    It is with a heavy heart that we report that Usher's 11-year-old stepson Kyle Glover is brain dead after being hit by a jet ski while floating on an inner tube on Lake Lanier in Atlanta over the weekend.

    Kyle was swimming near his Atlanta home when the jet ski struck him. Usher rushed to the hospital upon hearing this devastating news, even though he amidst a nasty custody battle with Kyle's mother, his wife Tameka Foster, over their sons.

    Kyle was struck in the head and unresponsive when he was pulled from the water and taken to the hospital. Usher even charted a plane so Foster could be with her son. That was pretty sweet and kind of him, especially since he and Foster have been in an ugly custody fight for a while.

    TMZ reports that The Department of Natural Resource in Atlanta is investigating the collision in order to determine fault. What a damn shame.

    Kyle was declared brain dead last night (July 8.)

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to Usher, Tameka and Kyle.

    This is such a tragic story. It totally bums us out.

    Did you send out thoughts + prayers to Usher and his family?
