Atlanta native Usher Raymond, whose messy divorce then custody battle for his two children with his ex-wife Tameka Foster became fodder for entertainment sites, has now placed his Georgia estate up for sale, which means the former Mrs. has to vacate the premises, reports the Daily Mail.
Usher reportedly had his legal eagles send his ex notification that she had to leave the 12,544-square-foot mansion back in September. The crooner, who initially purchased the home for a reported $3 million back in 2007, has placed it on the market for $3.2 million.
According to TMZ, Usher allowed Foster to live in the home for the last few years. The couple, who divorced in 2009, agreed as per their divorce settlement that Usher could sell the home at any given time as long as he notifies Foster 60 days in advance.
Foster, who now runs a small business, had no real income at the time of the split and had been relying on Usher to take care of her and the couple’s two children (she also has two children from a previous marriage, one is deceased), according to unnamed sources.
Since Usher gained full primary custody of his two boys, Usher Raymond V, 4 and Naviyd, 3, this past summer, sources say he feels Foster has had more than enough time to make other living arrangements.
The home in question has 6 bedrooms, 7 baths, 10-foot ceilings, a pool, in-home gym, 3 fireplaces, and a library.
Ironically, it was revealed in October that Tameka has been threatened with another eviction after she failed to pay her landlord the rent for the three retail spaces in a Georgia complex she has rented for the last two years.
Antelope Valley Plaza (AVP) claims she owes $36,943, plus late charges and unpaid taxes, which comes to about $50,000. However Tameka, who runs an indoor play area for children in the building, accused AVP of breaching their contract and requested that the case be dropped.
