London, Aug 26: Tina Turner has revealed that her former husband Ike, who died more than five years ago, changed her name from Anna Mae Bullock so that he could always own her.
During an interview on Oprah's Next Chapter, the 73-year-old said that Ike was a musician who always wanted to be a star and he was a star locally but never internationally, the Daily Express reported.
However, despite the ever-present "ghost of Ike", Tina has gone from strength to strength in both her professional and personal life.
When the show's host Oprah Winfrey asked the singer about what keeps her going, Tina said that endurance is the secret behind her success. (ANI)
