Usher's Wedding Woes Continue

7/29/2007 12:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Why did Usher and Tameka Foster call off their wedding yesterday? It seems that absolutely nothing was working for the would-be bride and groom.

Usher's mother and former manager was part of the problem, as were differences in opinion between the couple. Usher's mother, Jonetta Patton, is against the wedding, and was only invited to the ceremony at the last minute. Her disapproval, a source told People, "is one of the main obstacles."

Usher wanted to take the reception upscale with a catered dinner from chef Jean Georges, while Foster wanted a backyard barbecue. "They only decided two weeks ago to have a wedding," said a source. "They wanted to have it take place before the baby bump started showing."

I think Usher haven't had that much experience with women. I think Ms. Foster is street wise and Usher isn't. I hope he doesn't get tricked by the oldest game in the book. He is too young to take on a ready made family of three children, marriage is very difficult in the beginning because You are trying to get to know each other and to start out with three kids You can't devote yourself to getting to know each other. I think Usher should stand back and look at the situation and reflect on it. I see too many obstacles in this relationship.

He made a mistake by getting her pregnant. He should not marry that thief !!!!baby or no baby!!!!!! Pregnancy doesn't mean marriage. Sometimes a baby makes more problems and people just break up faster. Why get married????????????????/

Chili was older than him also. Why doesn't he just marry his moma and get it over with. That way they both will be happy and can keep their money!

Let's face it, everybody has their own opinion on how this is going to work out. Why is there so much negativity toward this older woman marrying Usher. Yes she is divorced with kids. Did anyone get upset when Demi wed a young Ashton? Older divorced woman, children......

Don't care much about this guy, but at least he's trying to do the right thing about marrying a person you get pregnant. Sean Coombs on the other hand just kick his family to the curb, for his own selfish reasons. I give Usher credit for that!!

Gotta cut the cord sometime, and she should just realize that she's done "rasing" him.

I was a wedding coordinator at a private beach club and differences between brides and grooms are common and expected. A grooms mother openly opposing the wedding was less common but it happened. Usually the mothers who openly opposed the brides were controlling, domineering, difficult women who raised Momma's boys and didn't want anyone closer to their sons than them.

I saw Usher's mother in one of those TV interviews.....what is the word? "CONTROLLING?"
She is a overbearing woman. I could tell. She said things like "things only go right when he listens to me..." "I'm right all the time".....and she wasn't hiding all that righteousness. I guess
she wrote herself into his childhood, his career, and now his adulthood....or so it appears. But he has a life he may not have had without her guidance, etc. Behind every young entertainer is a pushy stage mom peeking through the curtains.
