Health Insurance Company May Force Tameka To Take Her Son Off Life Support

July 16, 2012  |  

Kile Glover’s condition doesn’t appear to have changed much since he was declared brain-dead roughly 10 days ago following a jet ski accident on Lake Lanier, but Tameka may not have much choice when it comes to altering his permanent state when her health insurance company intervenes, and they have already told her they will. According to TMZ:

Tameka can only keep Kyle on life-support as long as her insurance company agrees to pay … otherwise she doesn’t have the funds to cover the enormous hospital bills.
We’re told the insurance company hasn’t set a specific deadline, but they’ve made it clear … they’re only willing to shell out coverage for a couple months … tops.

At this point we’re only a week removed from the accident, but two months isn’t a long time to think about having to pull the plug on a loved one, especially your child. As any mother would, Tameka is reportedly holding on to hope and wishing for a miracle regarding her son’s recovery. Over the weekend, she sent out her first and only Twitter message since the accident, simply tweeting “Pray4Kile.”

Though Usher is said to have had a change of heart regarding his custody battle with his ex-wife, which involved increasing child support substantially, according to TMZ’s sources, the singer has not offered to pick up the tab for Kile’s medical bills and Tameka doesn’t suspect that he will. Though that is obviously a lot to ask someone, particularly someone whom you are not in good standing with, Usher certainly would have the means to do it. His hesitation may not be all financial though. A lot of people have different views on life support and when you should pull the plug and perhaps he feels if after two months Kile’s condition hasn’t changed, it’s time to let him rest eternally. Thankfully, there is still some time left before the family has to come to that sad choice, if ever.
