Ike and Tina Turner had one child together, a son named Ronald Turner. Tina had one other child, a son named Raymond Craig Turner, from an earlier relationship. Ike had five other children, sons Ike Turner Jr. and Michael Turner, and daughters Mia Turner, Linda Trippeter and Twanna Turner Melby.
Tina's son, Raymond Craig, has the last name Turner, despite having a different father. Ike's ex-wife, Lorraine Taylor, left the couple's two sons, Ike Jr. and Michael, with Ike and Tina in 1960. When Ike and Tina divorced in 1976, Ike sent all four of the couple's sons to live with Tina. He later said Tina was a bad parent, who denied that and said that Ike never paid any child support.
