Grace Raymond

Usher's loyal wife, Grace Raymond, 48, was spotted arriving at LAX Airport. She was asked to comment on her husband's four accusers -- 2 of whom have not come forward to identify themselves or file any paperwork in court.

Coincidentally, she was on the phone with the R&B crooner when TMZ's photog approached her.

As you know, Usher's Georgia accuser, Laura Michelle Helm, filed a $20 million lawsuit in July alleging Usher, 39, infected her with the herpes virus during intimate encounters in April.

Usher admitted having sex with Helm outside of his marriage, but he denied infecting her with herpes.

Helm, 32, is urgently searching for a new lawyer after her Atlanta attorney Lisa West abruptly quit the case last month.

See what Grace had to say about Usher's accusers below.

    Very lax attitude about infidelity and STD's, not that herpes is the end of the world but you would folk would take better care in that instance not be reckless and indiscriminate.

  • Nina Ross

    So is she out here infecting people too?

  • hottlanta

    Someone said George Bush touched them inappropriately years ago. All folks are quietly waiting on now is for someone to say Obama.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Was it Condoleeza Rice?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Ummm I mean she didn't say anything. I wouldn't expect her to say anything though. I mean your husband has been outed as carrying AND knowingly transmitting a STD.

  • Banka

    Or these women could be lying...

  • brownisback

    I think it's up to 6 people accusing him now

  • Shawty

    She had the option to tell him to put on a condom if she saw he was trying to go there without one. She is just as responsible for the unprotected sex as him. Most likely she was trying to trap him with a pregnancy for her come up, but since he didn't get her knocked up she's trying a different avenue. She should get NOTHING!!!! She was just as negligent. And how do we know she didn't give it to him. ijs

  • Bashi22

    I like Grace she’s not all up on Usher thirsty to be a celebrity she plays her role in the back ground as a wife. Tameka you try but you have the two boys so you forever win with the procreation of them and first wife status

  • hottlanta

    Wow the list is growing and it is only Monday.

  • hottlanta

    I know right.

  • Berry Melon

    Quickly does research. Okay apparently she's a jazz singer. This exciting young singer/songwriter has fiercely maintained her music style with a creative vision. Laura Michelle is an accomplished vocalist, songwriter, dancer, actress and model and has transformed into a multifaceted Artist . This New Orleans own, “Southern Sensation” knew early on that she was pre-destined to be a professional entertainer. Her love of the arts translates into her music. Her desire for fashion and flair is incorporated into her costumes which are all created by Laura Michelle through her “LaMiche” line. Laura Michelle is gaining notoriety through her music, fashion, and dynamic performances. She gained artistic exposure in New Orleans, from singing in choirs to her involvement in productions such as Ray, and The Nutcracker, as well as commercials. She recorded her first song when she was 14 years old. The Devastation of Hurricane Katrina, tore her foundation from beneath her, however Laura Michelle continued her fight for her dream relocating to Atlanta. While in Atlanta, she furthered her development and career in one of the most influential artist development centers in the country. There she worked six days a week for 3 consecutive years where she established her authentic identity as an artist. She also unleashed her first EPK, with her self penned records such as “Never Be” and “Dance the Night the Away”. For her – And the world – The wait is over.

    Hmm.. me thinks she wants the publicity and $$$.

  • I Run New York

    Then he would be suing them for defamation or he would have released a statement saying he doesn't have herpes. Clearly he does.

  • I Run New York

    You can get herpes with or without a condom.

  • hottlanta

    How can a twice married/twice divorced woman to 2 different men claim first wife status as bragging rights with a fist pump in the air? Marriage was never meant as a numbering system as to have status over someone else as if someone won the grand prize.

  • Ryan

    I wonder if Usher draws his old lady a nice hot Epsom salt bath when she gets home to soak dem bones.

  • bemetoo

    Okay grace

  • Pamela

    Ageist much?

  • KcoolMuziq

    No she doesn't. Usher won full custody of BOTH boys.So she gets NO child support. She does have visitation tho.


  • free

    she looked a lil younger on this video. grace be looking anywhere from 30-50 on any given day.

  • free

    all that but we only know her cause she said she got green herpes from ursh.

  • free

    grace can get her some 'vitro if she wanted to but i guess she cool.

  • free

    i thought it was determined that he didn't have it after the fat chick's lawsuit. i guess i'm getting it all confused.

  • Bashi22

    Yes understand that he won Full Custody however she’s still the women that help procreat them.on her Instagram she’s still in their lives. Just like her older son that she’s at all his university football games.

