R+B hunk Usher has shockingly revealed he once got a girl pregnant.

Although he has no children, the 25-year-old U GOT IT BAD singer - who recently confessed to having smoked marijuana in the past - admits he conceived a child with a woman he had an affair with a few years ago.

And Usher, currently dating TLC beauty Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas, has decided to sing about the whole episode for a track on his upcoming album CONFESSIONS.

He says, "I talk about the time I was dating one girl off and on. At a time when we weren't together, I got a girl on the side pregnant. This didn't happen in my most recent relationship.

"Some of my fans may be offended by it, but these are my personal issues and problems, and I'm dealing with them in my own way. I use my music as a diary."
