Well, it looks like at least one part of this ongoing drama is no more.
Now, though, sources tell

The stars are coming out to help put an end to poverty!
The lineup for the 2016 Global Citizen Festival was announced Tuesday morning, and there is no shortage of A-list artists set to take the stage in Central Park at the annual New York City concert!
And in case that's not enough stars for you, the festival will be hosted by Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness, Priyanka Chopra, Salma Hayek, Neil Patrick Harris, Seth Meyers, and Chelsea Handler! Now THAT'S a lineup!
Jackman shared the exciting announcement on Twitter, posting:
And now, Usher is opening it back up, too, by commenting on the case where Yeezy used his name in a song — 2005's hit single Gold Digger.
In that song, of course, 'Ye uses a lyric with a direct reference to Usher when he rapped:
"My best friend says she use to f*ck with Usher."
But the 37-year-old R&B star, who spoke about that song on a radio interview in Australia on Monday, laughed off the comparison with Swift, refusing to worry that Yeezy used his name.
Usher told Melbourne radio station Nova 100 (below):
This is too perfect!
Donald Trump has had a wacky habit of using any ol' song he wants on the campaign trail this year, all without permission. And musicians are getting really tired of it!
Thankfully, a few of them partnered up with John Oliver on Last Week Tonight to FINALLY do something about it!
On Sunday night's episode on HBO, Oliver opened up the segment explaining how politicians have pretty much co-opted pop and rock music on the campaign trail, before giving way to an amazing group of artists singing a NEW song about the problem!
Led by Usher, the funny music video included riffs from Sheryl Crow, John Mellencamp, Cyndi Lauper, Josh Groban, and Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons — and it delivered a VERY clear message to politicians: stop using our songs!!!
Ch-ch-check out the funny video (below):
This will be a weekend of stars!
The yearly music fest, which takes place September 23-24 at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena, has no shortage of stars coming even beyond those big three, and the two-day event promises to be an incredibly promising weekend to see some AH-Mazing music!!
In addition to those three big timers listed above, other acts that are going to take part in the first day of the fest include
Usher has been in the game for quite a while, but his dance moves are still as smooth as butter!
On Sunday night, the R&B star took the stage at the 2016 BET Awards to perform his new hit No Limit!
And while he's no spring chicken, the 37-year-old proved he could still bust a move with some killer choreography!
Joined by Young Thug, Usher jammed out to the track off his upcoming album Flawed — though this high-energy performance was pretty effing flaw-less!
Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazing performance (below)!
Talk about leaving a paper trail…
Yesterday we told you Usher's stalker Darshelle Jones was arrested earlier this month for standing outside of an Atlanta recording studio trying to film the U Got It Bad performer with her iPad — clearly violating the restraining order that says she must stay at least 200 yards away from the singer.
Well, turns out, cops didn't get to Jones before she could share some snaps to her Instagram page! She clearly gives zero f*cks.
Jones was obviously trying to make her presence known to Usher as she geotagged herself at the studio and even mentioned him in several posts.
In one picture, the obsessed fan takes a photo of the R&B crooner's Range Rover from behind a bush:
Daaamn, Darshelle… back at it again with stalking Usher!
Remember back in 2012 when the 37-year-old singer was forced to get a restraining order against longtime stalker Darshelle Jones after she broke in his home twice claiming to be his wife? She's BACK!
The arrest report says Jones was only 100 feet away from Usher, when she legally has to stay at least 200 yards from him.
She still remains in custody after being booked for aggravated stalking.
