On Thursday morning, officers from the West Valley Division of the LAPD responded to a radio call about a death investigation in the 17000 block of Magnolia Boulevard, according to a statement provided by the LAPD to ET.
It was revealed by the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner that the identification of the man is “pending,” although it was established that the individual was a male in his 60s.
The first news outlet to break the story was TMZ, which said that the individual who called 911 said Ronnie was having difficulties breathing and had eventually ceased breathing.
The responding paramedics pronounced him dead at the site, even though other people present attempted CPR on him.
Manufactured Funk was Ronnie’s band, in which he sang and played the bass guitar. In addition, he had a cameo in the biopic of his mother, titled What’s Love Got to Do with It, which was released in 1993.

After that, Tina took Ike’s two kids under her wing and raised them as her own until the couple’s divorce in 1978.
