    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Are you f-cking kidding me? This man’s stepson is brain dead and you have the nerve to, instead of wishing him well, promote yourself. Get over yourself and stop trying to make your sh-tty music happen.
    Anyway, it’s sad to hear something like this happen. I hope things look up for them and they can get through this.

    Twinkle Says:

    So senseless. Why did this have to happen? Doctors always say that the patient never felt anything. But it is the living that are left with the pain and the ‘why’s’. My heart bleeds for the family.

    God bless his son and his loved ones. Praying for his mother and hoping she can soon understand that God has a plan for all of them. Angels must be by their side. Heartfelt sympathy.

    Very sad, The poor boy was alive and is now dead.
    Jet skis need to be operated by adults only and with rules like any other motorized vehicles.Jet skis need to be, like boats , away from swimmers and sunabthers and out in the deep water.

    The person who did was probably a drunk adult or a child about 12-15 yrs. or late teens. People have 12 yr. olds on jet skis and think it is cute.

    Sorry to bring this up but it is a fact. Tameka Foster had two or three kids from one or two or three previous marriages/realtionships and when she nailed Usher, a dummy who was told by his mother not to marry this woman, stop dating her, etc, Tameka hit paydirt. She has slandared him in court for more money. he has won custody time and she wants as much money as she can get. Loutin’s, Channel bags, etc. cost. that Alt .lifestyle.

    Now, she hasa dead son and no amt. of money can make him or bring him back.

    Very sad about this boy and the other child injured and very sad about Usher and marrying her and about her slandering him.

    :( So tragic! Even though they’re in the middle of a divorce I hope Usher can be there for Tameka and their family. Wish them all the best.

    but i got a question is he dead or just in coma? Anyway, i hope the best for this kid, so young, poor

    Aldinaa Says:

    Kyle isn’t dead, he is just brain dead he’s on life support. They’re thinking about what to do if they should pull the plug or not. I really hope they don’t pull the plug, I believe in God and that God can do a miracle for this child. He’s too young to leave, my heart & prayer goes out to Usher’s family. Parents should never bury their child. So stop with the R.I.P is never too late.

    This is such sad news. Brain dead is worse than dying but there is still hope. I hope their son pulls through and makes it and recovers.
