Update: Usher Makes Peace With Mom

Posted By on July 30, 2007

Usher has reportedly returned to his hometown of Atlanta to make peace with his estranged mother and former manager, Jonetta Patton, following the cancellation of his pending nuptials to pregnant fiancée Tameka Foster.

"The reason he called off the ceremony is that he couldn't go through with it without Jonetta," sources told New York's Daily News. "He had an eleventh-hour epiphany."

According to those close to the singer, plans for the wedding were moving along as expected last week despite his mother deciding not to attend the wedding and remain in Atlanta. Patton has a long-standing feud with Foster.

"Usher woke up on Saturday (July 28) and said he couldn't go through with it," said the source. "Apparently, he also couldn't bring himself to call all the people who were invited. He had the wedding planner call everyone in the wedding party."

Usher abruptly called off the wedding to his former stylist over the weekend. This news comes just weeks after he wrote an open letter to People magazine defending his relationship with Foster and demanding respect from the media.

At press time there was no confirmation on whether Foster has returned to Atlanta with Usher or if they were still in fact a couple.
