After keeping mum on his current relationship with former Def Jam executive Grace Miguel, Usher slyly let the cat out of the bag at this year’s American Music Awards. While accepting the trophy for Favorite Soul/R&B Album, the 32-year-old gave a quick shout out to his lady love during his acceptance speech. “I’d like to thank my partner in crime, Grace Miguel,”he said after accepting one of his two awards of the evening for Soul/ R&B Favorite Album (Raymond v. Raymond) and Soul/R & B Favorite Male Artist.

The twosome have been dating for what seems like months now, while Miguel was thought to be the reason behind his split with wife Tameka Foster. The couple has since been spotted house hunting in New York over the summer. Although Usher has never acknowledged the relationship as the motivation behind the break up, he has noted that he and Foster are friends. “With my ex-wife, there was a lot of pressure in our relationship because of my career. Now that’s alleviated we’re friends and make smart decisions for our children,” he told Britian’s Cosmopolitan magazine.

Usher and Foster finalized their divorce last year and share custody of two young sons, Usher Ramyond V, 3, and Naviyd, 23 months.
