For better or worse, the idols who fans come to love on-screen don\u2019t always match the people their loved ones know. While she may be an irrevocable part of music history, Tina Turner may have more pitfalls than her new documentary let on, according to a reported inside source. HBO\u2019s new documentary Tina chronicles the singer\u2019s tumultuous life, marked by years of abuse, health scares, and rising against the odds, eventually finding lasting love. However, an alleged family source asserts that\u2019s not the whole story and the biopic glosses over the less savory sides of the artist. The Tina Turner documentary does not discuss the artist as a mother An alleged family source spoke with Fox and shared sentiments from Tina Turner\u2019s family in response to HBO\u2019s Tina documentary. \u201cThe thing you don't see in the documentary is Tina as a mom,\u201d the source asserts, a statement that\u2019s then explained with the next statement. \u201cThat's because she was never close to the kids. She never came to visit her kids. There were no holidays spent with them in their later years. No Christmases, no birthdays. She's not a close mother. Nothing's changed. She doesn't speak to anybody.\u201d RELATED: 20 Stunning Black and White Photographs of Tina Turner on Stage From Between the 1960s and 1980s Reportedly, there\u2019s often been a gap between Tina Turner and all her children, regardless of their biological father. Sadly, her son Craig Turner committed suicide in 2018. He was 59 at the time. However, the documentary did include an interview with Craig prior to his death. \u201cShe was very strict, particularly when she was home,\u201d he revealed. \u201cWe had to do our chores, we had to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at the same time. She really took to raising us personally because that was her happiness to a certain extent.\u201d What\u2019s left out, what\u2019s included https:\/\/twitter.com\/LasseZimmer\/status\/1014308479866228736 Craig\u2019s testimony provided a counterpoint to claims that Turner had been a distant mother. Or, perhaps, it filled in the picture a bit more to reveal a woman who was neither wholly an artist nor entirely the picture of a nurturing mother 24\/7. In the documentary, when her kids do come up and talk about their grievances, the biopic shows any vocalized hatred against Ike, Turner\u2019s abusive first husband. However, the insider claims the family wished more emphasis overall had been placed on Turner\u2019s family, particularly her children. \u201cRonnie and Afida just felt so sad that Ronnie wasn't in the documentary,\u201d the source claims. \u201cHe's the only son of Ike and Tina. It was produced by Erwin so that's why but really everyone wants to know what the son of Ike and Tina thinks.\u201d \u201cErwin, of course, didn't want to put Ronnie in it because they don't want the truth or the good vibes that Ronnie would share,\u201d the source went on. \u201cIt was very sad that Ronnie was not interviewed, and not shown playing with his mother. Viewers don't see any of that. Just him as a baby but nothing of him right now as a musician.\u201d The source claims the family acknowledges that the documentary did do a good job articulating the major triumphant milestones Turner faced in her journey to stardom and liberation. The documentary, thus, acts as a final goodbye as intended by Turner as she exits the limelight for good to pursue good health in peace and quiet. Did you watch HBO\u2019s Tina documentary?
