Usher Denies Marriage Crisis
R+B superstar USHER has lashed out at reports he has separated from his wife TAMEKA FOSTER.
The Yeah! singer married stylist Foster last September (07), and the pair welcomed a son, Usher Raymond V, two months later (Nov07).
Online reports recently surfaced suggesting the couple split last month (Apr08), but the star's manager Benny Medina insists they are still together.
He says, "It's 100 per cent not true. Usher and Tameka are currently traveling in Europe together as a family on his promotional tour."
And Usher has backed up the denial, telling U.S. chatshow host Ellen DeGeneres on her show due to be aired on Friday (23May08), how his 5-month-old son and wife are the main focus of his attention.
He says, "My approach of life he is my reason for living - outside of my wife, obviously, for helping me have him."
Foster has spoken out on several occasions of the difficulties she has faced since marrying the R+B hunk, telling America's Essence magazine last year (Dec07) how the singer's black female fans have made her life a misery.
She said, "We (black women) don't like ourselves...he has a black girl, and it's like, 'She's horrible and she's ugly!' OK, maybe I don't fit the cookie-cutter standard - 25 and a size two - but this is who he loves."
