MUSICAL icon Cher has revealed that she visited Tina Turner before her death.
“I started going to visit her because I thought, ‘I need to put this time into our friendship, so she knows we haven’t forgotten her,’” Cher, 77, said on MSNBC on May 24.
“So we all took turns going and spending time with her [at her home in Switzerland] and it made her happy.”
Cher added: “Someone said [to me], ‘When you two laugh together, it is the funniest thing that you could ever possibly want to hear’ because we both have such distinct laughs.
“But, she was really happy and, like, the first time I went [to visit] she was laying on a little chaise that she looks out at the lake with … and she said, ‘I can’t spend too much time’ and then five hours later we were laughing like crazy and she wanted to get up and show everything that she’d bought in her house.”
“She was having a good time in spite of the fact that she was really sick and not wanting people to know about it,” Cher said to the outlet. “She had her dialysis machine in her house and so that’s how she was doing.”
Tina’s representatives confirmed to The Daily Mail that she died of natural causes following a long, unspecified illness.
