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."
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.
