Tina Turner and beau to tie the knot after 27 years
If anyone knows a thing or two about bad marriages it’s R&B legend Tina Turner. That’s why the 73-year-old “Proud Mary” singer waited 2 decades to tie the knot again. Turner and Erwin Bach, her boyfriend of 27 years, plan to wed this Sunday in a civil ceremony in Switzerland, People.com reports.
Turner and Bach have lived together in Zurich, Switzerland, for more than 15 years. The couple plan to have a Buddhist celebration at their home near Lake Zurich on Sunday, according to People.com. Turner recently applied for Swiss citizenship after renouncing her American citizenship.
Turner’s last marriage to musician Ike Turner ended in divorce in 1976, after years of abuse. Ike died in 2008 of a cocaine overdose.
