Another Hollywood couple is headed to Splitsville: this time it’s Usher and Grace Miguel.
After being together for close to a decade and being married for two years, the couple has decided to call it quits. The split comes after the 39-year-old Grammy winner was slapped with multiple lawsuits for his alleged herpes scandal.
“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. The enormous amount of love and respect that we have for each other will only increase as we move forward,” reads the official statement.
Usher and his wife/manager, Grace Miguel, who quietly got married in September 2015, have apparently been separated for some time now. “Usher and Grace have been living separate lives for a long time. He works a lot and travels a ton too so they had been struggling with intimacy issues for years. But the herpes lawsuit was the nail in the coffin. The suit drove them further apart and created a divide between them that was impossible to fix,” an insider told Hollywood Life.
The Grammy winner was previously married to Tameka Foster, whom they have two children together: 10-year-old son Usher Raymond V and 9-year-old son Naviyd Ely.
