I wanted to personally let you know that Sean Levert did not die in Jail, yet he was sent to the hospital and died one hour later(Midnight) at Lutheran Hospital. Right now we (the family) are devastated by my uncle death, and we wish thank everyone for the prayers and the condolences.

Thank You.

family is more important than money. a person selling their body for money is prostitution, that is a crime not paying child support isnt. i'm sick in tired of women trying to justify that putting a man in jail for failure to pay support is ok, so if he goes to jail do they take the kid to see him? maybe they feel like that's the only way to control the situation or they realized what they should've off rip they was nothing more than the jump. y bring a child in the the world that ultimately you will have to raise on your own. if you didn't have this child wouldn't you still have to pay rent, utilities, food, etc for your self. these dumb broads let the courts dictate the wrong thing to them, what you should want to do is find a man that wants you 1st, then have a baby, not get pregnant then try to find your b-daddy. if a woman can get an abortion, then if a man doesnt want to be there he should be able to be exhonerated from all responsibilities. it seems like we are slowly but surely reverting back to slavery days, the only problem is it's not the white people we have to worrying about its our own people. sean shouldn't have had to die in jail, because the women who had these kids should've had plan b (like a job, education, something else to fall back on besides boasting about baby daddy being in Levert). but now he's gone i wonder will they tell the kids that daddy was in jail because I didn't get what was owed to me. I met his (shar) daughter's mother a while ago, anyway every other word came out her mouth was something about sean levert, eddie levert, or something with levert. I hadn't been in the room less than 10 minutes and she was gettng sean levert daughter 2-gether 2 go c granddad eddie. leave seanboogie alone, if we had more men like him getting together trying to change the laws of child support, then a lot of them wouldn't be in jail, license suspended, etc. fellas keep hope a live not all women 1-want to have all them babies and 2-want to deal with drams. but its a lot who do, so before you start trying to screw ask qualifying questions in the beginning that way you can process and eliminate the jumps from the real women. rip-sean and gerald. to the levert family look to god for guiadance.

Bottom line dumbass... And if he wasn't making payments then mom has a right to go after payments. The money helps raise the children they made together..

In reading some of the earlier comments i have to say that I'm DISGUSTED by the remarks made by people. (1) To DerekDee: Eddie Levert is not a puzzy whipped whimp! why should he put up 86k for his son not being responsible! for all you know Eddie was probably paying the baby mother anyway! (2) SeanBoogie I understand what u sayin, but not everybody that takes their kids father to court is looking that check. My prayers goes out to the family especially the parents. They just buried 1 son now the other.

CLEVELAND (AP) - Singer Sean Levert, son of lead O'Jays singer Eddie Levert and brother of the late R&B singer Gerald Levert, has died after a medical emergency in jail. He was 39. Levert was sent to jail last week for failing to pay child support and died late Sunday night at Lutheran Hospital in Cleveland, said coroner Frank Miller. Miller said an autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death. Gerald Levert was 40 when he died in 2006 of an accidental mix of prescription and over-the-counter drugs. The Levert brothers and childhood friend Marc Gordon were part of the R&B trio LeVert. Their hits included "(Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop) Goes My Mind" and "Casanova." Copyright © 2008 The Associated Press

They just played "Stairway to Heaven" by the O'Jays...man I couldn't stop the tears from flowin. I'm thinking that both brothers might of had a pre-existing condition.

Seanboogie: I agree with you. Some of these women are "gold" diggers. Looking for a way out of work, so they get pregnant by a famous person. Look at Heather McCartney, and Marla Trump are 2 examples. At least Juanita Jordan will have a life without Michael eventhough she walked away with something like $150 million. The laws must change or be amended. This is ridiculous. My heartfelt condolences to the Levert Family.

