Tina Turner and her longtime boyfriend Erwin Bach are officially married. The 73-year-old singer reportedly legally wed her German-born record producer beau at a registry office in a suburb of Zurich, Reuters reports.
Meanwhile The New York Post says Turner and Bach will have a wedding ceremony at their home on Lake Zurich on July 21. “I am happier than I could ever dream of,” Turner is quoted as saying.
This is Turner’s second marriage. In 1962, Turner married Ike Turner, though they later divorced after an abusive relationship. She met Bach in 1985, and they began dating in 1986. The couple has remained together ever since, and now have finally legally married after hedging the subject for decades.
It seems as though Turner and Bach will remain living in Switzerland. On Jan. 25 she applied for Swiss citizenship and received it on April 22. The couple has lived in Switzerland for 18 years.
