Looks like Ruben Studdard is pulling a Kim Kardashian (well not exactly) as he filed for divorce from his wife of three years.
Studdard, who won season two of 'American Idol' back in 2003, filed for divorce from his wife, Surata Zuri McCants. Studdard cited irreconcilable differences, according to E! News, on the divorce petition.
Ruben and Zuri have gone their separate ways, his publicist Jocelyn R. Coleman told E! News.
The couple first met in 2006 at a Wal-Mart in Atlanta where Studdard was signing copies of his third album, The Return, according to BET. People magazine reported back in 2008 that Studdard was struck by her beauty and followed McCants to obtain her phone number.
Studdard and McCants wed in his hometown Birmingham in June 2008. The wedding ceremony, held at the Canterbury United Methodist Church, was lavish with 20 groomsmen in the wedding party.
His most recent album and the fourth during his career was released in 2009, entitled, Love Is.
Nicknamed the Velvet Teddy Bear, Ruben Studdard currently is working with Shanachie Entertainment on his fifth album, which will be released next fall, according to USA Today.
I've been waiting a really long time for my fans to finally hear the real Ruben, Studdard said back in July. This will be the first time that one producer and one writer will be working on my entire album to create one sound. I want my fans to feel like that they have been taken on a musical journey by Ruben Studdard.
