The ex-couple were married for two years and share two children together, and Foster is reportedly ready to clear up misconceptions.
Usher and Tameka were wed from 2007 to 2009 and share two sons together, and later, the pair made headlines over their bitter custody battle. They both testified against one another in court as they relayed scathing accusations, and following their acrimonious split, they’ve clearly moved on. Now, they are happily co-parenting as the blended family expands.
“After several years of contemplating writing about her life, she decided to write a book after having a conversation with three women on a beach in Bali,” a press release reads, according to AceShowbiz. “As they spoke, they learned who Raymond’s ex-husband was and they were insistent there was no way she could be who she said she was because his wife had died.”
“They were referring to her near-death experience in Brazil, which has been grossly misreported in the media,” it continues. “After that hilarious and memorable conversation on the beach, Raymond knew she had to write a book. It was time to clear up all the rumors and outright lies about her fashion career, her marriage, and her parenting.”
In 2012, Tameka suffered a devastating loss when her 11-year-old son Kile Glover tragically passed away following a jetski accident on Lake Lanier in Georgia. She reportedly added that the memoir isn’t just about her split from her superstar ex-husband and the loss of her son, but “readers are going to laugh,” as well.
The title of Tameka’s book is also a nod to her ex as Usher’s fifth studio album released in 2008 during their marriage was titled Here I Stand. Check out a trailer for Tameka Foster’s memoir below.
