Why Ike Turner’s Daughter, Mia, Called Out Tina Turner
‘My Dad Did Not Rape Tina Turner’…

Daughter Claims Tina Tricked Ike Into Signing Off On Violent Biopic..
Mia Turner: “A high percentage of Tina’s account has been accurate. When she signed off on the movie it was the way she wanted it, but it was edited heavily afterwards. … We find out later it was tweaked. It was made Hollywood, so there’s quite a few scenes, primarily the rape scene. It didn’t happen. In Hollywood, sex sells, whether it’s good, bad or indifferent.”
“When the movie came out, it took me 10 times to get through it. I couldn’t do it. I asked my dad, ‘How could you allow mom [Tina] to portray you like this?’ He said, ‘I signed off, trusting that Anna Mae would portray me correctly, not lying or tweaking anything. The real story. I got paid $50,000 that I wouldn’t say anything afterwards.'”
