Musician and ’60s Soul Star P.P. Arnold Claims in His New Memoir, Soul Survivor, Ike Turner Raped a Woman
A new memoir by soul singer P.P. Arnold, formerly known as Ikette with the Ike & Tina Turner Revue, will include a bombshell accusation against Ike Turner.
Ike Turner assaulted her in a room in the mid-1960s, Arnold reveals to The Telegraph in an interview about her new book Soul Survivor. A decade later, Arnold was still dealing with her feelings of betrayal and revenge toward Turner, who had now passed away in 2007.
“I’m stumped. It was a disaster. Because I couldn’t express my hatred for Ike on that level, I couldn’t express my hatred for Ike “Arnold, who is now 75, made the statement. Adding insult to injury, Arnold claimed that he was told by Tina Turner, Ike’s former wife, that she wanted to get rid of him because he was after him. In other words, “if I’d run to Tina or contacted my parents, I’d have [had] to return home”
Tina Turner Revue, Re-entering her home would mean re-entering the violent world of her spouse, according to Arnold. In an interview with the Telegraph, she said she and her husband David were compelled to get married following an unsuccessful attempt at abortion with a sterilized coat hanger. At the age of 15, she gave birth to her son, Kevin. She went on to have a daughter named Debbie when she was just 17.
“I dealt with it,” Arnold claims adds, referring to her “deep anger” over her husband’s abuse. In addition, she said that as a child, her father beat her physically. “Sadly, it was the way things were in the past. Angel of the Morning: “I believe it has a lot to do with slavery and how it damaged the black man’s mind.” “The singer commented.
In an interview with Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger, Arnold says she finally decided to leave the Ikettes. She also claimed to have become Jagger’s lover when he was still seeing Marianne Faithfull, the singer who was his girlfriend at the time.
According to her account, “Mick was in heaven, but Marianne was more fascinated with me.” “The two of us had always had terrific chemistry when it came to kissing. It wasn’t easy for me to let go of my inhibitions, but in the end it was Mick who had me swooning, not her. The atmosphere made me feel like a slave on a plantation.”
The singer also addresses her friendship with Jimi Hendrix after relocating to the UK, sleeping with Rod Stewart, finding her way in the industry, her second marriage to Jim Morris, and the birth of her third son Kojo in 1971 in her memoir.
When Debbie was 13, she was murdered in a vehicle accident, and her mother speaks out about the loss of her own daughter. “She possessed a singular quality. Since the death of my daughter, I have not had a significant relationship at all. Finding a good man is quite tough, even in the most routine of circumstances. It isn’t over until it is, you know.”
The story finishes on a positive note, however.”I know I could use one. Where I am today is what matters, “That’s what she remarked. The question is, “How can I use all of this experience to produce something truly exceptional?” A tell-all memoir is due out Thursday.
