Usher speaks about his relationship with ex-wife, Tameka Foster

“I appreciate the relationship for what it was,” he says. “Even though it didn’t work out, I’m glad we got together. I love her as the mother of my children; we just couldn’t be married.”

The problem that made them apart was his busy schedule and also the style of parenting.

“We’re two different people,” he says, “and we have two different goals. It just was never going to work out 100 percent.”

“We had to put our issues aside and focus on raising them,” he says. “There will never be another mother for my sons, and I’ll always be their father.”
