Singer and legend Tina Turner died yesterday at her home in Switzerland, aged 83. Her spokesperson announced the death and said Tina had been battling a serious illness for a long time. Now, representatives for the singer have confirmed to DailMail that the singer died of natural causes, but had been battling gastrointestinal cancer and high blood pressure for around four decades.
After the news of the death of the goddess arrived, many people began to remember the singer’s autobiography, in which she revealed that in 2016 she was struggling with a health problem so serious that she was considering asking for assisted dying and even registered with such an organization and began to mentally prepare for the end. Then her husband, Erwin Bach, gave her a precious gift – his other kidney, but Tina’s kidneys had suffered badly from high blood pressure.
It is believed that the last interview she gave to the media was in April this year when she spoke to The Guardian, among others, about how she hoped the world would remember her after her death. How do you want to be remembered – was the question.
“As queens of rock and roll. As a woman who showed other women that it’s nothing wrong with striving for success on your own terms.”
In the same interview, she said nothing about getting older scared her. Life is full of adventures and it welcomes each day with open arms.
Tina married her husband, Erwin, ten years ago, but they had been a couple for three decades.
Tina’s story is the story of a woman who grew up in adversity in a small town but managed to climb to the highest peaks of the record ladder. She was a woman who had the courage to break up with the abuser who put her on the map, had the courage to share her painful experience with the world, and then managed to become an even brighter star after having regained his freedom and independence. At the time Tina opened up about the violence, it was unheard of for women to do it so publicly, because the discussion isn’t as open as it is today. She told her story of the world seeing her and her husband, Ike Turner, as a fabulous team of talented couples, when that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Both yesterday and today, fans of the singer traveled to her home in Switzerland to pay their respects, where Tina had lived for nearly three decades. Flowers and cards were left outside the house and many guests stood there with lit candles to bid farewell to their idol.
She leaves a big void and will long be remembered as the queen of rock – just as she herself had hoped.
