*The Atlanta man convicted in a jet ski crash that killed the stepson of R&B singer Usher has been ordered to serve four years in prison.
Jeffrey Hubbard was sentenced Wednesday in the death of 11-year-old Kile Glover, the son of Usher’s former wife Tameka Foster. Hubbard was riding on the jet ski that hit the boy and another child in an inner tube on Lake Lanier northeast of Atlanta in summer 2012.
Glover died days after the crash.
*The man accused of killing the 11-year-old stepson of Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Foster has been found guilty on five counts.
Jeffrey Hubbard was arrested last March for running over Kile Glover with a jet ski on a Georgia lake in 2012. The boy suffered severe brain injuries when Hubbard’s jet ski collided with Kile, who was on an inner tube that was being towed behind another boat. Kile was vacationing with his father, Ryan Glover, at the time of the accident.
Hubbard was convicted on five counts, including homicide by vessel, reckless operation and unlawful operation of a personal watercraft, reports TMZ.
*Tapped as guest mentor for Team Usher on the sixth season of NBC’s “The Voice” — which premieres Feb. 24 — Jill Scott has also been busy juggling two other major projects: a co-starring role in the James Brown biopic “Get On Up” and a new album for Atlantic, reports Billboard.
Given her background as a Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter and spoken word artist plus various theater credits (including a Canadian tour of Broadway musical “Rent”), Scott felt she could truly “be of service” during her “Voice” stint.
“It’s a show I watch and enjoy because singers are really being given an opportunity to sing,” she explains. “It’s not all about the look or the visual. It’s really about the tone of the voice, the passion that lives inside of it.”
*Absence makes the heart grow fonder and Usher is living proof as he gears up to return to NBC’s “The Voice” alongside Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Shakira on February 24.
“You make investments in these artists, these talents,” the entertainer told “Extra.” “And there’s something that can happen that’s positive… I’m excited about the potential of what’s going on to happen, the new ideas that’ll just kind of come up. I’m shocking myself a lot of time cause I don’t know what I’m doing when I’m in there. I just kinda go with what I feel.”
*We all know that Tameka Raymond has been solo since splitting with her ex-husband Usher, but now the former married lady is also without a home.
Usher has given Tameka the boot from the 12,544 square-foot Georgia mansion she lived in since their divorce was finalized in 2009.
Usher first purchased the home for $3.04 million in 2007. Although she was allowed to live there, Usher always had the right to sell the house at any time as long as he gave Tameka 30 days notice, the divorce settlement stated.
