After the death and funeral of her 11-year-old son, Tameka Foster has spoken out about the ordeal, imploring people to not believe everything they read about her. Foster expressed gratitude towards those that sent her well wishes after her son’s accident and expressed a few touching thoughts about her son Kile Glover.
“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the countless number of people who opened their hearts, extended their prayers, well-wishes and remained hopeful for my son Kile during the last weeks of his life,” Foster wrote on The Huffington Post. “I truly believe that he has always been an angel from birth and the world was just too small to contain a spirit so vast. I’m thankful and blessed to merely be the vessel that carried him and humbled that God gave him to us to love.”
Foster also confirmed that the custody battle with ex-husband Usher Raymond will continue despite her grief. “I did not file this custody case (January 2011) and was content with the ‘joint custody’ arrangement that we share,” she admitted. “Most importantly, nor do I wish to appear in court while I am mourning the loss of my son. But I do not want to delay and thus prolong these proceedings either; I’d rather continue this arduous process hoping it will help move me through this most difficult period in my life.”
Foster also implored people to not believe every story about her they see in the media. “This may sound really cliché but you must NOT believe everything you read or hear and never judge… especially without solid facts and always, but always consider the source,” she continued. “Discernment is key. My boys are my entire world and I will fight tooth and nail to keep all of my sons together as a family, I pray for a swift, peaceful resolution so that we all can move forward.”
A day before the letter was published, Raymond asked for a delay in the proceedings because of “unnecessary stress and strain” the death caused but his ex-wife insisted on going through with the proceedings. She claims Raymond’s sympathy is “bogus” and said he only visited Kile once while he was on life support for almost two weeks.
