The singer and his ex released a joint statement to ET on March 6, confirming that they were calling it quits after two years of marriage. "After much thought and consideration we have mutually decided to separate as a couple," the statement read. "We remain deeply connected, loving friends who will continue supporting each other through the next phases of our lives. The enormous amount of love and respect that we have for each other will only increase as we move forward." Usher, 39, and Miguel, 48, secretly tied the knot while vacationing together in Cuba in September 2015 after nearly 10 years together. It was the second marriage for Usher, who was previously married to Tameka Foster from 2007 to 2009. Usher and Foster share two children, sons Usher Raymond V, 10, and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 9.
