American Idol alum Ruben Studdard and his wife, 34-year-old Surata Zuri McCants, have decided to call it quits. The couple is reportedly filing for divorce.

They met in 2006 while Ruben was signing CDs on a press junket (he even followed her into another aisle to ask for her digits!). They later married in 2008 in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama.

The 33-year-old singer signed divorce documents citing “irreconcilable differences.” And a rep from Ruben’s camp says, “Ruben and Zuri have gone their separate ways.”

Poor Velvet Teddy Bear.
