R&B superstar Usher’s 11-year-old stepson, Kile Glover, has passed away being taken off life support 21 days after he became brain dead following a jet-ski accident on Lake Lanier in Georgia.
Glover was unresponsive since paramedics arrived at the scene of the accident and was declared brain dead by doctors.
The young boy had been floating on an inner tube with a 15-year-old girl when a family friend, Jeffrey S. Hubbard, crashed his jet ski into them.
Glover and his friend were airlifted to Atlanta’s Egleston Pediatric Hospital. The girl suffered a cut to the head and a broken arm, while Glover sustained serious head injuries.
Glover’s mother, Tameka Foster, and other loved ones turned to Twitter after the tragic loss, asking fans to keep Kile in their prayers.
“We know God’s in control, and (we) are leaning on our faith in Him and His word at this most difficult time. We firmly believe in the power of prayer and ask that you all continue to pray and lift Kile up, as it’s the best way we can all support him now,” wrote Foster.
According to authorities, no charges have been filed against Hubbard.
