(BlackMediaScoop) Usher’s celebrity friends showed an outpour of support on Twitter following the singer’s terrible tragedy this past weekend.
The singer’s 11-year-old stepson Kyle Glover and a 15-year-old gal pal were floating on inner tubes in Georgia’s Lake Lanier Friday when a Jet Ski struck the two youngsters. The latest reports indicate Glover has been declared brain dead!
We’re told he has not experienced any brain activity since he was admitted to the hospital. But so far there has been no decision yet as to whether or not to take him off life support.
Sources say Usher arrived at the hospital last night and Tameka has not left the hospital since she got there. Glover, whose mother is Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Foster, was reportedly struck in the head and was knocked unconscious, according to Department of Natural Resources Sergeant Mike Burgamy.
The girl also suffered serious injuries. Both children were immediately air-lifted to Children’s Healthcare at Egelston Hospital in Atlanta.
“Everyone PLEASE pray for Usher and Tameka’s son! This is the time they really need your prayers,” singer Fantasia tweeted Saturday.
“Praying that Usher and Tameka’s son is ok…” Russell Simmons added.
The cause of the horrific incident is still under investigation, which could take months to complete. So far, officials have ruled out alcohol as a factor in the accident, but Robin Hill, a rep for the Department of Natural Resources (Wildlife Resources Division) said they will recreate the accident using special computer programs to determine the details.
Let’s keep them all in our prayers…
