Though his marriage to Tameka Foster was short-lived – they divorced after just 2 years – Usher insists he has no regrets.
“I appreciate the relationship for what it was,” he tells People. “Even though it didn’t work out, I’m glad we got together. I love her as the mother of my children; we just couldn’t be married.”
The former couple now share custody of their boys Usher V, 2 1/2, and Naviyd, 1 1/2, and Usher says that they definitely keep him on his toes.
“Usher [V] is always in everything,” he reveals. “He’s an instigator. He’s the one who leads his brother astray. I was like that when I was his age…. They both have a lot of energy. They can wear me out.”
The doting dad says he’s thankful for the help of his own mom – even though she tends to spoil her grandkids!
“She lets them do everything that she wouldn’t let me do. Sometimes, when I’m scolding the kids, I sound just like my mom. I’m like, ‘how did Jonetta get in here?’ ”
