Not to fear, Usher Raymond IV is still on the market.
Despite multiple claims that stated the "No Limit" singer was dating Shaniece Hairston (the daughter of Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada), Usher and the 25-year-old model are nothing more than carpool buddies.
Earlier this week, a source told Page Six Shaniece and Usher attended Diddy's 49th birthday party together, sparking dating rumors. “They came together and left together,” said the insider. However, a spokesperson for Shaniece's mother, Evelyn, later told the news site that the two's relationship is completely platonic. "Shaniece is not dating Usher. They were all going to the same destination and just so happened to share a car," the spokesperson explained. "They are not dating."
Evelyn also shot down dating rumors on her Instagram Story. "LIES!!!!" she captioned an article referencing Usher and Shaniece's possible coupling. "Fake News."
Shaniece would have marked Usher's first public girlfriend since his split from his wife Grace Miguel back in March.
Usher and Grace called it quits after ten years together (they were only married for two). "After much thought and consideration we have mutually decided to separate as a couple," the couple said in a joint statement following news of their uncoupling. "We remain deeply connected, loving friends who will continue supporting each other through the next phases of our lives. The enormous amount of love and respect that we have for each other will only increase as we move forward."
The two tied secretly wed in Cuba, back in September 2015, after getting engaged in January of that year. The former couple dated for over five years, going public in 2009, just after the singer’s split from his first wife, Tameka Foster.
