Usher‘s ex-wife, Tameka Foster, has launched a petition to drain the lake where her son tragically died, in an effort to prevent further loss of life.

Foster, made an announcement on Thursday (July 6) that she was working to have Georgia’s Lake Lanier drained, following a tragic jet ski accident that took the life of her son, Kile Glover, 11 years ago.

Foster took to Instagram to honor her son as well as to raise awareness for the petition, writing: “On this significant day, July 6, we remember the tragic accident on Lake Lanier that forever altered my life. My courageous son, Kile Glover, fought for two weeks with unwavering strength until his passing on July 21. Today, we honor his memory by rallying together for change.”

Let’s demand stronger safety regulations, better zoning, and the removal of haunting material from the lake to ensure a safer future, she concluded. Sign the petition with me and support this important cause. Together, we can make a new beginning and effect long-lasting change. #JusticeForKile #SignForSafety #IWILLFIGHTTILTHEENDOMYDAYS.

According to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, within the first half of 2022, there were 14 boating-related fatalities, 67 injuries, and 114 incidents on the lake. It is also estimated that 700 deaths have occurred there since 1956.
