Usher
's 11-year-old stepson -- who tragically died last week after a jet ski accident -- has been laid to rest following his funeral today.

As we reported, Kyle Glover -- the son of Usher's ex-wife Tameka Raymond (pictured in the sunglasses) was declared brain dead following the accident earlier this month, and eventually passed away on Saturday from the injuries he sustained.

According to sources, Glover was riding in an inner tube on Georgia's Lake Lanier July 6th when he was struck in the head by a passing jet ski. He was unresponsive when taken out of the water.

Very, very sad to lose a child. Please stop headlining Usher's stepson, he was Tameka Raymond's son first & foremost and where was the father, no mention of him.. RIP YOUNG MAN, may God Bless you & your family thru this horrible/difficult time.

RIP Kile! Prayers, sympathy and condolences going out to Tameka, his father and their family.On another note, why does the media insist on labeling him as "Usher's Stepson" in every article? No offense TMZ as you are not the only ones who have done this but his name was Kile Glover, not Usher's Stepson. yes we know that Usher is the "celebrity" but at least say "Son of Usher's ex wife, Tameka Raymond Laid To Rest or something. To continuously see "Usher's Stepson" as if that was his only "existence" is sad and disrespectful to his parents and family in my opinion. He was much more than just "Usher's Stepson", he was a son, a brother, a nephew and loved. His existence was not just as "Usher's Stepson". Sad...

I just counted the number of black people pictured at 11:22 a.m. PST, there's well over 50.

p.s. I'm not black, and I'm not suggesting racial-profiling, I'm just reporting the facts.

Very sad. I can't wrap my mind around why someone so young, having fun and so much ahead of him is taken so early.
My prayers to the family.

An 11 y/o young man simply having fun in the summer sun and suddenly gone. Some things just will never make sense. I'm sure the family friend that hit him is suffering too. Nobody starts the day thinking something like this will transpire. It's a very sad situation all the way around. Broken hearts in every direction. Rest well Kile Glover. May love surround you and your family.

such a sad story, maybe now the mother will realize it's not all about gold-digging (love those around you, not money and fame)

I cannot even begin to imagine what this is like for the boys family. Very devastating to say the least. I find it even more sad of TMZ readers to not even at least acknowledge this young mans life, but continue to get into the drama and personal lives of other celebrities and make speculations being that none of us really know what is going on. And the only reason I can say this is based on the amount of comments that has been posted here versus other stories. To all of those that complain about the media but still partake in reading and speculating, shame on you because we have been the reason why the media acts as it does.
