Tina Turner is experiencing a parent's worst nightmare.
On Dec. 9, her and Ike Turner's son Ronnie Turner died at age 62.
"Ronnie, you left the world far too early," the singer captioned alongside a black and white photo of herself with her eyes closed on Instagram. "In sorrow I close my eyes and think of you, my beloved son."
Friends and followers were quick to offer their condolences with Holly Peete writing "So deeply sorry" and singer Margo Price commenting, "Sending love to you and your entire family."
And while Ronnie's parents were famous musicians, he chose the life of an actor, appearing in the 1993 film What's Love Got to Do With It, which was based on the tumultuous and often violent relationship his mother had with with his father.
Shortly after the devasting news, Ronnie's wife Afida Turner paid tribute to her husband.
"I did the best to the end this time I was no[t] able to save you," she wrote alongside a series of photos of Ronnie and his family. "Love you for... 17 years this is very very very bad and I am very mad."
