Usher's Stepson Declared Brain Dead After Accident

Tragedy strikes Usher's family as doctors declare his 11-year-old stepson brain dead.

Doctors have declared Usher's 11-year-old stepson brain dead.

TMZ reports that the doctors made the determination after Kyle Glover, the son of Usher's estranged wife Tameka Foster, showed no signs of brain activity since he was admitted to the hospital.

Kyle was struck in the head by a passing jet ski while riding on an inner tube in Atlanta, Georgia's Lake Lanier.

Reports indicate Usher arrived at the hospital last night (July 7). The singer reportedly chartered a plane for Tameka, who was out of town, to be by her son's side.

Russell and Diggy Simmons were among the hundreds offering support to Usher and his family via Twitter:


HipHopDX offers its condolences to Usher and his family at this time.

      dentaldamboy and youngsta are So Icy. So Baby "pays" So Icy AND Yessir? To spam THE SAME SITE? How does YMCMB gain anything by this when they don't promote anything? Only one who gains from the authentic viewer replies is HHDX....think about it....

    • Not Icy At All

      So Icy Boil is paid by YCMB to flood these sites garbage trolling. HHDX should ban his IP address from this site, and brokenbridge's as well.

    • dentaldamboy

      I can personally vouch that So Icy Boi! does indeed work here at YMCMB AND that Stunna has reached out to Ursher to express his condolences.

    • dirtdawg

      I know you are bored and try to provoke others. From your comments I can tell that you know Hip Hop history quite well. I honestly thought you were just bored and poking others with your "role playing". But this child is brain dead and you end your comment with "swag" I give up and congratulations to you: I now kinda hate you, too Feels good to someone like you...

    In B4 the 12 year old HHDX trolls say Usher isnt relevant because his new album didnt sell and needed his son to die to get publicity or how he should join Young Money.......;This website attracts the lowest form of life these days R.I.P , tragic accidents could be lurking around the corner for all of us, appreciate every day you have above ground

      USHER ISNT RELEVANT? WFT ARE U SMOKIN!

    • youngsta

      usher isn't relevant, his new album didn't sell. an 11 year old boy doesn't deserve to die. and it's his stepson dipshit, read the fuckin article! usher could fit in with ymcmb, but he's an old ass nigga. i wouldn't be buying his album anyway.

      you do know he is not dead yet..... I don't really believe in prayers, but just keep hope alive and wish for the best. others have come back from ish like this before.
