Tina Turner Is Probably Engaged, Even If Her Rep Won’t Talk About It
Legendary singer Tina Turner is rumored to be engaged to her producer and longtime partner, Erwin Bach. And presumably, love has everything to do with it.
Based on information from German-language Swiss magazine Blick, 73-year-old Turner is betrothed to 56-year-old Bach and the nuptials will take place in Lake Zurich, Switzerland.
When asked about the happy news, Turner’s representative replied only with a rep’s favorite words: “No comment.” Which is basically the entertainment industry equivalent of pleading the fifth.
Provided the rumors are true, this will be Turner’s second marriage. Her first one — an infamous 16-year union to domestic abuse poster boy Ike Turner — ended in 1978. (And if you don’t know anything about the history there, you obviously haven’t seen ‘What’s Love Got to Do With It’ and you need to fix that.)
As for Erwin and Tina, they met in 1985 and have been living together in Switzerland for the past 15 years. She even renounced her US citizenship earlier this year, saying, “I’m very happy in Switzerland and I feel at home here … I cannot imagine a better place to live.”
