AceShowbiz – Bonnie Pointer died from going into cardiac arrest, her death certificate has revealed.
The Pointer Sisters star, who founded the family group with younger sister June in 1969, died last month (Jun20) and, in papers obtained by TMZ, it’s been confirmed she died of a heart attack.
The document also indicates that the singer had been suffering from liver disease for about a decade prior to her passing, as well as cirrhosis of the liver.
Bonnie left the group in the mid-1970s to pursue a successful solo career with hits like “Heaven Must Have Sent You”. She released three albums as a Motown Records artist and found love at the label, marrying executive Jeffrey Bowen.
The singer is the second Pointer sister to pass away – June Pointer lost her battle with cancer in 2006.
