What's Death Got to Do With It?

4/6/2008 12:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ike TurnerIke Turner's ex-wife has filed a claim against the controversial dead rock 'n' roller's estate. And no, it's not Tina!

Former 'Ikette" Jeanette Bazzell Turner claims she has a right to Ike's stuff because of community property laws and now she wants the courts to take a look at her case. She married the former Mr. Tina Turner in Las Vegas in 1995 -- and divorced him in 2000.

Turner died last December.

She's an ex-wife NOT a widow and therefore is entitled to nothing more than what she got in the divorce.

Their divorce was settled 8 yrs. ago. She has no further claim to Ike, or his estate, unless he purposely remembered her in his will.

Ike Turner went back to being small-time after Tina divorced him. And the previous poster is correct. She took nothing from him but his name. Educate yourself before you mouth off.

I have to agree with the last two comments. Tina walked away with nothing but her name and made her own money, so like the last comment, "educate your self first".

I drive by Ike's house in San Diego nearly every day. It is definitely basic middle-class, and I think he was renting it at the time of his death. I don't think he has much of an "estate."

#7 you got to be kidding right???Tina Turner made it on her own. She wanted nothing from the abuser but her name back I admire and respect her totally. She looks great and I wish I had her body, her plastic surgeon as well. She looks awesome.

She's an ex therefore she gets NOTHING. You left, so stay gone. Get a job GREEDY LADY, just get a job, cause he's gone and your relationship was OVER a long time ago. I just hate it when women get all lovey dovey after the fact especially when there
is money and assets involved for gain. People sure do have alot of nerve these days. Where is all is ENTITLEMENT ISSUES
coming from. Is time people got real and got what they truely deserve which in this case is NOTHING!!!!!!
