Usher's Life Out of Tameka's League

Fri, 13 July 2007 12:00:00 ET

Usher wrote a letter that he is happy with fiancee Tameka Foster and said that the rumor about him being controlled by her is rubbish.
has slammed suggestions his pregnant fiancée Tameka Foster controls his life. The R'n'B singer set the record straight about his relationship with the 38-year-old stylist - who has been accused of forcing Usher to fire his mother, Jonetta Patton, as his manager and publicist - in an open letter.

He wrote: "I am happy, excited, completely clear and independent in my direction, feelings, decisions and I am NOT BEING LED!"

The 'Confessions' singer also refused to deny he is planning to secretly tie the knot at a private house in the Hamptons this month. He wrote: "Since my wedding day will be special to Tameka and I, this is information that we would like to keep private. It's disturbing that the media and bloggers (under the guise as 'fans') continuously speculate on the personal aspects of my life, therefore making assumptions and wrong insinuations that my fans are subject to believe."

Usher, 28, also rubbished a claim made by radio host Tom Joyner that he threatened to "whup my a**" after the presenter joked about the supposed tension between Tameka and his mother. He said: "I have NEVER threatened or harassed anyone from any media format - print, radio, television or internet media."

The star signed off his letter with a plea for privacy. He added: "I understand the fact that I must sacrifice some anonymity for the career I love, however some things are personal like having a child or a marriage. These aspects are not for the public and, to me, are sacred. I would hope my privacy in these areas would be respected."
