Files for Divorce

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.”

She was obviously a beard. Everyone knows he's gay. Label tried to give him a wife when he was trying to make a comeback to help his image. Since it is obvious his time is done, he no longer needs the beard. Nothing is real folks. NOTHING.

Ruben actually still sings, in the "Christian" arena.....that's probably why some of you think his career has tanked. "Love Him like I do" is one of his biggest hits. There obviously must be a serious reason for Ruben to decide to file for a divorce. I wish him the best!
