In her book, My Love Story Tina Turner opens up about her marriage to Ike Turner who she revealed was abuse in the past. She said that he would hit her in the head and would try to control her psychologically. It left her so damaged that she tried to commit suicide, but survived.
“At my lowest, I convinced myself that death was my only way out. I actually tried to kill myself,” she continued in her book. “I went to my doctor and told him I was having trouble sleeping. Right after dinner, I took all 50 of [the pills he gave me]. I was unhappy when I woke up. But I came out of the darkness believing I was meant to survive.”
Her story is definitely inspiring and is set to hit shelves on October 16th.
