R&B singer Usher is "torn up" over a tragic accident that has left his young stepson, Kyle Glover, brain dead, according to a new report.
The 11-year-old was struck in the head by a passing jet ski Friday as he rode an inner tube on Lake Lanier in Atlanta.
Usher has previously had a contentious relationship with Kyle's mother, Tameka Foster, but US Weekly reports the warring pair have put their differences aside in the wake of the accident.
"Before the tragedy, Usher and Foster were engaged in a heated custody battle. But they've put that aside to support each other," the magazine says.
"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."
"[Usher] grew close to Kyle and, of course, that has nothing to do with the situation with Tameka," the source says. "He loved Kyle. This is a terrible, awful tragedy. Usher is torn up."
MTV News reported that Glover was riding with a teen, who was also injured, and that the second victim was a 15-year-old girl who reportedly suffered a broken arm and cut on her head. Both were flown to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston.
Glover reportedly has registered no brain activity since he was admitted to the hospital after sustaining the injury.
Usher, 33, and Foster divorced after two years of marriage in 2009. The couple share sons Usher Raymond V, 4, and Naviyd, 3, in addition to Kyle, Foster's son from a previous relationship, US reports.Follow @PageSix
