    Tina is blaming Ike for her son’s death that is rotten. She stayed with Ike for 20 years and had plenty of time to get out of that relationship. She hasn’t made a statement about her son’s death but had pegged him as an emotional kid in an interview on Oprah. That is dirty. She should blame herself for exploiting her family in these dreadful books, films and musicals. Now she plans to write an ode to her her deceased son in this miserable London musical. Who sings and dances to domestic abuse? Stupid.
    RIP Craig and Ike.
