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.

Horrible. I can only hope that out of this tragedy Usher and Tameka will now wake up and put their petty behavior behind them for good. This probably makes them realize how ludicrous they were treating each other with children involved. The 4 remaining kids will need them now more than ever.

I was hoping that this child would pull through quickly. I still have hope for him. Kudos to Tameka and Usher for putting their differences aside and rushing to the aid of their child. G-d bless.

I can't decide who would be the lower form of life-- people who mark "hate" next to posts sending their prayers to a family in grief, or the pathetic morons who are trying to con people out of money at a time like this.

My deepest sympathy to the entire family.
I do hope they will consider organ donation so that Kyle may live on in others.
Sincerely,
Shawn
