Usher’s ex-wife, Tameka Raymond’s oldest son, 11-year-old Kyle Glover is currently in critical condition after being struck while riding on a jet-ski yesterday [July 7] in Atlanta.
According to numerous reports, Glover was ”sitting in an inner tube on Lake Lanier when he was hit in the head” by a 38-year-old jet-skier. By the time paramedics arrived on the scene, Glover was unresponsive and quickly airlifted to the Children’s Healthcare at Egelston Hospital in Atlanta.
Tameka was out of town when she heard the devastating news but despite she and Usher’s current situation, the singer chartered a private jet to take his ex-wife to Atlanta to be by her oldest child.
A 15-year-old girl was also injured in the collision and “sustained serious injuries.”
The incident is being investigated and alcohol is said to not have been a factor.
Overnight, celebrities and fans took to Twitter sending prayers to Tameka and her son.
Russell Simmons: ”Praying that Usher and Tameka’s son is OK…”
Fantasia:”Everyone PLEASE pray for Usher and Tameka’s son! This is the time they really need your prayers!”
Maia Campbell: “Lets all pray for Tameka Raymond during her tough time <3″
Bow Wow’s mom: “Please send some prayers up for
@TamekaRaymond and Ryan Glovers son Kyle. She was in good spirits when I spoke to her yesterday.”
B. Scott: “My dear love muffins please pray for
@TamekaRaymond’s son Kyle, God is able!!!”
So sad. We will continue to keep Tameka, Kyle and their entire family in our prayers.
