The “Love in This Club” singer is seeking a full rundown of all documents his missus has kept during the course of their marriage, which began when the duo tied the knot in a quiet civil service Aug. 3, 2007.
That includes tax files, paycheck stubs, bank account information and other financial records, insurance policies, real-estate rental agreements, medical records and automobile registrations.
On the more personal—and potentially acrimonious—side of things, he’s also seeking copies of “notes, cards, letters, photographs, film, documents, tapes, voice recordings, gift, jewelry, clothes” or other evidence that reflects on Usher’s conduct during their marriage, as well as detective reports, photos or recordings that have resulted from either “surveillance or investigation” of her onetime better half.
The latter request seemingly brings credence to rumors that Raymond had hired a private detective to trail Usher during their time apart.
Making sure no stone is left unturned—or potentially leaked to the media, no doubt—he’s also requesting copies of “any and all diaries or personal notes kept…during the course of the marriage.”
Finally, Usher is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their two sons together, 18-month-old Usher V and 6-month-old Naviyd Ely, saying the tots “are substantially dependent upon each party for support.”
