Tina Turner's cause of death revealed

 May 27, 2023

It is now being reported that singer Tina Turner died of natural causes. 

Per the Daily Mail:

[Turner's] representatives confirmed to DailyMail.com that the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll died from natural causes.

Turner passed away at the age of 83 on May 24 at her home in Kunsnach, Switzerland. Turner had been living there for many years, first receiving citizenship there in 2013 after she gave up her U.S. citizenship.

In the years leading up to her passing, Turner suffered from a number of health ailments and, at one point, even contemplated suicide.

Turner's health struggles

The Daily Mail details the numerous health ailments that Turner suffered in the years leading up to her death. The outlet appears to have obtained much of this information from Turner's memoir, which the Daily Mail published.

Among Turner's ailments was high blood pressure. She was first diagnosed with high blood pressure back in 1978. But, it was not managed properly, which accelerated damage to her kidneys.

Tina revealed in her memoir that, with the prospect of her kidneys shutting down, she contemplated suicide. In fact, Turner revealed that she even signed up for one of Switzerland's assisted suicide programs.

However, it was at about this time that Turner's husband, Erwin Bach, decided to donate one of his kidneys to Turner. A successful transplant in 2017 allowed Turner to go on living.

This wasn't Turner's only health problem, though. It was not even her only serious health problem. In 2016, Turner was also diagnosed with intestinal cancer.

Turner's passing

Turner's passing was announced via her Instagram account.

The post 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.

Ever since then, tributes have been pouring in on social media.

Turner is survived by her 67-year-old husband, Erwin Bach, and two of her four sons - the other two died before Turner.

When asked by the Guardian how she would like to be remembered, Turner replied, "As the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll. As a woman who showed other women that it is OK to strive for success on their own terms."

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
