Yesterday Jada Pinkett-Smith celebrated Jaden’s 14th birthday, and on that very day Jada received word that Kile Glover, the son of Tameka Raymond was involved in tragic accident. Being a mother, you can’t help but feel a connection of sorrow to another mother’s pain. So, Jada Pinkett-Smith penned this note to all of us with a special message, including her heartfelt condolences to Tameka Raymond and Usher.
July 8th… yesterday was the day I was celebrating the birth of my son only to find out that Usher and Tameka were dealing with the tragedy of their son. In honor of this precious child…tell someone today
UPDATE: Tameka Raymond has not spoken to the media on the actual condition of her son. The family just asks for continued prayer in a statement. Two corrections: Kile (the correct spelling) is not Tameka’s oldest son, he is the middle child out of five sons (the third oldest). The family friend was not drunk and there wasn’t a mechanical failure involved. Just a freak accident. I want to make sure we get the details right. Encourage people to pray and lift up Kile Glover and his family (Tameka Raymond & Ryan Glover, and his extended family).
This is hard to report and my prayers go out to Tameka Raymond & Ryan Glover, Usher, and their family and friends. By now you have heard that Tameka Raymond’s middle son, Kile Glover (11), has been declared brain dead following a tragic accident involving jet-skis. Kile Glover and and a 15 year old friend were struck by a passing jet-ski while riding on an inflatable inner tube on Lake Lanier in Atlanta, GA. The story is still developing, but if you believe in prayer, just send Tameka Raymond a word of encouragement, a word of strength…

George Zimmerman’s new bond is set at $1 million. Zimmerman was originally released on a $150,000 bond stemming from second degree murder charges from the death of Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman and his wife, Shellie, testified to having limited income. Therefore, the judge granted them a low bond of $150,000 ($15,000 in bail money). Prosecutors later found out during recorded jailhouse conversations that Zimmerman and his wife had access to over $135,000 at the time of the bond hearing. Zimmerman’s original bond was revoked for misleading the court about his financial standings. His wife, Shellie, is now facing charges of perjury for testifying that their income was limited under oath.
Y’all not ready for Cissy Houston to bring the house down, are you? According to BET:
BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! Cissy Houston will PERFORM at 2012 BET Awards as part of an all-star tribute to Whitney Houston
In the words of Sweet Brown, “I SAID OH LAWD JESUS ISSA FAHR!!!” Early this morning TMZ reported that Chris Brown was injured after a fight broke out at a bar between his crew and the crew of Drake. Chris Brown tweeted this photo below, after tweeting “How u party wit rich n**** that hate? Lol… Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!”
Chris has since removed the tweet and picture. But whoa! That’s a nasty gash there! Reportedly there were 5 people in total who were hurt. The cops were called sometime after 4 AM and neither Chris nor Drake were present when they arrived. This just sounds like hot, immature mess all the way through. You may not like each other but bar fights? C’mon son. So what brought these two to blows?
According to TMZ, Kanye West will come home from England to LA only to find a few things missing from his home. Sounds like an inside job, someone close to him who knows his where-a-bouts:
Kanye West is now a crime victim, because his L.A. home was hit by burglars … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Someone in Kanye’s camp who was at Kanye’s home called the LAPD this morning to report the break-in. We do not know what, if anything, was taken but people at the scene tell us … there was evidence the thieves dropped some of Kanye’s possessions on the way out.
