Usher’s 11-year-old stepson, Kile Glover, has died of injuries sustained in a jet ski accident earlier this month in Atlanta, Georgia, according to TMZ. 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. 

The accident occured on July 8th, when Glover ”“ the son of Usher’s ex-wife, Tameka Foster ”“ was struck while riding in an inner tube in Atlanta’s Lake Lanier. At press time, there was no official confirmation from Usher or Raymond on Glover’s passing. 

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.”
