Ike Turner’s widow ask Tina Turner to ‘forgive’ him

Jeanette Turner pleads with star

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.”
