American singer, Usher and his estranged wife, Grace Miguel, have separated after two years of marriage.
The pair made a joint statement saying: “After much thoughts 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,” the statement reads.
But reports have emerged that the singer left his wife for another woman.
According to MediaTakeOut, Usher is now dating Amara La Negra, a Miami-born Dominican singer.
An insider explained, “Usher met Amara while she’s out here [in Los Angeles] filming The Real. I think they fell in love – it was quick. Next thing you know Usher is announcing that he’s leaving his wife.”
The source added, “I wouldn’t be surprised if Usher ends up [marrying] Amara because he’s known to move fast with relationships.”
