Tina Turner is so scarred by memories of her tempestuous marriage to IKE TURNER, she has banned any reference to him in Ben Elton's forthcoming musical about her.

The PRIVATE DANCER star gave the strict order to Elton, who also created hit rock musical WE WILL ROCK YOU (based on the music of Queen), as her former husband drove her to attempt suicide.

The drug-addicted rocker subjected her to savage beatings publicly and privately, before she finally fled the troubled union in 1976.
