Celebrities Tweet Support For Usher As News Of His Stepson's Death Breaks

The stepson of hip-hop artist Usher has died, two weeks after he was critically injured in a boating accident.

Kile Glover, 11, the son of Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Foster, died at a hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution revealed.

Kile was run over on July 6 by a personal watercraft on Lake Lanier, about 40 miles north east of Atlanta, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. He was taken to hospital with a major brain injury.

Before the accident, Usher had been in a legal battle with his ex-wife arising from a custody fight over their two sons.

Usher who's full name is Usher Terry Raymond IV, 33, and Foster, who divorced in 2009 after two years of marriage, were in the throes of a bitter custody battle over their sons Usher Raymond V, four, and Naviyd, three.

But they are understood to have put their differences aside in the wake of the devastating accident. Kile's father is Atlanta-based clothier Ryan Glover, Tameka's ex husband.

Last week it was also reported that Tameka may be forced to take her son off life support - because her health insurance coverage was about to expire, but she had not lost hope that Kile could make a recovery - despite being declared brain dead by doctors.

But while Tameka was praying for a miracle, she could only keep him on life support if her insurance company agreed to pay the enormous hospital bills, TMZ reported.

The website claimed the insurance firm had not set an exact deadline yet - but would only cover the costs for two months maximum.

The insider also added that Usher had been incredibly supportive - but had not offered to pay the medical bills and that Tameka did not see him as a 'viable financial option.'
 
 
Meanwhile Investigators looking into the collision were waiting to see the outcome of his condition before they came to a conclusion surrounding the accident.

Last week Sergeant Mike Burgamy explained that the accident was still under investigation, and that the lead investigators had yet to talk with the district attorney’s office.

He told ABC News last week: 'I don't know what's going to happen with the 11-year-old. We're going to have to see what his condition is going to be before we present findings of the case."
 
Celebrities rallied round to show their support for Kile's family on Twitter as the news of his death broke, including Justin Bieber who simply wrote 'RIP KILE'.