  • Bashi22

    I meant to say she’s is the first wife for Usher on the records it won’t change she still his first wife of Usher along with her procreating two offsprings with Usher all boys. Looks like Tameka as only boys eggs ?

  • KcoolMuziq

    I said she still has visitation rights.

    Btw she makes beautiful babies.

  • Desiree Edwards

    LOVE U FOR THIS! hahahah

  • hottlanta

    Short sentences make the best statements.

  • hottlanta

    Grace is staying in the background counting them coins. She ain't off to the numbering system wife races competing with anybody.

  • Shawty

    Understood, but what I was getting at is she's at risk for ANYTHING having unprotected sex. Who does that now a days unless you trying to pass something off. Most of us scared of what another may have, so it seems kinda fishy to me.

  • BlahBlahBlah

    You dove all deep, trollin pages lol

  • Scromes1212

    Awkward lol she looks very good for 48

  • NicoleZee

    Well, she said "People are people". Well, vaginas are vaginas. I wouldn't want nasty sores in mine or smelling like an underwater fish market. No thanks! These men can keep their diseased peckers. Gross!

  • NicoleZee

    Condoms don't protect against herpes or bacterial infections. Skin to skin contact is the problem. And you can get a lot of infections by touching surfaces. Bacteria are everywhere and herpes is easily spread.

  • Anonymouse

    Instead of trolling Instagram, you ought to be studying biology. Sperm determine the gender of children.... smh

  • NeverSurprised

    Don’t forget the MAN.

  • JustB

    At her age she should know how to conduct herself and probably advised her husband to not comment either... regardless people are going to believe what they want... besides shes the only one bound to sleeping with him till the end anyways

  • Guess Who

    But has he ever flat out denied he had herpes? Present any doctor reports?

  • dontgetblocked

    She can have him.

  • more


  • Guest4shade

    Why don’t she tell about the prescriptions she picks up from CVS?

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Grace seems very unbothered, and knew what she signed up for before she married him. Who knows why any woman stays with a serial cheater, maybe because most of the men they've been with or around have cheated on them or other women they know.

    Grace is low-key and maybe the good outweighs the bad for her, the life they share, the kids involved, it's a lot to walk away from!

    Pauletta didn't leave Denzel, and Hillary stayed with Bill, Beyoncé and Jayz are still together, Halle is called crazy because she bounces, or women are told to get a man if they critique bad romances or dissed because they don't stay in bad relationships or lower their standards to live the ideal or often a lie!

  • KA

    I like Grace. When she said “people are people” she was talking about Usher too. As his manager she knew what he was and what he was into, and she accepted it and married him anyway. At least she’s not trying to play victim after the fact like Tameka did.

  • NicoleZee

    The chemicals alone that they put in condoms can cause people to get infections, so it's no wonder why condoms cannot protect against every single disease out there. I guess if condoms had more chemicals that might protect against herpes and bacteria, no one would be able to use them if the chemicals are too strong maybe. Hell if I know. People need to just be careful. Knowing and not knowing it two different things. If you KNOW someone sleeps around or if you KNOW someone has horrible hygiene, why lay down with them??? The hell???

  • NicoleZee

    A lot of people don't know that the male determines the sex of the child. Either they weren't paying attention in biology or maybe they don't know much about conception and childbirth.

  • NicoleZee

    Being single and healthy is better than being diseased and married! Gross. These men put their mouths and dicks in and on other women and then go home to their wives and do the same, so it's no surprise that all of these infections are being spread. The worst part is that a lot of people have STDs and don't know it because they either don't ever go to the doctor for testing or they ignore the symptoms if they do have any. How the f*ck can you have genitals that smell or have nasty discharge or genital sores and you don't see a doctor??? The hell???

  • Bashi22

    Crazy ?

  • Bashi22

    Like she should I would do the same

  • Ryan

    Bitter much?

  • Ryan

    Yeah you're right. Wonder why she fluctuates like that.

  • KB

    Reading your post has me HOLLERING imaging your facial & speedy fingers. ROFLMAO!

  • Faux Gibbler

    I will always think Usher is fine as hell.

  • MythCalledLove

    With all this sexual assault & harassment in the spotlight. It may not be exactly the same but her lawyers might try to get on the bandwagon. They might fall off the wagon but dammit these lawyers today ... Plus if he ", has it" then she might have it. And your prospect of men would be next to nothing.

  • MythCalledLove

    More like smart... Classy not so much. But keeping your damn mouth shut will help so you dont end up having to cut a check.

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    He never denies it. He has it. His legal team defense is/was for ol girl to prove she got it from him. He’s stalling. He’ll most likely settle out of court. He certainly doesn’t wanna have his deposition leaked, a huge can of worm.

