Tina Turner's Oldest Son Dead at 59 from Self-Inflicted Gunshot

The "What's Love Got to Do With It" singer is also mom to a 57-year-old son, Ronnie.

Tina Turner's oldest son has died, ET confirms.

Rest in peace, Craig Raymond Turner.

Turner reportedly died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his home in Studio City, California. His biological father was a saxophonist named Raymond Hill, who performed with Ike's band.

In recent years, Tina has been living in Switzerland, but she is in Paris right now for fashion week events. His work as a realtor with Rodeo Realty in Studio City was well received. In a tell-all interview with Oprah back in 2005, Tina talked about the alleged abuse she suffered while she was with Ike and said that Craig was highly affected from it.
