A couple of weeks ago, we learned that Usher‘s stepson, Kyle, the son of Tameka Foster, had been declared brain dead after a jet ski accident. At the time, it was unclear if Tameka had decided whether or not to take her son off of life support, but this morning, she made the difficult decision.
Usher’s 11-year-old stepson has passed away this morning from injuries suffered in a tragic jetski accident in Georgia earlier this month … TMZ has learned.
Doctors removed 11-year-old Kyle Glover from life support after it was determined the injuries were too severe to overcome. We’re told Kyle’s mother, Tameka Foster, struggled tremendously with the decision.
According to our sources, Tameka is understandably devastated.
Glover was injured on July 8 … as he was riding in an inner tube that was connected to a pontoon in Lake Lanier. According to authorities, a family friend who was riding a jetski behind the pontoon lost control and collided with Glover’s tube.
The accident is currently under investigation.
Obviously, this is tragic news, and I really don’t know what else to say about it, so let’s all just agree to take a few moments to send some good thoughts to Usher, Tameka, and everyone else in the world who is having a horrible, awful day, all right?

For any of you guys who might have missed it this past weekend, Usher‘s eleven-year-old stepson (the son of soon-to-be ex-wife Tameka Foster) was struck by a jetski while he was floating on an inner tube on Lake Lanier in Atlanta, Georgia.
Usher’s 11-year-old stepson has been declared brain dead by doctors following the accident Friday when he was struck by a jet ski … TMZ has learned.
According to our sources, Kyle Glover (son of Usher’s estranged wife Tameka Foster) has not experienced any brain activity since he was admitted to the hospital. We’re told there has been no decision yet as to whether or not to take him off life support.
Our sources say Usher arrived at the hospital last night and Tameka has not left the hospital since she got there.
As TMZ first reported, Kyle was struck in the head by passing jet ski while riding on an inner tube on Lake Lanier in Atlanta, GA.
This is seriously heartbreaking. At eleven years old, this child is going to die? I shake my head in sadness and disbelief. I also can’t fathom the decision that Tameka is going to have to make in taking her son off of life support, even though there’s no chance that her son will ever gain consciousness again.
What a nightmare, guys. Say some prayers of strength for the family and thankfulness that you’ve got whatever it is you’ve got, because this is just another showcase of how things can happen in the blink of an eye and change your life forever.

Remember when Usher was married to Tameka Foster, the woman who was made famous for popping out a few Usher juniors and getting the shadiest liposuction ever? Well, add another little achievement to her list, because she’s also banged Usher on camera, and that certainly deserves a mention.
According to TMZ, someone’s going around, trying to sell the tape, and they sent in a little sexy snippet from the video as a preview, I guess. TMZ also says that it’s definitely Usher and Tameka, and that “the people in the video are both givers,” so you can let that little mental image satisfy you until the tape leaks.
Would you want to see the Usher sex tape? I think I would. The way I imagine it, Usher is a tender and attentive lover, and he soulfully sings “Nice and Slow” the whole time. I expect I’ll be disappointed when the real tape comes out and he’s singing a really creepy version of “U Got It Bad” instead.

So, as you all probably know by now, Usher’s wife, Tameka Foster, was in Brazil to have lipo on her tummy, and went into cardiac arrest after being put under general anesthesia. Tameka had just given birth to the couple’s second son two months ago.
Now, everyone wants to talk about how the stomach isn’t ready for lipo that soon after giving birth, which is neither here nor there, because the lipo was never performed, you guys. The problem was with the general anesthesia. I have two questions:
1) Why on earth did she go to Brazil to have a simple, legal procedure like lipo performed?
2) Why was she under general anesthesia for lipo? Many, many doctors in the U.S. will perform this procedure under twilight anesthesia, which is equally comfortable and presents a far, far lesser risk for the patient than general anesthesia.
I feel like there’s something we’re not being told here.

Usher cancelled his scheduled Saturday night appearance at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy celebration due to a serious family emergency. As it turns out, the crisis stems from plastic surgery gone wrong.
Usher’s wife, Tameka, underwent some sort of plastic surgery procedure in Brazil. Since she popped out two kids in thirteen months, I’m voting tummy tuck, boob lift, lipo…oh screw it, full body overhaul. Anyway, Usher has travelled to South America as well as Cedars-Sinai neurosurgeon, Gabriel Hunt. A neurosurgeon? This cannot be good.
What the hell was she doing in Brazil? In the evil recesses of my brain, I can’t help but wonder if this wasn’t some sort of surgery/resort vacation bargain set up by Usher’s mother. You know, the one refused to attend Usher and Tameka’s wedding.
Prayers to Usher and his family that this turns out okay.

Congratulations to Usher and his shim of a wife, Tameka Foster.
“Usher and Tameka Raymond welcomed their second son, Naviyd Ely Raymond, on Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2:33 a.m. weighing 5 lbs., 13 oz.,” says the rep. “Tameka and the baby are doing fine.”
Naviyd joins older brother Usher Raymond V, who turned 1 on Nov. 26. The parents married in 2007. Tameka, 37, also has three sons from a previous relationship.
Holy shit, this chick has birthed five boys in a row?
What are the odds?
I’m telling you people: This “woman” has a Y chromosome.
