She will always be his boo.
Usher is a married man after the Grammy-winning R&B star and his girlfriend, Jennifer Goicoechea, officially tied the knot.
According to Clark County Clerk’s Office records reviewed by USA TODAY Monday, the newlywed couple said “I do” on Super Bowl Sunday, though it’s uncertain at what time the wedding took place.
The news comes after a representative for the Clark County Clerk’s Office confirmed to USA TODAY that Usher obtained a marriage license in Las Vegas, where he headlined the Super Bowl halftime show. He and Goicoechea filed their application for the license on Thursday, three days before the Super Bowl.
USA TODAY has reached out to representatives for Usher for comment.
What we know about Usher and Jennifer Goicoechea’s relationship
This is the third marriage for Usher and the first for Goicoechea. He was previously married to stylist Tameka Foster from 2007 to 2009. In 2015, he married entertainment executive Grace Harry. They separated in 2018.
Usher shares two children with Goicoechea: Sovereign Bo, 3, and Sire Castrello, 2. He also has two children from his marriage to Foster: Usher “Cinco” V, 16, and Naviyd Ely, 15.
The “Confessions” singer has been linked to Goicoechea since 2019. In a November interview with People magazine, he described her as his “best friend.”
Usher calls Jennifer Goicoechea an ‘amazing’ partner
“I have an amazing partner, a support system,” he said of the record executive, adding, “We have an amazing dynamic between our relationship where I’m able to be passionate still about what I do and have an incredible partner to work through some of the harder times as a young man dealing with children and dealing with the dynamic of how you communicate with them.”
Ahead of the Super Bowl, Usher also told People that he and Goicoechea have already “made a commitment to life for life together because of our children,” so it “wouldn’t be odd for us to get married.”
From the Super Bowl halftime show to down the aisle
The news continues a big week for Usher after he performed in Super Bowl LVIII, where he brought out guests including Alicia Keys and Ludacris. He dropped his ninth studio album, “Coming Home,” on Feb. 9 ahead of the big game, and he’s scheduled to head out on his Past Present Future Tour starting in August.
“After the journey that I’ve had in life over the last six years, I feel like I’m coming back to start,” he previously told USA TODAY. “I’m more refreshed and more refined as a result of so many experiences that I’ve been able to come through.”
