After spending 11 days in intensive care following a plastic surgery procedure that went wrong, Usher‘s wife Tameka Raymond was released from a Sao Paulo hospital in Brazil.
According to the Associated Press, a spokeswoman confirmed that Tameka was released on Monday (February 16), but declined to provide any details regarding her treatment. Usher’s camp did not comment at press time. Since being rushed to the hospital during Grammy weekend, it’s been revealed that she had flown to Brazil to undergo a “simple liposuction,” but went into cardiac arrest while being anesthetized. Tameka was placed in an induced coma for 24 hours to stabilize her, while Usher waited by her bedside during recovery.
Usher was scheduled to perform at a pre-Grammy party for Clive Davis, but canceled due to the family emergency. When the news first broke, Usher, through his rep, released this statement: “Tameka Raymond is in stable condition after suffering complications from routine surgery in Brazil. Her husband Usher is with her at the hospital.” The rep also added that the couple do not plan to release any further details and asks for their privacy.
