Usher’s wife hospitalizedFebruary 13th, 2009 - 7:25 pm ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi
Last week, a Brazilian doctor said Usher’s wife was hospitalized in Sao Paulo after suffering a cardiac arrest shortly before undergoing plastic surgery.
Ellen Dastry, spokeswoman for plastic surgeon Silvio Sterman, says Tameka Raymond checked into the Sao Rafael Hospital last Friday for a ’simple liposuction.’ Raymond suffered a cardiac arrest while being anesthetized for the procedure ‘but was revived in less than a minute by heart massage,’ Ms Dastry said.
Raymond was then placed in an induced coma before being taken to the intensive care unit, a procedure Ms Dastry said was done ‘in order to avoid unnecessary complications.’ Raymond is currently recovering in Sao Paulo’s better-equipped Sirio-Libanes Hospital, Dastry said without providing further details.
R&B star Usher was supposed perform at music mogul Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party last Saturday, but he backed out for what Davis called a serious family illness.
