Usher and his ex wife Tameka Foster were struck with a tragedy this past weekend, when their 11-year-old son was critically injured in a jet ski accident, and then declared brain dead. The singer and former Extreme Makeover: Home Edition participant is reportedly devastated over the accident, and the investigation into whether or not a friend caused the accident is still going on. Read on for the latest scoop on this tragic story…
After the tragic accident that left Usher’s stepson brain dead, the hit singer is reportedly devastated over the news. According to the Daily News, a source close to the singer said: “He grew close to Kyle and, of course, that has nothing to do with the situation with Tameka. He loved Kyle. This is a terrible, awful tragedy. Usher is torn up.”
Usher, who has been in a bitter custody battle with his ex wife, Tameka Foster, is now standing by her side. Another source told US Weekly: “Tameka and Usher don’t get along, but in this circumstance Usher is coming to her side. Usher practically raised Kyle as his own. He’s known him for seven years. It is so sad what happened.”
Meanwhile, authorities are investigating the cause of the accident, in which a family friend may be involved. Authorities say that 38-year-old family friend Jeffrey S. Hubbard was operating the jet ski, and he was interviewed, but he may be interviewed again. “I don’t know what’s going to happen with the 11-year-old,” Sgt. Mike Burgamy of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources told US Weekly, adding: “We’re going to have to see what his condition is going to be before we present findings of the case.”
All of our thoughts and prayers go out to Usher and Tameka at this time!
