The couple hit the red carpet last night during the 69th annual Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of ‘Hands Of Stone,’ the film which focuses on the career of Panamanian boxer Roberto Durán who developed a fierce rivalry with American fighter Sugar Ray Leonard, who is portrayed by Usher in the film.
The 37-year-old entertainer also attended a photo call earlier that day with co-stars Robert De Niro, Ana de Armas and Edgar Ramirez, as well as the film’s producers and director that got tongues wagging about Usher’s relationship status.
More details + photos below…
Grace seems to keep Usher in a vice grip the night of the movie premiere but insiders are saying it was all because of Usher’s actions earlier that day.
Apparently Mr. Raymond was feeling himself a little TOO much during the earlier photo call, where he was seen fawning over his 28 year old co-star, Ana de Armas.

It was also noted by several news outlets that the newly married singer wasn’t wearing his wedding band…
News quickly spread (online and off) linking Usher to the sexy young starlet and word on the curb is that Grace was livid when she saw the photos!
So much so, that her attitude quickly changed from avoiding the cameras (which she usually does) to demanding to be placed next to her husband all night long… including in group photos with the cast & crew.
It was these photos that sparked the news that there is trouble in paradise between the newlyweds. Blogger Sandra Rose even broke down the body language stating:
…that’s Grace’s hand on Usher’s waist; but his body is turned away from his wife and toward his co-star Ana, who is single.
Then there’s the hopeless, almost desperate expression on Grace’s face. Those are very bad signs.
FYI – Gracie also made sure Usher ‘found’ his wedding band for his appearance during the evening’s festivities…
Like I always say, pictures can certainly tell a story but I’m not sure these photos are saying what Grace & Usher want us to hear…
On a related note, during the festival, Usher was asked about his
mid-life crisis recent NSFW photo Snapchat photo scandal to which he replied:
“I was naked-ish. It was all in good fun!”
What do you think of Usher & Grace’s red carpet pics?
