Tina Turner Spreads Son Craig's Ashes in Final Goodbye

Tina Turner did what no parent should ever have to do ... bid a final goodbye to their child when she spread her son's ashes off the California coast.

The legendary singer posted this tweet early Friday morning and said, "My saddest moment as a mother. On Thursday, July 19, 2018, I said my final goodbye to my son, Craig Raymond Turner, when I gathered with family and friends to scatter his ashes off the coast of California." 

She went on to say, "He was fifty-nine when he died so tragically, but he will always be my baby."

As we first reported, Tina's firstborn son, who was in the real estate business, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his home in Studio City, CA on July 3, 2018.
