Normally I have nothing but respect for celeb dad and singing superstar Usher, but a recent statement he made has me seriously questioning my initial opinion. It’s no secret that ever since his disastrous divorce from Tameka Foster in 2009, the 32-year-old father of two has been enjoying his new-found single swagger. “Seeing how marriage didn’t work out for me the first time, I’m in no rush to do it again,” Usher explains to Playboy Digital.
That statement seems completely reasonable, had it ended there. Unfortunately it didn’t. Usher continues, “Maybe I can find a couple of women who are open-minded. Look at how Hugh Hefner does it, with a harem of women.”
The most important difference between Hugh Hefner and Usher? Hugh Hefner doesn’t have two sons under the age of 5-years-old (Usher V, 4, and Naviyd, nearly 22 months) that he needs to set a good example for. Hopefully this father of two was joking when he made that comment, because the effect that multiple women could have on his young boys could be very confusing and detrimental to their life.
Come on, Usher! We know you’re a better man than that!
