Usher doesn't regret getting married

USHER claims getting married is the "best mistake" he has ever made.

The 'Good Kisser' hitmaker, who has two sons, Usher Jr., six, and Naviyd, five, with ex-wife Tameka Foster, insists he has no regrets about tying the knot with her in 2007 even though they divorced two years later.

Asked about his best mistake, the 35-year-old star told the September issue of O magazine: "Getting married at 28."

He added: "Most people probably think I regret it because I ended up getting divorced, but it helped me learn that sometimes I think I know more than I actually do."

The 'Voice' USA mentor secured primary custody of his children in 2012 after a bitter court battle with former celebrity stylist Tameka.

The 'More' hitmaker previously said his sons are his "most prized possession."

Earlier this year, he said: "They are my greatest investment, my most prized possession, it's everything."

Tameka, 43, previously confessed she "nagged" Usher a lot during their marriage because she struggled to cope with the pressure of being in a high profile relationship.

Explaining the reasons for their split, she said: "Pressures from the public, you know. But then I did dumb stuff. I made a lot of mistakes. He always told me, 'You gotta drink a lot of milk.' You know, you gotta toughen up because I wasn't ready for the scrutiny. And then to just hear the things people would say about me, it hurt me a lot. And I think I nagged him as a result of what I was going through."
