Tina Turner is finally putting her "saddest moment as a mother" behind her. The iconic singer, who lost her 59-year-old son, Craig Turner, to suicide last July, has sold the Los Angeles-area home where her son was found dead, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
The condo, which was listed for sale on Trulia, had been under the 79-year-old singer's name since 1989.
The property, located in Studio City, underwent a complete remodel in order to hide the horror of Craig Turner's suicide last July.
The "Proud Mary" songstress had her son's former home "staged to perfection" with "new flooring, paint, tiles, fixtures, gourmet kitchen."
She also slashed the price by $40,000 — from $739,000 to $699,000.
The 1,606-square-foot home, built in 1984, has three bedrooms.
Tina confessed she isn't completely sure why her son with saxophonist Raymond Hill made the fateful decision to shoot himself. "I still don't know what took him to the edge," she said, adding that he had fallen in love with a new girlfriend and had spruced up the home. "Because at that stage he had said to me that he had never met a woman that he felt that way about."
"He was bringing her to meet me for his birthday in August. He had decorated his apartment, that I bought him years ago," said Tina. "He had gotten a new job with a prominent real estate company in California, which he was very happy with. I have no idea what pulled him down, except something that followed him with loneliness. I think it was something with being alone."
"He was an introverted person; he was very shy, so I didn't know either, except now when I listen back to our last conversations, I notice a change," she continued. "The last few times we talked, the conversations were different, and I didn't know that until after the suicide."
As it turned out, Tina's late son was distraught over money and relapsed on booze before he shockingly took his own life by shooting himself in the head with a revolver.
According to a coroner's report obtained by Radar, Craig spoke about his financial problems before taking his own life. The shocking report explained that Craig's sister-in-law told police that he "had recent financial problems and was upset the family management had reduced his family income."
The sister-in-law — who discovered Craig's body after entering his home to check on him — further claimed he was a former alcoholic who had "begun to drink again recently."
According to the report, others close to Craig claimed he displayed bizarre behavior in the days leading up to his death. A male informant told authorities that he spoke with Craig six days before his death and observed "he was not his normal self," the report claimed.
Sadly, Craig also left behind three handwritten suicide notes on the kitchen counter the day he shot himself, the report revealed.
