Usher and His Family Ask That You Pray For His Stepson
Usher and his family have released their first statement since the tragic accident that left his stepson Kyle Glover brain dead.
“We know God’s in control, and are leaning on our faith in Him and His word at this most difficult time,” said the family on Tuesday. “We firmly believe in the power of prayer and ask that you all continue to pray and lift Kile [Kyle] up, as it’s the best way we can all support him now.”
Kyle and a 15-year-old girl were riding in an inner tube pulled by a pontoon boat when a man on a ski jet ran over the 11-year-old boy and unnamed girl. The man has been identified as 38-year-old Jeffrey S. Hubbard.
Both Kyle and the young girl were flown to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston after they were rescued from the Georgia’s Lake Lanier. The girl suffered cuts to her head and a broken arm, but was in stable condition. Tragically, Kyle did not show any brain activity since being admitted to the hospital.
Usher charted a plane with his ex-wife Tameka Foster to be with Kyle.
Friends of Usher and Tameka have tweeted their condolences and well wishes.
“Wishing @TamekaRaymond’s son godspeed recovery. horrible news to hear,” tweeted Roots’ drummer Questlove.
Jermaine Dupri added, “Lifers! pls say a prayer for man Ryan, Tameka, Usher and the Glover family.”
