While the marriage was reportedly on the rocks already, allegations of having herpes was the icing on the cake for this couple.
Usher and current wife Grace Miguel ended their marriage after nearly ten years of being together. The couple started that their reason of separations was because “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 close to Usher told Hollywoodlife.com 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. After the suit, all trust and intimacy was gone making it impossible to recover, 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.”
Grace reportedly had her suspicions after the allegations came about because, true or not, Usher had to be talking to other women. Trust issues began to rise in their relationship and drained the couple.
