We all know that celebrities are total hams, and this week we are pleased to bring you a roundup of the best, hottest, silliest, and WTF celebrity tweeted pictures!
In this week’s Celebrity Twitter Photos, we see Rihanna and Chris Brown enjoying a romantical vacation in Hawaii. Also, Beyonce tweets her new Pepsi ad, Amber Rose shows off her new baby, Miley Cyrus wants us to see her in a wet T-shirt, Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry reunite, Usher plants a kiss on Katie Couric, and much more!
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?
R&B singer Usher has been in a heated custody battle for three years over his two sons, Usher V, 4, and Naviyd, 3. On August 24th of this year, a judge awarded him primary care of the boys, over their biological mother, Tameka Foster.
In his first sit down interview in a very long time, Usher opens up to Oprah on her show, Oprah’s Next Chapter, saying; “I’ve been a man of integrity throughout the entire process.” He goes on to admit he did try to make the relationship work with the celebrity stylist, “I impregnated this woman, we were in a relationship, we were in love. . . I was taking responsibility.” Wow, did you use those exact words in your vows?
Usher’s mom kibosh’d the first attempt at the couple getting married in 2007 – before a 5 month pregnant Foster could waddle down the aisle. However, the singer didn’t listen and ran off with Foster to tie the knot a week later. But it wasn’t until 2008, before son Naviyd was born that he realized the marriage was in trouble. “She wasn’t coping well with being in this position, being married to Usher, and all that came with that.” Cause you’re hot and woman throw their underwear at you.
Plus, Usher confides, “(I) married someone that people don’t approve of.” Mom still not hot on the hairdresser?
Usher was also pressed about this very nasty custody battle with Foster. “Is there still respect for her as the mother of your children?” Winfrey asked him. “I really feel like we were friends. She made us enemies in a way that I could never, I could never understand,” he said.
TELL US – SHOULD USHER HAVE PRIMARY CUSTODY OF HIS KIDS OVER THEIR OWN MOTHER?
TMZ is reporting that the ugly custody battle between the two exes finally ended today after a judge awarded Usher, 33, custody of his two sons with Tameka, 41.
Usher’s argument was that Tameka was an inattentive and irresponsible parent, while Tameka fired back alleging Usher was an absentee dad who did drugs in front of his kids.
A lot of dirt came out during the trial including the fact that Tameka herself admitted she once threatened Usher and his new girlfriend.
TMZ adds that while Usher got primary custody, Tameka will still have some custodial rights to her kids.
One would have thought the tragic loss of Kyle Glover would have made Tameka Foster and Usher realize what was important and helped put an end to their nasty child custody battle over their two sons together.
Unfortunately it only made things worse as it appears Tameka, 41, is hitting Usher way below the belt by accusing him of only faking his sympathy for his now deceased step-son Kyle. Wow.
According to TMZ, Usher, 33, filed papers with the courts asking them to postpone their child custody hearing scheduled for August 13. Usher’s reasons seemed pretty valid as he reveals he’s concerned the hearing would cause “unnecessary stress and strain” for both himself, Tameka and their two minor children “in the immediate wake of this tragedy.”
Usher also feels Tameka might get an unfair advantage in the hearing because the court would not want to rule against a woman who is still grieving the death of her son.
Tameka, who just buried her son last week, filed her own response through her lawyers during which she got very very nasty.
First Tameka states Usher’s claims of “stress and strain” are “bogus” because “[Usher] visited Kile in the hospital only once” during his 15 days on life support. Did we mention that Usher also lent her his private jet to fly home to be with her son immediately following the tragic accident?
It didn’t end there as Tameka’s response got downright ridic saying Usher didn’t care because he refused to tweet a prayer request for Kile. Seriously folks.
Tameka says she begged Usher to tweet a message about her son, “Please pray for Kile” … but he refused. Tameka also reveals Usher did not attend Kyle’s funeral.
Tameka now wants the judge to DENY Usher’s request and require him to appear at the next scheduled hearing, set for August 13 because according to Tameka, resolving the custody battle is the only way for her to heal and move forward with her life.
I must say I’m very disappointed to see that Kyle’s loss has yet to change Tameka for the better. The fact is that Usher owes absolutely nothing to Tameka when it comes to his step sons. Especially since those step sons have a caring and loving father in the form of Ryan Glover who takes good care of them.
Usher did not need to stay in the hospital everyday nor did he need to make a public tweet in other for him to show he cares. He’s damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t. If he had made that tweet, people would have accused him of using the tragedy to get himself publicity. Tameka’s claims would have had more merit had she not included the ridiculous twitter incident which just makes her appear petty and still very bitter.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? WHO DO YOU FEEL IS AT WRONG HERE?
Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Foster is pictured above at her late son’s funeral in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday (July 27).
TMZ reports that following the sad funeral, the 11-year-old was buried in a nearby cemetery. There’s no word yet on whether or not Usher attended the funeral.
Kyle was declared brain dead accident earlier this month following after he was struck by a jet ski while riding in an inner tube. He then passed away over the weekend from injuries he sustained. RIP Kyle.
