R 'n' B singer Usher has revealed that he has fetish for shoes and that he has collected over 10,000 pairs over the years.

The star admits he knows his footwear addiction is "ridiculous" but can't stop himself from splurging out on new pairs, reports gossip.ie.

"I even ask myself, 'Are you serious?' It's ridiculous. I go from Timberlands and Hi-Tec to Balenciaga and Lanvin. I have someone going to pick up the new red Nike Jordans for me right now," he said.

The 30-year-old also has an addiction to unusual watches.

"I own about 80 watches. I travel with at least four. They're not all high-end... They range from Cartier and Rolex to Seiko and G-Shock. It's about what suits me at that moment. I also have hundreds of suits. Designer Tom Ford fits me really well," he said.

The singer is in the process of divorcing his estranged wife Tameka Foster with whom he has two sons.
