Usher Files For Divorce From Tameka Foster-Raymond

June 15, 2009 11:22 AM ET

Usher reportedly filed for divorce from his wife of less than two years, Tameka Foster-Raymond, the AP reports. The 30-year-old Confessions singer filed the petition in an Atlanta Superior Court, and no details regarding the split were revealed. Usher marred Foster, who was previously his stylist, at a lavish Georgia ceremony in 2007, and the couple had two sons together. However, according to MTV, the pair had been pretty much separated for some time, and Usher was recently seen in paparazzi photos partying at a nightclub in Las Vegas. Earlier this year, Foster suffered cardiac arrest while undergoing a plastic surgery procedure in Brazil, forcing Usher to cancel his performance at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party.

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
