According to various media reports, Tameka Foster Raymond and ex-husband Ryan Glover, president of Bounce TV, have decided to take their 11-year-old son Kile Glover off of  life support.

UPDATE: Kile was not taken off of life support as initially reported; his heart stopped beating. According to a source speaking under condition of anonymity, Raymond, still hoping for a miracle, had no plans to take Kile off of life support.

Kile was also the step-son of R&B recording artist Usher.

As previously reported by NewsOne, Kile was declared brain dead by doctors on July 8 following a jet-ski accident on Atlanta’s Lake Lanier.

Family friend Jeffrey Hubbard, 38, was identified as the man who ran over Kile and a 15-year-old girl on his personal watercraft. An investigation by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources ruled out alcohol as a deciding factor in the accident and no charges have been filed to date.

At the time that Kile was declared brain-dead, his family still refused to give up hope and asked for prayers via an official statement to CNN:

“We know God’s in control, and are leaning on our faith in Him and His word at this most difficult time,” Kile’s 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.”

Brothers Jake Prince, 9, and Griffin Prince , 13, were killed two weeks prior to Kile’s accident after Paul J. Bennett, 44, slammed into their boat. Jake died at the scene; Griffin was thrown from the boat and his body was found 10 days later. Bennett was arrested for boating under the influence, reports CBS Atlanta.

There has been no official statement from Kile’s family. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the Glover and Raymond families during this difficult time.

Rest in peace, Sweet Prince.
