Did Usher get engaged? The popular vegan singer who also has served as a coach on The Voice and mentored Justin Bieber is a maestro of multi-tasking. Now sources say that he’s managed to find time for romance to Grace Miguel and has become engaged, reported Us Weekly.
Miguel worked with Usher as a business partner while gradually slipping into the role of his girlfriend. She’s now been seen sporting an enormous diamond ring on the finger usually reserved for engagements.
“She’s happy but they’re trying to keep it quiet,” revealed an insider.
Usher’s previous marriage to Tameka Foster fell apart in public, and he and Grace have been together since 2009. The superstar singer has two children from that marriage, which lasted only for two years. Both are boys, Naviyd Ely and Usher Raymond V.
Usher and Tameka had a vicious custody battle over the two boys, according to the New York Daily News. However, Usher finally received primary custody of his sons.
At 36, Usher has attempted to keep his life private in recent years. His schedule juggling concerts, films, and The Voice has kept him busy as well.
But he did open up about his relationship with Grace, both in terms of his love and in how he regards her as a business partner.
“I have an incredible partner and manager. She has helped me through some of the hardest times in my life and my career. She’s someone who’s 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 business man and as a person.”
Part of that humanitarian side of Usher is his plant-based vegan diet lifestyle, which he adapted several years ago, reported Mother Nature News.
He’s so enamored of the energy boost that he has tried to persuade his protege Justin Bieber to join him, said a source.
“Usher frequents a few vegan restaurants in New York City and not only loves the food, but feels like it’s the healthiest way to live. He’s desperate to get Bieber on the same health kick he is and thinks with all the touring and busy schedule he has, it would keep him energized.”
Usher isn’t the only celebrity to go vegan, as the Inquisitr reported. Jennifer Lopez has credited her vegan diet with helping her lose weight and go from a size four to a size two.
A typical day of her meat-free, dairy-free, gluten-free diet includes millet cereal with fruit for breakfast, topped with almond milk, and a kale salad for lunch. Dinner features pasta made with zucchini and tomatoes. And to satisfy her sweet tooth, J. Lo nibbles on vegan cherry chocolate energy bars.
