USHER’S STEPSON DIES AFTER BEING TAKEN OFF LIFE SUPPORT
Usher’s 11-year-old stepson, Kile Glover, has died three weeks after sustaining injuries in a horrific jet ski accident on Lake Lanier in Georgia on July 8th. Initial reports indicated the decision had been made to remove Kile from life support. Family members insist that’s not the case. They say that Kile was removed from life support only after suffering heart failure. Glover, who had been declared brain dead after the accident, died on Saturday morning after doctors removed him from life support, determining that his injuries were too severe to overcome.
Glover – the son of Usher’s ex-wife, Tameka Foster – was struck while riding in an inner tube in Atlanta’s Lake Lanier. There is no official confirmation yet from Usher or Raymond on Glover’s passing. So far, no plans for a memorial have been made public. Celebrity friends of Usher and his ex-wife, Tameka Raymond, sent their condolences via Twitter on Saturday. “My heart and prayers are with Tameka & Usher and their families. I’m sorry for your lost, I’m here for both of you. From my family to yours,” wrote Toni Braxton. Added Eric Benet, “Sending my deepest condolences to Usher and Tameka Raymond..and to family and friends of Kile Glover #RIPKile.”
