Their custody case may have been settled, but that hasn’t put an end to the war of words between Usher and Tameka Foster.
One week after the ‘Scream’ singer opened up about the divorce and the battle to win custody of their kids Usher V and Naviyd, his ex-wife is firing back in order to “clear a few a things up.”
“[This] is the typical stereotype,” Tameka tells Entertainment Tonight, dismissing claims that she was after Usher’s money. “If a woman who has lesser means – even if she is successful and hard-working, does her own thing in her own right – marries someone, what they’ll call ‘marrying up,’ who has more money, they’re automatically a gold digger.”
The celebrity stylist also confirms earlier rumors that Usher was unfaithful, saying that he cheated on her with two of her bridesmaids. She doesn’t blame the friend, though: “I feel that she was vulnerable,” she explains. “She fell into somewhat of a trap… We all know how charming he can be.”
Still of course grieving the loss of her 11-year-old son Kile, who tragically died in a jet-ski accident last month, Tameka says she’s still “in shock,” adding, “I think this will probably be the greatest pain I will ever experience, losing him. But, it gave me strength beyond measure and it made me determined to fight for my other [children].”
