At the age of 83, one of the most beautiful voices in the world has passed away. This Wednesday, May 24, 2023, Tina Turner lowered her arms after a ” long illness “ which she had been battling for years. The one who has always been very discreet about her private life, whether at the peak of her career or at the end of her life, remained dignified until the end. Not wishing the “people know”, the singer died at her home in her chalet in Küsnacht, Switzerland. Since then, many personalities have paid tribute to the star, including her daughter-in-law Afida Turner.
While preparations for his funeral are underway, this Sunday, May 28, 2023, his ex-assistant, Eddy Hampton, made some revelations about them. It is in the columns of Mirror that the man confided in the last wishes of the one who was his boss. During this interview, he reveals that the star does not “didn’t want a big public funeral” and that she wanted to be buried in Switzerland, the country in which she ended her life.
“She wanted to be cremated”
Tina Turner’s former assistant continues his revelations, he adds: “She wanted to be cremated and I expect it to be a very private little matter. It will be for his very close friends in Switzerland, and his manager. It won’t be a big family celebration. » Eddy Hampton who has been at her service for more than twenty years confirms that a tribute concert for the queen of rock & roll will surely be organized. Unfortunately the man does not give more information on the course of the latter as well as on the names of the people who will occur.
If there is a question that remains unresolved since the announcement of the death of the interpreter of Proud Mary, it is indeed that of succession. Indeed the star was at the head of a fortune of nearly 270 million dollars, a sum which should have gone to his two sons, Craig and Ronnie, both of whom died before the singer. We can then deduce that part of this inheritance will be attributed to her husband, Erwin Bach as well as to her two adopted sons, Ike Jr and Michael. Another part will no doubt be given to the widow of his youngest son, Afida Turner.
