Ruben Studdard

Files for Divorce

11/16/2011 2:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ruben Studdard Surata Zuri McCant
"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.”

Ruben is not broke. He was in a play last year that ran for the year in major cities. No, not a Tyler Perry play but a legitimate one.

He also is in the process of opening restaurants and touring. He is not broke.

I like Ruben. I don't know why he would marry a girl who's face looks like it was assembled from a Mr. Potato Head kit and whose name sounds like a venereal disease.

Good for you Ruben.

Sad Ruben's marriage did not work out, but it seems HE filed, and,therefore, she did not leave HIM. I am sorry her child is involved, as Ruben seemed to be close with her.

Ruben does very well on the urban charts, and I saw him touring with his good friend, Clay Aiken, last year. Wise move. They were great together, and both have fantastic voices. Probably prefer Clay on stage, but Ruben was good too.
