Tina Turner says farewell to her fans! Tina Turner, who married musician Ike Turner after falling in love with him as a teenager, has written and spoken frequently about the years of horr-ifying violence she underwent throughout their marriage.
A new documentary about the artist’s life reveals how he was sincerely commemorated. In the documentary, the 81-year-old diva said she still experiences flashbacks about the ɑbuse she su-ffered from the musician, especially when she was expecting their son Ronnie.
She saw it as a cur-se: “This moment keeps coming back, you’re dreaming, the real vision is here.” The diva is credited with speaking out about domestic ɑbuse in the 1980s, at a time when celebrities around the world or in the press rarely discussed the issue.
On the other hand, Tina claims that she didn’t say these things to get rid of reporters who kept asking her about her relationship with Ike.
“No one talked about se-xual ɑbuse, physical ɑbuse, domestic ɑbuse…” Oprah Winfrey said.
In the documentary, Tina also admitted that her 1978 divorce left her with post-trɑumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which was exacerbated by the many medical issues she had dealt with in recent years.
Her current husband compared her to a soldier returning home from war, describing what it was like when he first saw her.
In 2013, just weeks after marrying producer Erwin Bach, Tina suffered a str0ke. Bowel cɑncer was diagnosed in 2016. Her son Craig committed sui-cide in 2018 at the age of 59 due to loneliness and grief exacerbated by aIcohol consumption.
The documentary not only recalls the singer’s personal misfortunes, but also how she overcame discrimination and harɑssment in her profession. With the release of Private Dancer in 1984, which she considers her true debut, Tina Turner turned 45.
Tina, directed by Oscar winners Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin and which millions of fans see as a farewell, premiered in March at the Berlin Film Festival.
