Tina Turner’s multiple health issues
Long before her demise, the Proud Mary singer was suffering from several mental and physical ailments.
Just two months back, on March 9, Turner took to her Instagram space and shared that she was in ‘great danger’ due to the damage in her kidneys.
“My kidneys are victims of my not realising [sic] that my high blood pressure should have been treated with conventional medicine. I have put myself in great danger by refusing to face the reality that I need daily, lifelong therapy with medication. For far too long I believed that my body was an untouchable and indestructible bastion.”
In her HBO documentary titled ‘Tina’, which came out in 2021, Turner revealed that she was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder due to the domestic abuse she suffered in her marriage with her ex-husband and music partner, Ike Turner.
Tina Turner also shared details about her stroke in 2013, three months after her second marriage to Erwin Bach, and her battle with intestinal cancer in 2016. She also suffered from kidney failure in 2017.
May her soul rest in peace.
