All the cheating rumors combined with a massive STD scandal were just too much for Usher’s marriage to Grace Miguel. They were married for two years, and they have been together for almost ten.
Unfortunately, the couple announced yesterday, March 6, that they decided to separate. Here’s what they said:
‘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.’
It’s very sad that besides this enormous love between them, there was also a considerable quantity of drama that eventually caused this marriage to fail.
A source close to Usher discussed things with the online magazine Hollywood Life and said that ‘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.’
The same insider continued and stated that ‘After the suit, all the trust and intimacy was gone making it impossible to recover, and they could not go on as a married couple. Despite all the love she will always have for him, Grace was getting sick of the daily questions from friends and family about Usher‘s shortcomings.’
The nightmare’s peak was back in 2017 in July when some old court documents surfaced saying that Usher allegedly infected a woman with herpes back in 2012.
He also allegedly paid her $1.1 million for a settlement. Then there were more individuals who came forward with the same accusations for the singer.
If those accusations were true, this would mean that he cheated on his wife multiple times. She could never look at him the same way as she did before this massive scandal and it’s totally understandable.
