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.

This is so sad! How in the world do you get close enough to a child on a jet ski to hit him? People need to pay attention just as if they were in cars when operating any motorized vehicle! I pray to God he pulls out of it!!! Don't give up!

i really hope they investigate this incident, it sounds like whoever was on the jet ski needs to be questioned. this could be manslaughter if this person was under the influence. i see so many people on jet skis not paying attention and speeding around. hopefully justice is served for this little boy.

So very sad. No parent should outlive their children. TMZ, maybe you can show some respect for the people you cover, cause even though they are famous they are people that have lives, with all the same hardships that life can throw at you.

So sad. Tragic accident. God bless all the families involved. IMO, jet skis are too dangerous and should not be allowed where swimming is allowed.
