Tina Turner is set to release a new autobiography in 2018 that will focus on her life after Ike Turner and celebrating 60 years in the music industry.
According to Entertainment Weekly:
Topics covered will include everything from “finding love” to surviving a “life-threatening illness” she had not previously disclosed. Simon & Schuster audio is co-releasing, set for an October 2018 publication date.
My Love Story is being described as a follow-up to Turner’s I, Tina, which was eventually adapted into the celebrated biopic What’s Love Got to Do With It starring Angela Bassett. In the book, she famously revealed a history of severe, at times deadly domestic abuse against her by Ike Turner, her ex-husband, from whom she divorced in 1978. The book was a worldwide best-seller.
