Usher's stepson Kile Glover taken off life support
Usher's 11-year-old stepson, Kile Glover, is dead after an accident on Georgia's Lake Lanier left him brain dead.
Foster made the difficult decision to take her son off life support after doctors said a full recovery was unlikely. Reports said she made the decision after her medical insurance provider said it wouldn't pay for "a couple of months" on life support. A source told TMZ that Usher — who raised Kile for several years — was very supportive, but didn't offer to pay for bills and Foster didn't ask.
The family hasn't spoken out about Kile's sad passing, but on Friday Foster tweeted a photo of Kile with his brother during happier times. Celebrity pals are sending their sympathy to Foster and the family, though
"Sending my prayers & love to the entire family," Ludacris tweeted.
"God bless this family," actress Niecy Nash wrote.
"Basically, a pontoon was pulling two juveniles on an inner tube, and the watercraft ran over the top of them," Sgt. Mike Burgamy of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources told the New York Daily News after the accident.
Officials are still investigating the accident on Georgia's Lake Lanier, according toThe Hollywood Reporter.
"One minute the Jet Ski was running around, the next he ran over the top of them — it happened that quickly," Burgamy added. "It appears the watercraft did strike both juveniles, with the male taking the brunt of the force."
So, so sad.
