Tina and her ex-husband, Ike Turner, welcomed Ronnie in 1960. Ronnie joined his mother in the music industry and performed with his band, Manufactured Funk.

Tina is also mom to Michael Turner and Ike Turner Jr. Her son Craig died by suicide in 2018.

Craig Turner was found dead inside his Studio City, California, home at the time.

Shortly after his death, Tina revealed that she couldn’t figure out why her son had taken his own life.

“I still don’t know what took him to the edge because at that stage he had said to me that he had never met a woman that he felt that way about,”she told the BBC. “He was bringing her to meet me [for] his birthday in August. He had decorated his apartment that I bought him years ago. He had gotten a new job with a prominent real estate company in California, [which] he was very happy with.”
