The haters are out in full force against Tameka Foster after her canceled wedding last weekend with Usher, even if the singer himself insists all is well.
“Tameka and the baby are fine,” Usher told Us Weekly yesterday. “As of right now, we don’t have a date, but we will let you know when we do.”
Just after the wedding was scuttled, the New York Daily News reports that Usher flew home – alone – to be with his estranged mother, Jonetta Patton, in Atlanta.
This triggered the rumors that he couldn’t go through with the ceremony without Jonetta Patton by his side. After all, says a source, “Usher has always been a mama’s boy.”
Later, Tameka Foster followed him to Atlanta, telling People that she had a baby scare during the tumultuous weekend.
Perez Hilton was the first to report that Foster, who is four months pregnant, had come into in pre-term labor.
But sources close to Usher’s family say she used the supposed scare as a mere ploy “to get Usher to talk to her,” and they are “unsure if there was a baby scare at all.”
“Tameka is using a publicist and is trying to smooth this whole thing over in her favor,” a friend told The Daily News‘ Jo Piazza.
Says another source in the anti-Tameka Foster faction:
“Usher wouldn’t speak to Foster [on Saturday] — and that’s when she told him there were problems with the baby. She just wanted to get him to talk to her again.”
Usher and Tameka Foster flew back to New York together this week.
“She made sure those magazines got their photo op with her and Usher after they left the Mandarin Oriental yesterday,” said the source.
