In the same year, Ronnie Turner wed Afida Turner. I tried my hardest to the end this time, but I could not save you, the French singer wrote in an emotional tribute and response that she put online today. I’ve loved you for 17 years, but this is terrible, and I’m furious. This is a tragedy; may your father, Ike Turner, Craig, and Aline rest in paradise. So unjust.
