Long before her demise, the Proud Mary singer was suffering from several mental and physical ailments.

Just two months back, on March 9, Turner took to her Instagram space and shared that she was in ‘great danger’ due to the damage in her kidneys.

For far too long I believed that my body was an untouchable and indestructible bastion.”
