Usher’s spokesperson has officially confirmed that he married his longtime girlfriend Jennifer Goicoechea in Las Vegas, immediately following his Super Bowl performance on Sunday.
The ceremony took place at The Terrace Gazebo, an outdoor wedding chapel, with Usher’s mother, Jonetta Patton, serving as their witness according to the marriage certificate.
“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,” his representative told People.
“They both look forward to continuing to raise their children together surrounded by love and thank everyone for the well wishes.”
Prior to the wedding, Usher and Jennifer were seen in Las Vegas with matching all-white outfits, leading to speculation about their impending nuptials.
Moreover, they had obtained a marriage license in Las Vegas a few days before the Super Bowl, further fueling the rumors.
Usher, known for his hit song “Yeah!”, has been in a relationship with Jennifer since 2019. They have two children together, Sovereign and Sire.
He told People days before his Halftime Show performance that it “wouldn’t be odd” for him and Jennifer to get married as they were already committed to “life together because of our children”.
Usher was previously married to Tameka Foster, the mother of his two teenage sons, between 2007 and 2009 and to Grace Miguel between 2015 and 2018.
During his show-stopping performance at the Allegiant Stadium, he brought out surprise guests including Alicia Keys, will.i.am, Lil Jon and Ludacris.
