Usher Raves About Girlfriend and ‘Best Friend’ Jennifer Goicoechea: ‘I’m Very Happy, Very Fortunate’


Usher praised Goicoechea for bringing balance to their parenting styles.

“She’s better at it than me in many lights. I’m a man-man, so I’m like, ‘This is what we’re doing,’ and I might be a little bit more disciplinary at times,” he said, metaphorically. “If there’s a slap and a hug, I’m the slap and she’s the hug. But that creates balance.”

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

Usher has been tapped to perform at the Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show in February. “It’s an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list,” he said in a statement. “I can’t wait to bring the world a show unlike anything else they’ve seen from me before.”
