MediaTakeOut.com is sad to report to you that legendary R&B singer Ike Turner has passed away. We're equally sad to report that a person close to Ike CONFIRMED TO US that he died of a cocaine overdose. Ike Turner, former husband of Tina Turner, was 76 years old.
wow, I thought he kicked the drugs but i guess not. anyhoo, RIP Ike Turner
*** SERVER!!!!!! I HATE MTO!!! LOL
No one said drug overdose, he had been sick for awhile, when did drugs get involved. Get your facts straight before assuming
RIP Prayers going out for his family. I thought he kicked the habit too babycheeks. I guess not huh?
WOO HOO! I'm THIRD ***!!! BKLYN ALL DAY!!
I hope he can answer for all the wrong he's done. Hope someone up there will give him ice water cause it's hot where he's going!!
Sorry, I was trying to be first, that's all. ***, it's a shame. Did Tina do it? You never know......RIP
Had nothing to do w/drugs. MTO says that for everybody.
Guess not huh?
sorry wiggles, I'M THIRD!
10th ...and MTO be on some other ish
Wow this is so sad. R.I.P. Ike. Every time you turn around somebody dies. STAY OFF DRUGS PEOPLE!!!!
RIP big dog
WOW... HE WAS OLD THOUGH SO DRUGS MAY NOT HAVE BEEN A FACTOR.... OH WELL I GUESS HE'S ROLLIN ON A RIVER NOW.
I just joined MTO, so maybe i'm a lil naive, but I think they be lyin about stuff. I don't think it was drugs. Maybe it was natural causes, you know that does happen. It happened to *** c and he was mad young. It could be any of us.
Good Riddance!! He did it himself with drugs. I feel no sympathy. Do you care Anna Mae??
Maybe you all have forgotten how bad of a junkie and a wife beater he was. even if he was clear of drugs you can bet your *** that the damage was already done! duh!
DESERVED IT after all that BEATING he use to give Tina. If it was a drug overdose then I DONT FEEL SORRY FOR HIM. I hope God forgived him
MTO It wasn't drugs he's been sick for a min now. Get your facts straight. You always assuming drugs when somebody dies. R.I.P. Ike Turner
RIP Ike u'll be truly Remembered " Eat the Cake Tina"
<Font size=large> IKEEEEEEEE...
I think we're going to work out fine...
Well! may god forgive his soul....rip
IKE DIDN'T DIE BECAUSE HE KICKED TINA'S @SS, HE DIED BECAUSE HE WAS A DOPE FIEND WHO PUT TOO MUCH CRACK IN HIS SYSTEM. THAT'S A HARD WAY TO GO THOUGH. I FEEL SORRY FOR HIM, SO YEAH, KARMA IS A B!ZNITCH!
-HONESTY TWO FOUR
aw man....ikes' dead, now who will spouse abusers look up to now?lol,oh well,RIP
I don't feel sorry for Ike azz yes he was a great musician and entertainer and discover Tina Turner.
His azz was way to *** old to be smoking crack should of had his azz in somebody church that old.
Ike use to beat the *** out of Tina he was a true example of what a man beater was all about! When Tina divorce Ike she walked away with nothing but her name and became famous!
Ike,look how you've come to the end after you did Tina dirty.
MTO need to be ashamed of themselves for this sh*t
The man had an illness from years of using drugs and had been sick for a long time.
They said on the radio last week that he was in the hospital and they that his illness was so bad they didnt expect him to live. I heard it on the radio last week.
And how the hell can YOU all confirm anything when the coroners havent even confirmed anything to the media yet and won't be able to for weeks?
I read someone else that his family has confirmed that he died in his sleep now here mediatakeout is assuming that the man died of a cocaine overdose?! Get your facts straight before you start saying in was drugs mediatakeout...show some respect his old A$$ probably hadn't did that ish in years R.I.P IKE
RIP Mr. Turner.
From What's Love Got to do with it,
"If you die, I'll kill you."
