Usher’s ex-wife will be forced to take her 11-year-old son off life support as early as next month because his insurance coverage is about to expire, TMZ reports.
According to sources close to the family, Tameka has not lost hope that her son can make a drastic recovery. Apparently she is telling friends that she still believes in miracles.
Reportedly, Tameka can only keep Kyle on life support as long as her insurance company agrees to pay since she doesn’t have the funds to cover the hospital bills.
Sources say that Usher – who has helped raise Kyle for several years – has been supportive during this difficult time. However, he has not offered to pay for any medical bills. Tameka does not see him as a viable financial option.
Kyle was riding on an inner tube and was struck by a Jet Ski driven by a 38-year-old man. He was declared brain dead days later.
