Ashanti - Stars Support Usher As Stepson Declared Brain Dead

Ashanti, Toni Braxton and Donny Osmond are among the stars who have reached out to Usher after his young stepson was declared brain dead by doctors following a jet-ski accident on Saturday (07Jul12).
Kyle Glover, the 11-year-old son of the singer's ex-wife Tameka Foster, was sitting on an inflatable raft which collided with the watercraft on Lake Lanier in Atlanta, Georgia.
