The value of Ike Turner’s estate is unclear. Although it was recently estimated at $200,000, no one is certain who will get what. In earlier court filings, Fort and attorney Craig Gross have claimed that Turner’s estate is worth more than that. Among the assets in the estate is $80,000 in bank accounts and his copyrights and intellectual property rights. While the exact value is unknown, it is still worth keeping an eye on.
One of the most fascinating details surrounding the estate of the late singer is the number of ex-wives seeking a piece of the deceased’s property. Besides the three ex-wives, Jeanette Bazzell Turner is also claiming a piece of the estate. She was married to Tina Turner in 1995, but filed for divorce five years later. The reason is that she never received community property and is suing because of that.
