Ike & Tina Turner with their sons Michael (standing on the left), Ike Jr (sitting on the left), Craig (standing on the right) and Ronnie (sitting on the right), circa 1970.

Ike Jr and Michael are Ike’s kids from a previous relationship with Lorraine Taylor. Craig (1958-2018) was Tina’s eldest son she had at 18 years old with Raymond Hill, a saxophonist in Ike’s band the Kings of Rhythm. Raymond abandoned Tina when she was pregnant. Ike later adopted Craig and legally gave him his last name. Ronnie is Ike and Tina’s only child together born in 1960. She became pregnant with Ronnie while Ike’s common-law wife Lorraine was pregnant with Michael. Ike and Tina married in 1962.

Gary Coleman at home with his parents Sue and W.G. Coleman in 1979.

Gary Coleman had been estranged from his parents since 1989, when Sue Coleman filed a court request to gain control of her son’s estimated $6 million fortune, insisting Gary was not able to handle his finances. Gary countersued and won a $1.3 million settlement, though he eventually declared bankruptcy in 1999. Gary rarely spoke to his parents after that and he left them nothing in his will when he died in 2010.

O.J. Simpson, running back for the Buffalo Bills, poses with his wife, Marguerite, daughter Arnelle, 4, and son Jason, 2, in Buffalo, New York on October 10, 1973. 

In 1973, Simpson became the first player to break the highly coveted 2,000-yard rushing mark with 2,003 total rushing yards and 12 touchdowns. For his performance he won that year’s NFL MVP Award,

NFL player of the year and

The Associated Press NFL Offensive Player of the Year Award. While other players had broken the 2,000-yard mark since Simpson, his record happened when the NFL only had 14-game seasons; as opposed to the now 16-game seasons.
