Usher's stepson dies

USHER'S 11-year-old stepson has died, two weeks after he was critically injured in a jet ski accident.

Kyle Glover - the child of Usher's ex-wife Tameka Raymond and her former partner Ryan Glover - passed away on Saturday (21.07.12) after the family made the heartbreaking decision to turn off his life support machine.

Kyle was struck in the head during a jet ski collision while riding an inner tube on Lake Lanier in Atlanta, Georgia, earlier this month and his mother is understandably "devastated" over her loss.

Willie A. Watkins funeral home in Atlanta has confirmed it will be handling the funeral arrangements for the little boy.

Last week, Kyle's family asked for prayers as they kept a bedside vigil following the tragic accident.

They said in a statement: "We know God's in control, and 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."

Usher and Tameka divorced in 2009 after two years of marriage, and were in the middle of a bitter custody battle over their sons Usher Raymond V, four, and Naviyd, three.

However, they are understood to have put aside their differences in the wake of the accident.
