Last month, Tameka Foster‘s 11-year-old son Kile Glover tragically passed away following a lake accident that rendered him brain-dead. Days after her son’s July 27th funeral, Tameka was back in court with ex-husband Usher to resume the on-going custody battle over their two sons Usher Raymond V, 4, and 3-year-old Naviyd.
“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the countless number of people who opened their hearts, extended their prayers, well-wishes and remained hopeful for my son Kile during the last weeks of his life,” wrote Tameka in a personal statement on GlobalGrind. “I truly believe that he has always been an Angel from birth and the World was just too small to contain a spirit so vast.”
“I’m thankful and blessed to merely be the vessel that carried him and humbled that God gave him to us to love,” she adds. “I also feel humbled by everyone’s show of concern, and knowing that Kile Glover touched the lives of so many has given me strength during my worst and darkest hour … Again I THANK YOU ALL!”
While Tameka and Usher briefly called a truce in the weeks between Kile’s tragic accident and death, they returned to court earlier this week
“Sadly, I remain in the unfortunate position of having to respond to and attend court proceedings that were not initiated or begun by me,” Tameka says. “I did not file this custody case (January 2011) and was content with the ‘joint custody’ arrangement that we share. Most importantly, nor do I wish to appear in court while I am mourning the loss of my son.”
“I have only been defending myself and protecting the best interests of my children through my counsel,” she continues.
