Two years before her death she also revealed in the ‘Tina’ feature-length documentary she had been dealing with a string of physical and mental health ailments for decades.

She said she had been diagnosed with a form of post-traumatic stress disorder from the domestic abuse she suffered throughout her marriage with her first husband and music partner, Ike Turner, who died in 2007 aged 76.

Tina added: “I had an abusive life, there’s no other way to tell the story. It’s a reality. It’s a truth. That’s what you’ve got, so you have to accept it.”

The singer – who had a stroke in 2013 was beaten by Ike and subjected her to sex she said felt more like rape – also said she once tried to escape from Ike with a sleeping pill overdose in 1968.

Her stroke came in 2013, three months after her second marriage to Erwin Bach, 67, and it was followed by a battle with intestinal cancer and kidney failure in 2017, from which she was saved with a kidney donation from Erwin.
