Usher Raymond and his wife, Grace Miguel, have separated after two years of marriage and nearly 10 years together.
“After much thought and consideration, we have mutually decided to separate as a couple,” Usher, 36, and Miguel, 48, said in a joint statement. “We remain deeply connected, loving friends who will continue supporting each other through the next phases of our lives. The enormous amount of love and respect that we have for each other will only increase as we move forward.”
According to reports, the couple, who quietly wed in September 2015, have been separated for a couple of months.
They started dating in 2009 after Usher split from his first wife, Tameka Foster, with whom he shares 10-year-old son Usher Raymond V and 9-year-old son Naviyd Ely. Usher proposed to Miguel in January 2015.
The circumstances surrounding the shocking split of the couple is still shrewd but close sources are saying Usher’s herpes scandal was the ‘ final nail in the coffin’ in his marriage to Grace.
In July of 2017, an old court documents surfaced claiming Usher had allegedly infected a woman with herpes back in 2012 and paid her $1.1 million for settlement.
Not long after that, three more women came out with claims that they had unprotected sex with him after that date and were not informed of his alleged STD predicament.
All these could have been too much for Grace to take, as the couple began dating in 2009 and got married in 2015, and could have only meant the singer cheated on her severally at the time.
