Does Tina Turner Have A Drinking Problem?

| Filed under: Sad SadTina TurnerRehab


Oh no! We really hope this isn't true!

She's been through enough!

The National Enquirer is reporting that Tina Turner has become so overwhelmed with the tragic loss of her sister and her former stepson Ike Jr.'s grave illness that she's started to drink heavily enough for friends to be concerned that she needs rehab!

Her biographer, Mark Bego, reveals:

"Losing Alline and seeing Ike Jr. so sick has hit her like a one-two punch. Tina has been in misery ever since her sister's death. And now Ike Jr. has taken a turn for the worse. Her friends fear she is drinking heavily in private to get over the pain. Those closest to her are beginning to believe that going into rehab may be her only salvation."

So tragic!

Here's hoping that if this, again, is in fact the case, that her friends and loved ones can get her the help that she needs before it's too late!

She's getting up there in age, she needs to be taking care of herself if she wants to stay healthy!

Poor thing! You're in our thoughts, gurl.

Stay strong.

    Wow. Really? The Enquirer is reporting that? Where's the story about Gaga's drug abuse and all the people around her that are worried that the Star is reporting? Why aren't you reporting that story? Is it because you're one of her enablers? Hypocrite.

  2. 2

    Really? You're gonna talk trash about a LEGEND because THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER reported it?

    YOU as well as everyone else knows that what they write is BULL SHIT!

    I'm in shock that a sit such as yours, Moorio, with an impeccable reputation is reposting this trash about a living legend, but you are not posting anything about caca's cocaine addiction or your meth habit.

  5. 5

    Complete BS… She's Buddhist, she doesn't drink.

  6. 6

    There are certain celebrities that the public, fans, media don't fuck with because they're beyond inspirational and genuinely amazing…….leave it up to this suckfish to try and go there. Keep Tina off you radar puto, don't you dare comemierda

    Leave Tina alone. If you really care about her, you wouldn't post the story.

    hahaha Tina & alcoholism? Yeah right…that's almost as hilarious as accusing the Dalai Lama of being a boozer :D

    Kudos intelligent readers for seeing through Mario Lardveranda's massive hypocrisy. If pig-vomit Mario is such a wonderful friend to (un)Lady(like) Gargoyle, why has he not attempted an intervention for her documented cocaine addiction? ENABLER!!

    Have all her old friends faded away? Gotten too busy?
    She might need some TLC, for sure.

    Why would you even bother posting something The National Inquirer printed? We all know there's a 99.99% chance of it being complete bullshit.

    This is the most unbelievable thing I've ever read on this site. Tina Turner? You can't tear that legend.

  13. 13

    imo she's a true legend, she's earned the right to booze it up :)

    leave Tina alone. Why don't you report all the magazine stories about gaga's drug & alcohol filled nights? You pick & choose who, & what you want to "report" on. Don't go there with Tina. Tina is a legend & amazing woman.

    I have three sisters that I adore. If anything happened to them, I'd drink too. Piss Off, Enquirer!!!
