MTV reports that Usher’s stepson Kyle Glover had been tubing with a friend in Atlanta when they were hit by a man on a jet ski. Hit singer and former Extreme Makeover: Home Edition participant Usher has remained close to his stepson since his separation from celebrity hairstylist Tameka Foster. This accident has surely shaken up both the singer and his former flame. Keep reading for more details about the accident.
A tragic accident often forces estranged couples to briefly forget their problems and focus on those of the victim. This is certainly the case with Tameka Foster’s son and Usher’s stepson Kyle Glover. After spending a weekend in the hospital following a jet-ski collision, the 11-year-old boy has been declared brain dead. According to one report, no brain activity had been reported since Kyle entered the hospital on Friday.
Both Usher and Tameka Foster were at the hospital to hear the sad news. Tameka arrived at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta shortly after her son was flown in and has not left Kyle’s side since then. Usher reportedly arrived at the hospital late Saturday night. The family has not announced a decision as to whether Kyle should remain on life support. No matter which route they take, it surely will not be an easy decision.
Family, friends and fans all around the world have been busy sending thoughts and prayers to the family via Twitter and Facebook. That support surely will be essential as the family tries to get through the next few days.
