Ike was the musical genius, also credited for have written and performed the first 'official' rock 'n roll song. Tina was the fantastic singer/performer known for her super sexy appearance. After sixteen years of a violent marriage where Ike beated up Tina frequently, their relation came to an end. In court Ike retained all monetary assets, Tina was left with the allowance to use the name Turner. Within a few years Tina Turner worked herself back to the absolute top where she would never leave again.
