MediaTakeOut.com just got some stunning news. According to reporter Donna J. Miller from the Cleveland Daily News - Sean Levert was chained to a chair before his death. Here's the breaking report:
Sean Levert had been acting strangely at the Cuyahoga County Jail before he died, Warden Kevin McDonough said in a news release.
Levert was at the jail for five days, living among the "general population" there.
He then displayed "bizarre behavior" and was put in an observation cell Sunday night. He began shouting and pounding on the cell door, so guards put him in a restraint chair, "without resistance and for his own protection," McDonough said.
Levert's wrists were strapped to the chair and his feet were shackled to the floor. About 20 minutes later, he appeared "distressed" and was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The Sheriff's Office and County Coroner are investigating.
And there's more. MediaTakeOut.com just learned that the Levert family have asked the Federal Bureau Of Investigation to investigate the death of Sean as a POSSIBLE HOMICIDE.
I got an email from a relative of Sean Levert here it is below:
Hello, how are you doing, My name is Toya relative of Sean Levert, wanted to personally let you know that Sean Levert did not die in Jail, yet he was sent to the hospital and died one hour later(***) at Lutheran Hospital. Right now we (the family) are devastated by my uncle death, and we wish thank everyone for the prayers and the condolences. Thank You Once Again.
I JUST READ THAT ONLINE..DUNNO HOW TRUE IT IS..
I hope not.
Wow i read this like yesterday d amn MTO come on with these late azzz stories and the half azz make-up and break-up, o yea top 10 wow thats good " i think"
thats f-cked up, oh well *** happens.
oh my rip sean
That's sad. The stress of being in jail and the mishandling of his "bizarre behavior" probably put him over the top. God Bless his family and children
He was locked up for being behind in child support payments (about 800k?)
Had he paid child support he wouldn't have been in this predicament.
Let this be a lesson to you all...use condoms and pop them pills cause kids can kill.
So sad, another one lost.
4 u 2 get put in those restraint chairs u were causing an DISTRURBANCE that annoyed the deps. They forcifully put u in those chairs. Deps woill beat u down trhen put u in the chair. The warden excuse is extremely suspect. I smell a lawsuit. My man got beatdown by co's and sued ny. took him six years but he got paid. I bet the settle out of court.
It's still very sad, maybe he couldn't take being lock down like that and he just lost it. My payers go out to his family.
"***"...where r u (OH YEAH...THEY KNOW THEY HURT THAT MAN...THEY JUST TRYIN TO COVER THE Azzzzzz'S)
***LOKKIN FOR "***".....
RIP and my condolences to the fam. And this is gonna sound a bit insensitive, but his children will mos def get paid now. Its sad they had to lose their dad over the $s.
THIS IS JUST SO SAD. I KNEW SOMETHING JUST WASN'T RIGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING PERTAINING TO HIS DEATH.
I'm confused, how did the jailers kill him? By putting him in restraints? How would that kill someone?
Well if he took care of his kids he would never have been in that predicament even still RIP! He didn't deserve to die.
IDK...he was in jail for a mighty *** time before he died...I hope they find the reason behind his death so his family can have some justice....
i think he had a heart attack
That is messed up.
I got that same email Maddness. LOL
I am so sorry to hear of such tragic news...I believe the pressure of what was happening took a toll on him...stress is a #1 killer...however, men/women why do terrible things have to happen in order for us to learn our lessons...pay your child support..pay your bills/taxes...so we don't have to go through such drastic measures..
Love to the Levert Family....
Who? Let me google him.
Why am I not suprised?
@Oldenough.....when they restrain you they dont do it gently....they use enough force to cause death (usually 3-4 officers)....thier favorite technique is cuting off the airway---in order to totally dominate-causing cardiac arrest...
I'm not saying this is what happened....but it does happen often...quite often...
That is so sad....
MY HEART GO'S OUT TO EDDIE..ITS GOT TO BE HARD TO LOSE BOTH YOUR SONS..
that was such an insensitive thing to write. shoulda, coulda, woulda, he did not deserve to die like that. my prayers to the Levert Family
LEVERT FAMILY **INVESTIGATE!***
HOT NEW URBAN NOVEL.."GAME LIKE HONEY"
STEP YOUR GAME UP..RELEASE YOUR SWAGGA
FOR THE FIRST THREE PEOPLE WHO LOGGED ON; WHO CARES IF WHO'S FIRST!!! STICK TO THE DAM SUBJECT, PLEASE COMMENT ON THE TOPIC!!! ANYWAY THIS IS VERY SAD NEWS, MY PRAYERS TO THE FAMILY!
