Together, Lahna and Ralphie worked on several projects, including “The Perfect 10” podcast which they co-hosted together.
But, what looked like the perfect relationship started crumbling. After almost 10 years of marriage, Ralphie May filed for divorce in 2015. Lahna Turner requested full custody of their two children.
The couple quoted “irreconcilable differences” as the cause for their divorce. A little later, Turner claimed that Ralphie May had been physically abusive to her.
She also claimed that she had struggled trying to get him in a healthier shape by losing the extra weight which had been plaguing his health and wellbeing through the years, but he had refused.
It was a fact that the comedian had suffered from obesity since the age of 16, and had experienced numerous health problems and emergencies through the years, including a nearly fatal pulmonary embolism in 2011.

The cause of death was cardiac arrest. The coroner also claimed that the comedian’s obesity was a contributing factor to his untimely death.
His death was confirmed on his Twitter profile by his representatives. May had been found dead in his residence in Las Vegas.
Following his death, Turner tweeted, “I loved Ralphie with all my heart. We shared a wonderful life and made beautiful children together. No one has ever made me laugh or cry harder. You will always be with us. Rest in peace, my sweet.”
Lahna Turner became the producer of the “Ralphie May: Imperfectly Yours,” and the “Ralphie 360” documentaries.
