On Monday, R & B superstar Usher released his new single Papers about his messy divorce from estranged wife Tameka Raymond, but can exclusively reveal that the singer is the one holding up the process by not signing off on the divorce papers.

EXCLUSIVE: Court Confirms No Divorce Yet

A source close to the couple claims the singer has delayed inking the final signatures on papers that he filed at Atlanta's Superior Court. "Tameka thinks that it's ironic that Papers is his comeback single when she just wants him to sign the paperwork and finalize the divorce," the source told "The terms and conditions have been agreed on for around a month but he keeps stalling on them and she's the one that wants to move on with her life."

I done took all I can take, but you leave me no options girl ... I can't deny how much I loved you / I done gave up everything I had too / As hard as it is I'm afraid I've gotta say, I'm ready to sign them papers."
