Chris Brown and Rihanna weren't the only ones dealing with personal issues Grammy weekend.
You can add Usher to the mix.
He was supposed to be one of the performers at the star-studded party for music chieftain Clive Davis. But he backed out.
Davis told the audience that Usher stayed away because of what Davis called a serious illness in his family.
A representative for Usher says the singer's wife, Tameka Raymond, is recovering from surgery in Brazil.
Publicist Simone Smalls says Raymond "is in stable condition after suffering complications from routine surgery in Brazil. Her husband Usher is with her at the hospital."
No further details were provided. In her statement, Smalls says "the family requests privacy at this difficult time."
The 30-year-old R&B star and his wife were married in August 2007. They have two young sons, 2-year-old Usher Raymond V and 2-month-old Naveid Ely Raymond.
What the El!?! Editorial:
Access Hollywood reports Tameka experienced complications from plastic surgery. Sources say she was put in a medically induced coma but is now out of the coma.
Did no one learn from Priscilla Presley? You don't go to a foreign country for plastic surgery!
