Tina Turner recalls suicide attempt during marriage to Ike: ‘I came out of the darkness’

“I was so shocked I started to cry,” she said of the first time he beat her. “Ike ordered me to get on the bed. I hated him at that moment. The very last thing I wanted to do was make love, if you could call it that. When he finished, I laid there with a swollen head thinking, ‘You’re pregnant and you have no place to go. You really have gotten yourself into something now.’”
