Usher's Stepson Loses Battle, Dies After Being Removed from Life Support

Kyle Glover, the son of Usher's former wife, died Saturday morning after being taken off life support.

Kyle Glover, the son of entertainment superstar Usher's ex-wife, reportedly has died after being removed from life support.

According to the Huffington Post, the entertainment Web site TMZ reported that Glover's mother, Tameka Foster, allegedly made the tough decision after being told that a full recovery was not likely. She is also said to have been unable to pay the medical bills required to keep her son on life support, after the family's insurance company coverage expired.

Glover (aka Kyle Glover), 11, was critically injured earlier in July after being hit by a jet ski driven by a family friend on Lake Lanier. A 15-year-old girl with Glover also was injured. Both were life flighted to Children's Hospital in Atlanta.

A family friend, Jeffrey S. Hubbard, reportedly was driving the jet ski that hit the youths, who were in inner tubes being pulled by a pontoon boat. No charges have been filed, and alcohol is not believed to be a factor in this accident.

Glover's death would mean that three area youths have died as a result of recent accidents on Lake Lanier. In June, brothers Griffin and Jake Prince of Buford were killed when another boater slammed into a pontoon boat driven by the Princes' father. .
