Tina Turner, well known as the Queen of Rock and Roll, was a popular singer who rose to fame in the 1950s. She was a very young and energetic singer. She once met singer Ike Turner at a nightclub, and they got along well.

Very soon, they started performing together and eventually fell in love with each other. Although Ike was five years younger than Tina, that didn’t come in the way of their relationship.

Within a few years, the pair got married in a beautiful ceremony in Mexico. While their fans were rooting for the power couple, Tina surprised her fans when she separated from Ike.

She wrote about it in her book ‘My Love Story’ where she said that she was subject to physical and verbal ab-se at the hands of Ike whenever she tried to confront him about anything. She tried her best to make it work but after a decade she knew she had to leave the marriage. Two years after their separation, the pair officially got divorced.

After this, Tina almost gave up on finding love until she met Erwin Bach, a music executive. She first met him when he was assigned to pick her up from the airport before one of her concerts in Germany. Tina was instantly smitten by Bach but he barely spoke anything.

She said that she could have dismissed the thoughts of Bach from her mind but she listened to her heart and was determined on getting to know him.

She asked him if he could meet her sometime later, and he agreed and soon they began dating.

Three years after dating, Bach decided to pop the question to Tina on her 50th birthday. Although he wanted her to say a ‘yes,’ Tina said she didn’t have an answer but Bach never gave up on her. He stood by her, and nearly thirty years later, Tina finally said ‘Yes.’

In 2013, they got married at their swiss estate in the presence of their families and close friends. Tina wore a Giorgio Amani dress which was crested with Swarovski crystals.

Their wedding venue in the Zurich suburb of Kuesnacht, Switzerland, has been their home for years. A few years after the failed proposal, Tina moved to Switzerland, and ever since, they’ve been living in together.

Tina, who retired from performing a few years back, said that she enjoys the peace and privacy she gets in Switzerland and called it her home. She said that she was more famous in Europe than in the US, and on gaining citizenship in Switzerland, Tina relinquished her American citizenship.

Throughout their marriage, Bach had always been very supportive. He always made sure that he protected his woman.

Recently, Tina was diagnosed with kid-ney can-er and said that a transplant would have only given her a ‘near-normal’ life, and she couldn’t find any donors.

That’s when Bach stepped in and agreed to donate one of his kidneys to Tina. In her memoir, Tina wrote that Bach offered to give her one of his kidneys because he didn’t want another woman in his life.
