Usher's Stepson Declared Brain Dead After Jet-Ski Accident -

Things went from bad to worse for Kyle Glover, Usher's 11-year old stepson. After a tragic jet ski accident left the youngster in critical condition on Friday (July 6), doctors have now declared him brain dead.

TMZ is reporting that Glover, who is the son of Usher's ex-wife Tameka Foster, has not experienced any brain activity since he was admitted into the hospital two days ago. According to reports the pre-teen and a friend were floating in inner tubes on Lake Lanier in Atlanta Georgia when they were struck by a man on a jet ski. Glover was unresponsive when he was taken out of the water and airlifted to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, his friend, an unidentified 15-year old girl was treated for a cut on the head and a broken arm.

According to the Atlanta Constitution Journal the Georgia Department of Natural Resources says that alcohol doesn't appear to be a factor in the accident and they are also reporting that man on the jet ski and Glover were a part of the same group on an outing at the lake.

Foster and Usher Raymond were married in 2007, but divorced in 2009. They two are reportedly both present at the hospital.

Many of Usher and Foster's celebrity friends have begun expressing their deepest sympathies and support on Twitter.

"My deepest prayers go out to Tameka, Usher and both of their families right now," wrote Diggy Simmons.

"wishing @TamekaRaymond's son godspeed recovery. horrible news to hear," Roots drummer Questlove added, while television personality Lala Anthony wrote: "Praying for @TamekaRaymond and her family. Asking to give her and her family strength during this difficult time. Praying for u Kyle."

This tragedy comes a month after Usher released his latest album #1 album Looking 4 Myself.
