R.I.P. – Tina Turner Passes Away 5 Months After Son…Prayers Up
I Love Old School Music family…we have lost a true icon today– Tina Turner has died at the age of 83 years young, and just five months after the death of her son, Ronnie Turner.
Here’s what has just been confirmed:
Via TMZ– A statement from Tina’s reps reads, “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tina Turner. With her music and her boundless passion for life, she enchanted millions of fans around the world and inspired the stars of tomorrow. …
“Today we say goodbye to a dear friend who leaves us all her greatest work: her music. All our heartfelt compassion goes out to her family. Tina, we will miss you dearly.”
The 8-time Grammy Award winning singer was still in the midst of mourning her two sons she’d lost in recent years.
The most recent being her 62-year-old son, Ronnie Turner, who passed away in December 2022 from complications of stage 4 metastatic colon carcinoma. Ronnie was an actor and a musician, who adored his mother and his dad, Ike Turner.
In July 2018, Tina’s 59-year-old son, Craig Turner, passed away from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the coroner’s report.
There is only so much pain a person can handle. And while her cause of death is currently unknown, it would not be farfetched if Tina Turner ultimately passed away from a broken heart.
May she and her sons rest in final peace. Her physical presence may be gone, but her legacy will live on forever. 💔
