For the first time, Tina Turner admits that she attempted to commit suicide while married to her ex-husband Ike. Radar Online reports that the singer writes about one of the darkest times in her life in her forthcoming autobiography, My Love Story. At one point in her stormy marriage with Ike Turner, the singer tried to kill herself as a way to escape her husband's constant abuse.
Turner has been very vocal about her incredibly abusive marriage. Not only did he physically beat her up, but he cheated on her and mentally abused her too. According to People, she writes that she realized that they would never have a normal relationship because Ike knew that she was going to be his "money-maker."
"He needed to control me, economically and psychologically, so I could never leave him."
