Who is Regina King ?
Ian Alexander Jr., the only son of renowned actress Regina King, has committed suicide.
The Academy Award winner confirmed the tragic news in a statement to people on Friday.
“Our family is devastated at the deepest level by the loss of Ian,” the statement said. “He is such a shining light that he cared so deeply about the happiness of others. Our family asks for respectful consideration during this private time. Thanks.”
Ian Alexander’s 26th birthday was on Wednesday. He was King’s only child by her record producer, her ex-husband Ian Alexander Sr.
Ian was a DJ and “an amazing young man,” King, 51, told the magazine.
“You don’t know what unconditional love is,” she said of her son in 2007. “You can say yes, but if you don’t have a child, you don’t know what that is,” she explained at the time. “When you experience it, it’s the most rewarding thing there is”.
King and her late son shared matching tattoos that read “unconditional love” in Aramaic, according to the report.
