R&B crooner Usher Raymond and his longtime girlfriend, industry veteran Grace Miguel, are ready to tie the knot. The two have dated steadily since 2009. Friends say Grace rescued Usher from an unhappy 2-year marriage to former celebrity stylist Tameka Raymond.
R&B crooner Usher and his longtime girlfriend Grace Miguel, who handles his business affairs, were seen leaving a meeting at Live Nation Entertainment in Beverly Hills today. When Grace spotted the cameras she sprinted ahead of Usher, who smiled when she took off running. Usher and Grace drove off in a fully loaded, customized 4-door Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, MSRP $31,000.

Usher Raymond‘s ex-wife, Tameka Raymond, is blaming their divorce on a secret trip she took to Brazil for a lipo procedure back in 2009. Tameka almost died on the operating table after she went into cardiac arrest.
In an interview to promote her reality TV series, Hollywood Exes: Atlanta, Tameka said, “I did dumb stuff. I mean, I went to Brazil and tried to get lipo and almost died. I think that embarrassed him to like, “Oh no. I’m packing. She’s a nut.”
Of course, we know the truth. Usher’s bags were packed long before that.
Longtime lovers Usher Raymond and Grace Miguel posed for a selfie in Panama yesterday. Grace, who is in her late 40s, left her husband for the 35-year-old singer — who promptly divorced his wife, Tameka Raymond.
Usher is busy shooting scenes in Panama for his role as Sugar Ray Leonard in the upcoming Roberto Duran biopic Hands of Stone, starring Robert De Niro, Ellen Barkin and Jurnee Smollet Bell. There are rumors of personality clashes and Diva-like behavior on the set that has disrupted the shooting schedule. The movie project, which has been in production since 2010, started filming in October 2013. A U.S. release date has not been set.
R&B crooner Usher Raymond and his older girlfriend, Grace Miguel, were seen arriving at their Hotel in NYC on Saturday, July 3. Yesterday I told you that Usher cut $550K off the $3.2 million asking price of his ex-wife Tameka Raymond’s Roswell mansion in order to sell it quickly. The rumor is that Usher grew tired of Grace nagging him about paying the high maintenance fees on Tameka’s 12,000 sq. ft. mansion, which is almost twice the size of Usher’s modest 7,000 sq. ft. abode in nearby Johns Creek, GA (formerly Alpharetta). Sources close to Usher’s camp say Grace nags the 34-year-old father-of-2 constantly. One source told me, “She acts like she’s his mother.”

It looks like Usher Raymond has moved in his lifelong search for a romantic mother figure. Last week, Usher vacationed in Cancun with a brown skinned beauty who is not his longtime girlfriend, Grace Miguel.
