Usher has filed for divorce from wife Tameka Foster, according to the Associated Press.

The "Yeah!" singer reportedly filed the petition on Friday in Atlanta Superior Court.


The filing follows weeks of split rumors for the two, who married in August 2007. The couple has two children, 1 ½ year old Usher Raymond V and 6-month-old Naviyd Ely Raymond. Tameka has three children from a previous marriage.

As previously reported on, in February, the R&B star pulled out of a planned performance at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy Awards party to rush to Tameka's side in Brazil after she suffered a cardiac arrest shortly before undergoing plastic surgery. Tameka was released after 11 days of recovery.
