ABC/Fred WatkinsTuesday, Usher and his wife of two years Grace Miguel announced their decision to separate.
Now, Page Six reports that the “U Got It Bad” singer appeared to have been “on the prowl” for a new mate in January.
Hollywood insiders tell the publication that Usher had his eye on Creed actress Tessa Thompson during a post-Black Panther premiere party.
After posing for pictures on the red carpet with Thompson and Janelle Monáe, a witness says Usher and Tessa “had flirty body language…then, he seemed to be following [Thompson] around like a lost puppy.”
The witness adds that when Tessa “walked away, [Usher] followed like a puppy looking for more attention.” Some sources tell Page Six that Usher “seemed in pursuit of Thompson all night,” while others were “confused by Usher’s apparent interest in Thompson.”
Fans have been rooting for Tessa and Janelle to be an item, based on their explosive chemistry in Janelle’s music video for her track “Make Me Feel.”
Janelle told Entertainment Tonight in a recent interview that while she and Tessa “have been really close,” they’re just “really good friends at this point for about three-and-a-half years.”
Usher and music Grace Miguel tied the knot in 2015.
Grace is Usher’s second wife; he married his first wife, Tameka Foster in 2007.
They divorced in 2009.
Usher and Tameka share two sons: Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely Raymond.
Usher and Miguel have no children.
