R.I.P. Sean Levert

Photo: Wireimage/Getty

Sad news to report in the music world: Sean Levert, the younger brother of R&B singer Gerald Levert and son of Eddie Levert of the O’Jays, has died. Levert was rushed to a hospital after collapsing at the Cyahoga County Jail where he was being held for non-payment of child support.

    Levert, 39, died at 11:57 p.m. at Lutheran Hospital after being transported to the facility from the Cuyahoga County Jail. Sean Levert had gone to the jail infirmary complaining he was sick.

    It was in November that Sean Levert started singing again. He talked with NewsChannel5 about finishing a project — bringing the group back together — that his brother started.Gerald Levert died Nov. 10, 2006. He was found dead in his bed at his Newbury home. (Source)

I have to say this about a justice system that locks up too many good black men: They need to find another way to deal with the child support problem because locking up brothers is not the answer. We have too many black men in jail who are put there by vindictive women who don’t get it that a man doesn’t want her any more.

Yes, you have some shiftless, no good men out there. But most brothers would support their kids if it weren’t for the baby mama wylin’ out on them. Any woman who has dealt with her man’s ex-baby mama knows what I’m talking about. How does a man pay child support if he’s in jail? How does locking him up solve the problem?

R.I.P. to Sean Levert. Our prayers are with the Levert family.

    I could not believe it when I heard this. I was listening to The Tom Joyner Morning show and a caller called in to send Eddie Levert & Family their condolences. I was like man they repeating a show from almost 2 years ago. Then I get to work and pop on the internet and see it was Sean. I just can’t believe this.

    Prayers to the Levert Family!!!!

    My goodness, that poor family. While the reasons behind him not paying are not known, I can imagine the stress of ending up where he did had to play a part in his getting sick. His children where not babies, its all so sad. Condolences to his children and to his entire family.

    R.I.P. TO SEAN AND MY PRAYERS ARE WITH HIS FAMILY.

    SANDRA, I KNOW YOU’RE NOT TOO FOND OF TY FROM BAD GIRLS CLUB BUT I READ A RECENT BLOG OF HERS ABOUT BABY MAMAS & BABY DADDIES…. THOUGHT I’D SHARE IT WITH EVERYONE. NOT TO TAKE THIS TOPIC OFF THE REAL SUBJECT BUT I THOUGHT I’D REPOST IT…………….

    DAMN! I really didnt wanna go there with this topic! I really wanted something and expected something different! But I have to ask: As women when do we learn?

    When do we learn to see the RED FLAG of a no good ass nigga on our hands? When will we learn that its not our fault for what HE did? When will we learn that you can take a n**** out the hood…but you cant take the hood outta him? HUH? When will to learn that too many **** ups means just that: HES A **** UP? When will we learn to stop forgiving and let his ass GO?

    Being 25 I’ve had all different types of men in my life? And I just experienced one of the worst yet to come! This isnt a “diss blog” this is a “foreal ****” blog! After I left my ex on the show…I was single for almost a year and a half…loving life…”experimenting” lol and just enjoying being me ya know! No problems…well “men” problems! Anyway I’m not here to explain in detail all of my life…but moreso a warning to my young women fans out there who email me for advice all day everday that: Even though your ready to settle down….you’ve probably even “settled for less” with who your dating and still ready to be committed to only them: you cook…clean…keep your hygiene and body tight…watch his kids…cook for his kids…suckin’ and fu**** him right…working…going to school! PLEASE thats never enough for a man: So I say in 5 simple words:

    IT AINT YOU BITCH…ITS HIM!

    My number one rule has always been: I DONT DATE MEN WITH CHILDREN! Why you ask: cause regardless of what they tell you of how much they hate her…it was never serious just a fling….shes ugly and fat now….shes got kids by another man i would never want her back after that….HE’S MOTHA****IN’ LYING! Every man is basically like a woman…he wants that family value….that security…but he wants you to deal with his **** at the same time also! Specially the broke ones…there sooooo desperate! You cant save a man that dont wanna be saved!

    To the ladies who meet a man with kids and you dont have any: RUN AS FAR AWAY FROM HIM AS POSSIBLE! Its a no win situation…either hes got baby momma drama…or hes secretly asking for her back or tryin to hit..cause shes more than likely that desperate to do whatever it takes to “be a family”! So shes gonna keep it hush hush..or she can be one of the loud ghetto ones and tell it all! Now thats not dissn all babymommas…all three of my sisters are baby mommas…and they are strong women and dont care for the daddy…they take care of theres…but its the daddies who secretly beg for them back…or would have a new girl..and still try to sneak around with the mother!

