Usher’s Stepson Kile Glover, 11, Dies


Our hearts go out to Tameka Foster and Usher.

The singer’s 11-year-old stepson, Kile Glover, died Saturday morning after he was taken off life support, TMZ reports. It was determined he would not recover from the injuries he suffered after a July 6 boating accident. Tameka struggled greatly with the decision to take her son off life support, and on Friday, she tweeted the above photo of her son.

Reportedly, Kile was declared brain dead after being struck in the head by a jet ski while riding an inner tube on Lake Lanier, in Atlanta, GA. According to ABC News, 38-year-old Jeffrey S. Hubbard, a friend of the family, was operating the jet ski and is currently under investigation.

Kile was riding with an unidentified 15-year-old girl at the time of the accident. Both were airlifted to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, and Kile was registered with no brain activity. The girl suffered a broken arm and cut on her head.

At the time of the accident, Usher and Tameka were in a bitter custody battle over their sons Usher Raymond V, 4, and Naviyd, 3. However, the divorced couple put their differences aside to support each other during this difficult time.

Our deepest condolences go out to the Foster-Raymond family.

        I don’t but that is why faith is important because if you do believe that then you will find peace.

    You know, he had an actual father who was involved in his life. How about we send out condolences to him and not worry so much about the stepfather who was around only a couple of years before dumping mom and moving on? I’m sure he had feelings for the little boy, but he wasn’t the child’s dad; he actually had one of those although you’d never know it from the coverage.

      How can you say for sure that he dumped her and moved on? For all you know, it was her fault, or mutual. And while I do feel badly for the son’s bio father, he is not a celebrity and this is a site for celebrities.
