Usher Raymond gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
Knowing absolutely nothing about boxer Roberto Duran, I was intrigued going into his biopic, Hands of Stone. Biopics often work better the less you know about the subject—dramatic license is less distracting—but then, if the biopic is too broad and messy, you can feel even more lost because you have no frame of reference for what’s going on.

The next chapter? I think she needs to go back to chapter 1, a lot of us missed it. Remember when she had to sue her old label because they literally forgot about her? I'm so thankful to my new Atlantic Records family and First Access management for all their support and encouragement! The next chapter is going to be incredible! Full Story

We all have our flavour of celebrity couple nostalgia: Johnny and Kate, Johnny and Winona, Brad and Gwyneth, JLo and Ben. One of my all-time favourites: Usher and Chilli. What? It’s the perfect combination of pop music, drama, and music videos. I have always loved TLC and judging by the longevity of their music, so do a lot of you. Full Story
There’s nothing quite like the sh-t that comes out during a custody and child support trial. You see what happened with Francois Henri-Pinault?

Actually… money wins. Quick saga recap: Usher’s managed by his mom for years. Usher meets Tameka. Mom hates Tameka. Usher defends Tameka’s controversial reputation. Tameka gets pregnant. Mom gets booted. Tameka marries Usher. Usher’s new album sucks. Usher reconnects with Mom. Full Story
So Usher has “rehired” his mom as his manager. When mom was around, he couldn’t make a mistake. When mom was sidelined, his new album went to sh*t. Someone’s ego suffered a boo boo. And only mommy could fix it.
Problem is, his mother hates his baby mother.
Drama ahead. Look out.
Why besides the obvious? Well because Usher’s time may have come and gone. And if and when he fails to recapture his past glory, will he be man enough not to blame his wife? Sigh. They often are not.

Yours in gossip,
PS. The Taupes are not having problems paying the bills.
They officially sealed the deal a few weeks ago in his lawyer’s office but this weekend, Usher and Tameka Foster celebrated their wedding with 200 guests on a sprawling estate in Georgia. Oprah’s best friend was there…but Usher’s mother, Jonetta Patton, was not. They say Tameka is a conniving, scheming cow who pushed aside Jonetta to get to Usher, leaving her previous marriage for a shot at a bigger jackpot, getting pregnant on purpose and backing him into a corner.
