R&B singer Usher is burying himself in work - to cope with the heartache of splitting from his estranged wife TAMEKA FOSTER.
The Yeah! hitmaker, 30, filed for divorce last month (12Jun09), revealing he had been living apart from the stylist since July 2008 and stating there was "no reasonable hope of reconciliation".
The singer - who shares two children with 38-year-old Foster - is coping with the collapse of his marriage by undertaking a hectic work schedule.
He tells Vegas magazine, "(To be) able to balance it all and to keep your sanity, you have to have people who truly care about you. But staying busy makes it a little bit easier."
Usher is seeking joint custody of the pair's two sons, Usher Raymond V, 19 months, and Naviyd, seven months.
