    Not a lot of info on his death. Kind of sad though.. I don't like the fact that he was abusive.. Hopefully he changed his attitude before he died...


    This post is my opinion only, and is subject to making me look totally confused

    You know, I didn't realize he was that old. I was shocked when I read that.

    Heck yeah and Tina ain't no spring chicken. Two awesome talents. It's just sad he used to beat her with a shoe. Respectfully, I am sorry he passed.

    I know they aren't, either of them, young... but it just didn't really click with me just how old he was! Weird.

    Kind of sad to hear. Yes, I knew he was older than Tina. I believe she's about mid 60's herself. She still looks good though!!

    I had heard that he really had not given up his hard partying ways.

    I saw him about 4 yrs. ago while in CA. I happened to be on the Hollywood Walk of Fame when John Singleton (a director) was getting his star and Ike was in attendance. I think I have a pic that I haven't even developed yet. LOL

    Cause of death was a cocaine overdose, with health conditions as contributing factors:

    Such a sad end for this man with so much talent. He just never seemed to be able to keep away from drugs too long of a time.
