Usher Ex No Gold-digger

Usher's estranged wife wasn't a gold-digger, insists her friend.

Tameka Foster - who has two children, 19-month-old Usher V and eight-month-old Naviyd Ely, with the R'n'B star - is tired of rumours suggesting the make-up artist only married Usher to get her hands on his fortune.

Nyeisha Dewitt, Tameka's best pal, said: "To say that she's a gold-digger... that's just not the case. That just totally discredits her as a professional, as an entrepreneur, as a creative thinker, and it just totally destroys anything that she took her money and time to build.

"People say that she just had a baby so that she could get paid. Why can't you just be a regular person who has a wonderful job, a great career, who's well respected for the work that they do, and be happy with that and then just fall in love with someone? Then you turn into a gold-digger? How does that happen?"

Nyeisha insists Tameka and Usher were the perfect couple when they married in August 2007.

She said: "They just seemed to really complement one another in that way and bring out one another's strengths and balance each other out."

Usher filed for divorce from his wife of two years in Atlanta, Georgia, on June 12, claiming they had been living apart for almost a year.

The documents stated there was "no reasonable hope of reconciliation" and the relationship was "irretrievably broken".

He has also filed for joint custody of Raymond and Naviyd.
