Usher's 5-year-old son, Usher Raymond V, is hospitalized after nearly drowning when his arm gets stuck in a pool drain. The incident leads Usher's ex-wife, Tameka Foster, to request an emergency child-hearing to regain primary custody of the pair's two children, which also includes 4-year-old Naviyd. But with their son on the mend, a judge dismisses the case, leaving The Voice judge with primary custody. "I would especially like to thank the two men who saved my son's life, Eugene Stachurski and Ben Crews," he says in a statement. "They are true heroes and I am deeply grateful to them."
The new year starts with some big news for the singer: he's engaged! Sources confirm to PEOPLE that the R&B star popped the question to his manager of three years, Grace Miguel, in January after finalizing his divorce from Tameka Foster. "I have an incredible partner and manager," the Grammy winner told Billboard in its October 2014 issue. "She has helped me through some of the hardest times in my life and my career."
