Usher's father passes...

My condolences go out to Usher and his family on the loss of his father. His father passed on Friday, January 18th. The Confessions singer - full name Usher Raymond IV - is reported to have been by his father Usher Raymond III's side when he passed away at an Atlanta, Georgia hospital. The cause of death is currently unknown.
The star was joined by his wife Tameka and his mother Jonetta Patton at Raymond III bedside, according to Sources.
Patton split from Raymond III shortly after Usher was born. Raymond III struggled with a long-running addiction to crack cocaine, but managed to keep in touch with the singer throughout his personal troubles.
