Usher walked into 2024 feeling more confident than ever ahead of his iconic Super Bowl Halftime show, but this year hasn’t been all roses and rainbows for the R&B crooner. He did tie the knot to his long-time lover and remind us all how awesome his discography is over the past few weeks, but at the same time, Usher’s been catching strays regarding his sexuality for some time now. Discourse previously heated up amid Keke Palmer’s feud with her baby daddy, Darius Jackson, at which time the actress’ mother stated that her daughter wasn’t flirting with the “Yeah!” hitmaker as he was a member of the LGBTQ+ community.

Usher himself didn’t address this gossip, but now that Kimora Lee Simmons seems to be insinuating that he and her ex-husband, Russell, might’ve been intimate, people are putting the Baby Phat creator on blast. After Rus shared a heartfelt message thanking the Texas native for supporting him during a low moment, KL was among those adding fuel to the fire in the comments. “Not ‘by my bed!!’ Lolol ,” she wrote on her story after seeing her co-parent’s post. “What is this I’m seeing in the news today??

Social Media Reacts

Countless others have been rushing to Usher’s defense amid the drama. “This was unnecessary, and this is one of the reasons Black men don’t speak up.
