Usher admits he regrets getting married to Tameka at the age of 28. He calls it his “best mistake” in an interview he talked about getting married and then a divorce.
In a sneak peek from Oprah’s upcoming interview with Usher on Oprah’s Next Chapter, the R&B star admitted he regretted getting married at the age he did. He also talked about the bitter custody battled for their two sons that engulfed him and his ex-wife Tameka Foster. He went on to say that he wasn’t really ready to walk down the aisle despite spending $1 million on the wedding.
“kicking myself in the butt” for going through with his marriage to Foster in the first place, Usher told Oprah.
“I always felt like maybe we weren’t ready. And maybe this wasn’t the time or the way to do it,” he continued. “Part of that I think played into the demise of it,” he said.
Usher and Tameka’s marriage lasted 2 years (from 2007 – 2009). After a long custody battle, a judge awarded Usher the primary custody of their two boys in 2012.
