The Lifetime movie star said that she immediately ran to Regina’s aid after receiving the news. She stated:
“She’s (Regina) so strong. More than anything else is, I’m glad I got to hug her. I’m glad I got to look in her eyes. This has been absolutely one of the longest weekends I’ve ever had in my life. It’s like I can’t stop crying. But, she said to tell everybody that she’s gotten y’alls texts. The outpouring of love for her, her family, and her son, she appreciates it.”
“It’s just hard, and I just pray that–what we do more than anything else for our sons, for our children…Covid and everything has got everybody in a dark spot, in a dark place. If y’all see any signs of someone being in distress or if somebody reaches out to you that’s just maybe not having a good day or something. Stop, take a moment to make sure that they’re okay.”
“She is surrounded by so much love, y’all. That was the beautiful thing that, when I got there, our community is right there for her. If you never, ever thought that the African American actresses, talent supports and loves each other, I saw it last night. It made me so proud. And we’re gonna get through this.”
Regina King’s son, Ian Alexander Jr., died by apparent suicide on Jan. 22, 2022. He had just turned 26-years-old.
