Ike Turner is gone, but from 1993 thru his last day 12/12/2007, he remained a "straight man" was on stage when he saw a skit on him & Tina & told the actor that "At least he didn't have him beat up in a car like Larry Fishburne Did." However there were things that Ike didn't do in that movie & said so. Some say he put art into wife beating & beat up Tina like Joan Crawford beat up her adopted daughter Christina. Phrases like "We'll be on top of the subject like Ike on Tina!" The closest good fight scene next to Ike & Tina was a Popeye episode where Bluto tries to kill off The Spinach supply & tries to finish Popeye off. To me it reminded of Ike beating up Tina. Another reminder is "Beetle Bailey" when Sarge beats up Pvt. Bailey & he's looks flattended out. Is that what Ike used to do with Tina? Also another round was The Powerpuff Girls taking on The Rowdyrough Boys and it was Three Ikes Vs. Three Tinas. Ike like Joan Crawford left a legacy & both players had good merits & bad merits & I hope there together in the afterlife talking about there Tinas.

I am so glad she did not make some hypocrtical statement about what a great man and a great talent he was. She seems to be saying "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything!"

That's odd. The story below says they divorced in 1978. According to my math that's 29 years, not 35.
