  • Usher's stepson Kyle Glover, 11, has been left brain dead following a jet ski accident

    Usher is reportedly ‘torn up’ after his stepson was declared brain dead following a jet ski accident on Friday.

    Us Weekly has reported that 33-year-old Yeah singer was close to his stepson Kyle Glover, 11, from previous marriage to Tameka Foster and is devastated by the news.

    ‘He grew close to Kyle and, of course, that has nothing to do with the situation with Tameka,’ a source told Us Weekly. ‘He loved Kyle. This is a terrible, awful tragedy. Usher is torn up.’

    Kyle was struck in the head by a jet ski on Friday afternoon while riding an inner tube on Lake Lanier in Atlanta with a 15-year-old girl who suffered a broken arm and cut on the head. According to MTV news, the driver of the jet ski was family friend Jeffrey S.Hubbard.


    Despite the shaky relationship between Usher and Tameka, they have put their differences aside during this tragic time as its been confirmed that Kyle has had no brain activity since he was admitted to hospital.

    ‘Tameka and Usher don’t get along, but in this circumstance Usher is coming to her side,’ a source told Us magazine. ‘Usher practically raised Kyle as his own. He’s known him for seven years. It is so sad what happened.’