    My guys readers wit kids aint feelin’ this **** right now ya dig…Ima be gettn emails up the ass sayn..my kids mother is in check! “I dont have babymomma drama” beware of them ladies…there the ones that FOR SURE DO! Im just tired of these duck ass men making babies jumping from twat to twat making kids they cant care for then wanna talk about “I dont date women wit kids”….WOW Maybe its cuz you have a village already….I mean duh! Child support behind like WHOA….drivers license gets suspended so now you and your boo cant chill or you gotta drive all the time…he cant have any money in the bank cause child support is garnishing EVERY ****IN’ DIME! But even through all that…they still “cut the **** up” like they doin something for you that spectacular that you wont wanna leave! LOL

    Ladies I dont know about yall…but theres no sex that damn good in the world to make me stay for the drama! I have two friends I met at the adult shop…who dont talk back…and i still get my variety ya know! (My vibrators) LOL

    Okay…with that said…I grew up and realized that my options were very limited with finding a man with no kids! So I gave in a decided to take a chance..not once…not twice….not three times but FOUR! Damn I thought the 3rd time was the charm! WRONG LADIES! I’m 25 and still dont have kids for a reason! I REFUSE TO BE CALLED A “BABYMOMMA” but Im no dummy so I do realize that I too am not saved from ever being put in that catergory! Im not naive by any means…but Im learning to be smart about it! Dont think that just because he says he cares about you the most and that his other “babymommas” meant nothing…dont expect to be different! CAUSE YOUR NOT…AND YOU MORE THAN LIKELY WONT BE!

    RED FLAG 2 that he’s a DOG: He doesnt even take the time out with his own children! Meaning different things, he nevers speaks about them…*you know how folks who love they kids always talk about em’* or he never AND WHEN I SAY NEVER I MEAN NEVER…GOES TO GET THEM OR SPENDS TIME WITH THEM! Except holidays of course….if that! That shows you that if a man doesnt love the seed that sprouted from him…his own flesh and blood! HE DONT GIVE TWO ****S ABOUT HIMSELF OR YOUR ASS! Thats a deep one…cause I dont care who is in my life…my kids will always come first! **** THAT

    So now I’ve experienced all I feel I can take on : 101 dating a BABYS DADDY!

    To the men with kids whos not with any of the mothers…and I said babymommas with an S…stop makin these kids you cant afford..and even if you can afford them…make an effort to stay the **** at home and put ur family first! Nothing more unattractive to me then a man with the grip of kids and he’s not with at least one of the mothers seriously! Do you know how it feels to be brought up in a one parent home? THOUGHT SO!

    Oh yeah: SHOUT OUTS TO ALL MY REAL FATHERS…WHO STRIVE EVERYDAY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THERE CHILDS LIFE AND SHOW THEM SOMETHING BETTER THAN HOW WE WERE RAISED! AND REAL SHOUT OUTS TO THE MEN WHO MARRIED THE MOTHER OF THERE CHILD AND WHO ARE COMMITTED TO RAISING KIDS BY WAY OF A MOTHER AND A FATHER IN THE HOME!

    To my single mothers….**** them ducks! Get yours stop calling yourself a “babymomma” though…Make him or whoever refer to you respectfully as “the mother of his kids”

    And to my babymomma dramas: ya’ll are a trip…having a baby didnt make him want you…or keep him around! So stop slangin’ your twat for free to him ya dig! You got kids to take care of

    GOODNITE FOLKS

    Rest in Peace, Sean. My condolences to your family, I can only imagine how hard it must be to lose not one, but two sons.
    I have to say, though, that blaming the mother because the daddy won’t support his child makes no sense. The child is still the man’s responsibility – regardless of his relationship with the child’s mother.

    I don’t know all of the details surrounding the child support issue, but how did he get $80.000 in the hole to began with?…It seems like he could have worked something out before it came to him having to go to jail…And it’s not the mother’s fault if he owed that money to his kids, but like I said I don’t know all of the details surrounding his relationship with this woman or what kind of person she is.

    RIP SEAN.

    THIS IS A VERY SENSITIVE ISSUE. TOO BAD HIS CHILD SUPPORT STORY WASNT DISCUSSED BEFORE HIS DEATH. THAT WOULD HAVE GIVEN EVERYONE THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPRESS THEIR FEELINGS BEFOREHAND.

