R+B superstar Usher ditched ex-girlfriend Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas when he realised she wanted to marry him.

The TLC star and her son TRON moved into Usher's Georgia home last year (03), while she was waiting for her home to be refurbished, and her beau soon felt trapped in the relationship.

He says, "I wanted to pack up and move to Los Angeles or New York, and I'm looking for the support of my woman. She wanted more stability.

"I felt like she wanted to be married.

"There are always signs that something isn't comfortable 100 per cent. We can keep moving forward, or just let go. I take responsibility for choosing another direction."
