London: Usher has revealed the emotional turmoil that he went through, after his stepson Kile was left brain dead following a jet ski accident in July.

The R and B singer gave an emotional interview on Oprah Winfrey’s ‘The Next Chapter’ and also addressed claims that he avoided Kile’s memorial service.

“I miss Kile. We cooked together, we laughed, we sang,” the Daily Mail quoted him, as saying.

“He loved to sing and dance. He loved to tell jokes,” he said.

The 33-year-old singer, who was reportedly not at the memorial, denied rumours that he didn’t attend it because of his strained relationship with former wife Foster.

“It hurts me to hear people speculating that I wasn’t at the funeral.

“I absolutely was at the funeral. I was at the burial as well,” he said.

The ‘Papers’ singer was also adamant of not being an “absentee” parent to his sons, as his former wife had previously claimed, and insisted that being a father was one of the most important things in his life.

“Absentee from the aspect of having to go and work, that probably would be her version or idea of what absentee would be,” he said.

“But no, I’m not an absentee father at all.

“I was born to do what I’m doing as a dad. I realised that once I had a child. When I had them, that’s when they became a priority,” he added.
