Usher Cancels Gig Over "Serious Family Injury"

2/8/2009 11:37 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Usher A family emergency caused Usher to 86 his performance at a pre-Grammy party last night -- and one report claims it's because his wife is in trouble after having cosmetic surgery.

Music bigwig Clive Davis announced at his Pre-Grammy Bash that Usher's cancellation was due to a "serious injury in the family" -- and according to Access Hollywood, his wife Tameka had "experienced complications from plastic surgery" in Brazil.

Access claims a neurosurgeon is on the way to South America to assist Tameka -- who gave birth to their second child back in December.

Isn't he married to a much older woman? A woman his mother did not want him to marry? Why can't people be happy in their own skins? Why can't we just grow old gracefully?

Brazil is not the third world... They have the best specialists in cosmetic surgery. Accidents happen everywhere (even in the US). We don't know the facts, so we can only wish her the best.

I do wish his wife a swift recovery, but man hollywood claims another victim of false reality.

Tameka's youngest baby with Usher is just 2 months old. Having a cosmetic procedure soon after giving birth can cause complications. It takes about 8 weeks for the uterus to return to it's normal size post delivery. I don't know why a neurosurgeon is needed or has to be flown into that country. For the sake of her babies and her kids from her previous marriage I hope she is going to be okay.

I feel bad for Usher. Since Tameka has entered his life it has been one issue after another.
I do hope, however, that she will be alright.

If she needs a neurosurgeon my guess is she developed a blood clot.
That's why you need to get out of bed asap after surgery and start walking around.

If celebrities were'nt so insecure in their own skin they wouldn't be at risk for a procedure going wrong. Vain, vain, vain. I hope she's happy at the possibility of losing her life and destroying her children's lives all for the sake of looking pretty. How's Usher going to explain that to the children when they're older. Well mommy died because she was vain....

Blood Clot.....probably one of the most common plastic surgery complications (or any surgery for that manner).
