Usher's Son Hospitalized in ICU After Pool Accident

Usher‘s son, Usher Raymond V, has been hospitalized in the ICU after suffering a serious accident in the a pool, according to TMZ.

The 34-year-old entertainer’s five-year-old son was playing in the pool when he dove down to retrieve a toy from the drain when he got stuck. Several attempts were made to pull him out and he was finally freed.

At the time, Usher was not at home, but rushed back and met his son at the hospital in Atlanta, Ga.

Doctors have been running tests and say Usher V will be ok.

The accident comes a little over one year after Usher‘s stepson Kile passed away in a jet-ski accident.

Our thoughts are with Usher and his family during this time for a speedy recovery.

    Positive thoughts going to Usher and his son. Only takes a second for someone to turn their back on kids and unfortunately an ACCIDENT happens.

  • Christina


    He wasnt there! How does that make him a horrible father?? Think before you speak!

  • DERP


  • Stephen

    OMG. I hope his little boy is doing better and getting soon well again.

  • what is wrong with you

    @rachel: How mean and bitter must you be. So every working mother or father are horrible. Are you then paying all the bills for all the working parents in this world, so they can control their kids 24/7?

  • S

    How horrible – I hope the little one is ok.

  • WTF

    great father.. or should I say hire better help.

  • Sean

    @rachel: I think it is a horrible accident, and that’s it, accidents do happen and Rachel, are you perfect, flawless and nothing bad every happens cause you are always there all the time? if so good for you, but not everyone has that opportunity, shut the hell up and grow up, not everyone can stay home and judge people the way you do …. just saying, my prayers are with Usher’s family

  • Donnie

    My prayers go out to Usher… hopeing his son has a speedy recovery soon.

  • Love The Shoes

    Where’s the prayers and good thoughts for this child’s mom?! What is wrong with you ppl?! You may not like her but she IS his mom and she’s lost one child! Usher didn’t have those boys all by himself!

  • Aubreegrl

    If he’s working, i dont understand why the children cannot be with their mother.

  • Love The Shoes

    @Aubreegrl: Because he’s convinced the world that all she’s been good for is a womb. I like Usher but this acting like he’s got a halo over his head and she’s got horns is jacked. He’s not perfect. He’s simply got more money and the power that accompanies it.

  • Katrina

    I agree….. How can she even part her lips to say he is a bad father? It’s not like he left the children home without an adult supervision. This could have happened if he was right there in the pool with the child. People are a trip. Accidents happen everyday while parents are with or without their children. I just pray that he has a speedy recovery and the family is at peace.

  • Katrina


    You need help. God forbids something like this happens to you….. would you feel you are a bad parent? Accidents happen when parents are with or without their children. This doesn’t make them bad parents. So is Tameka a bad parent because her son (may he rest in peace) died in a jet ski accident a little over a year ago? No it doesn’t. Same goes for this incident. Think before you speak or post and remember this could be you. My prayers go out to the Raymond family and also to your family and you that you get the mental help you need.
