Tina Turner’s Son Found Dead after Dying Suddenly at 62

Tina Turner’s son Ronnie has been found dead outside his Los Angeles home after dying suddenly, his family confirmed Friday.

Ronnie Turner was 62 years old.

TMZ revealed Friday morning that Ronnie Turner was found unresponsive by neighbors on Thursday.

However, their efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.

A cause of death has not been announced.

It also remains unclear whether his death was related to his previous cancer diagnosis.

His famous mother, 83, has yet to comment on his death.

After news broke of Ronnie’s death, his wife, Afida, has now posted a tribute to her late husband.

She shared photos of the times they have spent together along with a heartfelt tribute.

“I did the best to the end this time,” she wrote.

“I was not able to save you.”

Ronnie’s death comes just four years after the singer’s older son, Craig, shot himself dead in July 2018.

Turner gave birth to Craig when she was just 18, having gotten pregnant by saxophone player Raymond Hill.

Police were said to be first called to Ronnie’s home Thursday morning.

A person called to report that Ronnie was struggling to breathe outside their Los Angeles home.

Paramedics then rushed to the home in San Fernando Valley, where they found bystanders attempting CPR.

But their efforts ultimately failed and Ronnie was pronounced dead at the scene.

On Friday, his grief-stricken wife posted a rambling tribute to her late husband.

She called Ronnie a “true angel” with a “huge soul who is highly spiritual.”

She said he was her “best friend, my baby.”

“Love you for this 17 years,” Afida wrote.

“This is very, very, very bad, I am very mad,” she added.

“This is a tragedy, [you] with your brother Craig and your father Ike Turner and Aline,” she continued as she wished he would “rest in Paradise.”

“So unfair,” she concluded.