    TRUTH BE TOLD, IT’S SAD AND AS WE ALL KNOW BECAUSE HE IS IN THE PUBLIC EYE THE CHILD SUPPORT ISSUE WILL COME UP ALONG WITH HIS DEATH. WE ALL KNOW YOU DON’T JUST GET LOCKED UP FOR ARREARS OF CHILD SUPPORT. IT’S DEFINATLEY OVER A PERIOD OF TIME.

    ONCE AGAIN – GOD BLESS HIS FAMILY. GOD BLESS HIS CHILDREN EVEN MORE.

    ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE HIM.

    I am so saddened to hear about this. It is in our times of grief that we want to blame somebody for our loss. We cannot blame whoever this lady is about him not doing what he’s suppose to do. Mothers don’t get the opportunity to just walk away for the most part.

    Take care of your children!! The law shouldn’t have to force you to do that!!!

    My love and sympathy to the family!!! I’m sure that the mother of his children are grieving as well and that’s the last thing she and their children need to think is that she caused his death. That’s not true.

    Sandra that was so insensitive!!! But it is your blog!!!

    Well we really don’t know the true about the stories we are reading, but one thing we do know is that a family has lost another love one. My prayers are with his mother as well as the whole family, it is extremely hard for a mother to lose her child, in this case two so close together.

    RIP Sean Levert!! Condolences to the Levert family! As for the child support issue and jail. Some people deserve to be in jail. I mean men and women who refuse to work or even refuse to be apart of their Child or childrens lives. I have a cousin (male) that has two baby mommas and 5 kids!!! He refuses to work and lives in his momma’s basement with his 2nd baby momma, they are averaging having a child every two years!!! So people deserve to go to jail, they arent doing nothing else but being a burdon on everyone else!!! Pluse his momma is on dialysis for kidney disease so she tolerates him because she has her own issues to deal with…as I said SOME people deserve jail!!!

    As far as the child support argument you are trying to start up being that you obciously had children raised them alone and let the father decide when and how much to give so you are the expert to speak on the issue so I’m gonna let you have that one

    If you don’t pay then you PAY. Sorry he went to jail but that’s a seperate issue from him being sick. I don’t care if you feed the homeless every weekend and run the Vote for Obama campaign. Pay for your children and you won’t end up in jail.

    It is sad that another young black male has passed away under such traumatic circumstances. Seems like deja vu how his brother is also gone. May he rest in peace….

    intensemocha says:

    RIP

    How about all that money he made why did he even owe this amount in back child support?

    how about the baby mamas don’t make the law so why is it their fault when the law is enforced?

    How about stop depositing babies in women that you don’t want to have anything to do with after the 15 minutes is over? ie hoes, tricks, jump-offs etc.

    If you feel like every woman is out here trying to trap a nicca with a baby just for his paper all the more reasons you should strap up or better yet …..imagine this one get married and only sleep with your wife?

    Too much like right that’s why, for ever woman we here about that allegedly trapped a man with a baby or suppposedly is wildin out on her baby daddy-there are at least 5 niccas for each one out here that don’t want nothing to do with their child simply put just because…….no other reason than they don’t feel like it.

    It’s becoming more and more of a phenomenon-& it has nothing to do with the fact they can’t afford to-perfect example, Eddie Murphy (pays but has nothing to do with the child, Juvenile (who didn’t even attend his child’s funeral) owed child support also & his excuse is because his wife didn’t know about the girl-

    Stop blaming single-moms for everything; any mother who takes care of her child all by herself is taking full responsibility for having unprotected sex-what about these men? They deposit babies and walk away in the same way a dog pisses on a tree and walks away without a care in the world.

    It is what it is-there are men out here who don’t give a damn about their kids and if they’ve moved on with a new woman the child is viewed as a casualty “too bad, your momma no longer serves a purpose to me, so you (the child) has to suffer the consequences”

    The same women who complain about the system and unfair treatment of the baby daddy’s are probably the same ones who would disagree with a woman refusing to allow a man to see his child-right? Then why do women condone and support the men who have the opportunity to have a relationship with their child who don’t do so simply because they don’t want to.

    Stop being a sexist-it aint right for any parent to abandon their child and not financially support them. This sh$t has become all too common, especially when you are trying to justify it by blaming the only one who IS taking care of the child-if you want a full-time nanny it costs money dammit!

