Usher Raymond took to Instagram on Wednesday honoring his late stepson Kile Glover on what would have been his 16th birthday. The post by the 38-year-old singer showed a smiling Kile with the words, ‘Though you’re gone you still live in my mind. The only thing we ran out of is time.’
‘Since you left I ain’t been quite the same,’ he continued, ‘I wonder if you miss me, do I make you proud?’
Usher added, ‘Know you’re watching me, I feel your spirit. I keep you right by my side. #Stronger.’
He finished the post with, ‘Happy 16th Birthday, Kile$. We miss you.’
Kile is the son of the famous crooner’s ex-wife Tameka Foster, who also posted tributes to her deceased son. Usher and Foster were married in 2007 and divorced in 2009. They have two other sons together, Usher Raymond V, 10, and Naviyd, 9.
Kile died in 2012 after a jet-skiing accident on Lake Lanier in Georgia. In March 2014, Usher’s family friend Simon Hubbard was found guilty of homicide by vessel in Kile’s death. Hubbard was sentenced to four years of prison, followed by 15 years of probation.
