Gossip Center reports: According to Entertainment Weekly, the pair will make their triumphant return to the singing competition series for the sixth season.
Gossip Center reports: The “You Remind Me” singer chatted about his new gig as a coach on “The Voice,” and also discussed his new take on comedy.
Usher explained, “I want to prepare you because you guys are gonna get used to a different person. My humor doesn’t always connect. I kinda branded myself. I’m the new Larry David. I’m the black Larry David. I’m kinda misunderstood. I curb your enthusiasm.”

Life and Style reports: The entertainer recently shared this adorable photo with his 3-year-old son Naviyd – and we can’t believe how much the little guy looks like his famous father…even making that silly face!
“Every time I open my mouth, I try to give as much advice as possible,” Usher, who is also father to 4-year-old Usher Raymond V, says about his sons. “If my children are unclear on something, I take the time to explain it to them.”
Just two months ago, a judge awarded the 34-year-old singer primary physical custody of his boys, whom he shares with ex-wife Tameka Foster.
“I’ve been a man of integrity throughout the entire process, which I hope my boys will understand,” he’s said of the situation. “That’s the way to go. That’s the way to be.”
Usher has been a very busy guy lately. Aside from spending time with his family, the singer is set to join Adam Levine and Blake Shelton on the 2013 spring season of The Voice with latin songstress Shakira.
Contact Music reports: Usher‘s ex-wife is being sued for $50,000.
Tameka Foster – who recently lost custody of the couple’s two sons Usher Raymond V and Naviyd to the ‘Climax‘ singer – is reportedly being evicted from three retail spaces she rents in Georgia after failing to pay her landlord.
Antelope Valley Plaza (AVP) says Tameka owes almost $37,000 in rent and they are also suing her for late charges and unpaid taxes, according to TMZ.
However, Tameka, who runs a play area for children from the building, has accused AVP of breaching the contract and has asked for the case to be dropped.
Meanwhile, it was recently revealed Usher is planning to sell the Georgia mansion Tameka currently lives in and has ordered her to move out.
She has been living in the house alone since they split but their divorce agreement stated that Usher could sell the property at any time as long as he gave her 60 days notice.
The popstar’s lawyer has already sent Tameka a letter informing her of his plans to sell the 12,000 sq. ft. house, which he bought in 2007 after getting engaged to the former stylist.
Tameka is said to be devastated because she has been struggling financially since their divorce in 2009.
People reports: And win he did last night at the Pencils of Promise Gala in New York City, where the singer (and a judge on season 4 of The Voice) bid that many hefty pennies for a goldendoodle puppy. The pooch was being auctioned to raise funds for the charity, which builds schools in Laos, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Ghana.
At last year’s gala event, the singer tried to take home a puppy at auction, but was outbid by a family who eventually named the pooch Usher.
With a new dog at stake this year, Usher was determined to win the auction – but his initial bid of $10,000 was topped by fellow gala attendee Jessica Szhor, who placed an $11,000 bid. Not to be outdone two years in a row, Usher finally won the copper-colored puppy with a $12,000 offer.
Usher looked thrilled, throwing his hands up in the air to celebrate. The dog seemed to get attached to her new owner quickly, whining when Usher left his table to make a speech.
