Usher Reveals His Son Battles Diabetes

Usher had an emotional moment during an interview with The Voice host Carson Daly. Why? Because the R&B singer revealed that one of his sons has been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. The condition, while not fatal, requires constant management and poses significant health risks if not treated properly.

Usher says the past year has been “particularly rough” for him. “I lost my grandmother, my son was diagnosed as being a type one diabetic. It has definitely been a difficult one for me, man,” he told Daly.

The singer has not revealed which of his two boys is suffering from the blood sugar disease. He is father to six-year-old Usher Raymond V and five-year-old Naviyd, from his marriage to stylist Tameka Foster.

The Grammy winner said he spends a lot of his spare time reading up on his son’s dietary requirements to ensure he is staying healthy, even when he’s on the set of The Voice.
