Kile Glover passed away at the age of 11 after he got struck in the head by a jet ski during a boating accident on July 7.
Usher's stepson Kile Glover was taken off life support on Saturday, July 21. The 11-year-old son of Usher's ex-wife Tameka Foster suffered brain damage after a jet ski accident on July 7 and had shown no signs of recovery since.
"Lil RG is an Angel now, Ryan, Tameka, Usher & the whole Glover Family we gotta make him proud!" family friend DJ Greg Street tweeted, confirming the death. Music producer Russell Simmons later tweeted, "I am sending out every prayer I got to Tameka, Ryan, Usher and their family ... #RIPKile."
TMZ previously reported that Tameka had to take Kile off the life support because her insurance will not be able to cover the high medical bills. The devastated mother posted a photo of Kile with one of his younger brothers on Friday on Twitter but said nothing.
Kile was struck by a jet ski at Atlanta's Lake Lanier while he was riding an inner tube with a girl. Both of the children were rushed to Child's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston but Kile was declared brain dead at the hospital. Usher, although in a nasty separation from Tameka, reportedly was very devastated of Kile's condition.