    NC_NYer says:

    I had to get in on this discussion….(even though I agree, we could spend a whole day talking about child support, so we could definitely use a separate post on that)

    First of all, I know the Levert family must be hurting now with their second loss. Condolences to them.

    OK….now…let me add in my two cents on the whole child support/baby mama situation…

    First of all, let me just say that I do have a child, and if you’re the type of person that doesn’t date someone because they have a child, then that is certainly your right, although I don’t agree with that point of view.

    In my personal experience, there WAS drama, for a while. Not necessarily because of a new girlfriend or boyfriend, but there just was negative tension between us. And then, yes, the child support setup as well. Hoping to avoid continual drama over the years, I did two things. #1 – I GOT over her (and she got over me). It did take a few years for us to be completely over each other, and it was painful, but it did happen. #2 – We put a child support order into effect as well, because even though I was sending checks (that I kept for my own records), there were still arguments over the money. Once those two things got settled, it was easier to move forward. She wasn’t waiting on me to send any money, and since the courts had decided everything, there was nothing she could argue about, so I didn’t have to hear any drama from her.

    As far as my own feelings, I don’t ask or care about what men she’s seeing, and I don’t ask or care about how the money I send her is spent. I think that’s something the fellas could learn from. They have issues getting over the woman, and they still want to have control over what she does….that is just plain wrong. Now that I’m sitting here thinking about it, having a child with someone and then separating can be just as damaging to everyone involved as a divorce.

    I think some women have issues (including BIG self-esteem issues) as well when things don’t work out. A few of them were looking to build a life with that man, and when things don’t work out, it’s devastating. Then she spends (in my opinion, WAY TOO MUCH of) her time bitter and angry when she could be MOVING ON with life. They try and get back at the father by always putting him in a negative light in the child’s eyes, or refuse to let the father see the child. Unless the father is a danger to the child, a woman cannot bar a man from seeing that child. If the woman feels like it’s an issue, she can always file for supervised visitation.

    And in the end – (like Judge Judy often says) – there are a great number of people who just aren’t intelligent or mature enough to have children in the first place!!

    All the more reason for men to choose their sex partners wisely and/or not have unprotected sex. problem solved.

    Also, even if the “baby mama” is “wylin’ out on them”, deal with it. you have a child that needs support.

    this is very sad. i am praying for the Levert family and the kids. i bet everyone is shocked and hurt.

    i must ask, who says the kids’ mother still wanted him anyway? or in any situation? plus even if the “baby mama” is wylin’ out a man should still take care of his kids. or stop sexin’ all these women they don’t plan to stay with anyway. kids are as equal responsibility for the mother and the father. hello…sex without a condom = babies, and stds! deal with it and stop being so greedy with getting your jimmy wet that you don’t think of the possible future. men and women need self control.
    plus sandra i don’t recall you thinking many black men were “good” anyway. when did that change? you usually say they all cheat. hmmmm…

    sali says:

    Sandra,
    I’m gonna have to come to your defense on this one. Every baby mama situation is different but GOING TO JAIL IS NOT THE ANSWER. So now not only is dude not paying his child support but now my tax dollars are going toward him being locked up. Both parents fail to realize is that the one that gets hurt the most is the child. Both Men and Women need to take responsibility for birth control. People now a days jump into bed first then get to know a person. I gaurantee you if they got to know the person first they wouldn’t end up sleeping with them and then there wouldn’t be drama like it is today.

    My condolences go out to the family. Given his weight, history of family heart problems and the added stress just put him over the edge. Now let’s see how the government will collect the child support… New drama unfolding; there is going to be a fight over his Will and estate if he has it.

    Destiny says:

    First and formost, I want to extend my sincerest condolences to the Levert family.

    Men should pay the child support that they are required to pay by law and they won’t find themselves in jail. Just because a woman is in need of child support from their child’s father does not make them vindictive nor does it mean that they don’t get the point that the man doesn’t want them. They just want them to take care of their responsibilities!! Simple as that. It took the two of them to bring the child on this earth. TAKE CARE OF YOUR SH*T. SIMPLE.

    When a man doesnt support HIS child your tax dollars then go towards supporting that child via WIC, medicaid, food stamps, subsidized child care, subsidized housing, summer programs boys and girls clubs, free school lunches…i could go on. If he supported his seed from the get niether scenerio comes into play.

    Ok, damn, I don’t usually post to much. But Sandra your comments right here regarding the justice system was totally ass backwards and uncalled for. Especially while telling us about Sean Leverts death.

