Usher and Tameka’s Son Declared Brain Dead

It’s been a tragic weekend for Usher and his ex Tameka Foster. Now the singer’s estranged wife is speaking out about her 11-year-old son Kyle Glover’s grave condition after being hit by a speeding jet ski on Saturday. 

“He’s bad,” Foster tells “Kyle, You are strong.. You’ll be saved I know it,” the mother of five wrote on her Facebook page. “I love you my baby. I need all #Prayers for my son! thanks you everybody!” 

TMZ reported on Sunday that Kyle was pronounced brain dead by doctors at the Atlanta hospital he was airlifted to immediately following the accident on Georgia’s Lake Lanier. The as-yet-unnamed 38-year-old man operating the jet ski appears to be cooperating with local authorities, who are investigating the incident.

Despite their ongoing divorce and custody battle over their sons Usher V and Naviyd, Usher has been by Tameka’s side during the ordeal, even chartering her a jet so she could rush to Kyle’s bedside. Usher developed a tight relationship with his three stepchildren during his relationship with Foster and remains close with them today. 

While there seems to be no chance Kyle Glover will make a recovery, it is not known what decision Foster and her family will make in regards to keeping him on life support. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Usher Cancels Concerts



Two Usher concerts in South Africa have been cancelled due to “unavoidable scheduling and logistical challenges”.


The R+B singer was due to perform at both the Cape Town and Durban legs of the Hansa Festival of Legends tour in March (12).


But now the gigs have been scrapped, officials from organisers Big Concerts announced on Monday (23Jan12).


Usher will however still play at the Johannesburg leg of the festival.


Big Concerts’ CEO John Langford says, “We never went on sale with the Cape Town and Durban tickets when we announced that Usher was coming to SA (South Africa). We tried hard to make Cape Town and Durban work, but due to logistics it didn’t work.”
