Usher has been promising to sell his Georgia mansion and evict ex-wife Tameka Raymond since 2009, and now he is making good on that promise. The famed singer has officially listed the home for a price of $3.2 million.
Purchased in 2007 for $3 million, the home includes 12,544 square-feet of living space. Among the homes many amenities are 6 bedrooms, 7 baths, a giant pool, in-home gym, 4 fireplaces, a library, and 10-foot ceilings.
Usher was rumored to be putting the house on the market months ago; however, he appeared to stall that decision after the death of Tameka’s son. During that tragic event, Usher is rumored to have chartered a private jet for Tameka so she could be by her son’s side.
According to sources close to Tameka Raymond, she is fine with Usher’s decision to sell the home. Her friends say she owns her own small business and doesn’t need handouts to survive.
Usher’s lawyers sent a letter to Tameka in September, notifying her that the home they once shared was to be sold. Under terms of the couple’s divorce agreement, Usher is allowed to sell the home only if he gives Tameka 60-days notice so she can vacate the premises.
It has been a rough year for Usher’s ex-wife; apart from losing her home; Usher also won custody of their two children in August 2012.
Usher may not be angering Tameka with his decision, but there is one group of people he upset recently, Georgia voters.
