The incredible performer was suffering from a number of mental and physical conditions long before she passed away.
On March 9, just two months ago, Turner posted on her Instagram account that the damage to her kidneys put her in “great danger.”
“My kidneys are victims of my not realising [sic] that my high blood pressure should have been treated with conventional medicine.

For far too long I believed that my body was an untouchable and indestructible bastion.”
