Ike Turner’s widow Jeanette Turner has asked Tina Turner to forgive him.
Turner passed away earlier this week (December 12) in San Diego.
Tina Turner’s official statement read: ”Tina hasn’t had any contact with Ike for more than 35 years. No further comment will be made.”
However Jeanette Turner said: “ I know that she was hurt. But there’s something called forgiveness and I know Ike really forgave himself, which is really hard to do.”
She added: “I’m not defending what he did. I’m not saying he didn’t do what he did when he was with Tina or me. But he was a human being. And being all of that, he’s still a child-like person- pure and a good person always willing to help people.”
She told EURweb: “He was a human being and he helped Tina… he helped a lot of people.”