Whoa, honestly, I didn't even hear anything about this. Have to check the news to see...
All I can say is that I hope he asked God for forgiveness before he passed away.
I think that's how it goes?
RIP Ike, I'll pray for your soul.
@kimkelmor, you got me creaming over here! Too, too funny.
I meant "screaming"
Don't really care to much. He gave Tina hell when they were together.
i wasnt aware that this was a race and that their are prizes at the end of the race! 1st 2nd third... hell even 10th!!(hence sarcasm) even thogh he was ABUSIVE *** CRUEL.. how lame.. especially with news like this.. how about bein 1st 2nd hell even 10th for voting next november!! ....... get motivated about that! oh yeah 1st!
R.I.P IKE TURNER, I HEARD HE WAS SICK FOR A WHILE MTO, PLZ CONFIRM NEWS FIRST. NOW HE HAS TO ANS FOR WHAT HE DID TO TINA
Didnt he *** his first wife in the beginning of the
movie? he was an old evil sob....raping tina and all...god help his soul because he needs it...
Anna May! Anna Mae ***!!! I'ma kill you if you die!! Lawerence Fishborn played the hell out of that character!! RIP IKE
Actually, in the movie, his first wife *** herself.
Keep on burnin, Ike.
Couldn't remember! but anyways he still had something to do with it some how...old evil ***...lol
I'm not gone elaborate on what caused somebody's death because I will never know what really happen. To believe he died of a cocaine overdose from a gossip site would be totally insubmissive. I will say this though, my heart goes out to his family and especially my girl T.T (a.***.a TINA TURNER).
Whaats CRACK got to do, go to do with it!!!
Whaats CRACK but the sickening emooootioonn!!!
MTO, the cause of his death is still under investigation. Yall dont know the reason he died yet! ***!!!
Rest in Peace Ike....
I really hope that's not true.
A MAN DIED AND some of YALL STILL WORRIED ABOUT WHO POSTED 1st AND 2Nd..10th....NOT REST IN PEACE OR ANY OTHER CONDOLENSES BUT FIRST!!!...GIMMIE A BREAK WITH THAT CORNY ***....
MTO ya'll *** ya'll don't know if it was from crack or not i heard he died in his sleep not from some overdose he's been having health issues for a minute so who can say that it's from that Lindsay Lohan lol get ya'll facts straight MTO *** lol
Ike Turner: Hey, Anna Mae, where you goin'. I need to get some sleep!
Tina Turner: Go straight to hell, Ike!
mto stay with the nonsense!! "details are still coming in but we can confirm it was a drug overdose.." wtf? how can u confirm something if it is a developing story? ur sooo dumb!!!! but neways R.I.P.
Even tho he whooped Tina's ***
R.I.P u will b miss
CASHVILLE'S FINEST M*O*N
Per the Associated Press...There was no immediate word on the cause of death, which was first reported by celebrity Web site TMZ.com
yes MTO you can keep wishin' LOL
how many times is this ***!gga going to die?!?
MTO kills me with what they can "CONFIRM". Ike was old and ill. What makes you think that he died from a crack overdose? All crackheads don't die from the drug itself but from the side effects and health problems that they can cause. Respect Ike, ***.
Biggie was *** several times but was fat so did he die from overeating?
Tupac was *** several times so did he die from being a thug, smoking weed and drinking Alize?
*** the fu@*** up Fred and your dumb *** staff at MTO. Ignorant mofo's.
"Next time you want some time off, give a *** some notice"
First, give this man the respect he deserves. He is arguably one of the originators of rock and roll and a true legend. Hell he was a legend before he ever pulled Anna Mae out of Nutbush, TN.
Second, i'm not buying the drug angle until I see a real media report....
An autopsy results can take up to 2-3 months before they know exactly what he died from. Man hasn't been dead 24 minutes before MTO can "confirm" what he died from.
Fred...If you f*$*** up a step ***, you'll be frying fish tomorrow
Eat the cake Anna Mae!!
