Tameka Foster was revived at Brazilian hospital

Usher's wife suffered heart attack before liposuction operation
Tameka Foster, the wife of R&B singer Usher, suffered a heart attack after going under anesthetic to have liposuction in Brazil.

Usher cancelled his appearance at last week's Grammys and rushed to be with his wife, who had checked into the Sao Rafael Hospital for the procedure.

Foster, 37, went into cardiac arrest but was revived by heart massage less than a minute after suffering the attack.

She was placed into an induced coma and moved to intensive care. She was then transferred to Sirio-Libanes Hospital in Sao Paolo for recovery, reports the Associated Press.

Foster, a stylist, married Usher in 2007. The pair have two children - two-month-old Naveid Ely Raymond and Usher Raymond V, 15 months.
