Well, Ike used to hit her and she was a victim of domestic violence at the time.

Turner stated in many interviews regarding physical abuse. Furthermore, according to Tina,

“There was violence because he had this fear that I was going to leave him. The other women, because I didn’t love him that way … the other women weren’t so bad, but it was the constant, constant ill-treatment.”

The total story was documented in a biopic named, “What’s Love Got to do with It”. In this documentary, Angela Bassett played the role of Tina and Laurence Fishburne of Ike. However, Tina couldn’t handle the violence and she parted ways with Ike Turner in the year 1978. Not only this but Turner also dealt with her health issues throughout her life.
