Usher on Divorce:  Just Couldn't Be Married

Usher sings about her personal trials and tribulations on most of his albums, but up until now he hasn’t spoken about his marriage and divorce to Tameka Foster.

In a new interview with People, the rapper gets candid about just that.

"I appreciate the relationship for what it was," he tells the mag. "Even though it didn't work out, I'm glad we got together. I love her as the mother of my children; we just couldn't be married."

He talks about what led to the demise of their marriage, saying it began after they started having kids.
"We're two different people," he says, "and we have two different goals. It just was never going to work out 100 percent."

Despite their differences, Usher says he and Foster share custody of their two children Usher V and Naviyd.
"We had to put our issues aside and focus on raising them," he says. "There will never be another mother for my sons, and I'll always be their father."

Usher also says his music goes hand in hand with what he’s going through in his life.
"My music is about where I am at the time," he says. "In Raymond vs. Raymond, I was going through a lot of things, and it came out in my music. My marriage fell apart and I was suddenly a single father. But now, with Versus, I'm singing about being a dating father."

Even though Usher has gone through heartbreak and divorce, he says he could still see himself getting married again. "I still believe in love," says Usher. "I believe in marriage. When I fall in love again, everyone will know. I'll sing about it."

They’re lucky that there’s no hard feelings, and they’re able to communicate for the sake of their sons! Most Hollywood divorces are a lot more ugly!
