every time that i put on this tank album…
i was doing some journaling,
listening to this tank album after having a really tiring day,
and i get this horrible news about regina king’s son via “b scott”…
Ian Alexander Jr., the son of actress/director Regina King, has passed away.
Details are scarce, but sources close to the situation exclusively tell lovebscott.com that Ian died from apparent suicide today, two days after his 26th birthday.
regina put out a statement via “people”:
“Our family is devastated at the deepest level by the loss of Ian,” King says in a statement sent to PEOPLE. “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.”
so many people are suffering right now.
the emotional weight of these past two years can be too much to handle.
this is two years of shit we have been dealing with.
not only that,
all the mess in the world and our own battles in our personal lives.
It is A LOT.
after this is all done,
many of us are gonna need extensive therapy.
if you are struggling,
PLEASE reach out to someone.
DO NOT TRY TO DO THIS ALONE IF THE BURDEN IS TOO HEAVY!!!
i’m sending so much love and light to regina king.
that was her only child and he just got engaged to his boyfriend too.
please keep her,
and his fiance in your prayers ya’ll.
it’s so wild that he had so much to celebrate but he wasn’t happy.
rip to ian.
Actress @ReginaKing says New Year’s resolutions don’t “always workout” for her.
“I tend to take time like a lot of us do to just kind of reflect,” King said. “We all want to be included and we should be and when we are all included, things are better.” #CNNNYE pic.twitter.com/QbMaU5pRaS
