She said:

”What can I say? It was awful. I despised Ike on that level, but I didn’t know how to express myself.”

She continued:

“I was told Tina wanted to get rid of me because Ike was after me,”

“If I had run to Tina or called my parents, it would have meant I would have [had] to come home.”

Arnold suffered in the abusive hands of her father and husband

Arnold said that returning home would mean returning to her controlling and abusive husband.

In the memoir, she talks about how violent her husband was toward her. She was forced to marry him after an attempted abortion with a sterilized coat hanger was unsuccessful.

The singer said that she was very angry with her husband’s behavior but she dealt with it.

She also mentioned that her father would beat her while she was growing up.

The Angel of the Morning star revealed:

“Sadly it was the way it was back then. I think it’s a lot to do with slavery and how that affected the black man’s psyche.”

Arnold eventually left Ikettes after Mick Jagger from Rolling Stones convinced her to move on. She was then sexually involved with him and his girlfriend Marianne Faithfull. She even aborted Jagger’s child.

She also discussed having a relationship with Jimi Hendrix and Rod Stewart and how she never had a serious relationship after her 13-year-old daughter died in a car accident.

No matter the tragedy, she ended it with a positive note and said:

“Well I could do with one. What’s important is where I am right now,” 

“How can I take all of these years of experience and just do something really great?”
