Usher has been quietly living in Las Vegas since 2022

There’s no need for the Super Bowl LVIII headliner to travel to Sin City for his hyped halftime show.

Usher has been calling Las Vegas home since mid-2022 when the eight-time Grammy Award-winner started his “My Way” residency and moved his family here.

I began to curate my own little world here, so much so that I’ve actually put a flag in the ground. I’ve actually moved here.”

Usher told The Hollywood Reporter

“For one year I’ve been here. I’m not saying that this is the end-all-be-all, but I have a place here so I can accommodate my family,” the R&B star added in a lengthy interview with the Hollywood Reporter at the beginning of 2023.

And while he’s managed to keep all the deets about his Las Vegas house under wraps, the Confessions singer did let it slip that he lives in a sprawling apartment or penthouse in one of the city’s luxury residential buildings — calling it his “really cool mansion in the sky”.

We kind of live in this really cool mansion in the sky down here, so it’s pretty fun to be in the middle of all the action and then come right home and you’re with your kids.”


The artist wrapped up his Las Vegas show in early December 2023, in an emotional show that saw the 45-year-old overcome with gratitude and tears.

And that’s because Usher has long been planning his “phenomenal show” if he ever landed a Las Vegas residency, as this 2004 clip would indicate:

Now whether or not Usher will continue to live in Las Vegas after his Super Bowl performance, that remains to be seen.

But so far, it would seem that both he and his family — Usher shares daughter Sovereign Bo and son Sire Castrello with current girlfriend, Jenn Goicoechea, and also has two boys, Usher V and Naviyd Ely, with his ex-wife, Tameka Foster — are loving life in the desert oasis.

Usher’s houses throughout the years

And while we’ve already answered the most pressing question (where does Usher live now), we’d be remiss if we didn’t take a look at the R&B artist’s previous homes — especially since they’re a refreshing change from the sprawling, ultra-modern Cali mansions other A-listers call home.

That’s not because he lacks the funds.

A defining figure in the music industry for over two decades, Usher has amassed an impressive net worth estimated at a whopping $180 million. He just doesn’t need to flaunt it or splurge on eight-figure houses.

Looking at the houses he’s bought — and sold — over the years, we see a pattern: the man knows how much space he needs, and settles on beautiful homes that meet his family’s wants without going for “status purchases” that would consolidate him as a ‘baller’, real estate-wise. Don’t believe us? See for yourself:

His Atlanta homes

Born on October 14, 1978, in Dallas, Texas, and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Usher’s journey to stardom began at an early age.

His mother, recognizing his natural talent, moved the family to Atlanta, Georgia, a move that proved pivotal in launching his career.

It was in Atlanta where Usher’s velvety voice and charismatic presence caught the attention of LaFace Records’ co-founder, L.A. Reid, leading to the release of his self-titled debut album in 1994.

And the rest is, as they say, history.

Usher went on to become one of the most influential figures in contemporary R&B and pop music. But despite his impressive net worth of $180 million, the Yeah singer kept it fairly down to earth with his home purchases.

#1 A three-bedroom house he sold for $775k

He owned a three-bedroom, three-bath house not far from Mercedes-Benz Stadium, that he bought in June 2007 for $970,000.

Right before filing for divorce from his second wife, Grace Miguel, he listed the 2,908-square-foot home for sale, with a buyer paying him $775,000 for the Atlanta house in 2019.

#2 The Alpharetta house he fell in love with at age 13

Early in his career, Usher (whose full name is Usher Raymond IV) stayed true to a promise he made to his younger self: when he’d make it big in the music industry, he’d buy his music producer L.A. Reid’s house, which left an impression on him at the tender age of 13.

I came into this house … and I remember walking through it, just being mesmerized by everything I saw, and it was like, ‘One day, I want to own a house like this.’”

Usher recalled in a 2003 episode of “How I’m Living

An 8,000-square-foot home with 7 bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms, a climate-controlled treehouse, a yoga studio and a private dance studio, L.A. Reid’s house is impressive — but pales in comparison to some of suburban Atlanta’s megamansions.

Luckily, he didn’t see Evander Holyfield’s former home in the nearby Atlanta suburb of Fayetteville, a 109-room behemont which later became rapper Rick Ross’s mansion.

“I ended up buying this house. There’s history in it. My history lies in this house.”

But despite the history, the U Remind Me hitmaker (who’s not one to hoard properties, it would seem), sold the Alpharetta house formerly owned by L.A. Reid for $1.5 million back in 2018.

His former villa in Los Angeles

Usher also owned a Spanish-style estate in West Hollywood set on the same block as the landmark Chateau Marmont Hotel.

The property, which he first listed for sale in early 2018 for $4.2 million (it ended up selling for only $3.3 million), was originally built in 1926 and has been “artfully restored” to accommodate the artist and his growing family, retaining original details like stenciled beams and handcrafted ironwork.

But the artist sold that 5-bedroom house too in 2018, one of three homes he offloaded in the span of a single year.

Now, with his Las Vegas residency over and his net worth balooned by his Sin City shows plus his Super Bowl performance, Usher might be in the lookout for a new place to call home. Looking forward to seeing where he settles next.
