On October 14, 1978, Usher Raymond IV was born. Usher’s mother Jonetta and father Usher Raymond II recognized his singing potential at a young age when he was born in Texas but reared in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

To aid in the development of Usher’s music career, the family relocated to Atlanta, where Usher began professional recording and guest vocal appearances. North Springs High School was his alma mater.

Who is Usher Dating?
Jennifer Goicoechea, a music business professional, is the 42-year-current old’s girlfriend. She is the director of ASCAP’s rhythm and soul section, a non-profit organization that seeks to defend the musical copyrights of its members.
After being seen together at a birthday party for record producer Keith Thomas in June 2019, rumors about the brunette beauty and the “Yeah!” singer began to circulate. However, a photo of Jennifer kissing Usher’s cheek on Instagram in October 2019 sealed their relationship.

Is Usher’s herpes case finally over?
In July 2017, court records from a 2012 lawsuit alleging that the dancer had infected a sexual partner with the herpes virus were released online. According to the records, Usher persuaded the anonymous lady to engage in unprotected s*x after pretending that her STD test result was negative.
He allegedly settled for $1.1 million, but the news sparked a slew of new claims. Laura Helm, who claimed to have had sexual relations with Usher in April 2017, requested $10 million in damages, claiming she would not have slept with him if she had known he was a herpes virus carrier. Later, she raised the figure to $20 million.
In May 2019, TMZ reported that Helm had dismissed the case after the two parties reached an “amicable arrangement.” The specifics of a potential settlement have yet to be revealed.
The STD issue occurred barely seven months before Usher and Grace announced their divorce, however, neither of them ever stated that the legal battles had a role in their parting. “We have jointly chosen to separate as a relationship after much thought and consideration,” the couple said at the time.
“We are still emotionally attached, loving friends who will continue to support one another as we move forward in our lives. As time goes on, the huge amount of love and respect we have for each other will only grow.”
After six years of dating, the couple married in September 2015. Usher’s romance with Tameka Foster ended in 2009, and they began dating soon after. With his first wife, Usher “Cinco” Raymond V and Naviyd Ely Raymond, the Grammy winner has two sons.
In a 2010 VH1 documentary, Usher remarked about his children, “They make me want to wake up and live.” “I have a deeper purpose than just accumulating cash and gaining recognition,” she says.
Jennifer, Usher’s girlfriend, gave birth to their first kid together.
Usher and Jennifer announced the birth of their daughter on September 30, 2020. “With the arrival of our beautiful baby girl, Sovereign Bo Raymond, we are feeling blessed and full of love. I’m listening to Stevie Wonder’s ‘Isn’t She Lovely’ on repeat “An Instagram photo of the newborn’s little hand grabbing his finger was captioned by the pleased father.