I agree that was insensitive but it is true (maybe not the last sentence)
I dont get where jailers may have killed him.
if you are acting a certain way while in jail they put you in the chair.
sorry that he did not make it, but that is the procedure at a jail unless he has a reported physical or mental ailment.
My prayers are with the entire Levert family...
I wonder how the mother of his children is holding up. Blessings to the entire family especially Papa Levert. He lost two children in a year. Godd Bless.
I AM STILL SAD ABOUT THIS BUT LEVERT FAMILY STAY STRONG AND MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU
I can't take this. I feel so bad for Eddie!
People need to digest this shocking news first before drawing any conclusions. Gerald died from OTC and prescription drugs so wait and see what Sean died from. They said he was halllucinating. Being $85,000 behind in child support, his money was going somewhere.
The fact is there is a family/ fans in great pain . NO matter what his reason was for being in jail(Not that I think it's cool to be a dead beat either) but nevertheless, if there was an mental/medical issue with him they should have seeked the appropriate help for him. Like ALWAYS... People w/ power/ authority wait til the last minute to react. Like ALWAYS they are a day late and a dollor ***! Think this is so sad.
***** This should be a wake up call, we( as a culture) are droppin like flies, and it's not always street related !!!
R.I.P Prayers go out to the Levert Family !
Can we get all the facts first before we start running off at the mouth...
THIS IS AWFUL DIDN'T GERALD JUST DIE LAST YEAR!!!!
god bless him and his Fam1ly!!!
High blood pressure, stress, police brutality.......sounds like a recipe for a stroke.
R.I.P. Sean Levert. May God bless Eddie Levert and his family during this difficult time of bereavement. Gerald and Sean will always live on in spirit through their music that gave to us.
they probably did. wouldnt be the first time.
It seems to me that Sean, died of some form a cardio infarction, most likely brought on by the rapid detoxification of what ever medication he was taking. That along with the stress of being in jail is what probably killed him. So sad. E.
so sad my prayer gose out to the family
He was not given his anxiety meds, which caused him to act out. He asked on several occasions he needed his meds for obvious reasons. While investigating they had him in a straight jacket which caused even more anxiety and there u have it. People in jail also take meds (toy cops).
What a difference in how they treat a BLACK MALE celebrity in jail versus a white, female, famous for NOTHing celebrity.When Paris Hilton was "distressed" in jail, they let her go home early! Remember???? What a loss.. I love this family.
I just hope that the family seeks an independent investigation because you certainly can't trust the police to do the right thing.
I wouldn't be surprised if this had some truth to it.
I am a nurse & it sounds like a blood clot either went to his lungs or to his brain.
I had a patient that started acting combative when I worked ICU. I called the doctor for a sedative. Next thing I knew she had flat lined & we had a Code Blue. Unfortunately she died. I learned that day, look at the bigger picture.
If the jail had something to do with it, they should be sued... but it still won't bring him back. I give my condolences to his family.
I heard about this yesterday too on the Steve Harvey Show on the radio. According to Gerald Levert's former bodyguard, he had an anxiety attack from being locked up.
Failure to pay child support WTF, what you gonna tell your kids?:
"Daddy died cause he couldn't afford y'all"
What a last memory to have of your father,so sad.
To all the fellas: Man up, some of y'all know you or somebody you know is ducking CSE (Child Support Enforcement). Coulda been you.
its sad that the dad outlived his own kids.
RIP SEAN LEVERT *** GERALD LEVERT
we all need to pray for this family....i know the father is devestated...two sons lost...rip sean and gerald levert.
I don't believe prisoners had anything to do with it. I think he died of complications associated with obesity.
That's Ohio for you, sh...is crazy!!
home of the smart sexy rich and crazy
I hope that isn't true, thats horrible.
this article is so informative. no wonder i would forward this to my friends i met them on a herpes dating site herpesmates.com, it is their own special community, many great people are seeking for friends and love there.
I dunno...i blame his family....communicating with your family is key and helping one another is essential for a tight family...don't let your peeps go down no matter what. Now we got another Meet the Browns situation here...nothing funny about this...i'm just sayin.
That has to be devastating to the family to lose two sons in a year. I don't know about the child support situation, but losing your child at any age is so sad...
I guess you dont recall that The Game plead Nolo to carrying a gun on school property and assulting an man. he got 60 days a served 8.
Uhh...the Cleveland paper is called the "Cleveland Plain Dealer", or just "The Plain Dealer", not the "Cleveland Daily News".
I am so saddened on another Levert death. May God bring some peace, comfort and closure to the Levert family....
No surprise here...
Killed him for what and over what???? I'm just shocked by all of this. Sean now leaves behind daughter, a grieving mother and father. I can't imagine the pain they're dealing with right now.
