    CRAIG TURNER SON OF TINA TURNER WAS FOUND DEAD OF AN APPARENT SUICIDE 1 DAY BEFORE HIS FAMOUS MOTHER’S 5TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY. People shouldn’t blame Ike Turner for Craig’s death. Tina said Craig was an emotional kid in her 2005 Oprah interview and there still hasn’t been a statement made by the family regarding Craig’s suicide. However, 30 years earlier in a 1985 Spin magazine article Ike said Tina’s “kiss and tell” about their 20 year relationship was hurting and embarrassing their sons. He asked her to stop. But instead she wrote a tell all book in 1986, released a scathing film in 1993 and now a London 2018 feel good domestic violence musical. It’s said she might include a Craig suicide song. Not cool. Not Ike’s fault. RIP Craig and Ike.

  2. I am praying for you Tina and your Family.
    May the Almighty wrap his arms around you and your family and give you PEACE during this difficult time

    This is devastating and I’m sure Tina is going through all ranges of emotions a human being can experience. Mental illness affects so many people-race, economic standing, religion, etc…, doesn’t matter….
