Aretha Franklin’s final days were peaceful and her ex-husband Glynn Turman said she was alert and aware.
The actor visited Franklin at her home in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan just days before she passed away and made peace with the woman he was married to for six years. Stevie Wonder joined Turman for the visit and Glynn said that Aretha was quote “strong”, until the end.
“She woke up, opened her eyes and made contact. It was a wonderful thing to see,” he said. “I could tell by the look in her eye, she knew it was me.”
The couple who were married for six years, remained friends after their divorce.
“I was holding her hand at her bedside, holding her wrist,’ the 71-year-old said. “Her pulse was so strong and full of life. Her breathing was such a defiance of what was attacking her.”
The Queen Sugar star appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, were he spoke about the love he and Aretha shared and his Ex’s great sense of humor.
