Tina Turner’s oldest son has died of an apparent suicide. He was 59.
The L.A. County Medical Examiner’s office told Fox News that Craig Turner died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his home in Studio City, Calif., on Tuesday.
Authorities arrived at his place just after noon Tuesday and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
“Authorities are currently on scene and the investigation is ongoing pending an autopsy,” the medical examiner’s office said.
Craig was born when Tina was 18 … before she married Ike Turner. Once Tina and Ike wed, Ike adopted Craig. His biological father was a saxophonist named Raymond Hill, who performed with Ike’s band.