  • Chuck

    Black women are fucking stupid and weak!

  • R in NYC

    I will never be the type of wife who turns a blind eye while my husband acts like he's single. That is unacceptable.
    Where is this woman's self esteem? Usher has admitted to constantly cheating on her and she wants to act like it doesn't faze her which is very fake. I doubt they even share the same bedroom.
    Usher still has his bachelor pad here in NYC. They must have an open marriage because this woman is looking all kinds of dumb.
    No amount of money and celebrity status is worth your soul.

  • R in NYC

    Okkkk....your first sentence said it all.
    I don't care who stays with their lying, cheating, sorry man. It's still wrong and isn't what God intended for you. I'm not accepting that b.s. for any reason. If I can control myself and not distribute my self then my husband better do the same!
    If you can't be faithful then don't get married period! Stay single and go get it in with the whole city.
    Most of the married men who cheat do it because they know they can and even if they get caught their wife won't leave.
    They have no fear of consequences because there are none for their bad behavior.

  • don juan

    You're a loser

  • NicoleZee

    Good for you! Don't settle and don't accept any shit from these losers. These men will always lie and cheat because they know that they can find a dumb woman that will put up with it and never leave them. Naw, I care too much about my health and sanity to stay. Whenever a man is lying or cheating or beating on me, I walk away, no regrets. My life matters, too bad if some women don't feel the same way about themselves. Sad, just sad!

  • justlooking

    Grace said,

    ????, ? ?????????? ???
    ???, ??'? ??????? ?? ??, just let it burn.

  • ShWa

    Color has nothing to do with being weak & stupid, do not bring race into this u sound stupid as hell......

  • ShWa

    He's trolling on here, nobody checking for him in life period probably, sounds bitter....

  • ShWa

    Yes, u get criticized no matter what u do, so do u boo.

  • ShWa

    Yep her husband, her marriage, people are quick to say what someone should do just worry about your husband and what youre gonna do when he cheats!

  • ShWa

    I can't believe people are on here arguing about Usher's 1st wife, and 2nd wife and his children and who's entitled to what, omg get a life so u won't have to be looking straight crazy on here beefing about his life....

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Why are black woman so accepting of cheating husbands? I feel so sorry for Grace. Black Women TOLERATE anything. YES. I just brought race into it. The black community is in a.state of emergency. Like for real.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    She knew what time it was from the beginning.

  • jayhawkpride

    You definitely shouldn't have bought race into it. Because cheating is universal!!

  • Tennessean

    I understand where you are coming from, I think. It is visibly shown in the AA community of accepting wives of cheating husbands. In other communities not so much.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    It happens in all walks of life and backgrounds....race included. Here recently it’s been a lot of African American celebrity couples and that’s only because married business becomes public business when they decide to air it out. Alot of times it’s the other woman or man that can’t keep thier mouth closed. See white people, they are paying these side pieces off something proper. Hence the reason we don’t hear about it as much....????

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    And what are you?

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    Either way people will be people (in grace’s voice) and still talk. So I guess the best thing to do is do you and keep it pushing.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    This I can agree with you’s just gross

  • Trace da Ace

    well my mama always told me that a man will do what you allow him to do....and if she accepts him being "community dick" then that is what he is going to be. Usher is still fine and all, but he is "community dick" and he raw thats a XXX in my book. no bueno. If Grace accepts it ($$) then that's on her.....sad, but true.


    Now when I see Usher gyrating in's like eeeeeewww. He no longer looks appealing, at least to me. When you don't know a person is burning that's one thing, but when you do, it's another.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    You are absolutely right about cheating being universal. However, I am referring to the "acceptance" of cheating among black women.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I agree about the health concerns, and being single or at least trying to be in a monogamous relationship should be the goal, and a deal-breaker when it's not honored, but it's not for many!

    And, of course, Blacks have higher rates of STDS like Herpes and AIDS than any other group because of not using protection and not having early detection!

    People often know they have something, and simply don't want to deal with it, so they don't go and see about themselves, IMO!

    What we take for granted is mind-boggling!

  • Yo mamas lil sister

    I agree. But do you know how many heauxs (sp intentional) will allow him to infect them with herpes for much less than 1 million. Some just want a payday and a lil 15 mins of fame. . Walking round looking like crusty the clown. They will be like "Yeah n---- infected me what that shit but I can rest my bumpy ass in this BMW!. SMh.. sickos but yeah hey was sexy af to me ... now he looks like an ODB

  • Yo mamas lil sister

    Usher and Ray J always looked "fuckkkkable" ready to hit anything that will allow them.
