2009-02-11 - Usher and his wife TamekaAfter just two years of marriage, it looks as though Usher's marriage to Tameka Foster-Raymond is on the rocks, and they're ready to call it quits.

According to a report from In Touch, the singer and wife have been living separately for nearly a year now, and as of Thursday morning (June 11), Ursh filed divorce papers.

Right now, a source close to the family confirmed the split, and says Usher's main concern is his children. He has two with Tameka -- 17-month old Usher Raymond V, and 6-month old Naviyd Eli.

"Usher's primary concern is for his children," the source said. "He is a great father and just wants to do what is right for them."

The news comes as the singer popped up on numerous gossip sites with a mystery woman while on a trip to Los Angeles. It was later revealed that the woman is a project manager for Def Jam Records.

In some of the photos, Usher was snapped with his wedding ring, fueling rumors of an impending split.

The couple married during a ceremony in Atlanta in August 2007, amidst firestorm of reports of both family drama and Foster-Raymond's alleged controlling behavior.
