Usher's Stepson Declared Brain Dead Following Jet Ski Accident
Following a tragic jet ski accident, Usher's 11-year-old stepson Kyle Glover has been declared brain dead by doctors.
On Saturday, Glover was reportedly sitting in an inner tube on Lake Lanier in Georgia when he was struck in the head by a passing jet ski driven by an unidentified 38-year-old man.
According to TMZ, Glover showed no brain activity since his hospital arrival and is currently on life support.
Usher's estranged wife, Tameka Foster, has reportedly been by the child's bedside all weekend.
While more details have yet to emerged -- including if Foster and the boy's biological father, Atlanta clothier Ryan Glover, will take Kyle off life support -- the "Yeah" singer's pals have offered their support through Twitter.
Rap mogul Russell Simmons tweeted:
