Financial Lovemaking: Usher’s ex-wife, garnished bank accounts, and divorce

Tameka Raymond, the ex-wife of the singer Usher, has had a hard time since the two were divorced. According to TheJasmineBrand.com, Raymond recently had her bank account garnished in order to pay off a $200,000 lawsuit.

In 2010, Tameka was sued by Antelope Valley Plaza. She had signed a lease with the company for three spaces for her business, which consisted of an indoor playground for kids. Unfortunately, the venture didn’t work out the way she wanted, and she found herself in dire financial straits.

Damages were awarded in the amount of $204,665.15, leaving Tameka to lose the $13,000 or so she had in her Bank of America checking account.

This leads to an interesting question about the lives of celebrity exes, and whether some of them have a hard time letting go. Tameka is a star on the reality TV show, “Atlanta Exes,” and even though she and Usher have been divorced for several years, she and others on the show seem to live off of the names and incomes of the men they were once married to.

This episode of Financial Lovemaking discusses this trend and talks about healthy ways to ensure that you can break loose when the marriage has come to an end. There is also conversation about how to prepare for the financial breakup so that it doesn’t break you down economically. Love can be blissful, but the aftermath can make you feel like a dope addict who is crashing. Here are some thoughts that might help us all understand the dangers of living through somebody else.
