Tina Turner’s eldest son has died in an apparent suicide at the age of 59.

Craig Raymond Turner was found dead at his home in Studio City in California from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to a Los Angeles coroner.

Craig was born to Tina – when she was 18 and her name was Anna Mae Bullock – and Raymond Hill.

Hill was a saxophonist for Kings of Rhythm – a backing band for Ike Turner who became Tina’s husband after her relationship with Hill deteriorated.

Ike – whose band Tina joined – adopted Craig after they married in 1962.

Tina was subject to domestic violence which Craig was forced to witness as a young child.

“Ike’s children never reacted, but my oldest son, Craig, was a very emotional kid,” Tina told Oprah Winfrey in 2005.
