By Posted on 0 1 m read

We send our deepest condolences to Tina Turner and her family as it has been reported that her son, Craig Turner, died of an apparent suicide on Tuesday (July 3). Police reportedly found him deceased at 12:38 pm from a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside of his Studio City, California home.

Craig was the oldest son of Tina, who was just 18 when she gave birth to him. His biological father is saxophonist Raymond Hill, who performed with Ike Turner’s band, Kings of Rhythm. Craig was adopted by Ike after he and Tina married in 1962.

Craig worked as a real estate agent in California. He was 59.

An autopsy is pending.
