Usher the 36 year-old singer (born User Raymond IV) decided to marry his manager and long time girlfriend, Grace Miguel, (The two had been dating for more than 5 years!!!) Usher did not respond to Yahoo’s request for a comment but Miguel has been photographed wearing a piece of bling- bling on her ring finger.
“They are extremely happy and the way it was done was very sweet and romantic,” an insider told E!, adding that the proposal happened a week and a half ago. “He can’t wait to spend the rest of his life with her. His boys love her as well! She gets along with them great.”
Usher has primary custody of the two sons, 7-year-old Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Eli, 6, he shares with ex-wife Tameka Foster. He and Foster were married from 2007 to 2009, when they began an ugly divorce and custody battle.
Miguel — who’s eight years older than her groom-to-be — has worked with Usher for three years, according to an October profile in Billboard.
“I have an incredible partner and manager,” Usher said of Miguel. “She has helped me through some of the hardest times in my life and my career.”
In the same story, Usher explained exactly what it is he loves about his woman, a departure from his usual policy of keeping the relationship private.
“She’s someone who has been able to support and understand all of who I am. Not just as a dancer or as a performer or as a singer, but as a humanitarian and a businessman and as a person,” he said. “One thing that has come from having a great partner like Grace is being able to cherish the places that I’ve gone. We see the monumental sites, go to the museums, eat in the best restaurants. I’m that guy now! In the past I’d do what I have to do and get on the bus to the next city. Life has become a vacation.”
