A marriage of one former “American Idol” champion is crumbling down. Season two winner Ruben Studdard, who edged out runner-up Clay Aiken to claim the title in 2003, has filed for divorce from wife of three years, Surata Zuri McCants.
The “I Need an Angel” singer, who gained the nickname “Velvet Teddy Bear” on the singing competition, filed the papers in Alabama, and cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the couple’s separation. A representative for the 33-year-old has released a brief statement of the split, simply telling TMZ, “Ruben and Zuri have gone their separate ways.”
