Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Foster recently sat down with S2S Magazine and spoke about her life after Usher, her run-ins with his mom and how black women hated her the most.Here’s an excerpt from the interview:
On falling in love with Usher: “At that time I would say he was my best friend. I’m a regular woman that happened to fall in love with an artist. Actually, I didn’t fall in love with an artist; I fell in love with a man. We were both going through kind of a tumultuous time in our relationships. I was getting ready to go through a divorce, separating from my first husband. He had broken up with his girlfriend. He had been in a long-term relationship with someone that he really cared about. And I guess we leaned on each other”.
On the bashing her marriage to Usher received on blogs: “It’s a sad scenario because the lack of support that we received was from the Black women. Only the ignorant people are the loud one and are the ones bashing on blogs and talking and writing up terrible stories and false reports and all of that. That’s ignorance. People with sense,they’re busy”.
On Usher’s romance with Grace Miguel: “I’ve heard it, of course. I’ve never seen it so I don’t know. It doesn’t make me feel any kind of way because he’s not my husband anymore.”
