Usher’s Wife Grace Miguel Officially Files For Divorce One Month After Couple’s Split
Let It Burn?

Grace Miguel has officially filed for divorce from R&B singer, Usher, a month after they announced their separation. The couple's split after two years of marriage came on the heels of Usher being sued for allegedly exposing multiple people to herpes.

Grace, who is also Usher's manager, filed legal documents to end her marriage to "The Voice" coach on Tuesday. She cited the standard 'irreconcilable differences' as the reason for their split.

Usher and Grace announced their separation back in March with a joint statement, after being together for a decade and two years of marriage. 

The pair stated, "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."

The couple, who share no children together, were rumored to have quietly separated months before they finally made the announcement.

The two started dating in 2009, shortly after the "Let It Burn" singer split from his first wife, Tameka Foster. Foster and Usher have two sons together from their marriage - 10-year-old Usher Raymond V, and 9-year-old Naviyd Ely.

Usher proposed to Miguel in January 2015 and the they eloped that same year, spending their honeymoon in Cuba.

Fans had wondered if Usher's marriage could survive the herpes lawsuit and cheating scandal. However, even their closet friends admitted they didn't see the split coming

Sources close to the couple told TMZ that Usher and Miguel enjoyed a date night at the movies in Los Angeles in March, right before announcing their separation. The pair brought Usher's children to see "Black Panther" and they appeared to be having a good time. 

The divorce filing comes almost a year after reports surfaced that Usher had settled a $1.1 million lawsuit with a woman in 2012, who had accused him of infecting her with herpes. 

The court documents show Usher was "exposed to herpes" in 2009 or 2010 and went on to have unprotected sex with partners without telling them he had the STD.

Other people soon came forward to claim Usher infected them with herpes, along with one man. 

Laura Helm sued the singer for $20 million in July.

In September, court documents showed that a male plaintiff identified as John Doe joined the lawsuit against Usher.

The man reportedly accused the singer of giving him herpes when they hooked up at a Koreatown spa.  

Quantasia Sharpton and another accuser identified as Jane Doe also joined that lawsuit, and filed a motion to force Usher to take an STD test.

Usher accuser Laura Helm's credibility was questioned after she was caught lying in a taped phone conversation. Her attorney, Lisa West, filed a motion in October to drop her client.

She explained that she couldn't "effectively represent" Helm.
