Tameka and Usher Remain Bedside with 11 Year Old Kile Glover; Family Friend is Under Investigation

Tragedy struck last weekend when 11-year-old Kile Glover, son of Tameka Raymond and Ryan Glover, and stepson to Usher Raymond, was struck by a jet ski while tubing in Atlanta, GA.
As Kile was left brain dead from the incident, a source close to the family says Usher is "torn up."

Tameka Foster's family friend Jeffrey Hubbard is being investigated in the jet ski accident that left Tameka's 11-year-old Kile Glover brain dead at Lake Lanier in Georgia this past weekend.

Tameka Foster and Usher Raymond are by Kile’s bedside today as he remains in critical condition. The two have been going through a custody battle for Usher's two youngest son's, but they have put all issues aside due to these devastating events. 
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Sgt. Mike Burgamy with the Georgia Department of Resources said:
"Basically, a pontoon was pulling two juveniles on an inner tube, and the watercraft ran over the top of them." 
He said two of his rangers witnessed the situation, in which an unidentified 15-year-old girl was also injured, referring to it as a tragic accident.
Alcohol was not a factor in the jet ski accident and investigators do not believe it was a mechanical malfunction.
Sgt. Burgamy continued, saying: 
"One minute the Jet Ski was running around, the next he ran over the top of them. It happened that quickly…It appears the watercraft did strike both juveniles, with the male taking the brunt of the force."
Kile was wearing a life jacket at the time of the incident. Tamika Foster and Usher have received overwhelming support from their celebrity peers.
As the investigation is ongoing and many factors are still to be determined, Burgamy stated: 
"It depends on the male’s condition. With certain things we have to wait and see…Once we gather all our info, we’ll talk to the District Attorney and discuss it with them to decide what action to take."

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kile's family and friends.  So sad.
