Just read this on TMZ. I just can’t even imagine. This is BEYOND heartbreaking. You never ever know how quickly your life can change. This is horrible. Oh goodness I don’t know if I believe in God but if he is real I hope he saves this boy, like a miracle. I’m gonna hug my babies a little tighter tonight and as a matter of fact, get off here and watch a movie with them and cuddle.

he is in a better place. ha!

Evil did your mom ever tell you if u have nothing nice to say don’t say anything at all. You are pathetic.

He is not DEAD, his brain is dead!

I actually gasped when I read that headline. An 11yo declared brain dead after being struck by a jetski.

I don’t care who the parents are, this is the worst possible outcome. Poor child and poor parents.

This is heartbreaking. Best wishes to Usher’s family.

I’m not an Usher fan, but I would never wish this situation on anyway. My heart goes out to his family!


You have absolutely no class. Are you kidding me? Someone is declared brain dead and you have the audacity to still try to promote your pathetically bad music? Get a clue moron!

My heart goes out to the family. This is beyond sad and tragic.

OMG!! Thoughts and prayers to Usher and family; this is awful!

Oh my, I was not expecting this. Oh my Lord, my heart is broken for this family. Oh wow. Please be respectful of the fact a mom lost her child and Usher lost a stepchild and his son’s lost their big brother. I’m heart sick.

@Boona: Beautiful words and I couldn’t agree more.

@Fassdong: A person can not live without brain function. They are only left alive by use of machines. Once machines are turned off, they die. So, ultimately they are dead. My condolences to his family. Very sad.

@Jan: Actually it was a friend there with the boy. It’s just a very sad accident. Also, there was a girl with Usher’s son reported hit too. My prayers go out to her and her family too.

**** man.. what is it with skiing? so many famous people have passed from that sport. So incredibly sad about his son.
