Last month's 911 phone call in which R&B singer Usher accuses his estranged wife, Tameka Foster-Raymond, of damaging his vehicle has landed online.
On the phone call, Usher breaks down his reasons for accusing Foster.
"I actually wanted to report a situation where my car has been keyed," Usher told the 911 operator. "Yes ma'am, property damage. Can you hold on for one second? It happened last night apparently, I had called and filed a complaint because of a potential domestic violence between me and my ex-wife because she had come to my house, they sent the police there last night, we filed a complaint. My name is Usher Raymond...It was around 12 o'clock, last night [the car was fine]. It was after I had an altercation between my ex-wife and after I filed a complaint and the police came, she fled the scene. But when I woke up this morning I saw my car..." (YouTube)
Foster's camp released a statement regarding the situation last week.
"This is just another attempt to disparage Tameka," a rep said. "It's simply an angry ploy that has no merit. Tameka's own truck was scratched but it's not clear how. The truck is registered in her name, it's not even Usher's car. Why would she vandalize her own vehicle?" (TMZ)
The separation between Usher and Tameka made headlines over the summer.
From the beginning it seemed like sentiments were against the marriage between Usher Raymond and Tameka Foster Raymond. She was older than the 20-something-year-old singing sensation whose career has catapulted him into the realm of first name only fame. She was also married at the time they met and already the mother of three children. So news that Usher had filed for divorce from his wife of less than two years has been met with a collective "I told you so" from fans and industry watchers alike. (CNN)
He has also touched on their relationship on his new song, "Papers."
R&B star Usher is ready to be done with his soon-to-be ex-wife Tameka Foster-Raymond and the singer puts the ordeal to a beat with the release of his latest song 'Papers.' Just as expected the lyrics of the song are as juicy as they are candid. "Who the h*ll argues and fights like dogs at 6 in the morning?/ I know its gonna' be some more sh*t tonight," he sings. "Our pastor's calling telling me I done went too far and/ I'm seen around town and my friends can't recognize me, 'cuz I took a chance on love." (The Boom Box)
