The eight-time Grammy award-winner, Tina Turner, said that she can’t figure out what compelled her son, Craig Turner, to take his life because he had so much going for himself and had even found love.
“I still don’t know what took him to the edge because at that stage he had said to me that he had never met a woman that he felt that way about,” Turner said.
At the time of the death, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office said that Craig Turner died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his home in Studio City, California. He was 59.
Despite her son’s heartbreaking and unexpected death, Turner said she intends to “be around for a while,” and isn’t worried about her own mortality in the least bit.
“Death is not a problem for me,” she said before adding; “I really don’t mind leaving.”
