NEWS: Top Singer Usher’s Step-Son Declared Brain Dead After Jet-Ski Accident

[UPDATE]

We’re sad to report that Usher‘s 11-year old stepson has died from injuries suffered in a jetski accident in Georgia earlier this month.

Kyle Glover sustained severe head injuries when an inner tube he was being pulled in on Lake Lanier was hit by a man on a jetski. Kyle had been on life support, with no sign of brain activity since the July 8th accident.

TMZ is reporting that his mother, Tameka Foster, made the agonizing decision to take her son off of life support after it was determined the injuries were too severe to overcome.

Our prayers go out to Tameka, Usher and their families during this difficult time.

[PREVIOUSLY]

Usher‘s 11-year old stepson has been declared brain dead by an Atlanta Hospital two days after being involved in a Jet-Ski accident.

11 Alive News is reporting that Kyle Glover, the son of Usher’s estranged wife, Tameka Foster, was in an inner tube on Lake Lanier being pulled by a boat when a 38-year old man riding a jet ski struck him.

Both Kyle and a 15-year old girl who was also in the inner tube were seriously injured.

TMZ reports that Kyle was hit in the head and unresponsive when pulled from the water.

Both victims were life-flighted to Children’s Healthcare at Egelston Hospital.

Despite the fact that he is going through a divorce from Foster, Usher chartered a plane for Tameka, who was out of town, so she could be by her son’s side.

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources is investigating the accident.

DNR Sgt. Mike Burgamy says it is too early to tell if any charges will be filed, and that alcohol was not a factor in the accident
