Usher does not have a "new chick," nor is he cheating on his wife, contrary to a sensational claim. Gossip Cop investigated the suspicious story, and now we can exclusively reveal the truth.

Along with paparazzi photos of the performer, MediaTakeOut exclaims in a headline, "NEW CHICK???? R&B Singer USHER Is Spotted Frolicking With A TATTOO'D BIKINI BEAUTY... Out In Hawaii!!!" The webloid writes in the accompanying story, "R&B singer Usher is still married... but yesterday paparazzi snapped pics of him on vacation in Hawaii. And he was spending time with a tatted up beauty. It's not clear whether Usher's wife Grace was with them."

All it took was snapshots of Usher and the "tatted up beauty" paddleboarding separately for the site to imply he may be cheating. But, as is often the case, those particular pictures don't tell the whole story. In fact, by only showcasing photos of Usher and his supposed "new chick," MediaFakeOut significantly misrepresented the outing.

Usher was not off on some romantic excursion. In fact, he and the "chick" weren't even alone during the water adventure. Gossip Cop has exclusively learned the former "Voice" coach was in Hawaii for a private concert. As such, he was joined by a team of dancers and staff. All together they went paddleboarding during some free time.

"The girl pictured is one of the dancers that went paddleboarding with the group," an impeccable contact exclusively tells us. A rep for Usher further tells Gossip Cop that his hangout with the dancers and staffers was "all platonic fun." He certainly wasn't "frolicking with a tattoo'd bikini beauty" the way MTO is suggesting.

But it's really not surprising MediaFakeOut wouldn't know what's actually going on with the star. After all, this is the same webloid that wrongly claimed Usher was getting married on August 15, 2015 with a family wedding in Savannah. Gossip Cop busted the untrue story at the time, and we were proven right when he and Grace didn't wed until the following month, with the couple eloping with a trip to Cuba.

Our Verdict

Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
