Tameka Raymond and family of 11 year old Kile Glover have remained vigilant after his tragic accident at Lake Lanier on Friday and have issued an official statement to CNN.
The family has held vigil at the hospital since Friday. Usher visited Kile early Saturday morning, but has not returned, according to a source close to the family.
“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.”
Kile’s mother is Tameka Raymond, who was married to Usher for two years until their divorce in 2009. The couple have two sons together, ages 3 and 4.
Kile’s father is Ryan Glover, the president of Bounce TV, a fledgling television network targeting African-American audiences. He is also a former executive with Turner Broadcasting, the parent company of CNN.
