US soul musician Ike Turner dies
Turner denied claims of abuse by his former wife
US soul legend Ike Turner, the former husband of Tina Turner, has died at the age of 76.
He died at his home near San Diego, California. There was no immediate word on the cause of death.
He rose to fame in the 1960s, and is best remembered for his musical partnership and stormy marriage with Tina Turner.
She said he abused her, but he somewhat rehabilitated his image in his later years, winning a Grammy in 2007.
"Ike Turner passed away this morning. He was at his home," said Scott Hanover, an official at the performer's management company.
