R&B Singer Usher Files for Divorce

Usher filed for divorce today from his wife of 22 months, Tameka Foster Raymond. The filing, in Georgia, was made immediately before the office closed to avoid media attention

The couple married in August of 2007. They have two children together, 18-month-old Usher Raymond IV and 6-month-old Naviyd Ely Raymond. Foster also has three sons from a previous relationship.

A source recently told PEOPLE that the marriage between Usher, 30, and Foster, 38, had been strained for months. The pair reportedly had been living separately for some time, as Usher has relocated to Nevada to work on his next solo album.

Throughout their marriage, the couple was plagued by rumors that the singer was being controlled by Foster. Questions about Usher's fidelity also surfaced.
