Tina Was Insecure

Tina was one of the most popular singers in the 60s. She had released many albums and had a successful solo career.

Despite being such a great singer and winning millions of hearts, she was insecure about her voice. 

She was among the most formidable competitors for other singers in the 60s.

She was the only singer who danced during her singing performance. 

When she started singing, she felt that her voice was not good. 

It sounded more like a boy's voice than a girl's. She found her voice was deep and ugly. 

Not only that, she also felt that her look was also not good enough. 

She never felt that she was pretty, and because of that, she always hid her under makeup and wigs.

Tina Tried To Take Her Life

Tina was married twice in her life. Her first marriage was with Ike Turner, a musician with whom she shared her second son.

They were together for a long time. Unfortunately, Tina's marriage with Ike wasn't happy at all. 

In her memoir, she revealed her struggles in her marriage with Ike

He was abusive to Tina. She also claimed that Ike even broke her jaw. 

He constantly physically abused her. Finally, because of his constant abuse, Tina tried to kill herself, thinking death was the only way to escape an abusive relationship. 

She took 50 sleeping pills, but she got lucky enough to be taken to the hospital and was alive. 

When she was in the car with Ike, he tried to make her vomit by inserting a finger in her mouth. 

It was a scary moment, but after that, she never thought of killing herself.

Tina Had A Lot Of Health Issues

Tina had a history of many health issues. 

In 2013, just after her marriage to her long-term partner Erwin Bech, she had a heart stroke which made her unable to walk. 

The doctor told her that she couldn't walk because of the stroke, but she didn't believe it. 

But she found herself unable when she tried to get out of bed. Despite that, she didn't leave hope and made herself walk again. 

Three years after the stroke, she got intestinal cancer. Not only that, but both her kidneys also failed because of high BP.

However, her husband Erwin saved her life by giving his one kidney. 

Her husband was young, so she didn't want him to do that, but he didn't listen to Tina and gave it anyway. 

Her history of health issues became the cause of her death at the age of 83.

Tina Lost Both Her Children

Tina was the mother of four sons; among them, two were her biological, and two were adopted. 

Sadly, Tina lost both of her biological sons. Her first son Craig died in 2018, and the reason behind his death was suicide. 

Craig was 59 when he took his own life, and Tina couldn't get why her son took that step. 

She had always seen Craig happy with his job and his girlfriend, so his death made Tina question what her son was going through. 

It was a heartbreaking moment for Tina as a mom, and she thought that loneliness might be the reason behind Craig's suicide. 

After four years, Tina lost his second son Roonie because of cancer. Losing her children was a huge loss for her as a mom.
