Ike and Tina Turner with their sons Michael (standing on the left) Ike Jr (sitting on the left), Craig (standing on the right) and Ronnie (sitting on the right) in 1972.
Ike Jr and Michael are Ike’s kids from a previous relationship with Lorraine Taylor. Craig is Tina’s son from a former relationship with Raymond Hill, former saxophonist in Ike’s band the Kings of Rhythm. After Raymond abandoned Tina and their baby Ike adopted Craig and legally gave him his last name. Ronnie is Ike and Tina’s only child together. In her autobiography Tina reveals she became pregnant again in 1968 but she had an abortion when she discovered one of the Ikettes, Ann Thomas was also pregnant with Ike’s baby.
My requests aren’t exactly open at the moment, but I couldn’t pass by this chance to draw my favorite HPCC side character! I’ve only ever seen the original cast so Jeremy Ang Jones will always be Craig for me. This Craig is based off of a sketch I did of him back when I saw the play in February. <3
