Tina Turner: 'Cher Inspired Me To Leave Ike'

TINA TURNER has confessed CHER inspired her to leave her abusive marriage to ex-husband IKE - because her pal looked so happy as a single woman.
Tina left Ike in July 1976, a year after Cher ended her marriage to Sonny Bono.
The pair were close pals and Turner admits she was fascinated watching Cher take to being a single woman.
Speaking on an Oprah Winfrey Show special on Thursday (8May08), during which she performed onstage with Cher, Turner says, "I just remember she was so free. I admired her freedom."
But the 68-year-old diva admits being on her own was tough at first. She says, "I called it Tina's Operation Oops, because I made so many oops. But I slowly learned."
