Well other one bites the dust! Despite publicly standing with him last summer when all those herpes lawsuits were coming back to back, The “My Boo” singer, 36, announced Tuesday that he and his wife of two years, record exec Grace Miguel have officially “Tapped Out” and have split.
Usher released a statement Tuesday, saying, “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.”
Usher and Miguel, 48, were engaged in January 2015, and eloped eight months later.
“I have an incredible partner and manager (in Grace),” Usher said of his then Boo Thang in 2014. “She has helped me through some of the hardest times in my life and my career, Live has become a vacation.” Clearly that vacation is long over as the pair has been separated for several months so sadly, Tuesday’s announcement was a long time coming.
They started dating in 2009, shortly after the singer split from his first wife Tameka Foster.
An Instagram post last week indicated the “Yeah!” singer may already be moving on with his life; the caption implied he was moving toward a “new era.” Maybe that’s why he just got a under the chin/neck tattoo:
Usher has not explained the meaning or the design of his new neck tattoo……but I’m sure he will at some point.
Usher’s personal life has been put through the wringer in recent months as the star faces multiple lawsuits alleging he knowingly exposed several sexual partners to herpes. He has denied all accusations.
Grace seemed to be standing by her man back in November, blowing off the legal drama stating her and the R&B crooner were unbothered by Usher’s many herpes accusers, stating she and her husband were “living their lives.” Oh well ladies, if you don’t mind constant blister patrols (allegedly), get on your mark, get set and GO….Usher is back on the market!
