Usher Refused To Maintain Loveless Marriage For Kids

R&B superstar USHER refused to entertain the idea of staying in his troubled marriage with TAMEKA FOSTER for the sake of their two sons, because he didn't want to give up on finding lasting love.
The OMG hitmaker filed for divorce from stylist Foster in June 2009, insisting the couple, which wed in 2007, had not lived together for over a year, despite welcoming second son Naviyd in December 2008.
But Usher insists the idea of remaining married so they could raise their kids together in a family environment was not an option that appealed to him.
He tells Vibe magazine, "They would only be looking at a product of something that I'm tolerating or she's tolerating. I don't wanna be tolerated. I wanna be loved. I don't want to tolerate someone. I wanna love them. And I can love Tameka for who she is, but I don't have to necessarily be in a relationship with her."
The couple is also parents to two-year-old Usher V.
