Usher is MIA at Cavaliers’ games
IndyStar.Com wonders has Usher been shown the door by the Cleveland Cavaliers? The Grammy-winning R&B artist, who said “I look for Cleveland to be my home away from home” when he became a minority owner last year, has not attended a home game this season. On top of that, his hit song “Yeah” is no longer blasted inside Quicken Loans Arena, and perhaps more telling, Usher does not appear in the club’s media guide along with principal owners Dan Gilbert, Gordon Gund and David Katzman.
It’s as if Usher, known for his slick dance moves and smooth persona, has disappeared — at least from the NBA spotlight. What’s more, both the Cavaliers and Usher’s camp have little to say on the matter of his absence. Simone Smalls, Usher’s publicist, responded to questions from The Associated Press in an e-mail Friday.
“Usher is still a minority owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers and remains very active in building the brand,” she said. The Cavaliers did not immediately respond to a request to explain Usher’s role with the club.
