Tina Turner Marries German Record Exec Erwin Bach (Report)
Tina Turner has tied the knot with her longtime partner Erwin Bach.
Turner, 73, and Bach, 57, will celebrate their nuptials this weekend in a Buddhist ceremony at Switzerland’s Kusnacht Manor, according to Swiss media reports. The guest list for the 120-person event reportedly includes David Bowie, Oprah Winfrey, Italian musician Eros Ramazzotti and British singer and producer Sade.
Guests are being asked to wear white to Sunday’s celebration. A Swiss official confirmed to France’s AFP the wedding took place “several days ago.” She’ll wear a white gown by Giorgio Armani, according to Swiss weekly Schweiz am Sonntag.
Turner was famously married to collaborator Ike Turner from 1962-78. She began dating Bach, a German record executive, in the mid-1980s, and the couple has lived together in Zurich, Switzerland, since 1995.
Turner became a citizen of the country in April, giving up her U.S. passport.
"I'm very happy in Switzerland and I feel at home here. ... I cannot imagine a better place to live," she told German media in January when she announced her decision.
