Usher's step-son 11 year-old Kyle Glover has been declared brain dead following a boating accident on Friday. (July 6)
The youngster had been floating on inner tubes on Georgia's Lake Lanier in the US when a jet ski struck him and his 15 year-old friend according to TMZ.
Kyle, whose mother Tameka Foster is estranged from former husband superstar Usher was reportedly struck in the head and was knocked unconscious according to Sergeant Mike Burgamy, Department of Natural Resources.