That is so sad that Eddie lost both of his sons at young ages...and I just refuse to believe that he was that distraught over being jailed due to his not paying child support. I could see if he was setup or something...grown men are responsible for the children they make and the government is sick of supporting other people's kids. Thats why they locking these dudes up.

sorry to hear this. I have a comment.i dont think that it is called for to call a mother out of her name because she does the RIGHT thing by taking a dead beat dad to court to seek monies that are OWED to the child or children. It's not her fault that he passed.It makes me sick to hear men(boys should I dare say) COMPLAIN about money going to there own child or children! Some people would rather put the money elsewhere than on there child. It is truly sick but instead of praise for the mother she gets called out of her name. get it together people. Put your children first.You just may need your childrens help when your older and can't do for yourself.

He should have been taking care of his Kids. 90% of women will not take a man for child support unless he aint doing nothing or much of nothing. We have a hard enough time just trying to get these men to aknowledge and spend time with they're kids. You think the next thing we want to do is sit up in court with yall triflin asses for child support. Hell No! He should have been paying something, obviously he wasnt because they came and got him. and obviously these lame azz ni66s is the broke ones becasue they're the ones gettin locked up for not putting out for their own kids. You must be one of these lyin azz cocksuckers cause you goin hard. Does this hit home? Do me a favor and get off MTO and go get a job u BUM. And stop crying and whimpin bout what women get away with.

Oh wow. I feel for the father. I'm sure it's a sad sad sad situation for a perent to experience their kids leaving this Earth before them. I can't even begin to imagine his pain. Another thing... It is very shocking to see people's attitudes toward the mother. I mean REALLY...are ya'll SERIOUS??? You make a baby...you gotta take care of it...point blank. Why do certain people feel like all the responsiblity should fall on the mother when she didn't make the baby by herself. Men know how to strap up if they don't want a baby. THESE KINDA ATTITUDES ARE EXACTLY PART OF THE REASON WHY THE BLACK COMMUNITY IS IN SUCH JEOPARDY!!!! Kids growing up, having a deadbeat father, having to go without, watching their single mother having to struggle. This only causes the kids to grow up and repeat the cycle. Some people in the world are just out right ridiculous in their logic of thinking.

@luscious_vanilla...@goddie...@all who have the same point of view. It's about the children and being a man and SHOWING how wonderful it is to be a part of your childs life. This goes for the mom's that don't take care of there own children as well.Put your children before a man and stop having men around your kids. That is disrespectful and men stop having women around your kids.It seems that parenting is a joke in these days.

UMM imma act like you dont know better! SEANBOOGIE I'm not a bird at all. Buty it;s just annoying when all these men do is think about the money. Yes do yall forget it costs money to raise kids. 9 times out of 10 we are spending everyday with our child feeding them clothing them, making sure they have what they need for school ETC. Yeah all that costs money and when you have to do it by yourself it's even harder. But the deadbeats get to walk around without a care in the world about that damn child. Thats they sad part. Then yall want to cry and get all emotional and what not when we move on to someone that can help us. If your not going to be a father then dont bitch when we find someone who does not have a problem being the us and "OUR" Kids. Then yall wanna say "Oh she got another man around my child", so I aint paying. That when you find ya azz in jail because of your narrow minded thinking. IF YOU KNOW YOU WILL GO TO JAIL FOR NOT PAYING CHILD SUPPORT, SHUT THE FUCC UP AND PAY IT! I personally think that child support should go to the child, but it's her buisness what she decides to do with the money. If you want to track where your money is going then you should be there with your child. Point Blank. And if she gettin her nails done or an outfit or whatever with the check the most likley its coming from her pocket anyways because she probably had to pay for something else that your "LITTLE" check couldnt cover. Stop crying and take care of your kids.

SEANBOOGIE...I see that you aren't the brightest star in the sky. Let it be known that there PLENTY of men who receive child support from the mother. We even have cases of the fathers taking them to court to get their money due to having a deadbeat mother. It can go both ways. Take care of your babies people. I have 4 kids and I only have about 3 or 4 good outfits because the rest of my money goes to getting the kids clothes instead of me. But ask my husband how many clothes he has....he has less than me cause he taking care of his. If you take care of yours you will never be summoned to court. Plain & simple.

