Usher's 11-year-old stepson has been declared brain dead by doctors following the accident Friday when he was struck by a jet ski ... TMZ has learned. 

According to our sources, Kyle Glover (son of Usher's estranged wife Tameka Foster) has not experienced any brain activity since he was admitted to the hospital. We're told there has been no decision yet as to whether or not to take him off life support.

Our sources say Usher arrived at the hospital last night and Tameka has not left the hospital since she got there.

As TMZ first reported, Kyle was struck in the head by a passing jet ski while riding on an inner tube on Lake Lanier in Atlanta, GA.

Second tragic jet ski accident in the past few days, including the former astronaut who was killed when his son drove a jet ski into the jet ski his dad was driving. Even sadder when it happens to a person so young.

Will there be a public Scientology funeral, since Tameka is a church of scientology member?

How terrible. My thoughts are with the family. I can't imagine having to go through something like this. I hope and pray they will have the gracious spirit to donate his organs - so that others may be saved - and so that his death was not in vain. So sad. No parent should ever have to bury their child.

For some reason Usher posted a note on his Facebook page about Alicia Keys having a miscarriage but didn't mention his step son. I just thought that was weird.

This is the THIRD child under age 13 that has died from a boating accident on Lake Lanier in 3 weeks. Tougher boating laws need to be in effect or I am afraid we will lose even more children/people in boating accidents before the year is up.

I agree Grace being a parent is hard enough without other people judging . That child is too big for the cart to big for a stroller, shouldn't have a pacifier. As long as the child is safe and being well taken care of why would we judge

I am SO sorry! Such a tragedy for a youngster. My thoughts are with you all.

A brain dead diagnosis is not necessarily final, unless there are other indications of injuries that would make recovery impossible. The instrumentation has limits, which is why sometimes people do recover after such a diagnosis. So if finances permit (as they do here), they may be waiting a while before giving up. in any case, a rough time will be had by all.
