Usher's girlfriend urges singer to fire staff

April 12, 2011 Usher, Tameka Foster, Miguel

New York, NY, United States (AHN Entertainment) - Usher is being controlled by a woman yet again. The Grammy-winning R&B singer's girlfriend Grace Miguel is reportedly urging him to fire all his staff members and replace them with her own people.

Grace, the 43-year-old Def Jam exec who also acts as the star's co-manager and stylist, has apparently taken control of his career. She apparently wants him to clear out all his staff, including stylists, choreographers and tour managers, and replace them with her people. She already fired Usher's longtime agent, Mark Cheatham of CAA, according to Page Six.

An insider said, "Usher will do whatever she wants him do right now."

When asked about the report, Cheatham replied, "I don't know anything about it. I've been with Usher for a long time. I've been on great terms with Usher. Talk to my publicist."

Usher is no longer listed as a CAA client.

A source told Page Six, "Mark is really upset. He's been with him from the beginning. He thinks Usher will come back, he's just waiting."

Usher and Grace have been together since 2009, shortly after he filed for divorce from 40-year-old Tameka Foster. She signed as his co-manager after he fired his mother from the role.
