Usher has issued a public thanks to his management team for helping him cope with his ongoing divorce from stylist wife TAMEKA FOSTER.
The Yeah! hitmaker, 30, filed divorce papers in his native Atlanta, Georgia last Friday (12Jun09), revealing he had been living apart from his wife of almost two years since last July (08).
According to court documents, the couple has been living apart for over a year after determining there was "no reasonable hope of reconciliation".
And the singer credits his loyal team for being so determined to get him back "to a good place" and focus on the former couple's two children.
He tells U.S. news programme Entertainment Tonight, "I'd hate for (people) to assume that. If there's any turmoil, I think it's managing all of it, but having an incredible team that helps me do that it makes it very easy, or easier than it would normally be attempting to do it myself.
"What I do is, I try to get (my work) done and get home on the weekends if possible ... but when I'm with my boys it's just all about them."
Usher is seeking joint custody of his sons with 38-year-old Foster - Usher Raymond V, 18 months, and Naviyd, six months.
The couple is due in court on 15 July (09).
