The Associated Press reports Usher filed for divorce Friday from his wife of nearly two years, Tameka Foster-Raymond. The petition was filed at Superior Court in Atlanta and did not give a reason for the split.
“They’ve been separated for some time and Usher just wants what’s best for his children,” a source told News of the World. Sources also told MTV News the pair haven’t lived together in some time, with Usher currently in Nevada working on a new album.
The couple have two sons together, Usher Raymond V, born in November of 2007, and Naviyd Ely Raymond, born last December. Foster has three sons from a previous relationship.
