I wasn’t sure when Tameka Raymond would come out and do an interview about this whole divorce and simply Usher’s Oprah interview, but I knew she would sooner or later.
In the clip below, Tameka Raymond talks openly about Usher sleeping with her bridesmaid, she even says she blames Usher because she feels all of her friends “would admit that he’s very charming.”
He admitted to sleeping with one of the two. It was a very disappointing revelation. I had suspected for some time. You have to understand, this is like family to us. This is someone who was there when my children were born. She took me to the hospital when I was in labor with one of them. I hate to say it but I somewhat empathize with her because I feel that she was vulnerable and she fell into somewhat of a trap.
[A trap how?]
I think that she got very close to him as a result of being my friend and I feel as though he used it to his advantage. I mean, clearly.
[Because he can be charming and just lure the women in or...?]
I think we all would admit that he’s very charming.
When Oprah asked Usher about sleeping with Tameka’s bridesmaid, he ran around the block a few times and when he finally came out he gave an answer that wasn’t really excepted by the public:
Well, the conversation about the bridesmaid has always been one that’s been complicated, very difficult. Outside of my marriage with her and our separation and our divorce, I did have exchanges with [the bridesmaid]. We were friends. She was someone who was a part of the children’s lives before and it had always been perceived that we were in a relationship or we either had some sort ofexchange. This was after the marriage.
Well, I guess I’m going to be watching ET tonight!
