It was a big week for Usher. Not only did he take center field for the Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show, but he also took the plunge with his longtime girlfriend.
The singer, whose full name is Usher Raymond IV, and his girlfriend, Jennifer Goicoechea, got a marriage license on Feb. 8 in Clark County, Nevada. Clark County is where Las Vegas is located.
Update 7:15 a.m. ET Feb. 13: A search of Clark County marriage records confirmed that the singer and Goicoechea were married on Super Bowl Sunday.
Usher’s representative told the publication, “We can confirm that Usher and Jennifer Goicoechea took the next step in their relationship and did get married on Sunday night in Las Vegas surrounded by close friends and family,” adding, “They both look forward to continuing to raise their children together surrounded by love and thank everyone for the well wishes.”
After the wedding, the newlyweds hosted a dinner and party at Cathédrale, with the singer telling Vogue, “It was important to me that I celebrated this personal milestone moment with family. I’m bringing my music back to my roots in Atlanta, where I’ll be celebrating the release of my new album, Coming Home, alongside Rémy Martin which has grown to feel like family.”
Goicoechea was dressed in a white pantsuit while Usher wore a long white fur coat.
Original story: A search of county records shows that the couple obtained a license but a certificate had not been filed as of Monday morning. The county clerk’s website says, “Marriage Officiants have ten(10) calendar days by law to deliver Marriage Certificates to our office for filing.”
TMZ reported that the license is good for a year.
The couple’s relationship was first made public when they attended the 40th birthday party of Keith Thomas in June 2019, People reported.
They have two children together, daughter Sovereign Bo, born in 2020, and son Sire Castrello, born in 2021.
He also has two sons — Usher V and Naviyd Ely — with ex-wife Tameka Foster. Usher and Foster got divorced in 2009. He was also married to Grace Miguel, but got divorced in 2018, Entertainment Weekly reported.
The publication pointed out that the singer kept his left hand covered with gloves during his Super Bowl halftime performance.
In addition to the marriage license and the Super Bowl show, Usher also dropped his 9th studio album, “Coming Home” last week. He also wrapped up his “My Way Las Vegas” residency in December.
