TMZ.com is reporting that the 11-year-old son of Tameka Raymond, ex-wife of Usher Raymond, has been declared brain dead.

Kile Glover and a 15-year-old girl were injured on Lake Lanier when a Jet Ski collided into them as they sat on an inner tube Friday afternoon.

The term brain dead technically means the only thing keeping Kile's heart and lungs functioning are the machines. Sources tell TMZ.com that Usher arrived at the hospital last night and Tameka has not left the hospital since she got there.

It is routine for doctors to ask the parents of children on life support if they would consider donating the deceased child's organs. If Tameka agrees, Kile will remain on life support until his organs are harvested.

Tameka and Usher's divorce was finalized on November 4, 2009. Tameka divorced Kile's dad, local businessman Ryan Glover, in 2007.

According to a very reliable source, Usher Raymond's stalker, Darshelle Jones Rakestraw, is a lot more dangerous than Usher realizes.

Rakestraw was arrested at the R&B singer's mansion inside a gated community on June 24. She was taken to Emory Johns Creek hospital and later released.

During a 911 call obtained by TMZ.com Usher told the dispatcher Rakestraw was ringing his doorbell. "She's obviously a fan of some sort," he said.

Usher took out a restraining order on Rakestraw which she proudly displayed in a home video that she uploaded to YouTube.com.

According to my source, Rakestraw has reportedly been arrested more then 25 times in the past. Her alleged crimes range from robbery, burglary, and aggravated robbery to identity fraud, and stalking.

All of Rakestraw's alleged crimes (except the stalking) occurred outside of Georgia. According to my source, Rakestraw poses a serious danger to Usher and his estranged wife Tameka Foster.

    Sources tell TMZ Tameka is scared for her kids' safety since Jones-Rakestraw was able to get all the way to Usher's home, even though he lives in a gated community and has a security team.

    Over the weekend rumors were running rampant that Sean Comb's landmark Justin's Restaurant was closing its doors. The AJC finally confirmed the rumor yesterday. But rumors have swirled for years that Justin's was closing down.

    Justin's restaurant was never really profitable in the 14 years since it opened to much fanfare on Peachtree Road in midtown. Rumor had it that Combs was just a minority owner who fronted for the real owners of the restaurant.

    Justin's business really took a hit when V-103 Morning Show co-host Frank Ski opened his popular restaurant a block away from Justin's last year. Franks Ski's was the nail in the coffin for Justin's Restaurant as the Frank's eatery attracted celebrities and other VIPs.

    Combs opened the restaurant in 1998 when he and his family maintained homes and a presence in the Atlanta area. Combs and Kim Porter's children attended private schools in Atlanta.

    Porter moved to California when local socialite Sarah Chapman gave birth to Combs' first daughter.

    Justin's restaurant's namesake, Justin Dior Combs, made headlines last week when he graduated from high school amid angry reports that his $54,000 free ride to UCLA could have gone to someone less fortunate.

    The Bible preaches using the rod sparingly to subdue and "train up" an unruly child.

    But Fayette County police allege that Creflo Dollar, the charismatic founder and leader of World Changers mega-church in Stone Mountain, skipped the rod and, instead, used his bare hands and fists to beat his youngest daughter into submission.

    What should have been a private family discussion exploded onto the national headlines and fueled debates on how far parents can go when disciplining their own children.

    Dollar, 50, was arrested early Sunday morning after his 15-year-old daughter, Lauren Dollar, called Fayette County police at 1 a.m. to report that her father choked and punched her during an argument that escalated out of control. Police noted "superficial abrasions" on the teen's neck.

    Dollar admitted he "restrained" his daughter after she "became very disrespectful" when he told her she couldn't attend the party.

    Lauren told police the altercation wasn't the first incidence of violence in the Dollar home, and that she felt threatened in the home.

    Updated @ 2:38 p.m.

    World Changers Pastor Creflo Dollar was arrested and charged with simple battery, family violence and cruelty to children in Fayette County early Friday.

    Dollar was booked into the county jail at 2 a.m., according to Channel 2’s Tom Jones. He was released on $5,000 bond Friday morning.

    When police arrived at the Dollar home they found a 15-year-old girl who told them Dollar choked her when she tried to leave the home to attend a party. Creflo and his wife, Taffi, built a custom home in Fayette County in 1996.

    According to public records the 7401 square foot mansion is valued at $1.2 million. The Dollars paid $21,367 in property taxes in 2011.

    Dollar is the founder and senior pastor of World Changers Church in College Park. The megachurch has over 30,000 members. Dollar made headlines last year when he refused to accept former members of embattled preacher Bishop Eddie Long's church after Long settled a lawsuit with four men who accused him of sexual misconduct.

    Last week, a close friend of local attorney Phaedra Parks reached out to me via phone to ask, "Why are they saying Phaedra and Apollo broke up?"

    She was referring to the blog chatter and Twitter rumors that reality TV personality Phaedra Parks's husband, Apollo Nida, moved out of Phaedra's house.

    Phaedra's friend wondered why the blogs were writing these things about Phaedra and Appollo breaking up when they are still together.

    One blogger in particular, Michelle, of Straight From the A blog, wrote a post suggesting that Apollo is tweeting random groupies from an apartment somewhere in Buckhead. But Apollo doesn't have a job, so how can he afford to pay the rent on an apartment?

    Two weeks after a DeKalb County police officer's wife was brutally assaulted and robbed outside their home, he was arrested for obstruction while a search warrant was being executed on his girlfriend’s residence.

    According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the unidentified wife of DeKalb Police Sgt. Jerry Banks was enjoying an evening out with a friend on May 13. She called Banks around 2 a.m. to tell him she was on her way home after dropping her friend off.

    At 3 a.m. the couple's daughter remembered leaving the garage door open and went to close it. She alerted her father that her mother's car was in the driveway.

    Banks, who was at home with his daughter and her boyfriend, said he followed a trail of blood from the garage to the spot on the front lawn where his wife lay critically injured. She was transported to Grady hospital where she remained in intensive care on Monday.

    The 3 occupants inside the home say they heard nothing outside, according to police reports.

    Police do not consider Banks a suspect in his wife's attack -- despite the fact that he was taken into custody on Friday for being "boisterous" and "disobedient" when he was ordered to leave his girlfriend's home.

    More exclusive details from the ongoing Raymond vs Raymond child custody hearing.

    According to Dennis Byron, of HipHopEnquirer.com, Tameka Foster's attorney Lisa West resumed her grilling of singer Usher Raymond on the witness stand today as the media was allowed back into the courtroom.

    Usher lost his cool when Tameka's attorney asked him a question about a deposition. "I'm not finished speaking," said Usher, interrupting West's objection. But the judge set him straight, saying "You have to stop talking when the attorney objects."

    "I'm sorry," said Usher sheepishly as he lowered his head.
