"American Idol" champ Ruben Studdard has filed for divorce, TMZ has learned.

The Velvet Teddy Bear (who won Season 2 back in 2003) filed the papers in Alabama ... citing -- what else -- "irreconcilable differences."

Ruben and his wife Surata Zuri McCants tied the knot in 2008. They have no kids.

A rep for Studdard tells us, “Ruben and Zuri have gone their separate ways.”

Wow!!!...Looks like American "infamous or famous" idiots can't handle marriage. My parents have been married for 32 years. What happened to marriage counseling?

Maybe Ruben can find a new show to launch his career and his wife will suddenly reconcile those differences.

Ahahahha, right because a girl 1/8th his size would actually date this Obese man for love. Right........He gets to eat 10 burgers a day and she probably had to nibble on some celery stick and he thought she was going to make those sacrafices for free? Right......... Let's see what his next girlfriend will look like..I bet she will be closer to his size and will actually love him for him.
