Tina Turner Shared Ominous Instagram Post Saying She Wished She'd Taken Better Care of Her Kidneys Two Months Before Her Death

Rock 'n' Roll star Tina Turner shared a grim Instagram post about her kidney failure two months before her untimely death - as former President Barack Obama paid his respects. 

Turner, 83, opened up about her health struggles on International World Kidney Day on March 9, revealing she put herself in 'grave danger' by not taking her 1978 hypertension diagnosis seriously.

'My kidneys are victims of my not realising that my high blood pressure should have been treated with conventional medicine,' Turner wrote. 'I have put myself in great danger by refusing to face the reality that I need daily, lifelong therapy with medication.

The What's Love Got to Do With It singer died on Wednesday in her Switzerland home, following an unspecified illness. It remains unclear if her kidneys directly contributed to her death.
