Usher is being a good Daddy for People Magazine, talking in detail about his sons Usher V (aka Cinco) and Nayvid as well as his divorce from their mother, Tameka Foster.
In the interview Usher refrains from bashing his notorious ex-wife:
“I appreciate the relationship for what it was,” he says. “Even though it didn’t work out, I’m glad we got together. I love her as the mother of my children; we just couldn’t be married.”
So what went wrong? Usher says that shortly after the birth of their second child, he and Foster started to disagree over everything from parenting style to his busy schedule.
“We’re two different people,” he says, “and we have two different goals. It just was never going to work out 100 percent.”
Usher also spilled the beans on his kids personalities, explaining:
“Usher [V] is always in everything,” he says. “He’s an instigator. He’s the one who leads his brother astray. I was like that when I was his age.”
“Naviyd is more of a follower, doing whatever his big brother does.So if one gets in trouble, the other one does, too,” says Usher. “They both have a lot of energy. They can wear me out.”
Fortunately, Usher has a babysitter nearby – his mom, Jonetta Patton, lives around the corner. “She spoils them,” Usher says with a sigh. “She lets them do everything that she wouldn’t let me do. Sometimes, when I’m scolding the kids, I sound just like my mom. I’m like, ‘how did Jonetta get in here?’ “
Usher also got in some good promo for his new EP Versus:
“My music is about where I am at the time,” he says. “In Raymond vs. Raymond, I was going through a lot of things, and it came out in my music. My marriage fell apart and I was suddenly a single father. But now, with Versus, I’m singing about being a dating father.”
“I still believe in love,” says Usher. “I believe in marriage. When I fall in love again, everyone will know. I’ll sing about it.”
Paris Hilton will be charged with possession of a controlled substance — .8 grams of cocaine — this according to documents obtained by TMZ … and it’s a felony.
The D.A. will file the case today, TMZ is told.
According to the police report, the cop who stopped the Escalade pulled along the passenger side of the vehicle and smelled “the strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.”
The cop writes he noticed immediately the passenger was Paris. He then observed her trying to roll up the window.
After the traffic stop and a crowd of 100 people gathered around, Hilton said she was “extremely embarrassed” and asked the cop if she could go to the bathroom at the Wynn Hotel.
At the hotel, Paris told the cop she needed lip balm so the cop handed Paris her purse: “As she began to open it, I saw a small bindle of what I believed to be cocaine in a clear baggie begin to fall from the purse and into my hand.”
The cop also says … inside the purse was a “broken tablet of Albuterol” — a prescription medication used to control wheezing. And cops say they found Zig Zag wrappers … commonly used to roll joints.
Paris then admitted the Albuterol was hers but she said the cocaine was not and claimed the purse was not hers — that she had borrowed it from a friend. The cop questioned Paris about the cocaine and according to cops Paris gave an odd answer: “She said she had not seen it, but now thought it was gum.”
Note: Paris has changed her story with friends, saying the purse was hers but had been in the possession of a friend. Paris claimed to cops several cosmetic items in the purse were not hers, but she copped to $1,300 cash and some credit cards.
Cops say they found .8 grams of coke in the purse.
Yes, you’re reading correctly. Jeff Miranda covers the latest issue of Steppin’ Out magazine – where his cover story asks his Jersey Shore girlfriend Snooki to get married. Will she say yes??? He says:
“I want us to be together forever. I could see us having children. I want to pop the question to her. If we got married we would be the best parents around. She’s so loving and puts everyone else before her self. She’ll be a great mother. I love her and want to be with her. I will never break her heart. She’s such a great girl. If people could see us together they would think we’re a match made in heaven. People think I’m using her for fame. But that’s bullshit.”
A 21-year-old Florida man has been charged with trespassing after posing as a middle school student in order to play youth football.
According to youth league and district officials Julious Threatts, 21, used the name Chad Johnson to register for a Tampa Youth Football League comprised of 13 and 14 year-olds, on August 21.
The following Tuesday, Threats attempted enroll in local Webb Middle School under the same alias telling administrators he was homeless.
According to school officials, a social worker was called in and Threatts was then moved into an office when his cell phone rang. When administrators answered the poser’s cell; his mother was on the line and revealed the man’s identity.
In addition to the trespassing charge, he also is being held on charges of violating probation in a 2009 burglary case.
According to one youth league coach, this is not the first time Threatts has tried to pull this stunt. He apparently tried to pose as an adolescent the previous year on another area football team.
Ray McCloud, the athletic director of the youth team Threatts recently attempted to join says,
“This guy had us all fooled. I mean this guy acted just like a little kid. Everything about him was a little kid. He’s a total scam artist.”
This is the second time this year that an adult caught posing as a youth has landed in the national headlines. In May, 22-year-old former Fort Lauderdale basketball standout Guerdwich Montimere was arrested after police said he posed as a 16-year-old boy playing on a Texas high school team.
