Regina King Is Mourning The Loss Of Her Only Child, Ian Alexander Jr.

January 22, 2022 / Posted by:

Regina King is experiencing an unfathomable loss and a living nightmare after her only child, Ian Alexander Jr., has died. People reports that Ian died by suicide. Ian had just turned 26 on Wednesday.

After there were reports on the internet of Ian’s death, Regina confirmed the horrible news in a statement, where she lifted her son as a bright light.

“Our family is devastated at the deepest level by the loss of Ian. He is such a bright light who cared so deeply about the happiness of others. Our family asks for respectful consideration during this private time. Thank you.”

There are many, many layers of tragic to this beyond heartbreaking situation because TMZ says that Ian died on his birthday. And Regina King’s birthday was on January 15.

Ian Alexander Jr. was the son of Regina King and her husband, record producer Ian Alexander Sr. Regina and Ian Sr. were married for 10 years before divorcing in 2017. Like his father, Ian Jr. got into music and was a deejay. Regina and her son were very close. They were so close that they even got matching tattoos, which read “unconditional love” in Aramaic. And this past New Year’s, Regina made an appearance with Ian on CNN’s NYE special and they were with their family who was also celebrating the love between Ian and his partner.

Last year on Regina’s 50th birthday, Ian let us all know that the Avengers can exit stage left because his mother’s really the one with the superpowers.

All the love to Regina. May Ian Alexander Jr rest in peace.
