LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – Marriage documents from the Clark County Clerk’s Office shows that singer and songwriter Usher got married the same day as Super Bowl LVIII.

FOX5 confirmed through marriage records that he and his longtime girlfriend Jennifer Goicoechea were issued a marriage license on Feb. 8. This was only three days ahead of the big game at Allegiant Stadium.

Usher and Goicoechea have two kids together and have been dating since 2019.

“Congratulations to the Newlyweds! What a great game and Ushers performance was phenomenal! We were beyond thrilled to host in this epic day for Usher and his new wife,” said Melody Willis-Williams, president of Vegas Weddings. “As much as we love, love, this is the couple’s news to share any further details on. We’ll always be fans of Usher! Yeah!”

The marriage certificate shows the two got married at Vegas Weddings at 555 S. 3rd Street in downtown Las Vegas. It was stamped by Clark County Clerk Lynn Marie Goya Monday at 2:16 p.m.

A representative for Usher, Lydia Kanuga, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press.

The document, issued Thursday, lists their full names — Usher Raymond IV and Jennifer Jean Goicoechea — and shows they paid a $102 filing fee. It notes that Usher has been married before and Goicoechea, 40, has not. It also lists their business address at a commercial building in the Encino neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Usher divorced his first wife, Tameka Foster, in 2009 after two years together, and he won custody of their two sons. In December 2018, Usher filed for divorce after three years together with his second wife and former manager, Grace Miguel.

Usher’s Super Bowl halftime performance Sunday at Allegiant Stadium drew acclaim and included guest appearances by such stars as Alicia Keys, H.E.R., Jermaine Dupri, Lil Jon and Ludacris. The Kansas City Chiefs won the NFL championship game in overtime, 25-22, over the San Francisco 49ers.

Usher recently ended a two-year Las Vegas Strip residency of his production “Usher: My Way” at the Park MGM. He just released his first solo album in eight years, and in August is scheduled to kick off a 24-city U.S. tour titled “Past Present Future.”
