Usher’s 11-year-old stepson Kyle Glover was declared brain dead on Sunday night, July 8. He was struck by a jet ski on Friday while inner tubing on Lake Lanier in Georgia. He was with a 15-year-old female who was seriously injured and air-lifted to the hospital.
According to TMZ, there’s an investigation underway to determine what exactly happened, though alcohol has apparently been ruled out.
Glover’s mother is Usher’s estranged wife Tameka Foster, with whom he has two children — four-year-old Usher Raymond V and three-year-old Naviv. He reportedly hired a plane to fly Foster out to be with her son. The boy is currently in critical condition at Children’s Healthcare at Egelston Hospital in Atlanta.
Foster, who is a mother of five, said on Facebook: “Kyle, You are strong … You’ll be saved I know it. I love you my baby. I need all #Prayers for my son! thanks you everybody! (sic)”
