[artist id=”1270″]Usher[/artist] canceled his performance at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party due to a family emergency, Davis told the crowd at the event on Saturday.
“Access Hollywood” is reporting that Usher’s wife, Tameka Foster, is in Brazil and has experienced complications from plastic surgery. A neurosurgeon, Dr. Gabriel Hunt, of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, is on the way to South America, the site said.
At press time, a rep for Usher had not commented on the news. Josh Groban filled in for the Usher at Davis’ event.
Foster gave birth to the couple’s second child, Naviyd Ely Raymond , in December.
The couple’s first son, Usher Raymond V , is 1 year old. Usher and his wife got married in 2007 in Atlanta in a simple ceremony, after canceling the original, more lavish wedding . There were many rumors about why they rescheduled, including Usher’s mom disapproving of the relationship, claims the couple later denied. Tameka has three sons from a previous relationship.
In September, after rumors started flying that they were expecting another child, Usher declined to confirm the news on the set of his “Trading Spaces” video . But with a knowing smile, he spoke candidly about the joys he’s found in being a dad to Usher Raymond V.
“Loving it. Loving every aspect of it. My life improved so much in having a child,” he said. “I’m very happy. It’s a very promising thing to have a child. … Everybody’s saying that [I’m expecting another baby]. There’s a lot of speculation.”
Shortly after having his first son, Usher sat down with Essence magazine to talk about becoming a dad. “What is the one thing that I would want my child to know if I could just tap him on his head? That I’m here,” he said. “That I love him, and he matters more than anything. And I ain’t going nowhere.”
