R&B artist Usher reportedly ordered his ex-wife, Tamkeka Raymond, in September to move out of his home in Georgia.

TMZ now reports that Usher has placed the 12,544 mansion back on the market for $3.2 million, $200,000 more than he spent on the home in 2007.

The home includes six bedrooms, four fireplaces, a library, an outdoor pool, and a gym, in addition to other luxury home additions.

According to sources, Usher felt he had given Foster plenty of time to find a new home, especially since she is no longer financially responsible for their two sons.

In August, Usher gained sole custody of his children, Naviyd Ely Raymond and Usher Raymond V. The two, who married in 2007, divorced a little more than two years later. 

In September, Usher sat down with Oprah at his own home in Atlanta for the first candid interview since he filed for divorce in 2009 with Foster.

From his custody battles over their two children to cheating, Usher held nothing back. 

Foster, a celebrity stylist, was 38-years old when she and Usher, who was 28-years old, married, causing Usher fans around the world to label her a gold-digger and cradle robber.

At the time, she was five months pregnant with their first child, Usher V.

"Everybody told you not to get married ... everybody right?" Oprah asked the mega-star.

"It was a pretty wide spread ... there were a ton of people of believed in the marriage, there were a ton of people who didn't," Usher replied.

He later admitted that it was the opinion of others that played a great deal in the demise of their marriage, as it caused insecurities on both he and Foster. Usher's mother and former manager, Jonetta Patton, even refused to attend the wedding, which only added to his insecurities about the relationship.

Now, Usher admits that he may not have been ready to get married as quickly as he did.

"I wanted to give her the wedding that she wanted, but I wasn't quite ready," the "U Remind Me" singer confessed. 

Discussing his custody battle over their two sons, Usher called the battle "an attack," saying to Oprah, "I really felt like we [he and Tameka] were friends. She made us enemies in a way that I could never understand."
