NEWSFLASH! Tameka Raymond is not one to hold her tongue when it comes to her ex-husband, Usher.
Earlier this week, the superstar crooner jumped on a remix to Rico Love’s ‘Somebody Else,’ where he blatantly sang about praying for his to move on and stop causing conflict:
Ohh, I’m really hoping she finds somebody else
And it won’t get better til you try somebody else
She be all in to the drama, But I just want us to close
She all about the commotion, I swear she gotta heart of stone

Super producer Jermaine Dupri seems so misunderstood these days. *sigh*
[FLASHBACK: In the Tweets: Jermaine Dupri Responds to Janet Jackson Tell-All Rumors… ]

Jermaine recently sat down with Big Tigger of Atlanta’s V-103 radio station to address the issue, stating:
I wasn’t trying to attack Ciara or anything like that. It ain’t like that… what I was trying to do is make sure the guy who was doing the interview understands how frequently this happens in the music business.
This happens probably EVERYDAY… that somebody’s record sounds like somebody else’s record.
It’s very easy for people to be influenced by music. If you listen to records a lot if you listen to artists a lot… it just happens very frequently.
I didn’t know me saying that was going to turn into this…
Dupri still manages to prove his point when he and Big Tigger compare the two songs back to back.

There’s no question that music from the past ‘inspires’ other songs, and Jermaine Dupri should know… being that the 42-year-old has co-written and/or co-produced No. 1 hits such as Carey’s “We Belong Together” and “Always Be My Baby,” Usher‘s “Burn” and Monica’s “The First Night.”
That being said, the legendary producer recently shared his take on the ‘Blurred Lines’ lawsuit and in doing so… managed to blast Ciara‘s ‘I Bet’ as a rip off of a song he co produced, Usher’s ‘You got it Bad’ !
