Usher & Wife Grace Miguel Announce Divorce After Two Years Of Marriage Amid Multiple Herpes Lawsuits — Read Their Statement
Usher and his wife Grace Miguel have announced they are separating after just over two years of marriage. Did the couple call it quits over Usher's herpes scandal and multiple lawsuits against him?

The couple announced their split in a statement to the media. "After much thought and consideration we have mutually decided to separate as a couple," the couple 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."

The couple have actually been quietly separated for several months, according to a source.

Usher married Grace, who is also his manager, in September 2015 in Cuba following an eight month engagement and six years of dating.


This was the second marriage for Usher, who was previously married to Tameka Foster. The singer and Tameka have sons Usher Raymond V, 10, and Naviyd Ely, nine, together.

Grace is the mother to a daughter Leaf and son named Raiden from a previous relationship. 

An insider revealed that the pair have had marital problems for years. The source stated, "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."

The insider also claimed the lawsuits against Usher that accused him of giving people herpes was the straw that broke the camel's back.

The source said, "The [herpes lawsuit] drove them further apart and created a divide between them that was impossible to fix. After the suit, all trust and intimacy [were] gone making it impossible to recover, they could not go on as a married couple."


Usher was hit with multiple lawsuits this past year, which claim he passed on or exposed herpes to several people.  One of those women slept with the singer while he was married to Grace.

In November, a Georgia woman who had accused Usher of exposing her to herpes dropped her $20 million lawsuit against him.  


Laura Helm was caught in an audio recording of her phone call, telling the person on the other end that she only ever had safe sex with Usher. That obviously contradicted her earlier claims.

Helm's lawyer withdrew from the case and a new attorney she hired had the lawsuit immediately dismissed without prejudice "with intent to refile." 

Another woman named Quantasia Sharpton filed a lawsuit against the "Love in This Club" singer, claiming the singer exposed her to herpes.

She claimed she hooked up with the singer following on of his concerts on her birthday. 


In September, reports surfaced that a man is suing Usher for exposing him to herpes. He claimed he had sex with the singer at a spa in downtown Los Angeles.

Usher, through his legal team, has denied all the accusations against him, claiming that he never had sex with any of his accusers.


The singer's lawyers argued that even if he had sexual relations with his accusers, he did so without the knowledge that he had a transmittable disease.
