Usher’s Stepson Declared Brain Dead

Usher‘s 11-year-old stepson Kile Glover was declared brain dead Sunday night (July 8). The boy, whose mother is Usher’s estranged wife Tameka Foster, was struck by a jet ski Friday while inner tubing on Lake Lanier in Georgia. On Saturday, he was in critical condition at Children’s Healthcare at Egelston Hospital in Atlanta, where he and a 15-year-old female companion, also seriously injured, had been air-lifted, though sources report he experienced no brain activity since being admitted.

TMZ reports that an investigation is underway to determine how the boating accident occurred, but could take months to complete. Authorities remain in contact with the driver of the jet ski and have already ruled out alcohol as a factor in the crash, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Though their marriage ended in 2009, Usher reportedly hired a plane to fly Foster to her son. Both parents are now at his side. They have two children together: four-year-old Usher Raymond V and three-year-old Naviy.
