EXCLUSIVE!! R&B Singer Usher’s Father Dies SUDDENLY!!!

: You won't hear this report anywhere else in the world. MediaTakeOut.com is sad to report to you that Usher's biological father, Usher Raymond III died of unspecified causes on Friday at an Atlanta hospital.

MediaTakeOut.com exclusively spoke with a person close to the Raymond Family who tells us that Usher, his wife Tameka and mother Jonetta Patton were all by Usher Sr.'s side when he passed.

Usher's parents split when he was only a baby. And Usher Sr. battled a crack-cocaine addiction for most of his life. But throughout all the difficulties, Usher and his father maintained a solid relationship.

MediaTakeOut.com offers its sincere condolences to the entire Raymond family

Usher, my sincere prayers go out to you and your family. For one to think you wouldn't be able to have a relationship with a parent with an addiction is rediculous. It's important for our loved ones to know we still have their backs even through addiction. I'm glad you were there in his final hours. Guilty .. I guess you have to hear news from white folks before you believe anything. Sad all around. Usher stay strong.

Today was my 1st time seeing you on the site. If you look in the Brittney and Method Man stories I wrote you a couple of messages as did other people. So you see 121269 is not the only one who has a few word or wisdom for you. I have much love for you and your opaque stockings! :)

RIP to Usher's dad. I will pray for you Usher!!! To be honest Usher doesn't favor his dad that much, Usher got all of his looks from his mom. Maybe when his dad was younger he probably favored him but not in that picture. Even though his dad has been on crack, Usher's wonderful mother was a good single parent to him. Single mothers do just as fine as married mothers take it from my experience. But anyways Usher stay strong and still be the fine Usher you are sweety. Love ya Usher!!!!!

Yall have a lot of nerve. MTO yall can take 'Members of the press who use the above information must credit MediaTakeOut.com' comment and feed it to the birds. Have you all EVER cited a credible news source in any story ever posted on this site? No, you have not. So why are yall demanding other people to do so? Don't tell people to do sh!t that you won't even do. Besides, why would someone want to credit this so-called site when the person who runs this so-call site don't or won't even bother to proofread his work? Simple ass. Would it kill you to go back and re-edit your sh!t...especially after so many members have made you aware of your typos? "Usher, his wife Tameka and mother Jonetta Patton were all by Usher SR.'s side when he passed." Here's an exclusive for you: Usher's biological daddy ain't dead because Usher's biological father's name is Usher III...not Usher Sr. Usher Sr. is Usher's great-granddaddy. Now, tell me again why in the hell should anybody cite you as a source when you are 1. too ignorant and too lazy to proofread your work...which to me are obvious signs that you all know absolutely nothing about journalism; and 2. you just don't know what you're are talking about. BTW: Usher's father never lived in Atlanta. I hope this story is false and Usher's father isn't dead...then everyone will know just how far you will go to get a juicy story on your site. Not only that, but I also hope Usher sues the crack out of your ass for 'exclusively reporting' such a thing.

Dude, you are hooking too many girls. Your profile was found at the millionaire dating club millionairecupid.com last month. Leave them alone if you are not serious of relationships.

@Teeza, in addition to your statement, here's my report on Usher's biological paternity for the record. According to Anthony "Tony" Amerson, a fellow alumni and friend of mine from San Francisco State University (SFSU) where we were both pre-health professions science majors, Tony discovered he is Usher Raymond's biological father from an intimate relationship he had with Usher's mother Jonetta O'Neal in their youth. Tony Amerson reported to me that he only became aware of his paternity after Usher became an entertainment success as a young man. That's when Amerson noticed the uncanny resemblance, learned who Usher's mother is and put the timeline together. Tony reports that he and Jonetta's relationship broke off in 1978 while it was unknown to Amerson that O'Neal was pregnant. She moved out of state and did not stay in contact. Shortly thereafter, Jonetta O'Neal married Usher Raymond, became Jonetta Raymond (ultimately she became Jonetta Patton). And according to Internet sources, Usher was born 14 OCT 1978. Plus, I can vouch for the fact that Tony and Usher look VERY MUCH like father and son. According to Amerson when we spoke on the matter circa 2009, he has reached out to meet Usher, establish the previously unknown family connection and offered to introduce Usher to his many half-siblings by Tony. But the interest was not mutual. As a result, Amerson states he respects Usher's wishes because his interest is in a positive family relationship with Usher, and Tony does not by any means want him to think the contact is because Usher is wealthy.
