I stell don't know but my family claims Usher is our cousin because my cousin is named Terry Raymond and he had like 12 kids and Usher was one of them.Usher do look like me and my cousins from the westside of Chicago.If this is true Usher daddy which was my cusion died back in 1998 over a drug overdose.My family allways talk about when Usher grandmother talk about finding her son dead in his room because of the hard drugs he was doing and what happened was she wokeup and found him dead bleeding to death in his room.My cousin had a lot of wifes and treated them all bad.They say he treated Usher mother so bad she had to move and get away from Chicago.
