Tina Turner recently spoke to The Times of London about an assortment of topics, ranging from the upcoming stage musical about her life, her Swiss citizenship and her relationship with ex-husband, Ike Turner.
The Turners’ turbulent marriage has been highly documented, especially in the “Proud Mary” singer’s 1993 biopic, What’s Love Got To Do With It. According to the musician, she forgives her ex-husband for his past instances of domestic abuse.
“As an old person, I have forgiven him, but it would not work with him,” the 78-year-old legend explained. “He asked for one more tour with me, and I said, ‘No, absolutely not.’ Ike wasn’t someone you could forgive and allow him back in. It’s all gone, all forgotten.”
