Usher’s Stepson Declared Brain Dead after Sustaining Head Injury from Jet Ski Accident

Usher is reportedly distressed after his 11-year-old stepson, Kile Glover, from his estranged wife Tameka Foster, was declared brain dead following a jet ski accident last Saturday.

Kile is currently in an Atlanta hospital after he was struck in the head by a 38-year-old man while he and a 15-year-old companion were being pulled along in an inner tube by a speed boat in Lake Lanier.

The young boy was unresponsive since he was taken out of the water until present, according to authorities. Apparently, the boy’s head injury was severe and life threatening.

Since Kile was admitted to the hospital, no brain activity has been observed from the young boy, which prompted doctors to declare that Kile is brain dead. Nevertheless, the family of the young boy was said to be yet undecided whether or not to take off the life support from him.

Kile’s mother, Tameka was out of town when the accident happened. Therefore, Usher had to charter a plane for Tameka just to bring the boy’s mother at his side.

Celebrity news report said that despite the bitter divorce that Usher and Tameka went through, as well as their custody battle over their two kids, Usher V and Naviyd, Usher had maintained his close relationship with Kile.

For Usher, Kile has nothing to do with his situation with Tameka, according to a reliable source.  Usher loves the boy too much; therefore, the singer is now torn up.

Usher and Tameka were married in 2009 and after a couple of years, they both decided to part ways. Nevertheless, Usher still arrived at the hospital to comfort his estranged wife and definitely to see Kile as well. Usher raised Kile like his own son during their time of marriage.

Any injury caused to the brain and head will definitely be disastrous. A brain or head injury might cause paralysis or in worst cases, death. Victims of such head injury caused by the negligence of someone who in one way or another has been careless or unmindful are entitled to make a demand and file for a claim, said a Los Angeles injury attorney.
