Despite currently being embroiled in a bitter child custody battle with his former wife Tameka Foster, the "Climax" singer chartered her a private jet so that she could fly to be by her son's side shortly after the July 7 accident.

Glover, the son of Foster's ex-husband Ryan Glover, was quickly air-lifted to Children's Healthcare at Egelston Hospital in Atlanta and there has not been any decision as to whether to take him off life support, according to TMZ.com.

"He's bad," Foster told Radar Online about Glover's condition.

Several celebrities and close friends of Usher took to social networking site Twitter to offer their support.

"My prayers go out to Usher and his family!" Tia Mowry tweeted.

"My heart hurts for Kyle Glover, @TamekaRaymond's 11 yr old son. Praying for her, Usher & family. #motherlove," Sherri Shepherd tweeted.

"Cant sleep.Thinkin abt life & how quick things can change.Tameka/Usher's situation really got 2me.Cant let my son go rt now.#Holdinghimtight," Royce Reed tweeted.

"My prayers go out to Usher @UsherRaymondIV and his family. His stepson was declared brain dead after a jet ski accident. Please pray 4 them," Donny Osmond tweeted.
