Usher’s Stepson Declared Brain Dead

Posted By: Honey German · 7/9/2012 12:32:00 PM


Usher‘s 11-year-old stepson Kile Glover was declared brain dead on Sunday night at an Atlanta Hospital.

The boy, who is the son of Usher’s estranged wife Tameka Foster, was struck by a jet ski Friday while he was inner tubing on Lake Lanier in Georgia.

He has been in critical condition at Children’s Healthcare at Egelston Hospital in Atlanta, where he had been air-lifted to, sources report that he has experienced no brain activity since he was admitted.

“He’s bad,” Tameka told RadarOnline about her son. Sources say that no decision had been made about whether or not to remove the boy from life support.

The devastated mother also posted on her Facebook page about her son’s accident:

“Kyle, You are strong.. You’ll be saved I know it. I love you my baby. I need all #Prayers for my son! thanks you everybody!”

TMZ reports that an investigation is underway to determine how the boating accident occurred, but could take months to complete.  Authorities have already met with driver of the jet ski and have ruled out alcohol as a factor in the crash, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Although they have not been together since 2009 and are going through a nasty divorce, Usher is said to have chartered a private jet to fly Foster to her son’s side where he later met her on Saturday night.

Our prayers go out to Tameka and Usher.
