Kyle Glover, 11-Year Old Stepson of Usher, Dies of Brain Injuries

Tragic news today for Usher and his estranged ex-wife, Tameka Foster:

Kyle Glover, Tameka's 11-year old son from a previous relationship, has been taken off life support and has passed away two weeks after suffering irreversible brain damage in a jet skiing accident.

Usher and Family

The fatal injury occurred on Lake Lanier in Atlanta on July 8, as Kyle was riding on an inner tube when he was struck by a passer-by in a jet ski. That individual is named Jeffrey S. Hubbard and is in under investigation for his actions.

Doctors quickly determined that Kyle was medically brain dead and he had been on life support in the hospital until this morning.

The tragedy took place while Usher and Foster were engaged in a contentious custody fight for the two kids they share. But that court battle has now taken a backseat to the sad circumstances surrounding Glover.

We send our thoughts and prayer to his family.

Some people have no type of compassion for this mother who just lost her son. Stories in the media contradict one another but at the end of the day her child passed away and no one should be saying hurtful things right now.
