Kyle Glover, the stepson of singer Usher, has been taken off life support and has passed away at the age of 11.

The kid, whose mother is Tameka Foster, was left brain dead by a tragic jet ski accident two weeks ago.

Medical professionals had deemed his condition too severe to be recovered from.

TMZ reports that Foster "struggled tremendously" with the heart-wrenching decision to let her son go, and is "understandably devastated".

Kyle was rushed to hospital in Atlanta after being struck by a 38-year-old man on a jet ski whilst holidaying at Lake Lanier in Georgia. He and a 15-year-old were being pulled along on an inner tube by a speedboat. The accident is under investigation.

A source had said of Usher: "He grew close to Kyle and, of course, that has nothing to do with the situation with Tameka.

"He loved Kyle. This is a terrible, awful tragedy. Usher is torn up."

Kyle is survived by his siblings Usher V, four, and three-year-old Naviyd.
