Usher and his wife Grace Miguel have separated after being together for almost ten years.

The former couple started dating in 2009 and married in 2015.

They have released a statement together which reads: “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.”

A source tells Us Weekly that the pair have been separated for a couple of months now. According to TMZ, the news of their separation comes on the heels of multiple allegations and lawsuits claiming that Usher has given a number of people herpes.

This is Usher's second marriage. He has two children named Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely with his first wife, Tameka Foster.
