There are many celebrities in Hollywood who have chosen a particular profession because they were influenced by their parents. One of them is Ike Turner Jr. He is the son of the legendary singer and producer Ike Turner. Like his father, Ike Jr. is also a musician and has appeared in several films.
Unfortunately, his father is no longer in this world, but what was their relationship like in the past? In addition to what his love life has been like so far. Is Ike Turner Jr. married? Does he have children?
In this article, we will explore all aspects of his personal and professional life. Join us if you want to know the whole story.
Ike Turner Jr. Is The Son Of Ike Turner & Lorraine Taylor
A musician by profession, Ike Turner Jr. was born in 1958 to father Ike Turner and mother Lorraine Taylor. Unfortunately, he was not able to spend much time with his parents as they separated a few years after his birth.
Soon after, in 1962, his father began a relationship with Tina Turner. Ike Jr. thus began to live with his father and his new wife Tina, who later adopted him.
Growing up with his stepmother, Ike Jr. attended a local school but was unable to pursue higher education as he started helping his parents in the recording studio.
Ike Turner Jr.’s Siblings
He is not the only child in his family but has six siblings. Michael Turner is his biological brother, and Ronnie, Mia, Tvanna, and Linda Turner are his half-siblings, born from their father’s multiple relationships.
Ronnie is, like him, a successful actor and musician, while his half-sister Mia is a businesswoman. He also has a great relationship with all of them. In fact, they love spending time with each other and are often seen together in public.
He Is An Actor And Musician
Like his parents, Ike Jr. is also inclined towards music and acting. In fact, he started playing musical instruments when he was only about 13 years old and also played in his parents’ band. He reportedly worked as a sound engineer for his stepmother, Tina Turner.
He even released an album called Hard Labor in 1987. Also in 2006, he received a Grammy Award for his work on his father’s 2006 album Risin’ with the Blues. In addition, in 2017, he reportedly made his band debut with Sweet Randi Love under the name “The Love Thang”, releasing the single Freaky!
In addition to music, he is also an actor and producer. He has announced a film called Ike Turner, in which he will be seen as both actor and producer.
Ike Turner Jr. Didn’t Have A Very Good Relationship With His Father
Ike Turner Jr. reportedly did not have a very good relationship with his father, Ike Sr. In fact, his father pulled him out of school when he was only 13 years old and reportedly forced him to work with him.
Later, after his divorce from Tina, he hit him over the head with a nickel-plated .45 pistol because he was working as Tina’s sound engineer. In addition, his father made him count money until his hands turned grey.
In addition to these incidents, Ike Turner Jr. also experienced several other horrific incidents where his parents would be away from home for days at a time and a domestic worker would take care of him.
However, despite all this, he eventually reconciled with his father because he grew up and respected him immensely.
Ike Turner Jr. Marriage, Wife, Children
It is unlikely that a celebrity would keep his personal information away from the media for long. However, this does not seem to be the case for Ike Jr. Despite being so famous, he has somehow managed to keep his life out of the media.
Despite the fact that he has been in the media industry for years, he has not given any information about his love life. In fact, it is not clear whether he is married to his wife. Nor is there any information that he has a girlfriend. It is therefore safe to say that he is currently unmarried.
But what about his children? Obviously, he does not have children either, but it is likely that he simply does not want to tell the world anything about his marriage or his children.
He Is Not On Social Media
Unlike most celebrities, Ike Jr. does not seem to be a big fan of social media. As of 2021, he is not on any social media – not Instagram, not Twitter, not Facebook.
