Tina Turner's eldest son dies at age 59

Authorities pronounced him dead at the scene.

Craig grew up to become a real estate agent in the San Fernando Valley.

Tina was just 18-years-old when she gave birth to Craig, whose father was saxophonist Raymond Hill.

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

According to his Facebook page, he was a realtor at Rodeo Realty.

ET has reached out to Turner's rep for comment. In the 1940s, Hill joined Ike's band called Kings Of Rhythm. Craig Turner's sibling, Ronnie Turner, survives his eldest at the age of 57.

I extend my prayers to Tina and her family during this hard time.

One fan tweeted: "Prayers for our beloved Tina Turner". He added that Craig lived in Los Angeles. But Ike had no sense of that. Ike ended up adopting Craig as his own after he and Turner married four years later.

Tina Turner was in Paris at the time of Craig's death, with the singer having attended the Giorgio Armani Privé Haute Couture fashion show.
