Following separation, Usher files for divorce from wife

Entertainers in Missouri and all over the country aren't alone in experiencing marital stresses and strains that can lead to the end of a marriage. Case in point: Usher and his estranged wife. The singer, songwriter and actor is divorcing from his wife several months after the couple announced their separation. After six years of dating, Usher married the woman who had previously worked as his manager in 2015.

The singer dealt with previous family law matters of this nature when he divorced his previous wife. While that legal battle involved a custody dispute, Usher's most recent marriage produced no children although the singer is reportedly using the same attorney for this case. The couple legally separated in December 2017 but formerly announced it to the public in March 2018 by saying that they remained "deeply connected" to one another.

The joint statement announcing the separation came after the singer was involved with a series of lawsuits. Numerous people accused the singer of knowingly infecting them with herpes, a common and long-term sexually transmitted disease. Usher contends such allegations are untrue. He insists he never intentionally caused any harm to any of the individuals making allegations. The singer further contends the plaintiffs willingly "assumed the risk" when they opted to have sexual relations with him. One $20 million herpes lawsuit against the singer has since been dismissed. A specific reason for the separation and subsequent divorce has not been given.

Regardless of the circumstances involved, it's likely that Usher and his soon-to-be-ex-wife will have a high-asset divorce due to his position as an entertainer with a long string of musical and acting credits. With divorces like this, a family law attorney often makes an attempt to fairly split assets accumulated during the marriage, which may include jointly owned vehicles and homes. It's not known whether the couple had a prenuptial agreement. However, with marriages involving significant assets, it's not unusual for an attorney to recommend having a such a document on file to minimize financial losses should a divorce occur.
