Tina Turner is saying goodbye to her fans in HBO’s new documentary Tina.

After battling health issues and personal struggles, the “What’s Love Got To Do With It” artist says she wants to go out on a high note.

The Sun got a preview of the authorized documentary that covers Turner’s life over the last 60 years, including her tough childhood, an abusive marriage to former musical partner Ike Turner, and her solo music career starting in the mid-1980s.

The “Proud Mary” artist reveals the details of growing up in poverty in Nutbush, Tennessee. She says she had to pick cotton to help her family get by.

Turner, 81, also shares she was abandoned by both her father and mother, and talked about how much pain that caused her.

“I wanted her to come for me, and I waited. She never did. And it’s alright, you know why? I’m a girl from a cotton field that pulled myself above the destruction and the mistakes,” Turner resiliently says in Tina.

She tried to mend the relationship as an adult but her mother still did not accept her.

“Mom was not kind. When I became a star, of course back then she was happy because I bought her a house. I did all kinds of things for her, she was my mother,” Turner says. “I was trying to make her comfortable because she didn’t have a husband, she was alone, but she still didn’t like me.”

Turner also details her multiple health struggles over the years, including suffering a stroke, battling cancer and dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder from the domestic abuse. She also had to undergo a kidney transplant in 2017, according to the British paper.

Tina debuts Saturday, March 27 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.
