that letter. Personally, I was NEVER a fan of Usher until his most recent album "Here I Stand". It was not a commercial success, but it was REAL MUSIC.For those of you who haven't listened to it in its entirety, please do so! As far as this new 'Papers' song...*smdh* C'mon homie, you can do better. Why'd you have to take it there?

Ya'll know that boy only

Ya'll know that boy only married her because he wanted kids. By her being his stylist, he saw how she took care of her kids and wanted some with her. Ya'll know that boy like POLE'S (Usher, in Wendy's voice, HOW YOU DOING!) It's funny when a regular woman marries a famous man, she's trash, but when they marry a celeb, we love it. I guess if you girls on here met your dream celeb and married them, the rest of these (hide behind the computer) bloggers would be talking about you girls to. Sad, black women we have to do better, why so bitter?

The talentless 1's or the

The talentless 1's or the ones who's careers are not what they used to be (usher) are the 1's playing dirty. Paying photogs to follow them, lying and leaking false info to the media so that the public will feel sorry for them. Every time Usher has a new album coming out, suddenly his life becomes an open book, he can't stop running his mouth, telling whatever stories he can to create "hype" before his album drops. All of a sudden Tameka out of nowhere decides to go on his property, but she didn't do this say 4-5mths ago. And didn't he marry Tameka to ward of the rumors about him being gay/DL?? Usher appears to use people for his own convenience and when he's through with them he slanders their name and makes them out to be the "bad guy" mean while he plays victim trying to get the sympathy vote.

Tameka says: Even the public

Tameka says: Even the public should recognize the #FF (fame fanatics) who go to such great lengths to garner attention ranging from publicity ploys, outlandish stage outfits, sex tapes, head shaving, public grand standing, picture leaks and throwing tantrums. Nowadays some artists, entertainers, producers and even songwriters are going as far as buying magazine covers and paying photographers to follow them like paparazzi..... She makes ALOT of valid points in her letter.... Why would the paps follow somebody 24/7 who ain't doin ish, (rihanna), Because there either being paid or there not paps there paid photographers. A person with no talent being followed by the paps/photogs like they Janet Jackson or somebody important lol. Some of these celebs are losing what little credibility they have!!!!!!! Cassie head shaving and nude pics leak, Kanye throwing tantrums when he doesn't win awards or when someone he feels should have won 1 didn't. The list goes on.

Well done, Tameka! Educate

Well done, Tameka! Educate these fools! I'm sorry peeps but I have to side w/ Tameka on this one. If you take a closer look at Usher's diminishing career, it will all become so much clearer to you. He needs someone to blame and Tameka seems like the obvious pick. Most people hate this woman for no real reason...she does more for the community than most big stars do. It's just so sad how she's been ridiculed from the time they married and even now...no one ever embraced this marriage b/c she was "average" and in our own hypocritical minds, she was never good enough for him. Had he married some skinny,light-skinned,bi-racial, hispanic (pick one) fake beauty w/ ill intentions, everyone would be saying what a great couple they make. Love comes in strange packages and sometimes that's what these big-headed stars need...someone to keep them grounded and keep it real! I'm out!

Ushers coming across very

Ushers coming across very sneaky and manipulative, i don't believe Tameka was on his property, I believe Ushers trying to create as much drama and controversy around his name as possible because he has a new album coming out, which i for 1 wont be buying. Usher should have never married Tameka, EVERYONE was against that marriage, but he didn't listen, and now he's trying to throw dirt on Tameka's name, trying to get people to feel sorry for his hard of hearing ass!!!!!

Interesting letter from

Interesting letter from Tameka, I am sure she can spill some beans. Someone get her a book deal pronto. When she said ppl compromise their sexuality my interest peeked. I wanna know who,what,when. Another thing, I wonder if she really wrote this letter. Usher should not discuss he family probs in a song. He has kids with the lady no matter how much she hurts you, she has your kids.Do not hurt your nose to spite your face

Did the officers expect to arrive at the property and see Tameka still damaging the car? What to they mean there is no evidence because she was not on the scene? Tameka needs to have some dignity and move on with her life. When did we start caring about Tameka anyway? Wasn't she a transvestite gold digger on many of these blogs for the longest?

Tameka made some very valid

Tameka made some very valid points and it wasn't just directed at Usher. Usher threw the first blow and I firmly believe that she has the right to defend herself. She certainly didn't do so in a trashy or distasteful way. I believe that Usher is fabricating the entire stories about Tameka messing with his car. I think at this point she has the power to do him real damage if she wanted to and doesn't have to resort to keying a car or whatever it is he accused her of doing. Anything to make the pages of TMZ...damn shame!

sorry.. the fact that Usher

sorry.. the fact that Usher released that tacky asz song "Papers" leads me to believe he is truly immature enough to start some shit like this for publicity. i truly don't understand why Tameka is hated on SO much. i don't think she would do something like this. she is a very intelligent woman based on the two pieces she has written. sorry, Usher has lost all credibility based on his affair w/ Grace and that horrendous song he leaked. ugh! the double standards are ridiculous! he cheats, releases a incredibly disrespectful song.. yet people are so quick to believe his ass when "he" says she came on property and caused a ruckus EVEN when the police confirmed that there is zero evidence to prove she was even there! sorry, Usher is lame as hell for this.. i'm just wondering why people are so quick to back his ass when he SO in the wrong!

However, a blog is not the place to do it. I dont agree with ANYONE getting their "issues" off their chest by putting it on the internet! There is a time and place for everything!! Go to counceling, talk to a therapist, put it in a personal journal, talk to your friends or family.... putting this out in the world wide web is tacky to do for anyone who is going through a divorce......

I want to first say that as a married woman, I am digusted and disappointed with Usher and this new album "Monster" he's about to release about his wife. How can you degrade a woman you claim to forever love and cherish, the mother of your children??? He's a child who needs to grow up. Second, Tameka I truly believe you knew what you were getting into when you persued Ursher, and because of that you get what you ask for. You knew before you married him his soul was already sold, so I guess it was just bad judgement on your part to think that marriage would change him. God bless the kids. :(
