Usher is tying up some personal matters, just before the new year rolls around. The 40-year-old singer filed for divorce from his estranged wife and former manager, Grace Miguel, Friday (Dec. 28), according to The Blast.
The exes already worked out a divorce settlement and are awaiting a judge’s signature on the legal documents, TMZ reports.
The divorce papers were filed in Usher’s home state of Georgia, and lists their separation date as December 2017. Earlier that year, reports first began to surface of Usher allegedly infecting sexual partners with herpes (Usher planned to sue at least one of the accusers, denied the accusations and sought to have one lawsuit dismissed over the summer).
Miguel and Usher announced their split in March with a joint statement. “After much thought and consideration we have mutually decided to separate as a couple,” the pair said, adding that they remain “deeply connected, loving friends who will continue supporting each other through the next phases of our lives.”
The R&B star began dating Miguel sometime in 2009, after splitting from his first wife, Tameka Foster. Usher and Foster married in 2007, and finalized their divorce two years later. They share two sons, 11-year-old Usher V, and 10-year-old Naviyd.
The Grammy winner is reportedly using the same lawyer for his latest divorce that he used in his custody battle with Foster.
