Ike and Tina Turner

Long before there was Whitney and Bobby and Rihanna and Chris and Kim and Eminem the world's most famous bad news couple was Ike and Tina Turner. Ike and Tina were a successful double act through the 1960s and 70s, but behind closed door Ike was an extremely abusive and controlling husband. Tina finally got the courage to leave Ike in the late 1970s and found herself practically destitute surviving on food stamps. Amazingly Tina was able to make a phenomenal comeback in the 1980s, by which time she was already in her forties, with hit albums like 'Private Dancer'. The relationship between Ike and Tina is gruellingly revealed in the hit film 'What's love got to do with it'.
