Tina Turner’s son Ronald “Ronnie” Turner reportedly died Thursday. He was 62.
Police received an 911 call Thursday morning from a person who said Ronnie was outside her home and was struggling to breathe, TMZ reported. Moments later, the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s son stopped breathing completely, according to the report.
Paramedics rushed to the San Fernando Valley site and attempted CPR, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Ronnie’s widow Afida confirmed the news on Instagram.
“My god, Ronnie Turner is a true angel [sic] soul highly spiritual my husband my best friend my baby idein [sic] mom your nurse i did the best to the end this time i was no [sic] To be able to save you for those 17 years that’s very very very bad I’m very angry 😡,” she captioned a carousel of photos of her late husband.

While Ronnie was reportedly suffering from health issues, including cancer, it’s unclear what caused the medical emergency.
