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...

Soul Touch: Not always.Some

Soul Touch: Not always.Some times parents just don’t want to let go. I’m close to my mother, and I listen to her advice…but I have known a few mothers that treat their son likes it’s their man. My man is a perfect example of that.thanks God,he got his own home

Anon: There is no absolutes

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. Why r we assuming he is the one opting out? What is his wife is the one who hs decided its not working out? Again this is assuming they r actually getting a divorce?!

Agreed concerning the filing

Agreed concerning the filing procedures, but still not plausible IMO because you would have no reason to use the name to check the procedures. Also in re-reading, 1st it says someone from the Raymond household called, then it says an attorney called. Still sounds fishy to me. Anon: There are different rules when it comes to filing for divorce in different counties. The procedure is slightly different from Dekalb and Fulton for instance. The lawyer probably wanted clarification. And it is not against the law for a clerk to speak to the media about a public document. Yes, it is in bad taste, but not against the law. Also, Usher has multiple homes in multiple states. It is plausible that he is looking for the easiest and most favorable state to file his claim in. I can’t say I buy this divorce just yet but the lawyer and clerk are plausible.

Quote (Ain't this a bytch -

Quote (Ain't this a bytch - we gotta be quoting ourselves tsk, tsk - the recession) Marriage seems like it means nothing to most people now-a-days………….:( Quote You’re so right Les!! Marriage isn’t easy, I’ve been married for 15 years and believe me it was almost over before the honeymoon. You have to put Christ in your relationship. My marriage is great now, but it took work, prayer,liquor and one joint….Just Kidding! Plus, Marriage is even rougher when you have kids, because they take up a lot of time. So much time, you and your spouse become distant. LOL, Tonya you a trip - and just to clarify - cuz i'm not married yet - is that 1 joint a day? lol

Here's a different side to

Here's a different side to the parent hating the new spouse. I got married to my highschool sweetheart after dating for several years. Never liked the mother. She didn't like me but it was kept on the down low. We ended up divorcing after 6 years married. I had my doubts before the marriage. Even though people say you're not marrying the family. YOU ARE. I should have listened to my gut feeling the first time and NOT get married. I didn't look at he whole picture. Maybe she knew something I didn't. What I should have done was take that as a sign. Hopefully some will consider that before they take that final step.

I totally agree with you. I

I totally agree with you. I am an attorney and assuming you had to file something in a jurisidiction in which you don't normally practice and you had to call the clerk's office, there is absolutely no reason why you would use the client's name to get general filing information. In the end, who knows if they are getting divorced or not, but relying on that little tidbit regarding the clerk is just silly! Hope the kiddies will come out of this ok! CONTAGIOUS: That makes absolutely ZERO sense. I work in a high profile family law firm in LA and i can GUARANTEE you that USHER is being represented by a quality firm who knows what they are doing. Odds are the papers havent been filed yet its rare that the file is sealed. That said, there is no way that an assistant would call a clerk asking how to file papers and they definitely wouldnt say the client’s name. Not to mention that an ATTORNEY would NEVER call!!! I dont know how they do it down in the A but someone is tellin lies in the courthouse.

Hmmm, in regards the mother I

Hmmm, in regards the mother I have a similar story to t.dubz. My good friends brother was married to a woman her family HATED. I mean hated with a passion, primarly because they didn't think she was good enough. Long story short, he ran out...left the country, got caught up in illegal business and never came back to see his children. She stayed, supported her kids, gave them a good home and kept them connected with the family that, at first, hated her. Now they love her like she was blood. Yes, mothers know best...but they are human, as a result not perfect. My mother would never make any of choose between a relationship with her and our love.

@Gail I have to agree. I doubt she flipped the script over night. And really, it was fine enough for you to marry her...but not fine enough for you to stay and raise a family. My bet, it's all based on his career. And hey, the man is a manwhore....did he forget that?

I had a feeling her

I had a feeling her insecurities had a bit to do with it... mind you, the juvenile insults from the public probably wrecked havoc on what little confidence she had. But damn...after all, they should have tried...counceling, something. What is marriage anymore? Good luck to her. I want to say good luck to him, but part of me feels like he wasn't exactly at home catering to her as much as he was out and about catering to his sexual needs. But that's speculation.

I hate it when a guys friends

I hate it when a guys friends or even him, calls his ex-girl "crazy". 9 times out of ten, that woman's behavior has always been consistent with her actions(which every one else can see is clearly crazy from day one)however, the problem is, when the guy meets the girl, he's the only one who thinks her behavior is cute so he puts up with it and even indulges her, but after he's tired of her and dismissed her, now her behavior is labeled as "crazy"...No! her behavior has been consistent from day one, you young man were foolish enough to put up with it.

This whole situation is stupid he is stupid for marrying someone that he didn't really want to be with and stupid for having not one but 2 babies with the woman. and she stupid for allowing that dumb sh*t she already had 3 kids so it not like she just wanted to be a mom Do these people think about what type of example they are set for there kids now these kid are not going to know what a stable happy relationship is supposed to be like or look like when they grow up because they have stupid ass parents I need for yall to do better. And you’re right if momma doesn’t like the person they probably ain't for you.
