After being married for almost 20 years, the two were legally separated in 1978. Tina had initially filed, citing “irreconcilable differences.” But in her autobiography — I, Tina: My Life Story — she opened up about Ike being an abusive partner.
In an interview with Oprah in 2005, she talked about how her son Craig had witnessed the abuse and was definitely affected by it.
“One day when Ike was fighting me, Craig knocked on the door and said, ‘Mother, are you all right?’ I thought, ‘Oh, please, don’t beat me at home.’ I didn’t want my children to hear,” she revealed to Oprah. Tina also mentioned that Craig “was a very emotional kid.”
Tina’s ex-husband died in 2007 of a cocaine overdose. She got married again to Erwin Back seven years ago, who is 16 years younger than her. They started dating in 1986, not too long after her first marriage with Ike.
