The Turner family has lost a beloved member.
Ronnie Turner, the youngest son of legendary singer Tina Turner and the late Ike Turner, has died at the age of 62. Ronnie’s wife, Afida Turner, confirmed his passing in a touching post, calling her husband “a true angel.”
“I did the best to the end this time I was no[t] able to save you,” she wrote alongside a Dec. 9 Instagram post of the pair with his mom Tina. “Love you for… 17 years this is very very very bad and I am very mad,” she wrote in the caption of the post. “This is a tragedy u with your brother Craig and your father Ike Turner and Aline rest in paradise… So unfair.”
Shortly after, Tina took to Instagram to mourn her son. “Ronnie, you left the world far too early,” she captioned a shot of herself with her eyes closed. “In sorrow I close my eyes and think of you, my beloved son.”
