Doctors treating Usher'S WIFE {TAMEKA FOSTERhave confirmed she suffered a heart attack moments before she was due to undergo a liposuction procedure.
The R&B star's partner was being anaesthetised prior to the "simple" procedure at the Sao Rafael Hospital, Brazil on Friday (06Feb09) when she went in to cardiac arrest.
Foster was then "revived in less than a minute by heart massage", Ellen Dastry, spokeswoman for plastic surgeon Silvio Sterman, tells the Associated Press.
She was then placed into an induced coma before being transferred into an intensive care unit "to avoid unnecessary complications", adds Dastry.
Foster is currently recovering in Sao Paulo's Sirio-Libanes Hospital and "is doing very well".
Usher pulled out of Grammy weekend celebrations to be with his wife at the hospital following her health scare.
