Usher’s ex wife Tameka Foster-Raymond has exclusively spoken to Radar Online after a tragic jet ski accident in Atlanta left her 11-year-old son Kyle critically injured on Saturday.
In an interview with Radar Online the loving mother says very short words, telling the site:
Tameka son who is from her marriage to Ryan Glover.
Kyle was hit in the head by a jet skit being driven by a 38-year-old man as the child sat with a teen girl in an inner tube being pulled by a boat on Lake Lanier.
Usher has two children with Tameka; Usher V, four, and Naviyd, three.
Despite their acrimonious divorce and ongoing custody battle, Usher remains close with Tameka’s three other kids and has offered to help any way he can.
I can’t imagine just how this family is feeling right now but our prayers are truly with them.
Reports have also surfaced that an investigation has been launched into family friend Jeffery Hubbard. He was named as the man who was driving the jet ski that struck Kyle, who was riding an innertube alongside a 15-year-old girl. The NY Daily News reports:
Family friend Jeffrey S. Hubbard of Atlanta is under investigation for the Friday afternoon collision with the 11-year-old boy who was riding in an inner tube on Georgia’s Lake Lanier, an official told the Daily News.
“Basically, a pontoon was pulling two juveniles on an inner tube, and the watercraft ran over the top of them,” Sgt. Mike Burgamy with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources told The News.
He said two of his rangers witnessed what appeared to be a tragic accident.
Alcohol was not a factor, and investigators do not believe it was a mechanical malfunction, he said.
Both young victims – the other being an unidentified 15-year-old girl – were wearing life jackets, he said.
