Usher's eleven-year-old stepson has been declared brain dead after an accident involving a jet ski, TMZ reports.

Kyle Glover, the son of Usher's ex-wife Tameka Foster, was riding an inner tube on Lake Lanier in Atlanta, GA Friday when a passing jet skier collided with the boy, striking him in the head and knocking him unconscious. He was airlifted to Atlanta's Egelston Hospital, where Usher joined him last night. TMZ says that he has shown no brain activity since being admitted to the hospital, and that a decision regarding his life support has not been made.

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources is investigating the accident, and has ruled out alcohol as a factor.

“I Was Made to Love Her”

Stevie Wonder | 1967

Stevie Wonder discovered true love while still a teenager, writing this ode to young love when he was only 17. The song, Wonder explained, "kind of speaks of my first love, to a girl named Angie, who was a very beautiful woman. She's married now. Actually, she was my third girlfriend but my first love. I used to call Angie up and we would talk and say, 'I love you, I love you,' and we'd talk and we'd both go to sleep on the phone.” The Beach Boys, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston and Boyz II Men have all recorded versions of "I Was Made to Love Her."
