A family friend of Tameka Foster is p****d off at the media for failing to acknowledge the biological father of Tameka Foster’s son who recently suffered brain damage from a jet ski accident last week. She’s alleging the media is focusing too much attention on Usher for the sake of selling the tragic story to their audience. Here’s what she had to say: “I’ve seen celebs and media outlets alike continue to send their condolences to Usher. Kyle was Tameka and Ryan Glover’s child and the sympathy should be given to them first and foremost. Although Usher has been so kind in chartering a plane so she could be by Kyle’s side, he didn’t necessarily play a huge role in Tameka’s other children’s lives after the divorce therefore it seems a little disrespectful that Ryan is being ignored as a father, in place of another just because he’s topping the Billboard charts.
Ryan was equally devoted and involved in Kyle’s life — they shared joint custody and Kyle was with his other family at the lake, so for those who are claiming Tameka’s at fault for not being there is just absurd — because of the joint custody, her two boys aren’t always directly in her eyesight, but she is a phenomenal mother.”
While her points are valid, I find it ironic that she’d go through the media to express her frustrations. Someone could very well assume that she’s attempting to get her fifteen-minutes of fame. The bottom line is: A life is on the line. It doesn’t matter the amount of sympathy thrown at one party or the other. The bigger picture is wishing the best for the child.
Eleven-year-old Kyle Glover suffered brain damage after a family friend struck him and an unidentified 15-year-old girl with a jet ski as they floated in an inner tube on Lake Lanier in Georgia this past weekeend. The family friend is currently under investigation. Alcohol has been ruled out as a potential cause for the accident and both victims were wearing life jackets.
