Tameka Foster is in mourning after the death of her son, Kile Glover. She must, however, continue on with the battle for custody of her two sons fathered by Usher. In a personal statement, the bereaved mother speaks.
Tameka Foster has a personal message for everyone to hear. Writing in a letter to Global Grind, the woman whose child just passed away thanks many for their support while begging all not to believe everything they hear in the press.
Tameka Foster on mourning her son, Kile Glover:
“To begin, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the countless number of people who opened their hearts, extended their prayers, well-wishes and remained hopeful for my son Kile during the last weeks of his life.
I truly believe that he has always been an Angel from birth and the World was just too small to contain a spirit so vast. I’m thankful and blessed to merely be the vessel that carried him and humbled that God gave him to us to love.”
On her custody battle with Usher over their two sons:
“Sadly, I remain in the unfortunate position of having to respond to and attend court proceedings that were not initiated or begun by me. I did not file this custody case (January 2011) and was content with the ‘joint custody’ arrangement that we share. Most importantly, nor do I wish to appear in court while I am mourning the loss of my son. But I do not want to delay thus prolong these proceedings either; I’d rather continue this arduous process hoping it will help move me through this most difficult period in my life. ”
On the press vs. reality:
“This may sound really cliché but you must NOT believe everything you read or hear and never judge… especially without solid facts and always, but always consider the source. Discernment is key. My boys are my entire world and I will fight tooth and nail to keep all of my sons together as a family, I pray for a swift, peaceful resolution so that we all can move forward.”