My condolences go out to his family R.I.P. IKE.... i know alot of people on here talking about how he used to beat tina, but that's between him and god we are in no position to judge that man for anything he has did in his life time...
MTO what the hell is wrong with you, you as usual you didn't confirm s hit, dude has been sick a long *** time. According to yall almost everyone dies from a drug overdose!!
On a side note, when someone dies can you *** king *** not say first, second and so on, yall look like a bunch of disrespectful FOOLS! Grow the f uck UP!!!!!!!!!!
MTO ARE SUCH LIARS! Such disrespect. The man is dead, at least have some sympathy to just report the truth. He turned his life around before he died and 4 you to make a buck, you try to ruin it with one headliner! How old are you punks @ MTO? 15?
Congrats on his grammy last year, but he will always be remembered but not for any of his music pass Proud Mary but for his *** hand LMAO!!! All I can say is even through all of the abuse, Tina can still get it. But Again RIP Ike
@ wiggles... how can u judge where that man is going maybe that's ur fate.
@ tense81 ...I totally agree w/ you.
None of you in here are perfect to even do a man like that regardless of what he's done. When any of u are perfect like Jesus, then u can talk that smack, until then pray for ur own soul. I know it's u youngins that's making these comments. Y'all really need to grow up. Y'all have no idea what respect is, respect the dead.period.
How do u know he died of an overdose.. there is not even an autopsy yet?
Doesn't uprise me, he kicked Tina's ***.
MTO you need to get your *** facts straight before you post *** like this. no one knows what caused his death yet. All they know is that he died in his sleep. All you care about is gettin some *** readers for your 50% fake *** "news" site. Have some *** respect.
76 is pretty young. he was infamous for abusing the sweetest the most beautiful black woman with famous legs insured on the london stock exchange. tina ..an example to us all...she left him...and now that he's dead we can all exhale...and say praise the lord he's dead..a lot of demons died with him.
ike partied like a rock star 4 sure. the 2 for 5 rocks.
my sympathies go out to his family and others who are abused but remain silent
I was wondering how long MTO would come and say that IKE died of an overdose. WELL, WELL, WELL. I just hope that he did not die like that.
yea, Tina has the best legs ever.
OOOH SHI/T...I GUESS IT IS TRUE GOD DONT LIKE UGLY...AND HE IS UGLY AS HELL AND IM SUPRISED GOD DIDNT TAKE HIM AWAY SOONER...ALL THAT SHI/T HE DID TO TINA...IM SORRY BUT I WILL NOT MOURN HIS DEATH
How can ya'll confirm this MTO!? Ain't nobody else(yahoo,tmz) saying the man died from overdose. And why isn't this the headline news??Keshia Cole and her getto azz family *** have been headlining!!! MTo get ya'll selves together here.
despite what mto says, if anyone thinks u can use crack for that long and it not be a factor in your death, you're wrong.
If this is true RIP Ike!
My deepest condolences to his family. That being said I really hope that at 76 years old he was doing illegal drug.
Imagine your grandparents doing crack....
Eat the cake Anna Mae!
I SAID!!!!! EAT THE CAKE ANNA MAE!! LMAO!
REST IN PEACE IKE!
Rest in peace soul brotha!! I learned the fine art of smackin *** from you man (wipes tear fromeye)..youwas like my dad man..In your honor I wil smack the taste out of my *** mouth then *** her up...See ya at the *** palace in the sky..
That's too bad! There are 6 millions ways to die...choose one! Not crack! Not for me!
Even if he didn't die right away from crack-cocaine, look how long he was messing with it! You system can only take so much. Like Rick James said.."Cocaine is a hell of drug!"
Im gonna stop listening to MTO 8 out 10 times yall be lying!!!
okay MTO, I live down here where he died, and there is NOTHING about a drug overdose,
again, you may have to put up or *** up......
ike gone but dem teefs gon be here foreva.
MTO why are you all so shameless. No other reputatble media said he died of a cocaine overdose, but here you go again making up stories just to get ppl to visit your website. Proper journalism dictate that you get your facts correctly before you go putting your foot in your mouths as usual.
