Over the weekend, Tameka Raymond’s son Kyle Glover was declared brain dead after he was involved in a tragic jet ski accident which knocked him unconscious immediately. Since then, Kyle has been in the hospital on life support with his parents by his side and very few updates.
While the family has been coping with the tragedy, Radar Online recently caught up with a family friend of Tameka’s who was fed up with the media throwing Usher’s name in the headlines. According to the ‘friend’, it’s disrespectful that the media is disregarding Ryan’s real father, television executive Ryan Glover, while focusing on Usher to create a bigger story.
“I’ve seen celebs and media outlets alike continue to send their condolences to Usher. Kyle was Tameka and Ryan Glover’s child and the sympathy should be given to them first and foremost. Although Usher has been so kind in chartering a plane so she could be by Kyle’s side, he didn’t necessarily play a huge role in Tameka’s other children’s lives after the divorcetherefore it seems a little disrespectful that Ryan is being ignored as a father, in place of another just because he’s topping the Billboard charts.
Ryan was equally devoted and involved in Kyle’s life — they shared joint custody and Kyle was with his other family at the lake, so for those who are claiming Tameka’s at fault for not being there is just absurd — because of the joint custody, her two boys aren’t always directly in her eyesight, but she is a phenomenal mother.
Although Tameka and her husband hasn’t spoken with the media just yet, the Glover Family have released a statement to CNN earlier this week:
“We know God’s in control, and are leaning on our faith in Him and His word at this most difficult time,” his family said in a statement to CNN Tuesday. “We firmly believe in the power of prayer and ask that you all continue to pray and lift Kile up, as it’s the best way we can all support him now.”
