Usher‘s stepson Kile Glover was critically injured in a jet ski accident yesterday (July 7), but doctors have now declared the boy, 11, to be brain dead. What a tragedy.

According to TMZ, Glover, the son of Tameka Foster, Usher’s estranged wife, has not experienced any brain activity since his admission to the hospital. Glover was reportedly floating on an inner tube on Lake Lanier near his Atlanta home when a jet ski collided with him, hitting him in the head. A female companion, 15, was also struck in the accident and admitted to the hospital as well.

As of press time, a decision about whether or not to remove the child from life support has yet to be made.

Usher, who charted a plane so Foster could get to her son’s side as fast as possible, has been at the hospital since last night. He and Foster have swept aside their differences and have come together in this trying time. While they may be at odds over their children, Usher has proven to be one dedicated stepfather and a good man.

The accident is reportedly under investigation.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Kile, Tameka and Usher during this difficult time.

This tragic accident reminds us of Sean Kingston’s jet ski incident last year, where he was critically injured and we feel compelled to warn people to be careful on the water!
