Usher’s Ex-Wife Tameka Foster Talks Son’s Death & Being Called A Gold Digger
Foster spoke to Entertainment Tonight’s Nancy O’Dell recently telling the host, “I kind of just felt like it was time to clear a few things up, I have been very guarded and protected.”
Not that they’re saying she’s a gold digger but some people have accused Foster, 41, of marrying Usher, 33, for his money (Okay, so they are saying she’s a gold digger.)
“I think this is the typical stereotype. If a woman who has lesser means — even if she is successful and hard-working and does her thing in her own right — marries someone, that’s what they call ‘marrying up,’ I guess. Someone who has more means or more money, they’re automatically a gold digger. . .The woman is always the gold digger. It’s kind of an insult to the men because it implies they’re not lovable.”, was Tameka’s response to these allegations.
The ex-couple’s turbulent divorce, which was marked with accusations of adultery, ended with the singer being granted primary custody of sons Usher V, 4, and Naviyd, 3.
Regarding accusations that Usher cheated on Tameka with one of her bridesmaids Tameka told O’Dell, “He admitted to sleeping with one of the two. It was a very disappointing revelation.”
Though the exes have a strained relationship, they did come together over the summer when Foster lost her son Kyle after the young boy was hit on the head by a jet ski in a tragic accident.
“I’m still in shock,” Foster said. “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].”
Tell us- Do you think Foster only married for the money?
