Usher to Ex-Wife

Get Outta My House!

9/30/2012 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0926-usher-tameka-getty-1Usher wants to make it clear to his ex-wife ... the days of freeloading are OVER -- because TMZ has learned, he plans to sell the mansion she currently calls home.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ, Usher's lawyer sent Tameka Raymond a letter informing her the 12,000 sq. ft. Georgia home -- which Usher owns -- is going on the market and she needs to find new digs.

Usher has allowed Tameka to live in the home for the last few years -- but per their 2009 divorce agreement, Usher has the right to sell the pad at any time as long as he gives 60 days notice.

According to sources, Tameka didn't take the news well, seeing as she has no income of her own and has been financially dependent on Usher since the divorce.

On the flip side, we're told Usher feels he's given Tameka plenty of time to get her act together ... and enough is enough.

Fun fact: Usher purchased the home in 2007 for $3 million. Unclear what he plans to sell it for.

What is sad that I see no one commenting on, is the kids, and the fact that everything these two are doing is so public when these kids grow up and start reading this **** they will have some resentment and hate towards one or both of the parents. Yes Usher looking kind of low though...

"According to sources, Tameka didn't take the news well, seeing as she has no income of her own and has been financially dependent on Usher since the divorce." ------- Oh, I thought Tameka was a stylist, which is why she claimed she needed the SAKs card so bad.... So either she has a job or not.

Usher is only obligated to provide a home for his children -- NOT HIS EX-WIFE!!! After all, she had the option to negotiate for him to buy her one in their 2009 divorce settlement but TAMEKA CHOSE NOT TO DO SO!!! Nobody put a gun to her head and forced her drag Usher through a "PUBLICLY EXHAUSTING" custody battle. Tameka had opportunities to privately settle her differences with Usher but decided to pass on them. Now her "MEAL TICKETS" are gone and SHE HAS NOTHING!!! The upscale lifestyle she has become so accustomed to living has been snatched away from her. The DIZZY GOLD DIGGER GAMBLED EVERYTHING AND LOST!!! Now it's time for her to "WOMAN UP" and "MOVE ON"!!! It couldn't happen to a MORE DESERVING PERSON!!!

Usher is just foul! No matter what got them to a divorce, does he have to be an ass while she's grieving? How much more is he gonna take from her, he's won, let it be. That sounds like a woman's move. He's a momma's boy, I'd bet she had something to do with it.

Usher is so famously used by ex-wife but he's the undisputed king of R&B/HipHop soul music.

This woman accused Usher of never loving her son after he died and using the situation as a publicity stunt. Im surprised he didn't throw her out sooner

I think most of u r forgetting that it was Usher who started this nasty court battle NOT Tameka. She was fine w/ joint custody and the child support she was getting. Usher is bogus and he is just doing all of this out of spite for her.

tmz, when are you ever going to print an objective story about these two? She owns two stores, so she's not as dependent on this man as you say. And the fact that he tried stripping her of ANY custody of their sons after she buried another, THEN is kicking her out of that home proves that he's a bitchmade punk who's just as vindictive as he's claiming she is. I've lost all respect.

It is about time he kicked her out do not forget when her son died Usher tried to postpone the court date but Tameka wanted it to go ahead and instead of taking time to greive she attacked him on all counts .usher is right 2 years was more then generous time for her to find a new home and income. She deserves it whenever he tried to play nice she just wanted cash
