Tomorrow, Tyler Perry’s latest film, “Why Did I Get Married,” hits theaters. We continue our series profiling celebrity couples to find out why you think they got together in the first place.
Usher and Tameka Foster
Married: August 2007
Children: Three (the two are expecting this winter; Foster has three children from a previous marriage)
Troublespot: This union was full of controversy from the start. The two abruptly canceled their lavish Hamptons wedding only to exchange vows in the office of Usher's lawyer a week later. Although the cause of cancellation was a pregnancy scare, many wondered if the Grammy Award winning artist was simply coming to his senses because of rumors of arguments involving everything from the wedding plans to the fact that Usher's mother, Jonetta Patton, didn't approve of Foster. Although Usher is nine years junior to Foster (he's 28, she's 37), we don't think the entertainer is looking for a mother figure; his relationship with his mother/manager is very strong.
Although their union has had a rocky beginning and Ms. Patton isn't neccessarily feeling her daughter-in-law, can these two survive?
