Usher Talks About His Mum Missing His Wedding
The R&B singer on that OMG moment...
R&B superstar Usher has spoken about his mother Jonnetta Patton not backing him when he married singer Tameka Foster three years ago.
Usher claims that he didn’t really understand the reason why his mother wasn’t supportive of his marriage, which eventually failed.
He told VIBE Magazine: "My mother, uh, I guess she has her own reasons, but that wasn't for me to worry about. This is my life and I think that parents should be able to have unconditional love for their children and their decisions, regardless of how they feel.
"Of course they may not be necessarily supportive, but it's not their life. At that point they have to take their hands off. I never questioned my mother's passion for me; maybe [her] passion for my decision and that's obvious.
“She didn't show up at my wedding. I was very disappointed. I wouldn't do that to my child. Me and my mother are very close, and have always been. I couldn't think of a greater time to show support, 'cause it's a very hard decision, period, to take that walk."
