The Diamond-selling singer officially filed for divorce Friday, June 12 after weeks of break up, separation and divorce rumors. According to documents unveiled late Friday evening, Usher and his soon to be ex-wife are due to appear for a hearing July 15. At press time neither party had made an official statement and according to the PEOPLE requests for comment were not returned. Tameka Raymond did however tweet on her Twitter account late Friday, stating “People with good sense restrain anger; they earn esteem by overlooking wrongs ~ Proverbs 19:11. Roughly five hours later, the former stylist twittered about her nearly six month old son Navyid.