I've never understood the rationale behind sending these men to jail. How do they hope to get the money if the individual is incarcerated??Do they ever put liens on property or cars?? Although I know sometimes these fathers don't own homes or at least they're not in their names. I just wonder how they expect them to come up with the money in jail OR maybe he's been given the opportunity and didn't come through, oh well. I did hear last week that Eddie did not know of Sean's child support situation (Eddie lives in Vegas) but was in the process of coming up with the money. I wish men would understand multiple children by multiple mothers will lead to a lifetime of stress, pressure, financial instability, depression, etc. Get a grip and use some form of birth control (EVEN IF IT MEANS A VASECTOMY)

Glory58, I PERSONALLY have been with 2 MEGASTARS who were ready, willing, and had NO reservations about running up in me rawdog, no rubber, skeenyweenie, no protection. I HAD the sense to say NO !!! I didn't want anymore kids, plus I didn't know where their dirty kawks had been the night before, the week before, etc. I thought to myself "If he is so willing to screw me without protection, how many others has he been with?" So, you see, not all of us are goldiggers who look to get knocked up by celebs; I coulda been CHILLIN' right now with superstar 1 or superstar 2's kid...but I had MYSELF to think about...and I proudly went back to my ordinary life and ordinary job with my dignity, health, and uterus intact. RIP Gerald and Sean, much love and prayers to the Leverts.

wow this is really sad and my heart goes out t the leverts for this horrible loss. as for all the negatives comments posted about the baby moms he should have paid his child support. i am a working mom with 2 kids and my daughters father is a deadbeat dad. he paid me 100 dollars a month for 10 years i finally went to court and got an increase. i am not a goldigger but damn you do have to take care of your kids. i had my son last year and am about to marry his dad in june so of course he dad says hes not paying for my wedding. sorry to bust his damn bubble but a hundred dollars dont help with shit.Basically help with ur kids and dont get salty when the other party moves on stoppin hatin on her cause she wanted or they wanted help with their kids. i am sure he was a good guy but good guy dont pay the rent. rip levert

@shi u know of me, not about me. u so quick 2 judge me, it sounds like to me u r 1 of those rejected ass bitches that gets a kick out of being down at child support. momma's baby daddy maybe. if u think i give 2 shits a fuckk about some rejected ass woman tryin' to get redemption on being a silly, lazy ass trick then u truly have me fucked up. i would rather have a man cooking, cleaning, spending time with my child (by the way i only have 1 11 yr old and i am still with my hubby) rather than trying to hunt him down for 40-90/week. and if you have to hunt a man down, then that should let u know how u stood with him off rip. u need 2 prepare yourself for when your child grows up and ask about daddy, then what u gone say i was at the club got fucked and had u. sounds like to me if you worrying about being a good parent, keep your ass out the club looking 4 yo baby daddy and put more emphasis on getting an education or better yet take your trifalen ass 2 work like the rest of women do. stop trying to take advantage of welfare, child support, etc and get a real job and life. just like he had choices the woman does to 1-abortion or 2-swallow. dont need condoms i'm married and my honey actually wanted my child so....

I think Mr. Levert should be ashamed of the way he treated his son in his final days. Mr. Levert has been a millionaire since the seventies and could have easily paid the 80,00 and the judge would have settled for 40,000. Instead his son died in a prison handcuffed to a hospital bed with a prison guard as his last image to look at before he died, no family no friends, just like a common criminal. I don't care what kind of relationship Mr. Levert had with his son and what kind of tough love he wanted to teach him, his son was too soft to handle prison and he should have paid the money period no excuses. Imagine that Mr. Levert a millionaire had to go to the jail morgue to identify his son in a orange prison jumpsuit in handcuffs with his inmate number. In this case I blame his father for a not teaching him to be a man and take responsibility for his children and pay for them and b not standing up for him in court when it counted as father and getting him out of the legal mess he got into. This is a case when "keeping it real" goes wrong, and all the money in the world can't fix that when he takes off his $40,000 Rolex and jewlery everynight that he could have had his son alive and out of prison. Mr. Levert is at fault for this one, I have seen parents mortgage their homes to keep their kids out of jail.

