Ian Alexander, Jr. has died by apparent suicide. He celebrated his 26th birthday on Wednesday.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. – Matthew 5:4
In a statement released to multiple media outlets, the actress/producer confirmed that her son whom she called a “bright light” has passed.
“Our family is devastated at the deepest level by the loss of Ian,” King says in a statement. “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.”
Ian was her only child with ex-husband record exec Ian Alexander, Sr.
My prayers are with Regina and her family as they mourn the loss of her beloved son.
