It’s no secret that Usher’s divorce drama was nothing but barbaric.
The 35 year-old, R & B Icon, suffered a lengthy custody battle against his ex-wife, stylist Tameka Foster. Shocking though, he doesn’t regret marrying her at all.
“Getting married at 28,” he says was his best mistake ever! The former couple married in 2007 and divorced in 2009.
“Most people probably think I regret it because I ended up getting divorced,” he tells O, The Oprah Magazine’s September 2014 issue,” but it helped me to learn that sometimes I think I know more than I actually do.”
Last summer, The Voice coach won primary custody of his sons Usher V, 6, and Navivyd, 5. Family has become more important than ever to him since!
According to the “Good Kisser” singer, his favorite family traditions are “reunions, or what I call red-cup celebrations: Everybody’s hanging out on the lawn, drinking out of those plastic red cups, eating fried chicken, and dancing to loud old-school music.”
“Sometimes the simpler the celebration is, the better,” says Usher.
Everything happens in life for a reason. Every mistake made has a lesson to be learned attached to it. It’s great to see Usher happy and at peace with things between him and Tameka. With the value of family becoming more and more important to him he will prove to be a great father figure to his boys.
Speaking of family, my favorite family tradition is coming together on Christmas Eve for “family game night.” The house is filled with lots of love and joy. What’s your favorite family tradition? Share below.
