Tina Turner weds longtime partner in Switzerland

Music legend Tina Turner tied the knot with longtime German partner Erwin Bach in Switzerland.

Reports of the wedding have come from global news agency AFP, as well as Reuters, which received confirmation of the nuptials from Swiss municipal official Hannes Fress.

Turner, 73, and record executive Bach, 57, held the civil ceremony at their home by Lake Zurich in Kusnacht, in northern Switzerland “a few days ago,” Fress said.

The Swiss media has also been reporting details of the newlyweds’ upcoming celebration of their union, though confirmation remains sketchy. Reported details include that the couple will hold a star-studded Buddhist ceremony on Sunday with 120 invited guests — including David Bowie, Sade and Oprah Winfrey — all of whom have been requested to wear white.

Turner, who became a Swiss citizen in April, will allegedly wear a Giorgio Armani gown.

Turner, born Anna Mae Bullock in Tennessee, earned her fame beginning in the early 1960s with hits like “Nutbush City Limits” and “Proud Mary.” She continued well into the 1980s and 1990s as a hitmaking solo artist with tunes like “Private Dancer” and “We Don’t Need Another Hero.” She moved to Switzerland in 1995 when Bach was transferred to the country.
