Usher's 11-year-old stepson Kile Glover dies after being taken off life support following severe jet ski accident

Usher's 11-year-old stepson Kile Glover, with the R&B star and his former wife Tameka Foster, has died following a severe jet ski accident earlier this month
This news totally breaks my heart. I feel so sad for Usher and his ex-wife. In the same vain, I can only imagine the pain and regret the family friend who collided with him will be feeling.

Usher's 11-year-old stepson has died, two weeks after the child was critically injured in a boating accident.
Kile Glover passed away on Saturday morning from the injuries he obtained after being run over on July 6 by a personal watercraft on Lake Lanier, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the young boy, whose mother is Usher's ex-wife Tameka Foster, was taken off life support by doctors, who determined that he would not recover from his injuries.

Foster is said to have grappled with the difficult decision to disconnect the life support, and is said to be understandably 'devastated,' according to TMZ.

Kile 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 jet ski behind the pontoon lost control and collided with Glover's tube. 

The sad news comes as the investigation into the accident continues, with TMZ reporting it could now lead to more serious charges against the driver of the jet ski, Jeffrey Hubbard, in light of Kile's passing.
Kile was with an unidentified 15-year-old girl at the time and both children were airlifted to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston.


  1. May his soul rest in peace and God grant his parents the fortitude to bear the loss.

  2. I pity the poor man that caused this terrible incident

  3. Poor child. How come his father wasn't mentioned.
