Usher's wife, Tameka Foster, is recovering in a Brazilian hospital after suffering serious complications during routine surgery, according to the singer's publicist.
However, despite the family's demand for privacy, the Brazilian media has uncovered some details about what went wrong.
Brazilian news website G1 is reporting that Foster, 38, was rushed to the Sirio-Libanes Hospital's intensive care unit last Friday after a medical emergency during a liposuction operation. Foster reportedly suffered cardiac and respiratory arrest as she was being anesthetized for the procedure. She was put into an induced coma for 24 hours and was now recovering, according to the website.
