Usher Pays Tribute to Late Stepson on What Would Have Been His 16th Birthday

By  | 

Usher took to Instagram to remember his late stepson, Kile Glover, on what would have been his 16th birthday.

The ‘No Limit’ singer shared a photo of Kile with the caption: “Though you’re gone you still live in my mind. The only thing we ran out of is time. Since you left I ain’t been quite the same. I wonder if you miss me, do I make you proud. Know you’re watching me, I feel your spirit. I keep you right by my side. #Stronger Happy 16th Birthday, Kile$. We miss you.”

Tameka Glover, Usher’s ex-wife and mother of Kile, also honored her late son with a photo that read “Someone I love was born today” along with a touching message;

“As mothers we are merely vessels… Incredibly special because we are chosen by Jehovah God to carry these wonderful little humans. I’m grateful for each boy that God appointed (anointed:) me to carry. Kile was the most creative, genius, song bird, both funny and handsome… I’m so grateful for my time with him. I can smile today because I never missed a beat as his Mother. He knew DAILY that I loved him SOOOO much. Be affectionate, listen to and love on your “heartbeats” every chance you get. I take comfort in the fact that he knew that he was my Heartbeat. I verbally told and showed him. Can’t wait to reunite.”

Glover also shared several photos of herself with her late son on Instagram.

Road Dog!! I’m celebrating my boy ALL DAY today!! #KilesWorld #Sweet16

Back in 2012, Kile Glover died after a jet-skiing accident on Lake Lanier in Atlanta. According to Billboard, in March 2014, the singer’s family friend Simon Hubbard was found guilty of homicide by vessel in Glover’s death, as well as serious injury by vessel and unlawful operation of a personal watercraft. Hubbard was sentenced to four years along with an additional 15 years on probation.

Usher, 38 and Tameka Foster, 46, divorced back in 2009 after two years of marriage. The estranged couple share two sons of their own; Naviyd, 8 and Usher Raymond V, 9.
