In a joint statement, Usher & his wife Grace Miguel have announced that after two years of marriage, the couple is separating.
“After much thought and consideration, we have mutually decided to separate as a couple. We remain deeply connected, loving friends who will continue supporting each other through the next phases of our lives,” they confirm in the statement. “The enormous amount of love and respect that we have for each other will only increase as we move forward.”
Grace Miguel is also Usher’s manager.
It hasn’t been a smooth year for the singer, as last summer he was sued by a woman for allegedly transmitting herpes during unprotected sex. That lawsuit was dismissed. Then court documents were filed by a celebrity stylist, revealing he paid her $1.1 million after she claimed she contracted herpes from him as well.
The couple have no children together, however Usher is Dad to 2 children from his previous marriage.
