Usher Stepson's Jet Ski Accident: More Details Emerge


Details from the tragic Jet Ski accident that
left Kyle Glover, stepson to R&B superstar
Usher Raymond, brain dead continue to
emerge. The incident report, obtained by
MTV News from the Georgia Department of
Natural Resources, identified Jeffrey S.
Hubbard as the vehicle's operator.

According to the report, Hubbard was
operating the watercraft in Atlanta's Lake
Lanier when he ran over two juveniles
being towed on an inner tube by another
boat at approximately 3:25 p.m. ET on
Friday. Both of the injured children were
flown to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at
Egleston. While the incident report didn't
identify any of the injured by name, it has
been reported that 11-year-old Kyle Glover
sustained a head injury and had been
declared brain dead by doctors, but
officials have declined to speak on his
condition, citing privacy issues. The
second victim, a 15-year-old girl, is said to
have suffered a cut on the head and a
broken arm.

A media representative at Georgia's DNR
told MTV News that Hubbard was no
stranger to Glover and that he was a
friend of the family. Glover's mother,
Tameka Foster, spoke to RadarOnline,
simply saying, "He's bad."

According to the site, the distraught mom
also took to her Facebook page to send
this message: "Kyle, You are strong.. You'll
be saved I know it. I love you my baby. I
need all #Prayers for my son! thanks you
everybody!"

Foster and Usher were married in 2007,
but divorced two years later in 2009 and
are currently going through a custody
battle. They are both reportedly at the
hospital.

This tragedy comes a month after Usher
released his latest #1 album, Looking 4
Myself.
