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.

YES IT IS SAID THAT THIS HAD TO HAPPEN TO ANYONE, I JUST HEARD THAT USHER'S WIFE IS NOW BRAIN DEAD, MAKES SENSE THAT A NEROSURGEON HAD TO BE FLOWN IN. SO SAD, TWO YOUNG CHILDREN BEING WITHOUT A MOTHER. LET'S KEEP USHER IN OUR PRAYERS AND NOT JUDGE.

Rich people actually go out of the States to have plastic surgery. Brazil is actually world renown for its plastic surgery. All the hot girls there get plastic surgery like it's nothing.

There has to be another reason other than being cheap fpr her to go to Brazil...obviously she has Usher's money. MAYBE we won't perform plastic suregery on someone who just had a baby a little over a month ago, but there's no such protocol in Brazil. This is what happens when you want your way without listening to sounder judgments.

I had surgery out of the country..because the drs were better trained at this procedure (not cosmetic). American doctors are not necessarily the best. I hope Tameka recovers quickly. ANY surgery has serious risks and people need to really be aware of the risks. Its become so common for people to get cosmetic procedures because they see all the celebrities looking so good when its not realistic. It must be very serious indeed if she cannot even come back to see a neurosurgeon here. My heart goes out to her children.

First you should seek more information on the internet before you say anything about Brazil... People want to got down to Brazil to get surgery because they have heard good stuff about the country and what happened to her there could have happened to her anywhere.. That was her body reaction... OMG There are so many stupid plp in this world... they dont even know what they are talking about...
