Usher and his entourage were attacked by up to three gun man outside their Hollywood recording studio.

Up and coming rapper Rich the Kid and his entourage were also attacked at the same time.

The incident, which reportedly happened outside the Westlake Recording Studios, is thought to have been an attempted robbery.

TMZ report that 'multiple shots were fired,' however none of the shots landed in the attack.

Three people were injured, with at least one bodyguard reported to have sustained harm after being hit with the handgun when it was used as a blunt force weapon.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department say that when they arrived on the scene, they found three victims.

'The victims stated, three male black suspects confronted them in the alley behind a business and demanded their money and jewelry,' reads the department's statement. 

'The victims were then physically assaulted by the suspects. All the suspects got into a vehicle and drove away, westbound from the location.'

'As the suspects drove away, a shooting occurred by an unknown male suspect. The shooting suspect has not been located or identified.'


Let's all be honest, we loved Usher back in the day.

With songs like Yeah!, No Limit and DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love, we had many a jam session bopping around to his tunes.

But one thing we didn't know about Usher is just how sound he is.

As he joins James Corden in the latest instalment of Carpool Karaoke, the two get on like a house on fire.

And as well as singing along to his own songs, User and James save a person with a broken down car, and the lads even… dance!

This is definitely one of our favourite ones yet:



It was only in the aftermath of the One Love concert when people began to question, 'Where was Usher'?

The singer was on the line up to play along side Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Robbie Williams, Laim Gallagher, Coldplay and Take That.

However, he was a no-show at the gig and Twitter was quite confused as to where he was.

Well, Usher took to social media last night to explain his reason, and it's pretty legit.

Taking to Instagram, he wrote: "So happy to see that last night's concert in Manchester proved that love always prevails.

"I would have loved to be there but it was my son's first day at Camp Kudzu, one of the few summer camps for kids living with diabetes.

"This was an important day for him and for myself as a proud father. Stay strong UK."

The concert raised more than 9 million in the space of a few hours. Over 10.9 million people tuned in on BBC1 alone, however it was also streaming on Twitter and numerous other sites, with reports suggesting it was the most-watched concert ever to take place.



The Obama's are pretty cool people, so it's no wonder they were honoured last night with a musical celebration called Love & Happiness.

A whole host of acts got together to sing to the POTUS and FLOTUS, and among them was Usher.

The singer sang many of his hits, including Yeah, Caught Up and You Make Me Wanna. And it was the latter that got Michelle up on her feet.

Mrs Obama looked the picture of cool and sassy as she grooved along to the beat, and didn't even miss a word to the 1997 track.

And then the GIFs came rolling in:

We don't think there could be a cooler FLOTUS, ever.


The President Barack Obama and the First Lady, Michelle, put on a surprise performance for Usher last week as he celebrated his birthday in the White House. 

The singer turned 37-years-old last Wednesday and was set to perform for the couple, when suddenly Obama broke out into song and presented him with a cupcake and lit candle. 

Michelle then joined in, to the surprise of Usher. 

So this really happened the other night…… The President and First Lady sang me Happy Birthday at The White House & I…

Usher made a huge name for himself when he came on the music scene in the 1990s – and today he celebrates his 37th birthday. 

The Dallas native isn't showing any signs of slowing down though. Not only did he recently collaborate with Target, supporting their Kids in Need Foundation, it looks like he also tied the knot with his fiancée, Grace Miguel earlier this year.

What's more, the singer-turned-actor is also making an appearance as Sugar Ray Leonard in the upcoming biopic Hands of Stone which stars Robert De Niro. 

So, it looks like 37 is shaping up to be a good year for the star and to celebrate we look back at some of the cutest and funniest of his Instagram throwback photos:



Usher, you have broken many hearts around the world today!

The singer stepped out yesterday in Beverly Hills wearing a big gold wedding ring, which sparked A LOT of speculation of whether he tied the knot to his fianceé Grace Miguel.

But now, E! News have confirmed that the couple did indeed get hitched, but there's still a lot of guessing to where and when. 

Speculation of a possible marriage first began to fill the Internet when the bride – and long-time business partner – posted a photo on Instagram from Habana, Cuba, that showed Usher's new gold band on full display. 

