The world is being inundated with tributes following the recent passing of the renowned music legend, Tina Turner. Reports reveal that the iconic singer had been grappling with serious health issues for several years, bravely battling cancer, a stroke, and kidney failure.
The announcement of her demise at the age of 83 was communicated yesterday via her official Instagram page, triggering an outpouring of grief across the internet. “Through her music and boundless zest for life, she captivated millions of fans worldwide and served as an inspiration to future stars,” stated the social media post.
“While we bid farewell to a cherished friend, she leaves behind her greatest masterpiece: her music.” Although the passing of the “Simply The Best” singer may have appeared sudden, as no prior information hinted at her imminent demise, new reports from Radar Online suggest that Turner had a premonition about her time drawing near.
According to Radar, the self-proclaimed Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll made it a priority in recent years to settle all matters concerning her estate, aiming to prevent any family disputes over the fortune she would leave behind. Struggling with her aforementioned health complications, Turner reportedly arranged her final will in 2021.
The celebrated singer-songwriter, originally from Brownsville, had an estimated estate valued at $270 million and had even sold her music catalog to BMG record label for $50 million before her passing. As per Radar Online, a source stated, “Tina is aware that her time is limited, and she wants to ensure everything is in order for her family. She has been dealing with poor health for years and understands that the end is near.”
Indeed, Turner faced numerous tragic setbacks throughout the past decade. She triumphed over intestinal cancer and later underwent a kidney transplant in 2017. In 2018, her eldest son, Craig Turner, tragically took his own life at the age of 59. Earlier this year, another of her children, Ronnie, passed away after experiencing a medical emergency at his home in San Fernando Valley.
“Ronnie, you departed from this world far too early. With a heavy heart, I close my eyes and reminisce about you, my beloved son,” expressed Turner. Many prominent figures, including Sir Mick Jagger, NBA legend Magic Johnson, and Elton John, have paid tribute to the late singer.
