Usher’s Stepson Kile Glover Dies Two Weeks After His Tragic Jet Ski Accident
Kile Glover, the son of Tameka Foster and stepson of international superstar Usher Raymond, passed away Saturday morning after being taken off life support.
The 11-year-old was left brain dead after a tragic jet ski accident on July 8, but friends and family hoped the precocious boy would fully recover. Sadly, that was not the case. Less than two weeks later, Foster made the excruciating decision to take her son off life support when advised by medical professionals that his condition would not improve. According to TMZ, the mounting medical bills may have also been a reason to end life support, as it has been rumored that the single mother could no longer afford the hospital treatment and the family’s health insurance coverage had expired as well.
Kile’s death comes in the midst of a bitter custody battle between Usher and Foster, who were fighting for parental rights for their two sons Usher Raymond V, 4, and Naviyd, 3. But, the tragedy seems to be bringing the exes closer. ”Tameka and Usher don’t get along, but in this circumstance, Usher is coming to her side,” a source told Us recently. “Usher practically raised Kile as his own. He’s known him for seven years. It is so sad what happened.”
In the meantime, Tameka is doing what any mother would do: grieving for a child torn away from her arms and his life way too soon. While the family has made no official statement, she tweeted out the picture below. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of Kile Glover. May he rest in peace.
