Usher’s Stepson Taken Off Life Support
Kile, the eleven year old son of Tameka Foster, Usher’s ex-wife, and Atlanta TV executive Ryan Glover, was taken off of life support after he suffered a brain injury during a boating accident.
“It’s very, very, very difficult time right now,” Foster’s friend, producer Jodi Gomes, told E! News. “As a mother, I’m devastated for my friend. Tameka is holding up strong. She is very faithful and puts all her trust in the Lord, truly.”
The crash took place on July 8th at around 3:30 P.M.
Kile and a 15-year-old girl were both injured when a man on a personal craft ran them over.
It was reported that even when he was being pulled from the water Kile was unresponsive, and had shown no signs of improvement after he, and the girl with him, were both taken to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta in Egleston.
