Singer Usher Raymond says the past 12 months have been the hardest for him. The 34-year-old crooner recently lost his grandmother, and one of his sons was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes.
Usher revealed his son’s diagnosis during an appearance on the “TODAY Show” this week. The singer didn’t reveal which of his sons is diabetic. He has two sons — Usher Raymond V, 6, and Naviyd David, 5, — with ex-wife Tameka Raymond.
Beyonce has a soft spot in her heart for children. The Mega Star threw her full support behind Kile’s World, the foundation established by singer Usher Raymond‘s ex-wife Tameka Raymond for her son Kile Glover, who passed away following a jet ski accident on Lake Lanier in 2012 at age 11.
Family friend Jeffrey Simon Hubbard was convicted of homicide by vessel, serious injury by vessel, reckless operation and unlawful operation of personal watercraft. He was sentenced to four years in prison earlier this month.
R&B singer Usher Raymond was all smiles despite reports of protege Justin Bieber dissing him as he shopped along La Brea Avenue in Hollywood, CA on Monday. The popular singer and judge on ‘The Voice’ avoided answering questions about Justin as he shopped at American Rag.
In a court deposition video leaked by gossip website TMZ, Bieber dismissed reports that Usher discovered him. “Usher? Yeah, that sounds familiar,” said Bieber. “I was found on YouTube. I was instrumental in my own career.” Similarly, the Jackson 5 always denied the manufactured story that they were discovered by Diana Ross.

Kile Glover is the son of R&B singer Usher Ryamond’s ex-wife Tameka Raymond and music industry veteran Ryan Glover.
Singer Usher was spotted craning his neck to gawk at a woman as he departed a clothing store in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Thursday. Usher wore a Davy Crockett Coonskin hat and gold metallic Air Jordan 3s as he left the James Perse mens store. He arrived on the west coast earlier in the day, after an Atlanta jury convicted a family friend in the Jet Ski death of Kile Glover, the 11-year-old son of Usher’s ex-wife, Tameka Raymond.

The family friend who was riding a Jet Ski that ran over 11-year-old Kile Glover on Lake Lanier was found guilty of homicide by vessel today. Kile is the son of singer Usher Raymond’s ex-wife Tameka Raymond.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Jeffrey Simon Hubbard “was also found guilty of serious injury by vessel, reckless operation, unlawful operation of personal watercraft and boat traffic violation in a Hall County courtroom.”
Pop singer Usher Raymond, 35, was spotted dashing to his Range Rover SUV after shopping at Maxfield store in West Hollywood, LA. Usher was later seen having lunch at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. I broke the news on Twitter.com that Usher finally unloaded his $3 million Roswell mansion at a loss ($2.2 million). I’m told it took some convincing to get Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Foster Raymond to move her things out after the closing, but don’t quote me on that. Tameka reportedly took a job working on a reality show to make ends meet.
