Usher's former stepson reportedly injured in jet ski accident in Atlanta
Usher's stepson, the biological son of his ex-wife Tameka Foster, is reportedly in critical condition after a jet ski accident in Atlanta.
The 11-year-old boy, named Kile Glover, was involved in an accident on Lake Lanier on July 6, according to the local news outlet WXIA. Glover was on an inner tube, along with a 15-year-old girl, which was being pulled by a boat.
A 38-year-old man who was in the group was riding a jet ski in the same area and the jet ski collided with Glover and the woman on the inner tube. Both were airlifted to a local hospital.
As of July 7, the boy was still in critical condition following the incident. Officials say that alcohol was not a factor in the accident and it is still too early to tell if charges will be filed.
Usher, whose full name is Usher Raymond IV, and Foster are involved in a bitter custody dispute over the former couple's two children, 4-year-old Usher Raymond V and 3-year-old Naviyd Ely.
The singer filed for divorce in June 2009, claiming that the couple had lived separately for nearly a year of their two year marriage. Their divorce was finalized in November 2009 and the two were in court for a custody battle in May.
Usher signed his first recording contract when he was 14 years old, with "X-Factor" judge L.A. Reid. His debut album was released in 1994 and featured co-executive producer Sean "Puffy" Combs. The seven time Grammy-winner has put out seven albums in total, including his upcoming release, "Looking 4 Myself," which was released on June 12.
