Foster is apparently willing to clarify up misconceptions about the ex-couple, who were married for two years and had two children together.
Tameka Foster Raymond’s new memoir will be released as Usher and fiancée Jennifer Goicoechea prepare for the birth of their second child together.
The fashion stylist has a lengthy list of celebrity clients, including Jay-Z, Aaliyah, Ginuwine, and Lauryn Hill, but speculation over how much of her relationship with the Grammy-winning singer will be included in her memoirs is rife.
Usher and Tameka were married from 2007 to 2009 and have two sons together.
Following their divorce, the couple made headlines for their contentious custody fight.
They each testified against each other in court, making stinging charges, and they’ve definitely moved on after their painful breakup. As the blended family grows, they are joyfully co-parenting.
Tameka’s memoir, Here I Stand… in a Beautiful State, is set to be released on Tuesday (July 27), and it’s expected to include stories about her personal relationships with the rich and famous, as well as clarifying the rumours about her relationship with Usher that have dogged her for over a decade.
According to AceShowbiz, “she decided to write a book after having a talk with three women on a beach in Bali after several years of contemplating writing about her life.”
“They learned who Raymond’s ex-husband was as they chatted, and they were adamant that she couldn’t be who she claimed to be because his wife had died.”
It goes on to say, “They were referring to her near-death experience in Brazil, which has been grossly misreported in the media.”
“Raymond knew she had to write a book after that hilarious and memorable conversation on the beach. It was time to put an end to all of the rumours and downright lies about her modelling career, marriage, and parenthood.”
Tameka suffered a sad loss in 2012 when her 11-year-old son Kile Glover tragically died in a jetski accident on Georgia’s Lake Lanier.
She reportedly said that the biography isn’t just about her divorce from her superstar ex-husband and the death of her son, but that “readers will laugh” as well.
Tameka’s book is also a homage to her ex, as Usher’s fifth studio album, Here I Stand, was published in 2008, during their marriage.
