He turned 26 on Wednesday. Our family asks for respectful consideration during this private time. “Our family is devastated at the deepest level by the loss of Ian,” a family statement shared Saturday by a King spokesman said. “She doesn’t really let bad work days or anything come back and ruin the time that we have.

“He is such a bright light who cared so deeply about the happiness of others.” A cause of death was not provided, but according to People , Ian died by suicide. Our family asks for respectful consideration during this private time.” No further details were released. Ian was an artist and DJ who posted on Instagram just three days ago about an upcoming event at Bardot this month. The “One Night in Miami” director shared Alexander with her former husband, record producer Ian Alexander Sr. The two divorced in 2007 after 10 years of marriage. We were taking Kabbalah classes,” King said at the time. But to have you as my mother is the greatest gift I could ask for.

The younger Alexander was a DJ who often accompanied King to red carpet events. He told E! News at the 2019 Golden Globes: “She’s just a super mom.” A week ago, King took to Instagram to urge her followers to support Ian’s new track, “Green Eyes,” sharing a short clip. She doesn’t really let bad work days or anything come back and ruin the time that we have. It’s really awesome to have a mother who I can enjoy spending time with. But to have you as my mother is the greatest gift I could ask for.” The pair had matching tattoos reading “unconditional love” in Aramaic.

“We were taking Kabbalah classes,” King said on The View in 2017. “He said, let’s choose three designs each and not tell each other which ones they are and whichever one is matching, that’s the one we’re going to get tattooed — and we both chose unconditional love.” For his mother’s 50th birthday last year, Alexander posted a tribute on Instagram that read in part: “To be able to watch you take this lifetime by its neck and make it yours is something i (sic) will forever be grateful for. But to have you as my mother is the greatest gift I could ask for.” On Instagram a week ago, King shared a clip of her son’s latest track, “Green Eyes,” urging her followers to check it out.

In an interview with People, she once called her son “an amazing young man” and spoke of the love between mother and child. “You don’t know what unconditional love is. You may say you do, but if you don’t have a child, you don’t know what that is,” said the Oscar, Golden Globe and four-time Emmy winner. “When you experience it, it’s the most fulfilling (thing) ever.” Word spread quickly on social media.

“Deepest condolences and prayers for strength to @ReginaKing. Sending back to her all the warmth and light and support she has extended to me and to so many others,” Sherrilyn Ifill, president and director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, posted on Twitter. King, a star in “If Beale Street Could Talk” and numerous other films, is the recipient of two NAACP Image Awards.