    I have the deepest sympathy for the family of Sean Levert; it’s tragic that this happened. Lord Knows I would never wish such a thing on anyone.

    But what does his passing have to do with the justice system changing the way that they deal with this child support problem?

    Number one: Male or Female; both should have reprecussions for not paying child support. Jail is just fine by me.

    I feel like it gives them a Huge Ass incentive to get it paid next time.

    Number two: Obviously you were never a single mom caring for a child with no child support; nor do you care for anyone who is. You’d know why then.

    Thirdly: Are you secretly a man or something? because I totally can not understand you saying this. I mean I know you know someone who is a single parent-without child support and can see how that family could potentially do better; had they gotten some child support.

    My opinion about your opinion regarding this issue is best said like the youngins say it

    %oe Sit Down.

    GWU says:

    For all of those people who say a man who doesn’t pay child support should be in jail, why should my tax dollars go towards locking up your man AND putting money in your bank account (welfare) because you have poor taste in men?

    Garnish their pay, deny these men social assistance so they HAVE to work, hell garnish the wages of their live in girlfriend or their mother, if that’s who is supporting them. But any solution that involves me footing the bill anymore than that, I cannot support.

    By the way, do you think Laverts ex-wife was smiling when he went off to jail? How much child support will she be collecting now. Better yet, what the hell does she tell her kids.

    whatnow says:

    Deadbeat dads should pay child support and if jail is what happens when they don’t then so be it. ANY parent, father or mother should go to jail if they don’t take care of their children.

    That someone is not getting the royalties they use to is not an acceptable reason.

    Sean’s problems are all over now. Grieve for the living that he’s left behind.

    okay here you go, if a parent cant afford the dollar amt payment set by the court they can petition the court to assess their financial situration and reset that amt. Jail is usually the last resort.

    @wiggy2272003
    u r right, my tax dollars are going to the women being on welfare but they have their FREEDOM! I’d be happy to pay to keep a murderer/rapist etc. in jail but not a man who didn’t pay his child support or a person who didn’t pay their parking tickets.
    I know someone who made a mistake and he slept with the wrong woman and before he let her continue using his child against him he was the one who started the child support process and have visitations. I don’t know about other places but in NJ the court does not look at what the man is earning, they look at the cost of living for the child. He could no longer afford to live on his own and had to move back home with his Mom in order to pay child support. Now if the two were together as a couple he would not be spending that much on his child and since the chick isn’t working he has to dish out more money.

    I’m all for men needing to step up and take care of their responsibilities but the court justice system needs to come up with better ideas of making them pay instead of putting them in jail.

    I agree, if he could afford the money I’m sure he would have come up with it instead of being locked up.

    My prayers go out to daddy Levert. Its hard for a child/kid to loose their parent but when a parent looses a child it is very tragic because as a parent myself I would break down if I lost one of my kids let alone two in less than 2 years apart. Its like why do I need to live, you just start to give up on life. R.I.P. Sean

    Also makes me think about how Black people need to take care of their body. The entire family has always been heavy and he looks like he isn’t a stranger to dabbling in drugs.

    RIP Sean Levert, however I don’t condone any man Black or
    White not taking care of their kid! It’s a shame in so many
    communities of color that kids suffer, not all women are gold diggers… We need to stop all the nonsense!

    Sandra-

    I couldn’t agree with you more on your statement about the child support. Jail and revoking licenses is not the way to address those issues. That is completely hindering them from paying. And I also agree about the triflin women that think they should have to work and live off of the support that is suppose to be for their children.

    I know plently of woman with kids that spend the entire check on themselves the children are lucky to see a few dollars of it. A celebrity rapper I know has a baby with a loser I know and the whole check goes to her for LV bags and items had he not been the position he is wouldn’t ever warranted her to even care about stuff like that. and you can trust in believe her son get a few things here and there. I hate it I am a struggling single mother with 2 kids and both my kids fathers are deadbeats I work 2 jobs to support my children. All I need is a little help with school clothes, lunch, school trips, etc…I can keep my own self fly I don’t need my kids money to do that.

    It’s a damn shame say what you want about 50 cent but that dude said enough was enough he didn’t let Shaniqua pimp him no more we took his self to court and now she went from 50k to 6,700 a month and hell that is more than enough hell I never heard mention she had a job either.

    And they wonder why these men act like they do. It’s crazy.

    Asaide from me venting on that I want to say I feel so sad for the Levert family once again I know Eddie never thought he would live his children…..GOD BLESS the entire family.
