A close friend of Tameka Foster
Here are some jewels from that interview.
Essence:Is it true she first learned that Usher filed for divorce after reading about it?
She didn't know that he was going to file. Of course, she knew that there were challenges in their relationship and had been some discord since March and was aware there were some things that needed to be worked through. But did she know that divorce was imminent? No. It was a total surprise.
Is it true she flew to Brazil to have liposuction and subsequently went into cardiac arrest during surgery?
Yes, she went to Brazil with friends but decided to have the surgery on a whim. And yes, she did go into cardiac arrest but she never had the surgery. What she had was an allergic reaction to the anesthesia which prevented her from going through with the surgery.
Do you think she still loves him?
You're married until the divorce is official. Just because she's going through this process doesn't mean that the loyalty and love she has for him is gone. It would be dishonest to say that she doesn't still love him and isn't hurting. Again, the idea that people are excited to see her in pain and going through this with her children is so beyond my comprehension. These bloggers talk about her as if she has personally harmed them. They don't know the woman I know, and to discredit her as a mom or wife is insane. My hope is that people will not rejoice in anyone's failed marriage and allow Usher and Tameka to go through their process privately.
