Today, 28 years after the premiere of the film, the house made headlines again for the comparison made by the Dirt portal about what the property looked like back then and how it does now.

The house, which dates back to 1956, looks very different from how it did during the time that The Princess of Rock inhabited it in the company of Ike, her late ex-husband and whom she divorced in 1978.

“My ex-husband was a physically violent man. I went through some basic torture. I was living a life of death. I did not exist, but I survived. And when I got out, I walked. And I didn’t look back ”, the artist recalled in an interview she gave in 1981 to People magazine.

The residence, According to the book ‘Tina Turner: Break Every Rule’, it was bought by Ike, in 1964, for about $ 100 thousand dollars, which currently translates to about $ 860 thousand dollars.

In 1970 Ike surprised Tina with a total makeover, which he performed while she was recovering in the hospital from tuberculosis.

That was the couple’s home until 1976, the year she decided to leave, while Ike sold it, fully furnished, in May 1977, for $ 115,000.

The property, which has an area of ​​2,964 square feet, is made up of four bedrooms and five bathrooms.

It is completed by a kitchen, a breakfast room, a dining room, a living room, a main room, among other rooms.

Outside its 0.21 acres of land, it has green areas, a swimming pool with a spa area, a fireplace and a terrace.
