The Grammy-winning artist tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend in Las Vegas, multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE
Usher is married!
The 45-year-old Grammy-winning artist and longtime girlfriend, Jennifer Goicoechea, 40, tied the knot in Las Vegas over the weekend where the singer performed at Super Bowl LVIII, PEOPLE has confirmed.
Just three days before the “Yeah!” artist was set to take the stage during the NFL championship, Usher and the music executive obtained a marriage license in Clark County, Nevada.
After the big game, the pair stepped out together in Las Vegas, and Usher was photographed wearing a gold band on his left ring finger. Goicoechea was dressed in an all-white pantsuit featuring an off-the-shoulder, tie-waist jacket and wide-leg pants, while Usher wore a white floor-sweeping fur coat over his black tuxedo.
A representative for Usher did not respond to request for comment.
Speaking with PEOPLE exclusively earlier this week, the Super Bowl 2024 halftime show performer opened up about his relationship with Goicoechea.
“Listen, when you find someone that you know is a great partner, of course it is an honor and a pleasure to be able to share life with someone who wants to share it with you and loves you, who you are,” he said.

“We’ve obviously made a commitment to life for life together because of our children,” Usher continued. “It wouldn’t be odd for us to get married. We already did here. You know what I’m saying?”
“And we’re going to be in each other’s lives until we die, obviously, because we have something to share. That’s beautiful. Our children. But not because of that. I really do feel like I have an amazing partner that I respect.”
Usher also opened up about forming a deep connection with Goicoechea during a time of growth. “I started this journey, I found and met an amazing partner who happened to be my best friend and was there all the time, and I was like, wow, this could be great,” he said of the start of their romance, which began after he took a soul-searching trip around the globe in 2018.
The newlyweds welcomed their first child together, daughter Sovereign Bo, in 2020, followed by their son, Sire Castrello, in 2021. Usher also shares two sons, Usher V and Naviyd Ely, with his ex-wife, Tameka Foster.
Goicoechea and Usher first sparked dating rumors when they were photographed together at producer Keith Thomas’ 40th birthday party in June 2019.
Ahead of his performance at Super Bowl LVIII, Usher added that Goicoechea is always cheering him on. “I have an amazing partner, a support system,” he told PEOPLE.
“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.”

Usher continued to rave about the support and love from Goicoechea, saying, “I’m very happy, very fortunate to have an incredible friend, not just a partner. She’s my best friend and I love her.”
Having worked in the music industry for years, Goicoechea crossed paths with Usher several times before they became romantically involved.
In March 2016, she shared a photo of herself whispering in his ear at an undisclosed event. A few years later, in March 2018, she posted a throwback photo with him and other male creatives, including producer Bryan-Michael Cox, captioned simply: “Boys Club.”

However, it wasn’t until after they were photographed attending Thomas’ birthday celebration in Atlanta in June 2019 that rumors swirled of a possible romance between the two.
They were then spotted kissing backstage at a concert at the Hollywood Bowl in October 2019.
In December 2019, the newly-minted couple also cozied up at Sean “Diddy” Combs’ 50th birthday party in Los Angeles, per The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
