Tuesday Tidbit: Usher

Oh dear.  Divorce can be so ugly.

Word on the celebrity real estate street—via the long-legged gal at Trulia Luxe Living—is that R&B superstar Usher wants to evict his ex-wife, Tameka, from the Roswell, GA mansion they shared before they bitterly divorced. He retained ownership of the lavishly equipped mansion, so the story goes, and now that he's heaved on the market with an asking price of $3,200,000 ex-Missus Usher will need to find another house to call home.

The 12,544 square foot red brick behemoth, according to listing information we perused, sits on about four an a quarter acres and has eight bedrooms, eight full and three half bathrooms, four fireplaces, a double-height foyer, formal and informal living areas, chef-friendly center island kitchen, massive master suite, fitness room and a fully-outfitted beauty parlor with shampoo sink and pedicure station.

The house happens to be in the same gated development where the Larry "Chipper" Jones family lived in an approximately14,000 square foot mansion until he and his missus split and he went an bought a six bedroom bachelor pad nearby.

We're not certain exactly where in the Atlanta area Usher shacks up but we do know that he still owns a 7,762 square foot residence in Alpharetta that he bought way back in late 2008 for $1,200,000.

I thought Usher would have better taste in real estate. I heard some of his real estate st. johns is dope. Too bad I can't say the same for this property.

Don't know why, but on my government computer at my government job, only a big blank box (with a car parked in it) shows up in the place where a photo of the outside of Usher's house is supposed to be. On my smarty phone I can see the whole mcmansion. Impressive. I hope the double height foyer has double curved staircases.

I think he bought this the same year they married. My money says she picked it out.
Surprising she didn't get it in the divorce. Was there a pre-nup?

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in
your post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved
soon. Thanks

This must also be closely located to Kim Zolziak's house she was leasing in Roswell and is the subject of current drama on RHOA. The houses appear to have the same "arhcitect" (though I would say Usher's is nicer).

We do indeed have our fair share of ugly ass McMansions. They are atrocious. i don't know why these people that have a shit ton of money buy these ugly houses in the suburbs. It boggles the mind.

Seems like the listing agent could have at least scooped the leaves out of the pool!

Sadly, 90% of the million+ dollar properties outside the perimeter of Atlanta look like this.

...said it before and I'll say it again - if you really want to see the architecturally relevant and/or old money ATL properties?

THIS is where its at

Another generic mansion. The inside is particularly bad and cheap, but the price also reflects that.

I think Usher has been a real asshole and a bastard in the way that he has treated his ex-wife in his divorce, especially with her son dying. I will never buy or support his music again and yes, I do own his previous albums.

You will get it right eventually. A couple more years of junior college should get your spelling up to an 8th grade level.

You just don't understand do you? If Usher was "one of us" his house wouldn't be on the site. No one would care. SMH
