Tina Turner’s final photo shows the legendary singer at home in her sweatpants, reminiscing on “some of the proudest moments” of her life.
Her most recent photo was posted to her Twitter account in March 2021, over two years before her death Wednesday at the age of 83.
In the post, Turner — born Anna Mae Bullock in Nutbush, Tennessee, in 1939 — shared her anticipation for her then-upcoming documentary “TINA” on HBO.
“Only 5 days left! This Saturday, the documentary ‘TINA’ will be released. I am so excited to share this movie with you – seeing the concert scenes made me relive some of the proudest moments of my life. I simply had to sing along and dance around my living room!” she wrote.
Wearing a black sweatshirt and sweatpants and rocking no makeup, the rock ‘n’ roll legend is seemingly dancing along with the fans on-screen during the concert portions of her documentary, which was nominated for three primetime Emmy Awards.
Turner had a remarkable career winning 12 Grammy Awards and selling more than 100 million records worldwide — but she battled a turbulent personal life, which was detailed in the two-part documentary. The documentary was considered a “goodbye” to her fans.
The news of Turner’s death was shared on her Instagram account Wednesday.
“It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tina Turner. With her music and her boundless passion for life, she enchanted millions of fans around the world and inspired the stars of tomorrow,” the statement read. “Today we say goodbye to a dear friend who leaves us all her greatest work: her music. All our heartfelt compassion goes out to her family. Tina, we will miss you dearly.”
A spokesperson for “The Best” singer announced she died peacefully at her home in Kusnacht near Zurich, Switzerland.
While an official cause of death has not been released, Turner died following a bout with cancer, a stroke and kidney troubles.
On March 9, in honor of International World Kidney Day, the “What’s Love Got to Do With It” singer revealed that she put herself “in great danger” — just months before her death.
“My kidneys are victims of my not realizing that my high blood pressure should have been treated with conventional medicine,” she wrote in the caption. “I have put myself in great danger by refusing to face the reality that I need daily, lifelong therapy with medication. For far too long I believed that my body was an untouchable and indestructible bastion.”
The legend suffered other significant health issues later in her life as well.
She had reportedly suffered a stroke in 2013, three years before being diagnosed with intestinal cancer in 2016. She underwent a kidney transplant in April 2017.
