Usher & Tameka Foster to have “real” wedding in Atlanta this weekend


Us Weekly is reporting that Usher and Tameka Foster will have a real, proper, old school wedding this weekend in Atlanta – though as they rightly point out, with these two, you can never be sure. The first – a lavish Hamptons affair – wedding didn’t go so well. Though it still remains unclear, rumors swirled that Usher backed out at the last minute (literally hours before the wedding) and then Tameka reeled him back in/threatened to chop off his balls and eat them for dinner (both equally likely) and the couple blamed pregnancy complications for the postponement. Usher’s mom supposedly hates Tameka (perhaps because of the internet rumors that she’s actually a man, though I think she just has unfortunate jaw structure) and that played a big part in his doubts. They got married a week later at the office of Usher’s lawyer. Sensing that wasn’t the most romantic option, the two are having a “do-over” of sorts.

“After getting hitched in a secret civil ceremony earlier this month, R&B superstar Usher and his new wife Tameka Foster are holding a big bash this weekend for those who missed out.

“Mr. & Mrs. Usher Raymond are planning an official wedding ceremony in Atlanta, according to Us Weekly magazine.

“The two lovebirds were initially going to exchange vows in a star-studded wedding at music mogul Antonio “L.A.” Reid’s Hamptons home on July 28. However, the 28-year-old singer and 37-year-old stylist canceled it at the last minute, and decided to have a civil wedding days later in his lawyer’s Atlanta office.

“There’s no word yet on if Usher’s mom and former manager Jonetta Patton will be attending the celeb-filled celebration. She preferred to spend the day at the spa than witness her famous son marry Foster the first time.”


I’m sorta surprised this thing hasn’t been annulled already. I don’t like sounding like some old lady but it seems pretty clear Tameka Foster has her hooks in Usher and is clinging tight. Or maybe it’s just because the whole internet seems to hate her, and it’s hard to find a single good picture of her. Hip-hop blog really has a love/ hate/disgust relationship with Foster that’s kind of funny.

“But with all the Tameka “tranny” rumors swirling the Internet I decided to investigate these accusations further… and though I tried I don’t think I can defend her. I searched the internet to try to find at least one feminine shot of Tameka looking like a woman with no trannyesque traits, but alas I was unsuccessful. I know they say love is blind, but I say love can also be blinding.

“It is my opinion that Maneka has some serious dirt on Usher that has forced his hand to claim her as his life long chick. Usher was considered to be one of the world’s most eligible bachelors. He could of, and still can, have any chick in the game – so why someone so many years his senior? Is the world hatin’ or does she resemble your local gay club mascot?”


I don’t think she looks THAT much like a man. If I didn’t know her and saw her in person, I’m guessing my evaluation would depend entirely on her voice, so it could really go either way. She’s definitely gotten the reputation of a gold-digging, domineering crazy lady. It’d be really sad if that’s not the case, and she just got that reputation from outsiders looking in. So let’s hope it’s the case and she’s totally crazy – so we have years of good drama ahead of us.
