Little Richard and Ike Turner at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio on April 2, 1998. 

Little Richard who was inducted into the Rock Hall in 1986, and Ike Turner in 1991, were longtime friends. Little Richard was used Ike’s piano intro on “Rocket 88″ for his song “Good Golly, Miss Molly.” Ike also said he had Little Richard in mind when he wrote songs for Tina Turner to sing. Little Richard wrote the introduction for Ike’s autobiography Takin’ Back My Name (1999) and

also spoke at his funeral in 2007. 

Little Richard: “When they first came to Los Angeles, I used to go over every day and Ike would be there with Tina and all of them. I remember when Tina couldn’t sing like she can today. Ike came and asked me to teach her. He asked me, ‘How would you sing this song?’ And when I sang, he would tell Tina, ‘Now that’s what I want you to do.’ But when she talks today she never mentions my name.”

LL Cool J and Kidada Jones 

LL Cool J and Kidada Jones dated from 1992 to 1994. In his book I Make My Own Rules, LL said he cared about

Kidada

and respected her but he broke up with her because of her spirituality beliefs. 

“She would go to an ashram, consult a guru, and pray to statues… Before my album 14 Shots to the Dome dropped, Kidada told me she threw some kind of stick into the eternal fire for my album. I was like ‘Yo why did you do that? I didn’t ask you to do that!’ That joint flopped crazily. ‘Oh, well, I’m sorry I cared!’ she said. I had hurt her feelings, but she had hurt me too. I know she meant well, but I just couldn’t get with that. She took me to her guru once and I remember kneeling before this strange young woman who was touching feathers.”
