Usher’s Former Stepson Dies Two Weeks After Jet Ski Accident

Photo by Anthony Mandler(LOS ANGELES) -- Usher and his ex-wife, Tameka Foster, are mourning the death of her 11-year-old son.

Kile Glover, who was struck by a jet ski at Atlanta’s Lake Lanier July 6, died Saturday morning, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Funeral arrangements are pending.

Glover had been on life support after the accident. WSB-TV in Atlanta reports he died of heart failure.

Glover was riding on an inner tube with a teenage girl when they were struck by the Jet Ski, reportedly driven by a family friend, Jeffrey S. Hubbard. The investigation into the accident is ongoing.

Sgt. Mike Burgamy of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources told July 11 that the accident was still under investigation, and that the lead investigators had yet to talk with the district attorney’s office. Burgamy said authorities would determine how to proceed after the boy’s condition became clearer.

He has not returned a request for comment today.

Usher Looking to Settle Custody Battle After Stepson’s Accident?

Image credit: Anthony Mandler(ATLANTA) -- Word is that Usher wants to end the child custody battle over his two sons with his ex-wife Tameka Raymond and settle with her after the Jet Ski accident that reportedly left her 11-year-old son Kyle Glover brain dead.

TMZ reports that sources close to the former couple say that over the weekend Usher suggested that he and Tameka share 50-50 custody of their boys, and that he slightly increase his child support payments.

When Tameka declined, sources say that Usher tried again, telling his lawyers to come up with a new proposal that would give Tameka a greater share of custody. As part of the deal, Usher would also significantly beef up his child support offer, according to TMZ’s sources.

Usher backed out of his performance at the ESPYs on Wednesday night following Kyle’s accident over the weekend.

Sources tell TMZ that it’s possible that Usher’s changed his mind about the custody case because he’s aware of how much Tameka is suffering with Kyle in the hospital, and the singer doesn’t want to move forward with the legal battle under the circumstances.

TMZ cites sources saying the new custody deal hasn’t yet been presented to Tameka, but they say that she’s open to a “reasonable settlement.”
