From the sound of things, Usher can't wait to sign those "Papers."
A recording of the 911 call the singer made last month to report that estranged wife Tameka Foster allegedly keyed his car leaked online on Thursday (October 15). During the call, which is streaming on TMZ, Usher revealed that the police had just visited his Atlanta home the night before when the two had a domestic dispute.
"I want to report a situation where my car has been keyed," Usher is heard saying, before the operator confirms that the call is regarding property damage. "Yes, property damage. It happened last night apparently. I called [last night] and filed a complaint because of a potential domestic violence [situation] between me and my ex-wife. She had come to my house. They sent the police here last night; we filed a complaint."
Usher goes on to explain that he found his car keyed the next day after someone came to service the vehicle for a flat tire. He said Foster followed him home and then fled the scene after police were called. Usher told the operator that his assistant and the service team then saw his car keyed the morning after.
"This story is totally preposterous," a rep for Foster told MTV News. "It did not happen. The car in question belongs and is registered to Tameka. Check out the registration number."
Usher, 30, and Foster, 38, have two young sons together from their marriage. According to documents obtained by TMZ, the September spat between Usher and Foster was initially over their children. Usher reportedly told police he believes his car was scratched in retaliation for the fight that occurred hours before.
Usher and Foster are splitting after nearly two years of marriage. The singer shocked fans by filing for divorce this past June amid reports that he and his wife hadn't lived under the same roof in months. Leading up to the divorce Usher was photographed often in Las Vegas, where he was working on new material with longtime collaborator Jermaine Dupri.
In the past, Usher professed his love for Foster repeatedly and defended her from vicious rumors, most memorably in 2008 on "TRL." He also rushed to her wife's side earlier this year when Foster suffered a cardiac arrest following cosmetic surgery. By then, though, things may have been ending between the pair.
Last week, a new Usher song called "Papers" leaked online that perhaps pulled back the curtain on the Usher/Foster union.
"For you I gave my heart and turned my back against the world/ 'Cause you were my girl, girl, girl," Usher sings in the chorus. "I done damn near lost my mama, I done been through so much drama/ I done turned into the man I never thought I'd be/ I'm ready to sign them papers."
Sean Garrett, who helped pen the song, told MTV News that the song's subject matter was a sheer coincidence and had nothing to do with the superstar's divorce. But producer Bryan Michael Cox recently told us that Usher "really wants to express what's going on in his life" in his upcoming Raymond vs. Raymond album.
