Usher pulled out of last night’s ESPY Awards to deal with the tragedy that took place when his stepson, Kile Glover, 11, was struck in the head by a jet ski last Saturday. 

DETAILS: Usher Reacts To His Stepson’s Accident

E! News confirmed that a rep for ESPN advised them the Grammy Award-winning Confessions singer would not be in attendance for sports’ biggest awards show. 

This would have been the first public appearance Usher made since the accident. Last Saturday, Tameka Raymond’s son Kile was in a terrible accident at Lake Lanier in Georgia, involving a jet ski that left 11-year-old brain dead. Since the accident, police have confirmed the driver of the jet ski was family friend, Jeffery S. Hubbard
