When Online Divorce Isn’t A Good Thing

Regular readers of this blog will know how much I champion online divorce and have very good reason to do so! However, an article I read today was a good example of online divorce gone wrong!! Not in the sense of online divorce as a service like we provide, but this has more to do with the announcement of a divorce.
It seems that R&B superstar, Usher, revealed he was to divorce his wife, Tameka Foster, online, before he thought to actually tell her himself. Tameka told US media reporters that she suddenly started getting phone calls and texts asking her if she was ok – she couldn’t undertsand why at first, until one of her friends pointed her to a posting by Ushing revealing he was divorcing her.
Understandably upset, it seems Tameka doesn’t hold too much of a grudge against Usher – even going as far as to say that she hadn’t ruled out a reconciliation.
She even made a semi excuse for the stars behavious by saying that they weren’t really communicating at the time – Usher was busy away producing.
Anyhow – to be clear, I totally think that getting divorced online is acceptable, however, announcing a divorce online BEFORE telling your husband or wife – i’m not so sure thats a good idea!!
