Last week we learned that Usher and his ex wife Tameka were struck with tragedy, as 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 has been torn up over the devastating news, but will he help keep his stepson alive? What do we mean? Read on for the scoop!
After the tragic accident that left Usher’s stepson brain dead, Usher’s ex wife, Tameka Foster, is reportedly dealing with insurance issues as her son remains on life support. According to TMZ, Tameka will only be able to keep Kyle on life support as long as her insurance pays for it, because she does not have the funds to pay for it on her own. The insurance company reportedly told Tameka that they will only pay for a couple months at most – will Usher step up and help out?
Usher supposedly loves Kyle as his own son, but as of right now, he has not offered Tameka any financial support. Usher has been by Tameka’s side during this tragic time and has been very supportive, but the gossip site claims that Tameka does not see him as a viable financial option. Even though doctors have told Usher and Tameka that Kyle is brain dead, Tameka is not giving up hope that her son will make a complete recovery. Tameka has told friends that she believes in miracles, but that hope may be ruined if the insurance chooses to pull the plug on Kyle.
Should Usher help out financially if Tameka needs it? What do you think? Comment and share your thoughts with us below!
