Usher has fans all over the world looking for tickets to his concerts, but that doesn’t mean he can easily get front row seats at one of his kids’ shows.
While appearing on the Club Shay Shay podcast Wednesday, the singer told host Shannon Sharpe that her teenage sons don’t always like it when she attends their games or shows. He said they sometimes prefer to be “low-key.”
“My kids, sometimes they don’t want me to come. They don’t want me at their basketball games or shows,” he said. “They want to be very, very humble because they don’t want that energy.”
The U Don’t Have to Call singer said that he empathizes with his children who want him to keep a low profile but that it is difficult for him because he wants to be present at their events.
He said there were “countless” times he sat in the back of the room during events, and he would make himself “as small as possible.”
