This may come as worse celebrity news to many readers than some random woman taking Blake Lewis off the market:

Usher will marry Tameka Foster at record executive LA Reid’s home in New York’s Hamptons later this afternoon. Despite rumors of her problems with the union, Usher’s mom, Jonetta Patton, will be among the 70 to 100 guests expected at the private, outdoor celebration.

Fans of The Hollywood Gossip have written in for months with complaints about Tamkea Foster. They hate her more than Simon Monjack!

The reasons for this? Tameka is older and not as good looking as Usher.

This stylist, who has worked with Lauryn Hill and Toni Braxton, also has three children with her ex-husband. Her and Usher are also expecting, just as Trisa Sutter and Ryan were before welcoming Maxwell Alson into the world this week.

The soon-to-be bride is trying to look on the bright side, however. She knows that her and Asia Nitollano are two of the most despised celebrities out there.

“He just accepted me for who I am,” Foster, told Essence.com last month about her relationship with Usher. “I have flaws, I have an attitude problem. … Overall, I have issues that a person could either love or hate, but he accepted me completely. And every day he still treats me like we just met.
