Usher 'Offering Support' To Ex-Wife Following Step-Son's Accident

Usher is reportedly offering support to his ex-wife Tameka Foster following the news of her son's horrific accident last week.

Kyle Glover, 11 was hit by a jet ski last Friday (July 6) on Lake Lanier in Atlanta, Georgia. It's since been reported by TMZ that doctors have declared Kyle to be 'brain dead'.

Despite a messy split from his ex-wife Usher is said to have flown to be by Tameka's side in the hospital on Saturday night. Usher and Tameka divorced back in 2009 but US magazine have reported that he is keen to offer as much emotional support as he can to his ex and the rest of the family.

Kyle is Tameka's foster child from a previous marriage and she went on to have two children with the RnB star, Usher Raymond V and Naviyd. Despite not being biologically linked to Kyle it sounds like Usher has a really close bond with the injured boy. A source told US Weekly:

"Tameka and Usher don't get along, but in this circumstance Usher is coming to her side. Usher practically raised Kyle as his own. He's known him for seven years. It is so sad what happened."

A number of their family and friends have also offered messages of support via Twitter. Jada Pinkett Smith  posted a message that read "Our prayers are yours Usher, Tameka and to all those who have put love into your son. Our prayers are with you as well. Be strong." Whilst the singer Toni Braxton wrote "My heart and prayers go out to Tameka Raymond and Usher Raymond IV during this extremely difficult time".
