Tina Turner's son Ronnie dead at 62 after '911 call alerted cops that he was unable to breath' | The Sun

TINA Turner's son Ronnie has reportedly died at the age of 62.

Police are said to have received a 911 call on Thursday morning from a person who said Ronnie Turner was struggling to breathe outside their home.


Paramedics then rushed to the address in San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, where bystanders were attempting CPR.

Despite their best efforts, Tina's second-born, Ronnie, could not be saved and was pronounced dead at the scene, TMZ reports.

It is unclear what led to the medical emergency and whether it was related to Ronnie's existing health issues which included cancer.

Tributes have since flooded in for the star, who made a name for himself in Hollywood playing a part in the 1992 biopic of his mother's life, What's Love Got To Do With It?

One fan wrote on Twitter: "My most sincere condolences to @tinaturner and @AfidaTurner… May Ronnie rest in peace."

Another said: "My sincerest condolences to @tinaturner on the loss of her youngest son Ronnie Turner, just four years after losing her first son."

A third added: "No parent should ever have to bury one of their children. Prayers sent for Tina and the rest of the family and friends."

The tragic news comes less than four years after Tina's oldest son, Craig Raymond Turner, died by suicide in 2018, having shot himself at his California home.
