They say “Three times a charm”. And that’s the number of children Usher Raymond has now. Yes, he is now a father of three. He and Jenn Goicoechea share a beautiful baby girl together. Usher took to his Instagram on Wednesday to share the good news,”We are feeling blessed and full of love with the arrival of our beautiful baby girl Sovereign Bo Raymond”, alongside a picture of the baby’s finger wrapped around his.
Usher got a divorce from his second wife, Grace Miguel two years ago. But he was married to Tamke Foster first, whom he shares a son with. The pair married in 2007, after splitting from his ‘mom-a-ger’ that same year. However, not only did Usher and his mom disagree on the business side of things, Usher’s mom didn’t give her blessing for the nuptials between her son and Tameka Foster. The ‘U Got It Bad’ hitmaker was so bothered by that he pushed the initial wedding date to later that year.
The couple tied the knot at the luxurious Chateau Elan Winery & Resort, Atlanta, in a private ceremony catered to their 200 guests, including Gayle King and Benny Medina.
Usher And Tameka Didn’t Last
Sadly, after two years and three months, the couple divorced in 2009. The catalyst to the breakup ultimately was the tragic death of Tameka’s 11 year old son. Usher loved his step son as his own, but it seems the couple just couldn’t be there for one another as needed. Their son was taken off life support after a long battle. The situation was beyond heartbreaking and shocking. Fans were horrified.
Moving Onto Wife #2
In 2009, Usher began dating his manager, and mother of two; Grace Miguel. The ‘Let It Burn’ singer proposed in January 2015. And by September they were married in a private ceremony in Cuba.
The Herpes Scandal Would End Usher’s Second Marriage
There was also some physical altercations that took place between Usher’s first wife, Tamkea Foster and Grace. In a court document, Tameka admitted that Usher was trying to pull her off of her. While Usher testified that Tameka spit at his [then girlfriend] Grace Miguel. Adding that Tameka ‘took a swing’ at him when he and Grace showed up to drop the kids off. Per MyFox, a psychologist also testified on Usher’s behalf that Foster had a “moderately severe mental disorder.”
However, his second divorce wasn’t all on Tameka. Usher got caught up in a scandal, where a woman accused him of giving her an STD. He came out the pocket $1mil in a settlement. Next thing you know, his wife chucked the deuces and bounced.
Back in April 2018, two women and a man accused Usher of having sexual relationships with them without mentioning that he had herpes, which resulted in them contracting the virus.
