Usher's Stepson Will NOT Be Taken Off Life Support

| Filed under: Baby BlabberUsherSad Sad

Usher stepson brain dead

This is still so so so so sad.

Kile Glover, Tameka Raymond's son and Usher's step son, was in danger of being taken off life support after a horrible jet ski accident.

He's reportedly brain dead.

We heard he was going to be taken off life support because of insurance costs, but apparently that's not true. A source close to Tameka is waiting for a miracle and has never considered taking Kile off any machine.

We are so heartbroken by all of this — we ask that everyone keep little Kile in your thoughts!

    "We heard he was going to be taken off life support because of insurance costs, but apparently that's not true."

    Of course that's not true. That was just your way of "sticking it to the man" because you think we should have universal healthcare.

    Surely the hospital have a responsibility to put the boy to rest since he was legally dead….

    I understand her decision. I would be the same, but how it work in america legally? Genuine question.

    Brain dead means legally dead. There's no deciding whether or not to take the child off of life support.

    I have never been in this position, so I am in no place to say anything, but why keep him on life support, if he is brain dead? Isn't that kind of cruel? I mean, she is putting off the inevitable. Take him off so that the poor child can rest in peace… Just my two cents.

    Did you honestly believe that they'd take the kid off life support, you ignorant twat? I suppose that SHE could make that call, and one would hope that she wouldn't have to endure the hate that Michael Schiavo had flung at him … and the interference from the Jesse Jackson twat … when Michael was right ALL ALONG. Terminating life support is not the call of the insurance companies. It's a heartbreaking call for family members who have to make themselves let go of the empty shell being kept "alive" by technology. I don't envy Tameka Raymond her heart's burden and though I don't know her, I do wish her well … and I hope that the press treats her with some sensitivity.

    Re: nolachick – His mother is grieving and needs time to accept the condition of her son. Once she has accepted that he is gone, she will let him go.

    Devil's advocate here - so you're keeping the kid alive through machine? No chance of him coming back to life. And you're wasting so much money on this. Complete b/s. It's a sad state of affairs - I've had a family member on life support - but keeping him on it and wasting the doctor's time and your own money is mindless.

    How about the family consider organ donation…what a beautiful way to honor that young boys life and help others in need as well

    I couldn't imagine having your son within reach but never being able to speak with him again. Poor family.

    Re: Yes You Bore Me

    "You ignorant twat." Very ironic, considering the rambling, would-be informed text that came after.

    Although I do agree, this isn't really a "will they won't they" situation. Really just a question of when—that is, when in the near future—it will happen. It's a terrible thing to happen to a boy so young and I can't imagine what his family is going through. But the fact is (as reported), he's brain DEAD.

    Re: moomaa – Absolutely. His brain cannot keep his body alive at this point. His brain is gone. His lungs are being forced to breathe via mechanical ventilation and his heart is only pumping because of some serious cardiac drugs. If she wants any part of her boy to live, she'll consent to organ donation.

    Re: nolachick – I agree and you said that perfectly. I appreciate that you're not cruel of menacing like some others were in the relating post. Kyle isn't suffering because when the brain is dead, there is no pain. At the end of the day, this is Tameka's child and while we may not agree with her decision, it is in fact her decision.

    Why not pull the plug and donate the organs to childre who actually can survive.. his condition is not going to improve, the soul has left, all there is the flesh.

    I think this is one of those situations where we couldn't possibly understand unless you've been there.

    Having been in that position (but with my late husband, not a son) it is a difficult decision to make but in the end you have to do it. I was appalled when I left my husband in ICU and got a call 4 hours later that he had taken a turn for the worse. I got to ICU and they had done Code Blue twice and almost immediately got pounced upon about taking him off life support. I had barely had time to assimilate what had happened and the Dr. from China had to be the worst with bedside manners.

    I wish her the best and send my condolences.

    I know they are hoping for a miracle, but the child is brain dead. There is nothing they can do anymore. They are just torturing themselves keeping him on that machine. They need to let the child go and bury him; have a proper memorial. The whole situation is sad but they are holding out for something that will not happen.



  20. 20

    Although I feel for her, she is either ill informed, or not listening to what the doctors had to have told her. Her child is dead. He will not recover from this. The life support is only to help maintain his organs for donation. I hope she has it in her to donate his organs and give him a proper burial.

    god PEEREX have you EVER posted a story that you do not contradict the next day. you were spewing a multitude of lies yesterday. it is really funny watching you bitch about something you know absolutely NOTHING about. big time fuck stick.

    Whether Perez was wrong/right is not the issue. People should be supporting this mother at this horrible time in her life. Life support will not bring this young boy back from a brain dead state. Hopefully, she realizes and fully understands what "brain dead" is and can let this young man go. Yes, it would be a life saving choice to do organ donation, but, some people just can't do that for whatever reason. What I want to know is WHY in God's name was a jet ski THAT close to two kids on an inner tube!?????? Talk about being an IRRESPONSIBLE adult!! He needs to face charges. Period.

    I can't imagine the pain that the parent, and step parent are going through. I also can't imagine knowing that I had to turn off my child's machine by a certain date. That is brutal!!!
    However, as a nurse, I know that brain dead means brain dead. Your brain does not make new brain cells, and you do not recover. His mother is still hopeful, and is wanting a miracle. She should be given time to feel these things….it's part of the grieving process. One day, she might realize that he isn't "living" anymore and decide to let him go. Then again, she may never realize this. Who are we to say? It is a horrible situation, and I'm sure their pain is overwhelming.

    Fyi. People have pulled through from being brain dead. Look it up.. I greatly believe in Miracles and I fully support and agree with keeping him on life Support. Agree or disagree it isn't your place to say that is cruel. You have no idea the pain this family is going through. Show some respect and dont give up hope because people pull through from these things
