Usher’s 11-year-old stepson has died today. Kyle Glover passed away this morning from the injuries he obtained in a tragic jet ski accident in Georgia earlier this month, according to TMZ.

The young boy was reportedly taken off life support by doctors, who determined that he would not recover from his injuries.

The website reports that Glover’s mother and Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Foster is said to have grappled with the difficult decision to disconnect the life support, and is said to be understandably ‘devastated.’

Kyle was struck in the head during a jet ski collision while riding an inner tube on Lake Lanier in Atlanta, Georgia, earlier this month.


According to authorities, a family friend who was riding a jetski behind the pontoon lost control and collided with Glover’s tube.

Kyle was with an unidentified 15-year-old girl at the time and both children were airlifted to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston.

He was later declared brain dead.

A friend of the family, 38-year-old Jeffrey S. Hubbard, was allegedly operating the jet ski at the time of the collision. 


Sergeant Mike Burgamy of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources said: ‘A pontoon was pulling the two adolescents on an inner tube, and the personal water craft went over the top of them.’

He added about the driver: ‘He was interviewed, and it’s possible he may be reinterviewed.’

Last week Kyle’s family asked for prayers as they keep a bedside vigil following the tragic accident.

Kyle’s family said in a statement to CNN: ‘We know God’s in control, and are leaning on our faith in Him and His word at this most difficult time.

‘We firmly believe in the power of prayer and ask that you all continue to pray and lift Kile up, as it’s the best way we can all support him now.’

Usher (real name: Usher Terry Raymond IV), 33, and Foster, who divorced in 2009 after two years of marriage, were in the throes of a bitter custody battle over their sons Usher Raymond V, four, and Naviyd, three.

But they are understood have put their differences in the wake of the devastating accident.
