Bonnie Pointer of The Pointer Sisters in a piece of new evidence died after going into cardiac arrest, as the cause of the Grammy Award-winning artist’s death is listed as cardiopulmonary arrest.
This was revealed from her death certificate as was obtained by TMZ, which also shows that Bonnie whose real name is Patricia Eva Pointer died on June 8 at 3:37 AM. The document also listed her as divorced, and an entertainer in the music industry for 50 years.
It was also gathered from the document that there were other underlying health issues she’d been battling for about a decade, including liver disease. Recall that Bonnie Pointer, one of the OGs of the wildly famous group of sisters in the ’70s, died earlier this month.
Her sister, Anita said, “It is with great sadness that I have to announce to the fans of The Pointer Sisters that my sister, Bonnie died this morning. Our family is devastated, on behalf of my siblings and I and the entire Pointer family, we ask for your prayers at this time.”
Bonnie Pointer, 69, was best known for her cover of “Heaven Must Have Sent You,” which peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. She won a Grammy Award for Best Vocal by a Duo or Group in the country category for their hit, “Fairytale.”
