Tammi Terrell

Halle Berry isn’t the only celebrity with terrible choices in men. Back in the day, Tammi Terrell dated two famous woman beaters: David Ruffin and James Brown. David Ruffin allegedly hit her in the head with a hammer, although the incident has been denied by her family and Motown. Ruffin did hit her on the side of her face with his motorcycle helmet, which ended their relationship in 1967. She died three years later of complications from brain cancer a month before her 25th birthday.