RIP Ike Turner, this is a sad moment no time to be judging anybody. Worry about your life instead, only God can judge us!
Ike Turner was truly a legend in his own right and I know deep down inside he was consumed with anger. I feelthat he was relieved by Ms.Tina Turners out pouring of abuse to the public.
I liked him very much and he will be missed.
My his old evil soul rest in peace!
Ike Turner died of a cocaine overdose? That's just another wife-beater gone on to his just reward. May someone just as kind-hearted as he was, meet him with open arms.
And yes...all that beating stuff was totally true. That famous scene in the movie "What's Love Got to Do With It" where she fought back and ran from the limo actually happened in Dallas and was all over the local news when I lived there. The hotel manager that gave her the free hotel room was interviewed on local tv and radio for weeks.
So for those of you that think it was just a movie...it was real life. The *** actually did beat her that one time for sure and once is one time too many.
WE LOVE YOU IKE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mediatakeout is cgoing to get sued out the *** for reporting all of this false ***. How would they know it was a drug overdose? As of know, the only news is he died in his sleep.
Details are still coming in, BUT, you can confirm he OD'd?
Last MTO reported, he was just gravely ill. I heard or read nothing about drugs being involved.
Just because he was known for drugs in the past, doesn't mean he was doing them up til he died.
Regardless of how he died, he was still someones father, grandfather, brother, son...etc. R.I.P. Ike. I hope you were right with your GOD!!
What a pity. Just last month, I saw him in good health at the celeb club millionairecupid.com. He's gone so fast. Many of his fans are talking about him there.
YOU BLOOGERS ARE HILARIOUS IKE TURNER DIED AND ALL YA CAN DO IS SAY ''' ANNIE MAE EAT THE CAKE'' OR ''ILL KILL YOU''
LMFAO, NO RESPECT FOR THE MAN'S DEATH OR MUSIC.
*** IS HILARIOUS, ANYBODY KNOW ANYMORE QUOTES FROM THE MOVIE LOL...

He was just on the radio the other day talking about new music he was working on.
Was it karma? You know ol Tina Turner a Buddhist...Nom yo ho ren guey cue!!!
MTO - I knew you guys were a bunch of knockoff journalists and wannabe PR agents, but this takes the cake! First of all, check your facts before you start spreading LIBEL!!!! Secondly, the man died from emphysema, not crack. Not only is your reporting style disrespectful, but also distasteful and DISTORTED. Quit trying to be tmz.com, or perez hilton!
thats what hapens when you do stupid stuff like that i dont even know this men. so i dont care anyways.he should have know dumb stuff like that will get you killed. no hurt feelin g for u or yo family.
Goin to hell... RIP
Rolling, rolling, he rolling down the river . . .
I hope he had his life together
LADYMAXX & Mrs. Misteress LMAO LMFAO
May he rest in peace. Lord bless his soul and forgive him of his sins
Amy Crackhouse.. this is ur future
He did not die of a drug overdose he died of natural causes in his sleep. The sad part about life is a person can do one bad thing and several good things and only that obe bad thing will be remembered. MTO said the same thing about *** C. Don't specualte if you don't have facts then just do like everyone else and just report he passed away. Just that simple try it it for chees sakes.
I agree with Genesis29. People save your judgment for people who ask you for your opinions!
R.I.P. IKE!!!! *IN MY IKE TURNER VOICE* "***.....IF YOU DIE....I'LL KILL YA!! *** YOU HEAR ME? I'LL KILL YA!!!" LMBAO!!!! BUT SERIOUSLY REST IN PEACE!!!!!
R.I.P. IKE God will forgive you for all that you have done if you repent, repent, repent. MTO the man died in his sleep.
RIP Ike Turner
"Sing tha song Anna Mae"
It has been so long ago since Tina and Ike were a couple and the things he did to her happened a long time ago from my understanding and yes,Tina did forgive him and moved the hell own.I am not going to pass judgement on this man while he is RIP.May God be with him and bless his family to get pass this tragedy.
