Sean Levert

Sean Levert, the brother of late grammy award winning Gerald Levert, died of unknown causes this weekend.

Apparently the singer collapsed while serving time in the Cuyahoga County Jail. He was sentenced to jail for failing to pay an estimated $80,000 in child support.

The warden at the jail said Levert was rushed to the hospital late last night (Mar. 30) after suffering a medical emergency. He said Levert died at the hospital and that the jail was unaware of any illnesses he may have been suffering from.

Sean came from a family of talented singers. His father, Eddie Levert, is the lead singer of the 1970s soul group The O’Jays. And his brother, Gerald Levert, boasts a long list of accomplishments including a number of hit singles, producing music for other major artists and wooing audiences in the R&B group LSG with Keith Sweat and Johnny Gill.

Sean sang with his brother, Gerald Levert, and friend Marc Gordon in the R&B trio LeVert. The group was best known for the song “Casanova.”

Sean also appeared in a string of movies throughout his career, most notably New Jack City in 1991.

Sean LeVert was 39 years old at his time of death. The coroner is investigating the cause of his passing.
