Tina Turner's farewell to fans: Star, 81, takes a final bow with HBO documentary that reveals her ongoing PTSD battle after marriage to Ike and how 'proud' she is of her 60 years as a music icon
In the documentary, she explains the reasons why she decided to come forward in the 1980s about her years of physical, emotional and sexual abuse by Ike
Turner admitted that even today, she still has flashbacks of being beaten
'That scene comes back, you're dreaming, the real picture's there... it's like a curse,' she said
Her German husband Erwin Bach compared her to a shellshocked 'soldier coming back from the war'
Tina has also battled numerous health issues, including a stroke in 2013 and being diagnosed with intestinal cancer in 2016.
The documentary also spotlights the obstacles Turner had to surmount to become a stadium-filling sex symbol as a Black middle-aged woman
Tina by Oscar-winning directors Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin premiered earlier this month at the Berlin film festival
It traced Turner's six-decade career as an unlikely triumph over abuse and discrimination.
Paired with the musical about her, the film is billed as the 81-year-old Turner's farewell to her legions of fans.
