Trigger warning: The story contains details of child abuse and domestic violence that might be distressing to some readers.

Just because someone is a celebrity, they don't necessarily have a charmed life. Many people survive through abusive childhoods only to be trapped in relationships with abusive partners. Tina Turner, 81, has battled many difficulties in life, including ill-health and an abusive relationship that lasted for years. That's not all, even her relationship with her mother was a frayed one.

What Turner suffered is likely the result of a cycle of abuse. "It wasn’t a good life. The good did not balance the bad. 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," she said in a new documentary Tina, according to Sun UK.