Some of you really need to respect the family and not use this particular forum to vent about your own "baby momma drama!" Let's keep in mind a man lost his life and a family is grieving. I pray that all of the people that are speaking negatively will not have to endure people speaking crap about you and yours at your family funeral!!!! R.I.P. Sean and Gerald.

Let me just say my heart and condolences go out to the Levert family. To lose two people in less than a year is heartrbeaking. My prayers go out to them. R.I.P Gerald and Sean. Secondly, we know we can be ignorant sometimes. By we I mean the comments above. Jail,the media, nor his baby mama/wife killed this man. He had health issues that were clearly not being addressed while he was in jail because if im not mistaken, they take your meds from you when you go in, depending on where he was. Im sure stress also played a role. So let's not go blaming outside sources for this man's death. Because if you believe in GOD it was simply his time to go.

D@MN, D@MN, D@MN.. Words can not express how hurt the family is right now! Ok thats out of the way.... Children have to eat and have a place to sleep everyday, not just when daddy decides to send a little change to his baby's mama, its unfortunate that he died while the law was forcing him to take care of his responsibilies...AIN'T NO GOOD GONNA COME TO ANY PARENT NOT PAYING THEIR CHILD SUPPORT.

@MZNAN33, FIRST OF ALL, I DON'T WANT TO KNOW YOU! YOUR NOT MY TYPE OF CROWD. 2ND, YES I AM A SINGLE PARENT OF ONE. I WORK 40 HOURS A WEEK, I HAVE NEVER BEEN ON WELFARE! MY SON IS AN HONOR ROLL STUDENT! SO THAT JUST GOES TO SHOW YOU, I'M NOT LAZY! MY SON'S FATHER NEVER GAVE ME A DIME, SO THAT'S WHY I HAD TO PUT HIM ON CHILD SUPPORT. I THINK YOUR'ER BEING INSENSITIVE TO OTHER WOMEN. I ACTUALLY THOUGHT YOU WERE A MAN WITH YOUR COMMENTS. ANYWAY, I STILL THINK YOUR'ER IGNORANT!

@shi I wish u would stop. it sounds like u r tryin' 2 pick my brain, it won't work. as far as me being a man (so u thought), it's the same thing like u pickin' your baby daddy you thought... I'm not big on women who make the excuses that you have made in your last couple of posting. if i lost my job or him, well that's what happens you adapt. fortunately i have a college degree so things like that don't bother me, i didn't think at 1st it was necessary to obtain a degree, but after exhausting all of my possibilites (depending on a man, living with family, etc) i did what was best for myself. I don't use my child as an excuse, nor do I use her as a paycheck. the people in the courts don't care about you, all they are worried about is there % of your check. they don't care. how can u one minute look at that man in a loving, sexual way, then the next want his body delivered to the dept. of corrections? it sounds like you know u made a mistake and instead of standing up and being a woman and a mother, you in fact sound like a coward. this economy is one step from a recession, we all are facing something we aren't familiar with. welfare (it was originally called mother's pension during the war and they only received $11/month) and child support only re-gress the black family, not progress. but as long as we have individuals that use it as a crutch it will still exsist. i won't feel sorry just because i knew that i had other options and i refuse to lead my life the way that someone else wants me to. had u ever thought maybe he can't provide in a monetary way, but maybe its something or some other way he could? does he have a wife or another baby mama that he's with? its something 'cause you sound bitter and angry? how r u gone grow if u can't let go? if u do get support that's must b how u r coping with the fact, that he didn't want u but that doesn't say anything 4 your child. by know u should've found another companion and moved on. god didn't put u on this earth 2 punish your baby daddy, he hasn't given u anything u can't handle you just choose to believe it. maybe u should petition the court to have supervised visitation. just 'cause he hasn't been there, don't mean he can't now. don't put a question mark where god put a period. u need to put your feelings aside and worry about your child's. u got 2 know him (and now u don't), y can't your child get to know him. its gone back fire on you once that child is older and has his or her own family. u r the mother but eventually they are gone want to know the father, and wonder y u kept them from him. after all is said and done, now they believe that sean may have been killed by the jailers. he ultimately may have lost his life over $$$$$. i hope that his family can find peace and cope with their loss. as far as his children goes, i just think that its not fair to them that now they will never b able 2 speak to him again, play with him, or experience something that money can't buy and that's the love of a father. "1 slip or ignorance of the law could send them back to slavery" this is quote from a book in regards to free blacks during slavery that wanted to be free and either attend school or wanted to live their lives away from the slave master. they could b free but if they were caught w/o their free papers, or if the whites wanted to lie and say they wasn't free then they automatically was sent back to slavery. they didn't have options, but we do. we should stick together as a whole, because they way the economy is going we may be one step away from being like our ancestors. slaves were looked at as an economic gain, blacks worked hard for cheap, whites couldn't produce the amount supply like blacks, and the indians couldn't either or it would have exterminated their race. just 'cause they abolished slavery (well the president signed the bill to allow that for another 25 years), doesn't mean we aren't still feeling the effects. the black family back then had no choice but to stay together, it was either slavery, be sold and broke up, or death. (From Slavery to Freedom by John Franklin and Alfred Moss). u should pick up a copy and read it, when you get done and see how we were treated you may look at life in a different perspective.

