The 45-year-old singer was in Sin City to headline the big game’s half-time show on Sunday night but now it’s been revealed the singer and his partner obtained a marriage licence in Clark County, Nevada, on February 8, reports ‘Female First UK’.

Reports suggest that he wants to tie the knot following his Super Bowl performance. A source told that Usher — real name Usher Raymond IV — made the decision to marry on the advice from his spiritual adviser and the bash will be an “intimate affair attended only by close friends and family”. The publication also reports the couple will exchange vows at one of Las Vegas’ famous wedding chapels.

As per ‘Female First UK’, a marriage certificate has yet to be filed with the courts and the singer has yet to comment publicly on the marriage rumours.

He’s been dating Jennifer since October 2018 and they are parents to daughter Sovereign, who was born in 2020, and a son, who arrived in 2021.

Usher was previously married to Tameka Foster — the mother of his sons, Usher ‘Cinco’ Raymond V, 16, and Navid Ely, 15 — from 2007 until 2009. Before his Super Bowl performance, Usher opened up about his relationship, insisting the couple have an “amazing dynamic”.
