Lahna Turner's Personal Life

Lahna Turner married Ralphie May on July 3, 2005, and they gave birth to their two children: April June May & August James May.

The duo first met during an open mic night at the now-closed Houston club, Laff Stop. They did work together during their tumultuous marriage on a podcast called The Perfect 10. And she is still recording the podcast by that name.

Although their marriage started promisingly, it later turned terrible. Turner filed for divorce in October of 2015 and asked for sole physical custody of the kids and also for joint legal custody.

According to sources, Ralphie was devastated by this development. Turner cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for asking for a divorce. The divorce had not legally finalized at the time of Ralphie’s death due to a cardiac arrest on Friday, October 6, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada.  

The duo was married for almost ten years. However, Turner found it increasingly difficult to live with Ralphie. Turner wrote about the divorce for Laughspin and said that Ralphie was “never quite the same” after he was hospitalized for pulmonary embolisms.  

Some sources said that Turner made a lot of effort to get Ralphie healthy, but he didn’t want to lose weight. And in 2017 February, TMZ obtained documents from the divorce proceedings, in which Turner claimed that Ralphie was suicidal, abusive, and used drugs.  

Turner also claimed that Ralphie couldn’t be left alone with the children and was physically abusive towards her. She also wanted a restraining order against May, but the judge denied her request.

Despite the problems in their marriage, she had a lot of affection for Ralphie. And after his death, Turner took to Twitter to express her sorrow. She wrote,

“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.”
