Tina Turner has tied the knot with her longtime boyfriend in a civil ceremony in her home country of Switzerland.
The 73-year-old pop legend wed 57-year-old German-born record producer Erwin Bach. The pair have been together for over two decades.
The ceremony took place in a Zurich suburb on Wednesday. Turner has lived in Switzerland for years and formally became a Swiss citizen earlier this year.
The pair will have a formal wedding ceremony at their mansion on the banks of Lake Zurich this weekend. Over 120 guests are expected, including the likes of David Bowie, Sade and even Orpah Winfrey. Longtime friend Giorgio Armani is said to have designed the Private Dancer singer’s wedding dress.
Turner was married in the 1960′s to music partner Ike Turner. Their 14-year marriage was marred by abuse and eventually was turned into the biopic What’s Love Got To Do With It starring Angela Bassett.
