LOS ANGELES, Calif. (CelebrityAccess) – Tina Turner’s eldest son, Craig Turner, died Tuesday of an apparent suicide. He was 59.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office confirmed that Turner was found deceased in his home in Studio City, California, from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Craig was born to Tina Turner and Raymond Hill (a saxophonist for the Kings of Rhythm, the backing band for Ike Turner) when she was just 18-years-old. Tina and Raymond’s relationship soon fell apart, and Craig was adopted by Ike after he and Tina married in 1962.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Craig was a real estate agent in the San Fernando Valley.
His mother Tina has not yet commented on her son’s passing. An autopsy is still pending.
