Top News: Usher, Stallone, Sarah MG and Jessie J

1. Sadly, Usher’s stepson has passed away from the injuries he sustained from a jet ski accident. The eleven-year-old was declared brain dead two weeks ago and has now been taken off life support by doctors because he will not recover from his injuries. Kyle Glover was Usher’s stepson, whose mother was Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Foster. This is such a sad story and I cannot even begin to imagine how the family are feeling.

2. The funeral for Sage Stallone was held in Brentwood, Los Angeles yesterday. The service was private with only close friends and family in attendance including father Sylvester Stallone, mother Sasha Czack, Sly’s current wife Jennifer Flavin and Sage’s younger brother Frank. Fans lined the street with placards when the hearse was taken to the cemetery.

Stallone said earlier in the week, “‘When a parent loses a child there is no greater pain… This agonizing loss will be felt for the rest of our lives.”

Toxicology reports regarding the nature of Sage’s death will be released within the next six weeks.

3. Onto some happier news now….Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. are expecting a boy! The boy will join their two-year-old daughter Charlotte.
