Tina Turner weds longtime beau
MANILA, Philippines – After 27 years of dating, 8-time Grammy winner Tina Turner, 73, married record executive Erwin Bach, 53, in a private ceremony in Switzerland “a few days ago,” according to E! news.
A Buddhist post-wedding ceremony – the singer is a practicing Buddhist – is set on July 21 in Küsnacht, France 24 reported. 120 guests are expected.
Fellow celebrities including David Bowie, Eros Ramazzotti, Sade and Oprah Winfrey are due to celebrate with the couple.
The bride will reportedly wear a Giorgio Armani gown, but guests are requested to come in white.
Although Sunday’s water party will be intimate, the newlyweds have sent out letters to neighbors apologizing ahead for any noise from the celebration.
Turner and Bach met at a party in London in 1985. The two have been together since. They moved to Switzerland in 1994 to be closer to Bach's enterprise.
Turner’s previous marriage with singer Ike Turner was marred by domestic violence and ended after 14 years.
She retired from performing in 2009 and was granted Swiss citizenship last April.
