Ok, so for many years I thought that the break-up between Usher Raymond and Chilli was because he cheated on her. In fact, I actually thought that Usher’s 2004 Confession album was about them.
But come to find out that wasn’t even the case and in a recent interview Chilli spilldabeanz on what really went down..
During an interview with US Weekly Chilli stated:
We were together when he recorded that album. All of those songs on Confessions, that was about Jermaine Dupri‘s situation. Usher was just singing it. But people kind of bought into it, it was just the timing of our breakup when the album came out. So people assumed that album was about us, but it was not. And Usher and I weren’t oil and water. We broke up because I guess it was that time or whatever, he was that real love for me.
In any relationship, even when it came to my relationship with Usher, when it was time to make a move, I had to do that. I don’t care how much my heart was hurting, sometimes you’re just supposed to be with people for a reason and it’s not always a lifetime. Even if you want it to be, it just doesn’t work out that way. But I’ll always love him, forever, because he was my first adult love, a real love. But we’re cool, we’re really cool. There’s no hard feelings, nothing like that. It’s all good.
