Usher to Fans, Celebrity News Outlets: Give Tameka Foster a Break!

by at . Comments

It's hard to say who celebrity gossip readers hate more: Spencer Pratt or Tameka Foster?

Okay, the answer is most likely the awful fiance of Heidi Montag. But the woman Usher is set to marry isn't exactly a fan favorite, either.

Therefore, the singer felt the need to pen an open letter to People magazine in which he defended his relationship and criticized all the false celebrity news out there regarding it.

One issue: The report by the New York Post that the couple is planning to marry at the end of July in the Hamptons. While Usher won't divulge a wedding date, he says: "Since my wedding day will be special to Tameka and I, this is information that we would like to keep private."

Another topic is radio host Tom Joyner's claim that Usher threatened him. According to the New York Daily News, Joyner said Usher threatened to "whup my a--" after he joked about rumored tension between Foster and Usher's mother, Jonetta Patton. Says Usher: "I have never threatened or harassed anyone from any media format."

Finally, Usher wants to make it clear that Foster is not running his life; she isn't the alcohol to his Britney Spears. If you can follow that metaphor.

"I am happy, excited, completely clear and independent on my direction, feelings, decisions and I am not being led."

The full text of Usher's letter follows:

"It has already been announced that I plan to marry this year. However, since my wedding day will be special to [Tameka Foster] and I, this is information that we would like to keep private. It's disturbing that the media and bloggers (under the guise as 'fans') continuously speculate on the personal aspects of my life, therefore making assumptions and wrong insinuations that my fans are subject to believe.

"I am happy, excited, completely clear and independent on my direction, feelings, decisions and I am NOT BEING LED. Some media and bloggers have been totally intrusive, they have misconstrued aspects of my personal life and, because of this, my 'true' fans are not sure about what is fact and what is fiction. There is a difference in stating an opinion versus drawing a conclusion that is incorrect.

"As previously reported, I have NEVER threatened or harassed anyone from any media format â€" print, radio, television or Internet media. At this point the best thing to say to my fans is just because it sounds enticing and it MAY sound 'true,' that does not make it truth. I understand the fact that I must sacrifice some anonymity for the career I love, however some things are personal like having a child or a marriage. These aspects are not for the public and, to me, are sacred. I would hope my privacy in these areas would be respected."
â€" Usher


In response to Usher's letter the businesss that you are in will not let you have a privite life(which you are entitled to) your whole life is like an open book whereever you go and whatever you do will always be out there for evryone to see or hear about. Everyone is not concerned about your marriage and baby per say they are upset about the way you have changed since this engagment was announced and the way you have treated people that have stood by you and your carreer. Don't let one moment destroy your whole life. Some people are like seasons they come into your life for a little while to receive their harvest and when they have gotten all they can and feel they have gotten all they can they areis gone. Look DEEP before it is to late.
