The ex-wives of mega-stars Usher Raymond (pictured top left) and Cee Lo Green (pictured bottom) are reportedly in talks with VH1 to do a reality show similar to the cable station’s current “Hollywood Exes” but based in Atlanta, according to Radar Online. Usher’s former missus, Tameka Foster (pictured top),and Green’s ex lady-love, Christina Johnson (pictured bottom), both had marriages that wound up in ugly divorces, and VH1 is supposedly keen on getting the girls to dish dirt about their former husbands.
The unfortunate marriage between Usher and Foster was front page news for months on end. The couple, married only five years from 2002 to 2007 and had one of the nastiest divorces on record, with both slinging mud and incessantly ripping each other apart. The couple also had a custody battle over their two boys, with Usher eventually gaining full custody of the children.
Green and Johnson’s marriage also had its troubles. The pair got hitched back in 2000, and not a year later, Johnson reportedly called the police, stating that her hubby had brandished a wooden statue as they argued outside of their home.
In the midst of the heated argument, Johnson claims that when she went inside their home, Green smashed the windows of her Jaguar before leaving the premises. Two days after the altercation, the “Forget You” singer was arrested for simple assault (family violence) and disorderly conduct.
The court mandated that Green attend domestic violence counseling and would be subjected to random drug and alcohol testing. The pair split only four years later, with Johnson citing “mental and physical cruelty” and stating that she and Green had separated a year earlier.
So it is not surprising that both Green and Usher aren’t reportedly thrilled about the possibility of their exes getting a reality show.
An insider allegedly told Star Magazine that Green “joked that his ex may spill some of his dirty secrets,” while Usher is genuinely concerned about the concept.
The unidentified source went on to reportedly state, “Usher and Tameka don’t get along, and he knows she’ll be happy to talk about his personal life so that she can become the star of the show. Usher’s concerned because she’s still bitter. Tameka is having financial problems and feels like this could be her meal ticket.”
