Whatever thoughts Tina Turner had about the death last week of her ex-husband, Ike Turner, she kept to herself. Her spokes woman told the BBC: "Ike and Tina Turner had no contact in 35 years, and no further comment will be made."
But judging from the script she's written for an autobiographical musical, it's clear Tina still hates Ike.
"Simply the Best" portrays Ike Turner as a gun-wielding, cocaine-sniffing, wife-beating monster whose signature line is: "That bitch will taste my wrath like it's her own saliva!"
All that, plus he's the reincarnation of the tyrannical Egyptian pharaoh Thutmose III.
