The whole world was shocked after the death of Tina Turner, which happened this Wednesday in his home in Küsnacht, near Zurich (Switzerland), after a long fight against illness. A family spokesperson reported this through a statement.
At the age of 83, the world of culture and music has been completely destroyed after more than half a century of professional career due to the loss of the composer, dancer, actor and choreographer of American origin.
But Tina’s life is a clear example of more shadows than lights, especially in the personal sphere. And that is that she was a clear example of resilience and resistance against the hard blows that life dealt her. Examples of this are the beats and abused by her ex-husband, Ike Turner, who died in 2007.
In her autobiography, published in 1986, Tina disclosed the details of the abuse she suffered at the hands of Ike, which the latter admitted years later, and in a strange way, through her memoirs: “Of course, I hit Tina… We had fights and there were times when I knocked her to the ground without thinking. But I never beat her up.”.
The truth is that Ike Turner physically abused the artist during the time they were together, even using cans to walk or even boil cups of coffee. Tina herself took the lead in revealing how she felt the day they got married: “I was sad all the time, about to cry, but there was no escape. We couldn’t leave until Ike was ready, and he had a great time… It would drive him crazy, which could lead to a beating and I certainly didn’t want a black eye on my wedding day.”
When she was able to face it, she overcame that painful and bitter situation, the artist took into account what was really happening: “I convinced myself that I was happy, and I was happy for a short time, because of the thought that I was. really married it was meaningful to me. For Ike, it was just another transaction.”
Another of the events that marked the life of the deceased was the suicide of one of her sons, Craig Raymond Turner, who was found dead in his home in Los Angeles in 2018 at the age of 59.
