As if we needed more sad news this week, Usher‘s stepson Kile Glover died this morning from injuries suffered during a watercraft accident earlier this month. The 11-year-old was declared brain dead shortly after being rushed to an Atlanta hospital from the scene, and it was expected that he would be taken off life support in the near future.
Kile’s mother Tameka Foster made the tough decision to have the boy’s life support removed today, TMZ reports. It’s a harrowing, and unfortunately inevitable, end to this tragic story, which began on July 8 when Kile and a female friend were accidentally struck by a jet-skier on Lake Lanier in Georgia.
Kile is pictured with his stepdad above at the 2008 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
