In sad news, 11-year-old Kile Glover passed away Saturday after being on life support since July 7 when he was injured in a jet ski accident. Glover is the son of Usher's ex-wife, Tameka Foster, and he was hit while being towed behind a boat on an inner tube in Georgia's Lake Lanier. Despite their acrimonious divorce, the rapper rushed to Foster's side to support her, chartering a private jet for her to race to her son's side after the accident. As it appeared the boy wouldn't recover, Usher helped Foster as she struggled to decide whether to take the child off life support. The investigation into the accident continues, TMZ reports, and The Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division says Glover's death may result in more serious charges for the jet ski driver, Jeffrey Hubbard. There's no timetable on when the investigation will be complete. Kile's family said in a statement to CNN: "We know God's in control, and are leaning on our faith in Him and His word at this most difficult time. We firmly believe in the power of prayer and ask that you all continue to pray and lift Kile up, as it's the best way we can all support him now."
