Usher's ex-wife Tameka Foster has broken her silence following her son's death last month (Jul12) as she prepares for another court showdown with the R&B star on 13 August (12).
The stylist has released a statement to GlobalGrind.com thanking everyone who prayed for 11-year-old Kile as he fought for life in a Georgia hospital following a freak jet-ski accident that left him brain dead weeks before his life support system was turned off.
The pre-teen was laid to rest on 27 July (12) and a week later, his mother is speaking out about her gratitude for all those who helped the family during its time of need.
She writes, "I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the countless number of people who opened their hearts, extended their prayers, well-wishes and remained hopeful for my son Kile during the last weeks of his life.
"I truly believe that he has always been an Angel from birth and the World was just too small to contain a spirit so vast. I'm thankful and blessed to merely be the vessel that carried him and humbled that God gave him to us to love. I also feel humbled by everyone's show of concern, and knowing that Kile Glover touched the lives of so many has given me strength during my worst and darkest hour."
Foster will have other matters to tend to later this month (Aug12) after challenging her ex-husband's request to postpone their upcoming custody hearing over their two young sons, insisting the singer's concerns for his and his ex-wife's "unnecessary stress and strain" were "bogus". She called on the judge to continue with the scheduled court date and the former couple will be back in court on 13 August (12).
