In a recent interview with Billboard.com, R&B singer Usher Raymond opened up about the current love of his life Grace Miguel, his friendship with Diddy and his new album.
Usher opened about his long time girlfriend Grace Miguel saying:
“I have an incredible partner and manager. She has helped me through some of the hardest times in my life and my career.
She’s someone who has been able to support and understand all of who I am. Not just as a dancer or as a performer or as a singer, but as a humanitarian and a businessman and as a person.
One thing that has come from having a great partner like Grace is being able to cherish the places that I’ve gone,” he says. “We see the monumental sites, go to the museums, eat in the best restaurants. I’m that guy now! In the past I’d do what I have to do and get on the bus to the next city. Life has become a vacation.”
Prior to dating girlfriend Grace Miguel, Usher was dating former TLC member Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas back in 2001.
Their relationship lasted for two years: they broke up in December 2003, followed by a media frenzy surrounding the personal nature of Usher’s fourth album, Confessions. His fans inferred the reason he and Thomas split is due to infidelity on his part, giving allusions to the lyrics of the songs. In an interview on The Bert Show on the Atlanta radio channel Q100 in February 2004, Thomas claimed that Usher cheated on her.
In November 2005, Usher began dating stylist Tameka Foster, who had worked as his personal stylist for several years.
The two were wed on August 3rd, 2007, in a civil ceremony in Atlanta. This was followed by a larger wedding ceremony on September 1, 2007, held at the Chateau Elan Winery & Resort outside Atlanta.
Usher filed for divorce from Foster in June 2009 in Atlanta. The divorce was legally finalized in Fulton County Court on November 4, 2009
