"With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model."
Tina Turner has died at 83. The Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll's death was announced on Instagram Wednesday. Turner died Tuesday, after a long illness in her home in Küsnacht near Zurich, Switzerland, according to her manager. She became a Swiss citizen a decade ago. "It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tina Turner," the statement said. "With her music and her boundless passion for life, she enchanted millions of fans around the world and inspired the stars of tomorrow. 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." #tinaturner
Tina, who braved domestic abuse to become an international star, also lost a child, survived a stroke and cancer. She hasn't performed in years and her most recent documentary was filmed with her seated for the entire time. She had suffered ill health in recent years, being diagnosed with intestinal cancer in 2016 and having a kidney transplant in 2017. #RIP
