The widow of R&B singer Sean Levert has won a $4 million settlement of a lawsuit over his 2008 death in an Ohio jail.
The agreement with Cuyahoga County and a jail medical services contractor was reached late Wednesday in Cleveland federal court. It includes no official admission of liability.
The 39-year-old Levert was jailed on March 24, 2008, after being sentenced for owing nearly $90,000 in child support. He died six days later and had been denied his prescribed anti-anxiety medication Xanax while he was held.
The coroner said Xanax withdrawal contributed to Levert's death.
The singer was a member of the 1980s R&B trio LeVert and the son of O'Jays lead vocalist Eddie Levert.
