“What’s Love Got to Do With It,” came out in 1993. Now, Ike’s 50-year old daughter, Mia Turner, says the rape in the movie was fictionalized and never happened. Mia says she never saw Ike abuse Tina during her childhood. Mia’s mother is former Ikette Margaret Ann Thomas, who got pregnant with Mia during his marriage to Tina. Mia’s working on a documentary about Ike and Tina. About the rape, Mia said, “Obviously I wasn’t there that night…but after I saw the movie I called Tina’s sister Aillene and said: ‘What in the world?’ She then called Tina and [Aillene] confirmed to me that it never happened.” Mia’s says a lot of what Tina said is accurate but not the rape. Mia has nothing but love for Tina. “Tina was like a second mother to me, I have a lot of love and respect for her, I still do. I was like the daughter she never had, we did everything together. Tina will always have a very special place in my heart because that’s my other mother. If I saw her today, I would hug her and say, ‘I love you and I miss you.’”
