ROCKED by ill­ness and heartache, sickly singer Tina Turner has been hit with a deadly stom­ach can­cer di­ag­no­sis, ac­cord­ing to chilling re­ports — and in­sid­ers fear she may have just six months to live!

The dev­as­tat­ing news bared by Glenn Cosby’s V103 ra­dio show comes as the su­per­star, 78, is still reel­ing over her 59-year-old son Craig’s death in July from a self­in­flicted gun­shot wound.

“Tina had a fond­ness for Craig be­cause he rep­re­sented a more in­no­cent time in her life,” says a source, who calls his sui­cide the kind of tragedy “she won’t re­cover from.”

Tina her­self said scat­ter­ing her first­born’s ashes was her “sad­dest day” as a mother.

Though the plucky singer has been no stranger to come­backs, the deck is stacked against her, pals fear.

Hav­ing barely re­cov­ered from a 2013 stroke, Tina later learned she had in­testi­nal can­cer and needed a kid­ney trans­plant. Though her hubby, Er­win Bach, gave her one of his own kid­neys in 2016, her body is now re­ject­ing the life-sav­ing or­gan!

Tina did not com­ment on the re­ports sweep­ing the in­ter­net,

but New York in­ternist Dr. Stu­art Fis­cher, who has not treated the star, says the new stom­ach can­cer “is a vir­tual death sen­tence” based on her phys­i­cal prob­lems.

“The stom­ach can­cer it­self can be a fa­tal di­ag­no­sis, but the re­jected kid­ney makes her prog­no­sis even worse!” he says.

Even Tina ad­mit­ted treat­ment for can­cer can be harm­ful for an or­gan re­cip­i­ent af­ter com­ing clean about her ear­lier bout with the po­ten­tially fa­tal dis­ease.

“The drugs used to con­trol my can­cer would be in di­rect con­flict with the drugs nec­es­sary for a suc­cess­ful trans­plant,” she said in her me­moir, My Love Story.

“Chemo­ther­apy and ra­di­a­tion ther­apy are im­muno­sup­pres­sants and leave the pa­tient vul­ner­a­ble to in­fec­tion,” Dr. Fis­cher notes. “That would be dev­as­tat­ing to the kid­ney re­cip­i­ent.”

Prior to her trans­plant, Tina said she “didn’t mind the thought of dy­ing” be­fore her hus­band was found to be a com­pat­i­ble donor. But her last days may now be a cold, hard re­al­ity, be­cause if her kid­ney needs to be re­moved, Dr. Fis­cher be­lieves her time will be short — and grim.

“She would need to be placed back on dial­y­sis, which would make for a brief and hor­ri­ble life,” Dr. Fis­cher says. “She’d have to pray to beat the odds to live more than six months.”
