In heartbreaking news, sources have confirmed that Kile Glover, Tameka Raymond‘s 11 year old son, has been taken off of life support and passed away.
Kile had been hospitalized since early July, when he was injured in a jet ski accident on Georgia’s Lake Lanier. He and a teenage girl were sitting in an inner tube when a jet ski, driven by a family friend, hit them both. The girl sustained minor injuries, but the impact reportedly left Kile brain dead.
News of Kile being removed from life support broke this morning, with radio personality Frank Ski and Atlanta DJ Greg Street providing confirmation.

TMZ has also confirmed, with additional details:
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.
Deepest condolences and prayers go out to Tameka, Kile’s father Ryan Glover, Usher, and their families during this very difficult time.
