Usher has been relatively off the scene as he’s been busy filming for the upcoming Sugar Ray Leonard film, but the R&B singer opened up recently and revealed that he’s been dealing with something pretty serious situations as of late.

It turns out he just learned one of his sons is a diabetic and he recently lost his grandmother.

He tells the San Francisco Chronicle:

“This year has been really one of my hardest years – I lost my grandmother, my son was diagnosed as being a type one diabetic. It has definitely been a difficult one for me, man.”

Now that his son is a diabetic, Usher has to be very hands on about his son’s diet:

“Sometimes you’re looking at me and we’re off camera, and I’m online looking at numbers, trying to make sure he’s eating properly. It’s crazy.”


  1. Oh man. Well I’m glad he’s helping his son manage his Diabetes. It’s definitely something that runs in my family and I have to be proactive about it everyday.

  2. I really hate to hear this. I hope this situation brings Tameka and Usher closer together as parents. Put your pride aside and think about your child.

  3. Exercise, eating right and staying a few steps ahead makes Diabetes manageable. I’m glad Usher is being so hands on.
