Tina Turner’s cause of death revealed

The cause of death of Tina Turner, who died Wednesday at age 83, has been confirmed.

Representatives of the “Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll” told the Daily Mail on Thursday that Turner died of natural causes. The singer wrote about her medical issues, including cancer, high blood pressure and a kidney transplant, and her publicist previously said she died after a long but unspecified illness.

“My kidneys are victimized by not realizing my hypertension should have been treated with conventional medicine,” Turner wrote in March. “I put myself in great danger by refusing to face the reality that I need lifelong, daily therapy with medication.”

“For too long, I believed my body was an untouchable, indestructible bastion,” she continued.

Turner was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2016, which she discussed in her memoir, “My Love Story.” While doctors caught the disease early and removed his malignant tumors, surgery delayed his kidney transplant for a year, according to Today.

Turner died peacefully at her home in Küsnacht, near Zurich, Switzerland, a representative told Reuters.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tina Turner,” read a statement Thursday on her Instagram. “With her music and boundless passion for life, she has enchanted millions of fans around the world and inspired the stars of tomorrow.”

Turner’s death came five months after the death of his son Ronnie and nearly five years after the death of Craig, his eldest.

Turner married his “true love,” music director Erwin Bach, in 2013. He donated his kidney to Turner in 2017.

“I’ve been on such a crazy roller coaster in the four years since my marriage that even I have trouble keeping up with my medical disasters,” Turner wrote in her memoir. “High blood pressure. Stroke. Bowel cancer. No! No! Bad order. Stroke.”

Turner has previously said she’s not afraid of death, but rather “curious” and “excited” to find out what lies beyond.

A dynamic force in music whose songs have become anthems dedicated to resilience, the Grammy-winning singer has left an undeniable mark. She was remembered on social media by the likes of the former president barack obamaElton John and Mick Jagger.
