Usher Rehires His Mom, Hides From His Wife


Usher has gone crawling back to his mama like the baby that he is. The singer, who was last heard cooing about banging us in a club, has booted celeb manager Benny Medina and rehired his mother Jonnetta Patton, who helped her son sell 1.1 million copies of his album Confessions in its first week. His latest album only clocked in at a measly 433,000 sold in that seven day period, so clearly the ax needed to fall. Usher gave some creepy comment when interviewed in the July issue of Vibe, telling the mag, “I decided to not fire, not get rid of, but to give [my mother] the ultimate compliment — to retire her to be a full-time grandmother.”

Clearly words of appeasement to calm his crazy wife, who allegedly loathes Mama Usher. But his rep gave the word that Jonnetta’s officially been rehired, which can only mean one thing – mom is always right. [Us]
