    I read this as well. So sad.
    My thoughts are with their families.

    I heard about this yesterday. The way the story was told - initially - made it unclear how Usher's step-son was involved and I was left wondering if he was the one driving the jet-ski or the one who was hit. My heart goes out to the family. They have some very tough decisions to make.

    Very, very sad news for Usher and his family.

    In other celebrity news... Tom and Katie have reached a divorce settlement. Unbelievably quick.

    that is very nice of him. At least put aside your differences for the sake of this child. So sad.

    Well, I have no intention of ever seeing her porn or listening to any "music" she makes, but at least she's finally doing what she needs to do to support her family. She spent so much time saying she wouldn't do this and wouldn't do that, while the reports about her dire financial situation kept getting more dire. I still think she has a screw loose, but I'm glad she's doing what she can to bring in money and take care of her kids.

    I just moved a bunch of Tom and Katie posts (although not all of them) to the actual Tom and Katie thread: Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes
    We can continue the discussion there
