Usher and his estranged wife Tameka Foster were in the midst of a messy divorce when tragedy struck Tameka’s son/Usher’s former stepson, Kile. The 11-year-old was tubing on a lake when he was hit in the head by a jet ski ridden by a family friend and has since been pronounced brain dead. Though Usher and Tameka were not on speaking terms, Ursh is right by her side in this trying time. Details below.

“He grew close to Kyle and, of course, that has nothing to do with the situation with Tameka,” a source tells Us Weekly. “He loved Kyle. This is a terrible, awful tragedy. Usher is torn up.”

“Tameka and Usher don’t get along, but in this circumstance Usher is coming to her side,” a source told Us. “Usher practically raised Kyle as his own. He’s known him for seven years. It is so sad what happened.”