@mznan33, I THINK WE SHOULD AGREE TO DISAGREE. I KNOW THERE ARE ALOT OF DEADBEAT PARENTS OUT THERE THAT DON'T CARE ABOUT THERE CHILDREN. THE FACT STILL REMAINS THAT THOSE SINGLE PARENTS ARE STRUGGLING JUST TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE. AND I UNDERSTAND YOUR VIEW POINT. BUT, HOW MANY OTHER PEOPLE THINK LIKE YOU?? AT FIRST I WAS BITTER BUT I'M SO OVER MY SON'S FATHER, AS A MATTER OF FACT, HE WANTS ME BACK, BUT BECAUSE HE WASN'T THERE PHYSICALLY FOR HIS SON OR FINICIALLY, OR NOT EVEN A PHONE CALL, I HAVE NO LOVE FOR HIM AT ALL. ANYWAY, HE NEEDS TO PERFORM A MIRICLE FOR ME TO TAKE HIM BACK. THERE WAS NO SUPPORT AT ALL! SO I THINK CHILD SUPPORT FORCES A MAN TO BE A MAN.

@shi so u think 'cause i'm married its not hard? u r lookin' at the glass 1/2 full. don't get my confidence confused with reality. we made a child, and we (as adults) will take care of her (whether its financially, physically, etc.). there wasn't a court there when we conceived her, and there won't be a court there 2 tell me how 2 raise her. i don't look 4 pitty from no one, my main goal is 2 raise her (whether he's here physically or not) 2 the best of my abilities. its gone b times we won't have money for bills, food, clothes, etc. that doesn't mean its a fault of mines or his, that's just life. in my case i'm just glad that all the men who could've been her daddy, i was able 2 shovel through their shit and find someone who wanted 1-me, 2-our baby, and 3-our family. the 1st commandement "though shall not put another god before me", don't get caught up with him wanting u back, or performing a miracle, u chose him 2 b the DAD. so what he hasn't been there u will b suprised how much a few minutes, hours, or days he spends with your child (away from u) would make a difference in your baby life. unless u like having power over him, or getting the money to say just 'cause, 4-get the past and concentrate on the future (whether u like it or not he's the baby daddy he's always gone b a part of your future 4 the baby sake at least. 1st time is a mistake, 2nd time is intentional; don't get caught up in sex, or listening 2 kitty boo-boo excuses. worry about your child 1st, god put you in this situation and god will take care of it. u may have worried about food, bills, etc but i bet u ate maybe not what u wanted but u ate.
