Tameka Foster Speaks Out About Son Kile’s Death & Custody Battle With Usher

Usher's stepson critically injured in boating accident

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.

    i truly am sorry that tameka, and all of kile’s family who have lost an innocent young child. i do not wish that pain on anyone.

    however – playing victim because of this situation, is sick. it’s well known that she’s been trying to keep those two boys from usher, making all kinds of accusations against him, etc. i would think that after losing a son so young, that she would be exceptionally grateful for the children she has that are still with her on this earth. and that she would be the bigger person, learn from past mistakes and put the ridiculous court battle with usher to an end.

    and the same goes for him. this woman just lost her child. do whatever needs to be done, stop the ridiculous child-like behavior and do right by those boys.

      She’s not PLAYING a victim, you fool, she IS a victim of her child’s death.

      And it is not “well known” you fool, it is what the media puts out there. Since when, in this day and age, does that make it TRUE?

      I’m sure these two will settle their problems in their own way, and aren’t looking for advice from an internet hag.

    If she was so sad she would do everything in her power to make sure their children know each parent loves and will take care of them. Not by taking the father to court and sucking him dry. She is a gold digger his mom was absolutely right about her.

    Tameka Foster is a gold digger. Always has been, always will be. Everyone, including Usher’s mom, has said so since he first started dating her. Everyone but Usher knew that the marriage would not last because she clearly only wanted his fame and money. She just lost one of her children in a tragic accident and yet the only thing on her mind is getting more money out of Usher. And make no mistake, this custody battle is not about her wanting to be with the kids more. It’s about her knowing that being primary custodial parent will help her get millions of dollars of support from Usher. If I had just lost one of my beloved children, I’d still be curled up in a ball, broken, devastated, and unable to think of anything other than my gutting grief. A legal battle would be the very last thing I would have the strength to deal with. Tameka doesn’t appear to be grieving at all and if she is, her grief is nonetheless taking a backseat to her greed and pride. Tameka and her minions will no doubt come onto this thread and argue her case. (I strongly suspect that Tameka wrote the angry post above) And in that non-classy way that people like her are known for, she will call people names and try to paint herself as a victim but she is no victim. She’s using the death of her child to try to rush her agenda through the court system, banking on sympathy to give her the upper hand. That is twisted and I can only hope that the judge will see her for what she is and decide the case based on that which is truly best for the children and not that which is best for the so-called “grieving” mother. I think the judge should refuse to decide the case one way or the other until both parents complete several months of intense family counseling and prove that they are mature enough to handle their differences without involving or harming the children. This public pissing match needs to end.

      How do you know this? I can’t imagine any mother who wouldn’t be grieving the loss of their child so soon after a death. Your post came off as bashing and making lots of assumptions about someone you don’t know (and I don’t either ftr). There is no reason to attack this woman right now… Usher has plenty of lawyers who can protect him.

      Also, considering that Kile was killed while he was vacationing with his father (Tameka’s Ex), it seems understandable that she would want her children under her supervision as much as possible at this point.

      You read a bunch of nonsense in some trashy magazine, repeat it, and then swear it’s true. I seriously hope you never consider a career in journalism.

      But you know what I had to comment here? Because you have NO IDEA how you would react if one of your kids were killed and how DARE you judge someone based on how YOU perceive that they are grieving? You are a disgusting human being and feel sorry for your “beloved children” and hope that if one of them is ever killed, that no one judges you for how you express or react to grief (even though you are gross and deserve a little public judgement).
