Tina Turner Reveals She Underwent Kidney Transplant With Husband's Donated Organ
The legendary performer writes in a new book that she required the lifesaving surgery in 2016.
In her forthcoming autobiography, legendary performer Tina Turner reveals she underwent a kidney transplant in recent years and the donor was her own husband.
The 78-year-old singer writes in "Tina Turner: My Love Story," that she was suffering from kidney disease and her kidney's were functioning at just 20 percent when her German music executive husband, Edwin Bach, proposed a solution.
"[He] shocked me by saying that he wanted to give me one of his kidneys." Turner writes, per the AP, saying she was "overwhelmed by the enormity of his offer."
In 2016, Turner accepted and her husband's selflessness has allowed her to move forward with her life and pen what will undoubtedly be an epic tour of a chanteuse's singular life.
Turner and Bach, who married in 2013 after a years-long relationship, live together in Switzerland.
The UK's Daily Mail newspaper got some advance excerpts from the autobiography, which is due for release in Britain and the U.S. this month.