I beleive that, he is old school and alot of old heads never give up the use of coke. God bless may he finally rest in peace.
Yeah He Used To beat The Hell Outta Tina, But She Wised Up And Left.. I Dont Even Think Tina Is Happy He's Dead.. Thats Just Not Something Anyone Should Wish On Their Worst Enemy..
I Wonder If Tina Will Attend The Funeral...
I used to see him in the barbershop that my husband went to when we lived in San Diego County- he always looked mad as hell, ALWAYS! I hope he's at peace now...
Yo maybe yall didn't see What's Love Got to Do With It, by I did. This was an evil dude. Not only did he beat the snot out of Tina when he wanted to, but he shamed her in front of people, slept around on her, fathered children while he was married to her. He even raped her. Yall can save all those RIP's for someone that didn't disturb their wife's peace while he was alive. Overdose or no overdose, stick a fork in dude
he's done (wife beater)
So much of anger.wow
To all of y'all saying that we *** pass judgment on Ike, I agree. But come on now. A lot of us still believe in common decency, and spousal abuse is not just frowned upon, it's downright condemned. I don't think these people are judging him, they just remember what he was... he hurt so many people in his lifetime, mainly Tina. What's Love Got To Do With It broke a lot of people's hearts when they saw it, and those events that were reenacted in the movie wasn't even the half of it, I'm sure. I know it seems like people are being cruel because they're not holding in their hatred for Ike just because he passed away, but don't judge those people too harshly. The fact is, even though they're sorry he died, nobody really has any sympathy for Ike. But, despite all that, he has to answer to God, so just let it be.
Tina, probably wished he'd done it 45 years ago!
MTO WHY POST INFORMATION AND YOU DONT KNOW THE TRUE FACTS? AGAIN Y'ALL ARE FULL OF DOO-DOO AND THAT IS PUTTING IT NICELY
RIP IKE TURNER "EAT THE CAKE ANNA MAE"
we all know Ike was sniffin... but MTo be lying... for all we know he coulda had a heart attack, he was old!
Kenyatta27 how lame are you?
Anyway, RIP IKE wit your angry ***!!
MTO IS LYING....the cause of death has not been determined yet, and Tina Turner has no comment....she hasn't talked to Ike in 35yrs....before MTO has something different to say tomorrow...
Some of you can be so cold its a wonder why your relationships dont last because you're a bunch of heartless ass**** what if that was you father or grandfather what would you say if someone said that about them, and half the time MTO has the wrong info.
R.I.P. IKE!!!! HE WAS A COOL DUDE. I THINK FOR OLD TIMES SAKE, ALL THE FELLOWS SHOULD WALK UP TO A WOMAN AND INTRODUCE THEM TO IKE TURNER'S GREATEST "HITS"!!!!
I thought he was gonna leave that narcotic alone ....
OK, so what's new in BLACK MEN news...hahaha
Well, some addicts rock bottom is death. When will people begin to realize that some people just can't beat their addiction?
i heard he died in his sleep. MTO, I can't trust you to report the real story. Really considering not visiting the site anymore, but I'm a little addicted to celebrity gossip!
AWW THATS SO SAD:( REST IN PEACE IKEY! I SAW "WHATS LOVE..., BUT HEY, IT TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY! THE MAN WAS STILL A MUSIC GENIUS. AND MTO ON SOME B.S, HE WAS SICK WITH EMPHISEMA BEFORE HE PASSED. ...IF YA DIE, *** ILL KILL YA, HEAR ME?
MTO, YOU ARE A BUNCH OF VIPERS!! THE MAN DIED OF A HEART ATTACK IN HIS SLEEP!! I HOPE SOMEONE SUES YOUR *** OFF!!
R.I.P. Ike Turner He Did What He Did Cuz He Had Da Money 2 I Can't Hate Him 4 Dat
Thanks MTO, but I'll wait for the medical examiner's report.
