Do What Tameka Did to Usher: How to Find Your Spouse’s Hidden Money
Whether you’re going through a divorce or just looking to keep some cash to yourself, a new study is showing that it’s becoming more difficult for people to hide money from their spouses. Case in point? Tameka Foster and her celebrity ex, Usher Raymond. As previously reported, Foster and Raymond are going back and forth in a child custody case. In 2011, Tameka allegedly discovered that the R&B crooner made significantly more than he did in previous years. She later demanded that he pay her $50,000 to cover her legal fees.
So how did she find out about his new financial arrangements? That remains unknown, but there are a number of crafty ways you can find your spouse’s secret stash, most of which are linked to technology.
In 2011, 66 percent of divorce lawyers cited Facebook as the top source for compromising information. Furthermore, 92 percent of them saw an increase in evidence from smartphones. With that in mind, if you’re a computer sleuth or just a scorned lover willing to search, your partner’s hidden marital assets may be just a mouse click away.
