The teenager passed away the previous Saturday after suffering from heart failure when he was removed from life support. Glover was hit by a jet ski on Atlanta’s Lake Lanier on July 6th while he was riding an inner tube. He was airlifted to a local hospital where he was later pronounced brain-dead. The driver of the Jet Ski was identified as 38 year old family friend, Jeffrey Hubbard. No charges were pressed for the accident. A 15 year old girl was also injured in the accident but only suffered a broken arm and cut on her head.

Tameka went to twitter to thank everyone for their prayers and support and to ask that in lieu of flowers, people make donations to a fund that was set up in Kile’s name. Now Tameka is accusing Usher of not caring at all about her son’s death. Tameka’s lawyers have filed documents in the couple’s child custody battle claiming that Usher is only trying to gain sympathy from the media and fans.

Usher had requested that next court hearing in the custody battle be postponed due to the death of Kile. Usher said he was worried the hearing will cause unnecessary stress on not only himself, but also on Tameka and the couple’s two minor children. In a questionable move, Usher also stated that Tameka would have an unfair advantage in the battle because a court would not rule against a grieving mother. Usher believes he will usher and tameka with separationlose custody of his children and it would be unfair to him.

Tameka’s lawyers say that Usher is full of crap and his claims of stress are “BOGUS.” She says Usher did not care one bit about her son during his final days in spite of the fact that Usher regarded him as a son during their relationship. Tameka says that Usher only visited Kile once during his two week stay on life support. She says she begged Usher to tweet a message about her son yet he refused. His next tweet was merely a photo of his breakfast.

Tameka says that Usher’s attempt to postpone the hearing is only a “transparent sham” and she’s asked that the judge deny his requests and require him to appear at the August 13th hearing. She says resolving this custody battle will help her to heal and move forward in her life.
