Usher's Stepson Kile Dead After Jetski Accident

Usher's Stepson Kile Dead After Jetski Accident

Usher‘s 11-year-old stepson Kile Glover has passed away from injuries sustained after a jetski accident earlier this month, TMZ reports.

Kile‘s mother Tameka Foster Raymond struggled with the decision to take him off life support after he was found to be brain dead shortly after the accident occurred.

Kile was reportedly hurt while riding in an inner tube connected to a pontoon. A family friend lost control of a jetski and collided with Kile. The accident is currently under investigation.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Usher and his family during this difficult time.

  • Susan

    I can’t begin to know how this poor woman feels losing her son. For a mother to have to bury her own child, especially such a young child, is something so very tragic. My heartfelt condolences are with Tameka and her family. God bless them and be with them as they find their way through this dark and difficult time in their lives. RIP little guy. My condolences as well go to Usher. I imagine he loved him like his own and feels such a horrible loss for him.

  • anonymous

    How rude and disrespectful! What does Usher have to do with this story? Where is the photo of the little boy? Just because Usher is the big celebrity the little boy’s life must mean nothing to you.

  • Rebecca

    How sad. I feel so sorry for the family of the child. I don’t mean to sound cold but he actually was dead when his brain stopped functioning. I am though sorry for his family. Its hard to loose a child .

  • Courtney

    some of you are heartless Usher was Kile’s stepfather like Franco Nero was Natasha Richardson’s. may god comfort the family in their time of grief

  • Heather

  • Maya

  • Petii

    Rest in peace Kyle !

  • gee

    this is so sad, peace with the family at this time RIP

  • Love The Shoes

    As sad as this is, I must be honest and express that I’m thankful that he’s at true peace and his mother’s pain of trying to decide whether to release his spirit or hang on was decided for her by God. I don’t know if they are organ donors but if they are, what a blessing for others in need and maybe it will help to comfort Kyles family to know he lives through the life of someone’s benefitting from his physical body.

  • Love The Shoes

    @anonymous: Because he loved him like a son and because we wouldn’t know Kyle if not for the Usher connection. Don’t start none, won’t be none ok? This is not the time.

  • Love The Shoes

    @Mlllllle: I repeat, Usher loved him like his own son, a son we only know about because of Usher’s celebrity. Would we have any idea about the child otherwise? No we would not.

  • Me

    @Love The Shoes: do u really think that they would like their own son to be killed so that he can donate his organs to someone else? He was only 11! I´m sure you are not a mother/father yourself They are not thinking about others in this situation, they are suffering becouse they have lost their own son who was just a little kid.

  • LOL


  • Juliet

    @Me: Yes, but he died the day he was struck by that jet ski. They didn’t kill him to take his organs. And you would think that the thought that her son could live on through someone else would be at least a little comforting, along with the fact that they could prevent another parent for having to go through the same thing they’re going through. One of the last things Kile could do is save someone’s life and that’s amazing.
