[FLASHBACK: Usher on Oprah’s ‘Next Chapter (FULL VIDEO)]
In a recent interview for O magazine, the 35-year-old single dad, who was married to the stylist from 2007 to 2009, reflects on the ending of his marriage and surprisingly, he feels that his marriage (and subsequent divorce) was somewhat beneficial.
In the September issue of Oprah Winfrey’s O Magazine, when Usher is asked about his best mistakes, he replied, ‘Getting married at 28.’
The superstar singer goes on to explain how his ‘mistake’ actually helped make him a better man.
‘Most people probably think I regret [‘getting married at 28′] because I ended up getting divorced, but it helped me learn that sometimes I think I know more than I actually do’.
There were at least 2 other good things that came out of the couple’s union… their two children, six-year-old Usher ‘Cinco’ Raymond V and five-year-old Naviyd Ely Raymond.
