Tameka Raymond and her famous ex-husband, Usher, have been plastered all over the headlines for months since their bitter custody battle and Usher’s revealing interview on “Oprah’s Next Chapter.” But, on Wednesday, Sept. 26, Raymond sat down for an interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” and discussed multitude of topics concerning her high-profile marriage, including claims that she was a gold digger.

In a preview of the interview, via RadarOnline, Raymond claims that she didn’t marry Usher for his money and that such claims are sexist and an insult to Usher.

“I think this is the typical stereotype. If a woman who has lesser means, even if she is successful and hardworking and does her thing in her own right, marries someone that’s what they call marrying up, someone that has more means or more money, they’re automatically a gold digger,” Raymond said.

“I haven’t seen one unity where someone hasn’t been called a gold digger. The woman is always a gold digger. It’s kind of an insult to the men because it means they’re not lovable,” she said.

Well, she’s not alone in receiving gold digger accusations. Check out some other alleged gold diggers below. – nicholas robinson
