Usher, who last year married Tameka Foster after postponing the wedding to his then 5 months pregnant fiance only hours before the ceremony, has this to say about his marriage.
And while Usher insists marriage and commitment have changed his life for the better, he admits monogamy doesn’t come naturally to him – and he has to fight his wandering eye.
The star tells Cosmopolitan magazine, “I’m good at making love, but I’m not good at being in love. It’s a conscious decision every day to love the person you’re with.”
It seems to me it’s only a matter of time before he cheats. This comes hot on the heels of his comments last month to Entertainment Weekly.
‘I was just looking for good times. In the club. Not living right. This woman. That woman. Uncertain. Unsure…. But there does come a time when you start thinking, Who’s gonna love me and take care of me when I’m down? Who’s gonna care about making sure that I’m okay? I need a companion. Damn.”
”I understand the whole thing about the drama between me and my mother,” he concedes. ”To be honest with you, we had a very one-sided relationship, and for obvious reasons: She had to make the majority of the sacrifices; otherwise we didn’t go forward…. I’m pretty sure that my mother would want to forever manage me. She’ll always be my partner.”
Do I smell divorce? Last month rumors of a divorce in the works which was denied by his rep. While Usher might be struggling to love the one your with, I suspect Tameka is tired of taking care of her adolescent husband and a baby at the same time.
Their whole marriage has been plagued by suggestions that not all is well – shortly after the two met he fired most of his staff, including his own mother who did not attend either of his weddings. Tameka is supposedly domineering, she definitely has a criminal record, and she likes to try to control his career. When you break up a family, poke your nose into part’s of your husband’s life, and generally are a demanding bitch, it’s highly likely that your not-undateable husband is going to go out and get himself a new piece of arm candy.
