We have some really horrible news to start this week with. Usher and his ex-wife Tameka Foster‘s 11-year old son, Kyle Glover, has been declared brain dead by doctors in an Atlanta hospital after being involved in a jet-ski accident yesterday. Apparently, Kyle was sitting in an inner tube on Lake Lanier when he was struck on the head with a jet ski. It sounds completely surreal and we’re trying to wrap our heads around how that even happened? An investigation is also also currently underway with the Department of Natural Resources trying to piece how something like this went down. Robin Hill, the department’s spokesperson, has told TMZ that their Critical Incident Response Team is going to re-create the accident on the lake and, with the help of technology, will try to determine how fast the boats were going when Kyle got hit. Once they’ve concluded the investigation, they’ll hand over their report to the D.A., which will state whether or not charges should be filed, since the rangers team have been in contact with the driver of the jet ski.
Sadly, Kyle has not registered any brain activity since being admitted into the hospital. Even though Usher and Tameka have been going through such a nasty divorce, the singer chartered a plane for her so she could rush back, as she was out of town over the weekend. Kyle is still on life support, and the decision to whether keep him on or switch it off has not been brought up yet. We’re sending our sincere prayers to the family. We can’t even imagine what they’re going through.