Not to be outdone, Grace also sported some major bling over that holiday too, which appears now to be when the couple were on their honeymoon.

Back in January, E! News confirmed that Usher popped the question, but all other details were left frustratingly unknown. 

"They are extremely happy and the way it was done was very sweet and romantic," one insider told E!. "He can't wait to spend the rest of his life with her."

Late last year, Usher spoke to Billboard about the love of his life. 

"She's someone who's been able to support and understand all of who I am. Not just as a dancer or as a performer or as a singer, but as a humanitarian and a businessman and as a person."


Congratulations are in order for chart-topper Usher who is set to tie the knot!

Sources have confirmed that the rapper is engaged to his long-term girlfriend Grace Miguel. 

This will be Usher's second marriage – he and Grace got together shortly after the Yeah singer split from his first wife Tameka Foster in 2009.

Although Grace is apparently "trying to keep it quiet," it was hard not to notice the massive sparkler on her ring finger at a pre-Golden Globes event in Los Angeles over the weekend. 

The couple have apparently been engaged since at least New Year's, but Grace's ring is SO huge that people first assumed it had to be costume jewellery and not an engagement ring. Oh, to have that problem!

36-year-old Usher has made no secret of his love for Grace – in a recent interview he described his new fiancée as "someone who’s been able to support and understand all of who I am. Not just as a dancer or as a performer or as a singer, but as a humanitarian and a business man and as a person." 

We wish the happy couple all the best!



We can definitely forgive Usher for stepping out wearing sunglasses in the middle of winter, after getting a look at one of his latest (and rather graphic) Instagram posts.

The singer took to the social media site to share a close-up of his eye, bloodshot and looking pretty darn sore.

In a rather telling caption, the 36-year-old wrote: “You should see the other guy!!”

Indeed, if reports are anything to go by, the Moving Mountains singer got into a spot of trouble on New Year’s Eve, and was wearing the results the following day.

According to eye witnesses at his New Year party in Miami hotspot E11even, Usher was seen getting into a fight with a male partygoer who is believed to have insulted his girlfriend, Grace Miguel.

If he was put out about the alleged incident though, Usher certainly didn’t show it as he stepped out yesterday with a beaming face – although that could also be down to his supposed engagement news.

While he has yet to confirm or deny them, rumours are rife that the singer popped the question to 44-year-old Grace, who is also his manager.

If the rumours are true, it looks like Grace has well and truly found her knight in shining armour!



Well, this certainly isn’t good news for ‘DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love’ singer, Usher Raymond.

Back in 2009, global superstar Usher had two laptops and two video cameras stolen from his car. A year later, reports surfaced that one of those laptops contained a sex tape featuring the thirty-six-year-old Grammy award winning artist and ex-wife Tameka Foster, but little else followed.

Well, it seems that we haven’t yet heard the end of that story because it has been reported today that the steamy footage is now being sold on online blogs because adult film companies will be unable to get permission from Usher to circulate the private X-rated vid.

As the video is stolen property, whoever is responsible for attempting to sell it could face jail time. It has been reported that Usher’s lawyer, Mark Geragos is determined to find the person who is attempting to cash in on Usher’s intimate encounters.

Usher and Tameka, who initially worked as the star’s personal stylist, began dating in 2005. They married in Atlanta in 2007 and share two children together. The couple’s divorce was finalised in November 2009.

We can’t imagine how they’re feeling right now!



If you thought that Usher had turned a blind eye to protégé Justin Bieber’s naughty antics, you would be very wrong.

The Yeah singer, who took a chance on Justin when he was just 13, has revealed that he is doing his best to keep him in check.

Speaking to Billboard this week, Usher said: “I’ll punch him in the f***ing chest when I need to, and give him a hug and a kiss when I need to.”


The singer, who is himself a father to two sons, added that while he has been less than impressed with some of Justin’s antics, he will always be there for him.

“I can say I’m not happy with all the choices my friend has made, but I’m supportive of him. He’s making his own decisions and it’s important to show support.”

It’s good to know that someone is keeping an eye out for Biebs!
