Tina Turner admitted that she considered assisted suicide in 2016 before her husband Erwin Bach donated his kidney to her.

The beloved star died at the age of 83 after battling with health troubles for years.

She revealed in her book that at the end of 2016, she signed up to an assisted suicide organization as she mentally prepared herself for the possibility of dying.

In an excerpt of her book published, Turner wrote: ‘It wasn’t my idea of life. But the toxins in my body had started taking over. I couldn’t eat. I was surviving, but not living.

‘I began to think about death. If my kidneys were going, and it was time for me to die, I could accept that. It was OK. When it’s time, it’s really time. I didn’t mind the thought of dying, but I was concerned about how I would go.

‘One of the benefits of living in Switzerland is that assisted suicide is legal, though the patient has to inject the lethal drug herself.

‘There are several organizations that facilitate the process, including Exit and Dignitas. I signed up to be a member of Exit, just in case.

‘I think that’s when the idea of my death became a reality for Erwin. He was very emotional about not wanting to lose me, not wanting me to leave.’
