American-Swiss Superstar Singer Tina Turner’s oldest son Craig Raymond Turner has committed suicide.
Craig was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, aged 59, at his home in Studio City, California on Tuesday, TMZ reports.
Craig was pronounced dead at the scene at 12.38pm and Los Angeles County coroner’s office assistant chief Ed Winter confirmed his death was being reported as suicide, although the official autopsy is pending.
His famous mother Tina, 78 was just 18 when she gave birth to Craig, whose father was a saxophonist named Raymond Hill.
Tina later married Ike Turner, who adopted her son and gave him his name.
Craig, who studied at Santa Monica College, was in real estate at Rodeo Realty, in the San Fernando Valley. He does not appear to have any children or be married at his time of death.
The ‘Proud Mary’ singer has four children: her son Craig, and Ronnie, 57, her only child with Ike, as well as Ike’s two children from his first marriage who Tina adopted when they married in 1962; Ike Jnr, 59, and Michael, 58.
