By Paula Rogo,

The oldest son of legend Tina Turner died in an apparent suicide Tuesday, officials confirmed.

According to Variety, Craig Raymond Turner was found dead in his California home from a gunshot wound. He was 59.

His mother has yet to comment on the news. She was spotted heading to fashion shows in Paris hours before his body was found.

Tina Turner had Craig when she was just 18-years-old. Known then as Anna Mae Bullock, she had her oldest child with Raymond Hill, a saxophonist from Ike Turner’s backing band. Their relationship soon fell apart, and she started dating Ike.

She later married Ike, who adopted Craig.
