‘What’s love got to do with it’ singer, Tina Turner, 78, has lost her 59-year-old son, Craig Turner, who was confirmed dead after an apparent suicide, the police says.
According to Variety, the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner said the American-born Swiss singer’s son was found dead on Tuesday afternoon at his home in Studio City, California, with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Authorities pronounced him dead at the scene.
Craig was born in 1959 to then 18-year-old Tina Turner and then-boyfriend Raymond Hill, a saxophonist for the Kings of Rhythm band.
Through Hill, Tina would eventually meet her first husband, Ike Turner, who adopted Craig.
