I had just written about Sean Levert’s incarceration for failing to pay child support for his three c children. News has broken a short time ago saying that he died at a local hospital after not feeling well in his jail cell. He was being held for 22 months for failing to pay over $85,000 in child support for the children.

The cause of Sean Levert’s, 39, death was not immediately known. He was a member of the R&B group LeVert with his late brother Gerald Levert and Marc Gordon. Gerald Levert died Nov. 10, 2006 at the age of 40. Sean Levert had recently completed an album with Gordon, sources said.

This is a real shame and the fact that he did not take care of his children is horrible. If this is not a case of bad luck for Eddie Levert, I don’t know what is. I pray that he will find strength in this time of grief. The bottom line is that if you have kids, do the right thing by them. Play your role as a father. Now his kids have lost him for the rest of their lives. Shame, a real shame.
