"Do not come on my page discussing rumors or adult people that have NOTHING to do with me," Foster wrote on Instagram. "I have been divorced 8 years... Some issues are not my business... ex husbands, ex friends, bitch-maids, snakes, hoes, characters, etc. Not my circus, not my clowns ... I'm good and my health (Everywhere is great??), well my right knee hurts and I need reading glasses but otherwise I'm awesome and enjoying the sun. ?Miss me with other grown folks crazy gossip.. Not my business at all. I'm living my bestest life. Always. Miss me with the bullshit. Thank you."

When someone commented on her Insta page with "I guess Usher's ex Chilli should be the 1 to post this," Foster quickly clapped back with, "B**ch bye. She was never my friend and never his wife. Please don't confuse the two." Chilli and Usher broke up in 2003.
