Usher - who is part owner of Cleveland Cavaliers and is also involved with several restaurants - might add real estate to his list of non-musical ventures. If Usher buys the Lower East Side apartment, he isn't even planning on moving in. The New York Daily News reports that he's looking to rent the condo for $25,000 per month.
