Usher’s Girlfriend Takes Charge of His Album

Usher‘s new girlfriend may be causing trouble at his record label.

The “Yeah!” singer is reportedly involved in a relationship with Grace Miguel - who until recently worked for Def Jam Records, a rival to Usher’s Jive label.

“Some people see it as a conflict of interest. She’s still under contract with Def Jam, but Grace seems to be calling the shots behind the scenes on Usher’s album,” an insider told the New York Daily News newspaper.

It has been claimed the situation has “complicated” the making of the LP and is upsetting record company executives - who recently pushed Raymond v. Raymond back from its original December 21 release date.

“It has complicated things tremendously. Usher has her calling the shots now. Grace has been taking calls with the big bosses at Jive regarding Usher’s CD, and the label doesn’t like it,” the source added.

Grace’s alleged relationship with Usher - full name Usher Raymond IV - has also caused family friction, upsetting his mother. Jonetta Patton is said to be “mad that Grace is stepping on her toes and meddling in her management affairs.”

Usher’s current predicament mirrors one with his former wife. - whom he divorced this year - was said to be behind the firing of his mother as his manager, in favor of agent Benny Medina.. Jonetta was later re-instated as Usher’s manager in June last year.
