Ruben Studdard's marriage has hit a low note.

The second season American Idol winner, 33, and his wife of three years, Surata Zuri McCants, have called it quits, according to reports.

The couple, who cite "irreconcilable differences" as reason for the split, wed in 2008 in Studdard's Birmingham, Ala., hometown with 20 groomsmen by his side.

"Ruben and Zuri have gone their separate ways," the crooner's rep Jocelyn R. Coleman tells E! News

The two met in October 2006, when Studdard was signing CDs at an Atlanta Walmart. Attracted to McCants, the singer followed her to the store's toy department and requested her phone number.
