Usher’s Ex Tameka Foster Wants to Drain Lake Lanier, Georgia’s Largest Lake Where Her Son Was Killed in 2012


The ex-wife of R&B singer Usher is asking officials to drain Georgia’s largest lake, where her son was struck and killed by a jet ski 11 years ago.

Fashion designer Tameka Foster has collected more than 3,000 signatures on an online petition to “drain, clean, and restore” Lake Lanier, a 44-mile-long reservoir northeast of Atlanta.

Only when the massive lake is completely drained can officials safely remove hazardous material and “implement improved safety measures at the lake to ensure the well-being of all individuals engaging in personal watercraft and recreational activities,” Foster claimed.

Her 11-year-old son Kile Glover was floating on an inner tube in Lake Lanier in July 2012 when a jet ski driven by family friend Jeffrey Hubbard crashed into him.

Kile , the son of Bounce TV founder Ryan Glover and stepson of Usher — was declared brain dead but kept on life support for two weeks before he died.

Hubbard was convicted of several charges, including homicide by vessel, and sentenced to serve four years in prison and 15 years on probation.

“This incident, among others, underscores the urgent need for proper zoning, safety, and complete overhaul measures within the lake,” Foster said.

Heavy traffic on the lake has resulted in hundreds of boat collisions in the past three decades, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

The agency reported more than 170 boating and drowning deaths between 1994 and 2018.

After draining Lake Lanier, Foster proposes the implementation of stricter regulations and zoning for water-related activities.

“Draining, cleaning, and restoring Lake Lanier is not only necessary but also an opportunity to honor the memory of those who have lost their lives and prevent further tragedies,” she wrote.

“I Love You Kile and I will fight to the end!”

Foster and the Usher divorced after two years of marriage in 2009.

The couple share sons Usher Raymond V and Naviyd
