Tameka Raymond Speaks Out Since Son’s Accident, “He’s Bad…” + Asks for Prayers on Facebook

Like most of us, the sad news surrounding the 11 year-old-son (Kyle) of Tameka Raymond came as a shock. Over the weekend, we learned that Kyle, who is Usher Raymond’s step-son, had been in a serious jet ski accident in Georgia. On Saturday, in an interview with Radar-Online, Tameka briefly shared her son’s status, saying:

“He’s bad…”

On Facebook, she wrote:

“Kyle, You are strong.. You’ll be saved I know it. I love you my baby. I need all #Prayers for my son! thanks you everybody!”

And just Sunday, we learned of reports alleging that doctor’s labeled him as “brain dead”. While the reports have not been confirmed by Tameka or Usher’s camp, celebrity friends, hopped on twitter to share their concern. Peep some of the tweets below.
