An Update on Usher’s Wife

It was reported earlier this week that Usher cancelled his Grammy appearance because he had to fly to Brazil to see about his wife, Tameka’s, emergency medical situation. All we knew before was that she had been scheduled to have cosmetic surgery and due to complications, Usher hopped on a plane along with a top-notch neurosurgeon and flew to be with Tameka. E! now has an update that Tameka went into cardiac and respiratory arrest after she had been given anesthetic. From E! News, 

“Despite the best attempts by Usher and his family to keep the situation under wraps, new details have emerged on the nature of wife Tameka Raymond’s “serious” medical emergency.

“The family has demanded total privacy,” a spokeswoman for São Paulo’s Sírio-Libanês hospital told the Agence France-Presse. “The hospital is barred from giving any information,” said the rep, beyond confirming the 37-year-old mother of two is currently listed in stable condition. But the blackout hasn’t prevented Brazilian news outlets from digging beyond the official statement from Usher’s camp, which says his wife had suffered “complications from routine surgery.”

The news site G1 got much more specific, reporting that Foster was rushed to the hospital’s intensive care unit last Friday after going into cardiac and respiratory arrest during a liposuction procedure. The life-threatening condition reportedly came on as the R&B star’s wife was being anesthetized. According to G1, doctors at the hospital placed Raymond in an induced coma for 24 hours to stabilize her. She is currently in recovery.

While Usher quickly, and relatively quietly, canceled his Grammy weekend appearances to be by his missus’ side, G1 reports that he and his mother likely had company during their flight to Brazil. Dr. Gabriel E. Hunt Jr., a neurosurgeon from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, is said to be down in São Paulo to lead Foster’s care.”

This is just an awful situation! It is good to hear that Tameka is in stable condition as that makes it sound as though she had a really bad scare but is doing much better now, even though she undoubtedly has a long way to go for recovery. Maybe this will help Tameka bond with her mother-in-law, Jonetta Patton, who was known to refuse to attend the wedding of Tameka and her son because the two women clashed so badly. Even Usher’s mom has to feel badly for this poor woman who has been through so much!
