Reports of Glover's passing emerged online yesterday (July 21) evening.

Kile Glover, stepson of singer Usher Raymond and biological child of ex-wife Tameka Foster Raymond, died Saturday morning (July 21), according to Channel 2 Action News. Kile was taken off of life support Saturday morning and died from heart failure according to a family friend, weeks after the 11-year-old was involved in a tragic Jet Ski accident. Kile was declared brain dead two days after the July 6 accident, and the family struggled with the decision to remove him from life support hoping for a turn in his condition. (MTV)

Glover's tragic accident took place in early July during a Georgia family outing.

Usher's celebrity pals showed an outpour of support on Twitter following the singer's terrible tragedy this past weekend. The singer's 11-year-old stepson Kyle Glover has been declared brain dead after he and a 15-year-old gal pal were admitted to a hospital following a boating accident Friday. The pair were floating on inner tubes in Georgia's Lake Lanier Friday when a Jet Ski struck the two youngsters. Glover, whose mother is Usher's ex-wife Tameka Foster, was reportedly struck in the head and was knocked unconscious, according to Department of Natural Resources Sergeant Mike Burgamy.
