The wife of R&B singer Usher says she was surprised when the entertainer filed for divorce earlier this month and claims the two were intimate less than a week before he moved to end the marriage.
Tameka Raymond disputes Usher's claims the couple have been separated since July 2008. Raymond says in court documents filed Monday in Fulton County Superior Court that she "had every reason to believe her marriage was intact" and that two were "intimately together as husband and wife as recently as June 6."
Usher, whose real name is Usher Raymond IV, filed for divorce on June 12. He says the marriage is "irretrievably broken." The couple married in August 2007 in a lavish ceremony. They have two sons.
