Usher’s custody battle with his ex-wife Tameka Foster is heating up and word on the street is she’s threatening to air all of Usher’s dirty laundry.
Check out what In Touch Weekly reports:
In an Atlanta courtroom on May 21, fighting for rights to see his two boys, the 33-year-old singer was visibly shaken when talking about Usher V and Naviyd.
“They give me purpose,” Usher tearfully explained. “I used to be begged to come home. Now I’m begging to come home to be able to spend some time with them.”
But Usher’s tearful pleas are falling on deaf ears. An insider tells In Touch that 44-year-old Tameka is now threatening to name several big stars she insists her ex husband slept with during their tumultuous two-year marriage, which ended in 2009.
But Tameka might want to think twice about her spiteful tactics against Usher, who is now happily dating Def Jam record executive Grace Miguel, 44.
“Though she’s trying to paint Usher as a wild party boy with a huge sexual appetite, it’s backfiring and making her look bad,” says the insider. “Everyone’s testifying that she’s the one displaying erratic behavior.”
Tameka does seem a little off the wall, but we would love for her to spill the beans. Who’s cookie jar do you think Usher was snatching?
You probably heard the snippet, and with a week to go before Usher’s anticipated album Looking 4 Myself, hits stores June 12, you can now hear the full version of his amazing new collabo with Pharrell Williams. The retro-inspired “Twisted” brings a contemporary twist to blues and funk classics.
“‘Twisted’ is more of a nostalgic record, so when you think about the classic R&B record, we managed a way to modernize it, even though that’s very relevant,” the R&B star told MTV News. “You hear records like Cee Lo, you hear Bruno Mars and also Andre 3000, and that sound is very relevant in this time. So this was kind of our way to tie it all together and give you something different that you probably wouldn’t normally get from me.”
Pop the hood to take a listen now… What do you think?
Looks like Usher is repaying the favor to Rick Ross by jumping on his single – it’s called “Touch ‘N You” off of his God Forgives, I Don’t album which drops July 31st. Not a bad single and it definitely has that feel-good summer vibe.
Pop the hood to listen:
Aight after following the release of Climax and Scream, Our dude Usher teams up with Rick Ross for “Lemme See” off his up coming album “Looking for Myself”, June 12.
If you’ve been hearing some of Usher’s music lately you can hear him trying different styles of music, and in a recent interview he spoke about taking risks with the music he chooses to create.
“If you take no risk, you stand to gain nothing in life. Dare to be different. I don’t look like you, I don’t walk like you, I don’t dance like you, I don’t move like you or talk like you.” He added “That doesn’t make me odd, that makes me who I am. I want people to feel that essence of growth, this album is very consistent in the aspect of being eclectic.”
