Usher's Ex-Wife Sponsoring a Run in Memory of Her Son




A little over a year ago, the son of Usher's ex-wife Tameka Raymond, died in a boating accident on a Georgia lake.

With a goal to keep the memory of son Kile Glover alive, Raymond is honoring him with the first Give Thanks 5K run/walk Saturday morning at Chastain Park in Atlanta. She wants to raise money for the Kile's World Foundation's art initiatives and upcoming camps.

"I know when I'll be running, I will be thinking of him," Raymond said of her son, who was run over by a personal watercraft on Lake Lanier, northeast of Atlanta, last year.

Kile, 11, died two weeks after being critically injured in the accident.

Unfortunately, Usher will be unable to attend the event because he's out of the country filming the movie, "Hands of Stone." The Grammy-winning pop star is playing the role of Sugar Ray Leonard in a film based on boxing great Roberto Duran.

Several celebrity trainers will be there including Lil Wayne's ex-wife Antonia "Toya" Carter and Cynthia Bailey from "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."

"It's kind of a fun run," she said. "Not super competitive. People will be running and walking, including myself. I'll be mixing the two. I'm sure some will be able to work off some of the calories from Thanksgiving."
