Usher Marries Record Exec Jennifer Goicoechea

The couple said "I do" on the day of his Super Bowl halftime show, days after obtaining a marriage license.

Legendary performer Usher married record executive Jennifer Goicoechea on Sunday, the day of his captivating Super Bowl halftime show, according to multiple reports.

The two obtained a marriage license Thursday in Clark County, Nevada, but did not file it until Sunday, People magazine first reported. The Daily Mail first reported the news of the marriage license.

Though it’s unclear if the ceremony was before or after his Super Bowl performance, the two were married at Vegas Weddings, with his mother as a witness, TMZ reported. Later, Usher, 45, and Goicoechea, 40, appeared at his Super Bowl after-party as a married couple, according to TMZ and Page Six.

“Congrats to the newlyweds in the building!” music producer Bryan-Michael Cox said as they entered the party, Page Six reported.

The two were first linked as a couple in 2019 at a birthday party for producer Keith Thomas, according to Elle. Since then, they have had two children, one born in 2020 and the other in 2021. (Usher also has two children with his ex-wife, fashion stylist Tameka Foster.)

Goicoechea, who is from Miami, is the senior vice president of A&R at Epic Records and was dubbed one of Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Power Players in both 2020 and 2021.

“I have an amazing partner, a support system,” Usher previously 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.”

“I’m very happy, very fortunate to have an incredible friend, not just a partner,” he added. “She’s my best friend and I love her.”

Usher’s newest album, “Coming Home,” was released Friday.
