Tameka Raymond had a very tough year in 2012. Although the end of her marriage to Usher alone was full of controversy, the following custody case was even nastier. But in addition to the nasty custody battle that resulted in the loss of custody of her two sons with Usher, Tameka Raymond also lost her 11-year-old son Kile in a tragic jet ski accident. Although Kile did not die immediately at the scene of the accident, the incident caused him to become brain-dead, and the family eventually made the decision to remove him from life support. Tameka has expressed on numerous occasions that the death is still very hard for her, unfortunately Kile’s death didn’t manage to bring an end to the custody fight she was having with Usher last summer.
At the time of the tragedy, it was reported that the man who hit Kile is a friend of the family. Jeffrey Simon Hubbard was indicted this morning for the accident after facing the court in Hall County, Georgia on Thursday.
According to TMZ, the District Attorney has confirmed that Hubbard was arrested this morning and indicted for Homicide by Vessel, Serious Injury by Vessel, as well as Reckless Operation of a Vessel. It is also reported that he is being held without bail, and he is expected to face a judge sometime this weekend to learn if he can be released on bail.
The usually very outspoken Tameka Raymond hasn’t said anything as of yet on the arrest and neither has her famous ex husband Usher Raymond.
This is sad because it was reported that he was a family friend. Why charge him, wasnt it clearly an accident?
I agree. I thought it was an accident too. So sad.
I wonder if he was under the influence of alcohol or drugs when it happened. That would explain the arrest.
I agree with you both.
Prayers for all involved.
Wait I didn’t think they were charging anyone because it was an accident. What changed?
