Usher has officially pulled the plug on his marriage to Grace Miguel. More inside...
Well, we knew this was coming.
Usher has reportedly filed for divorce from his estranged wife/former manager Grace Miguel after 3 years of marriage (10 total years of them together). He trekked it to the courthouse today (December 28th) in Georgia to file the paperwork, according to The Blast. At least he waited a few days after Christmas.
It's reported the Grammy Award winner will be using the same attorney he hired for his custody battle with his ex-wife Tameka Foster. Because, why not.
The divorce writing was on the wall. Back in March, Usher and Grace issued a statement revealing they were calling it quits and that it was a "mutual" separation after secretly jumping the broom in 2015.
The documents name their date of separation as December 24, 2017. Sheesh. Christmas Eve though?!
“After much thought and consideration we have mutually decided to separate as a couple," the statement read. "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.”
Over the past two years, Usher has been accused by multiple women (and at least one man) of having unprotected sex with them while allegedly knowingly having the Herpes disease. Lawsuits were filed, some were dropped... it was just a big old mess. At first, it appeared Grace was going to be his "ride or die," but it looks that's no longer the case.
They didn't have any children together, so custody won't be an issue. Was a pre-nup signed? That's unclear. However, TMZ reports the couple has reached a confidential settlement agreement, so they're just waiting on a judge to sign off on it.
New year, new life.
