Usher ‘secretly weds longtime partner’
R&B singer Usher reportedly tied the knot in secret with Grace Miguel.
The 36-year-old Burn hitmaker became engaged to the music industry professional in January.
And sources have confirmed to Us Weekly magazine the couple tied the knot in secret over America’s Labor Day Weekend (5-7Sept15).
It’s claimed they were initially planning an elaborate ceremony which would have seen them exchanging vows in front of 100 loved ones, but the pair supposedly decided to elope instead.
A week after tying the knot, Usher and Grace enjoyed their honeymoon in Cuba. Bossip reports rapper Ludacris and other pals were on hand to celebrate with the newlyweds in the Caribbean nation.
The musician began dating his business partner Grace in 2009, following his split from former wife Tameka Foster.
Usher has been open about his adoration for Grace in the past, telling Billboard magazine in October 2014 how “incredible” she is.
"I have an incredible partner and manager," he gushed. "She has helped me through some of the hardest times in my life and my career. She’s someone who’s 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."
Usher also credited Grace with helping him become more excited about life.
“One thing that has come from having a great partner like Grace is being able to cherish the places that I’ve gone,” he said. “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.”
Usher has two sons, Naviyd Ely and Usher Raymond V, with his stylist ex Tameka, who he was married to from 2007 until 2009.
