The son of Oscar-winning actress Regina King has died by suicide after celebrating his birthday on Wednesday, January 19th. Ian Alexander Jr. was 26-year-old.

The young man, a deejay and rising musician under the moniker “Desduné,” was the only child of King and her ex-husband, record producer Ian Alexander Sr. The young star had released a single titled “Green Eyes” on Jan. 7 and had performances scheduled in Los Angeles later this month.

“Our family is devastated at the deepest level by the loss of Ian,” the 51-year-old star confirmed in a statement via her representative to People on Friday, Jan. 21. “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.”

Since the heartbreaking announcement, fans and celebrities have sent their condolences to the “The Harder They Fall” star and paid tribute to Ian on their social media platforms, including “The Real” co-host and comedian Loni Love, who shared a selfie of herself and the young man. Love wrote, “I met Ian at @sherrieshepherd’s birthday bash.. He catered the event. Cooked and served all the food and it was delicious!!!! Such a sweet and talented young man… Rest In Peace.”

King often spoke highly of her son, who often was spotted taking photos with his mom on red carpet events. During an interview with the outlet, the “Watchmen” star said that even during the difficulties of being a single parent, nothing could match the love she had for Ian.

“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,” she said at the time. “When you experience it, it’s the most fulfilling [thing] ever.”
