Usher may be all smiles on TV but the superstar and father of two revealed that he’s been going through a lot behind closed doors. During an interview on the “TODAY” show this week, the “Confessions” singer said the past 12 months has been the most difficult time of his life.
“This year has been really one of my hardest years,” he shared. “I lost my grandmother, my son was diagnosed as being a type one diabetic. It has definitely been a difficult one for me.”

“The Voice” judge went on to say that he does everything possible to make sure his son, who suffers from Type 1 Diabetes, is healthy and sticking to his dietary requirements. “Sometimes you’re looking at me and we’re off camera, and I’m online looking at numbers, trying to make sure he’s eating properly. It’s crazy,” he said.
According the American Diabetes Association, in type 1 diabetes “the body does not produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. With the help of insulin therapy and other treatments, even young children can learn to manage their condition and live long, healthy lives.”
