So what we heard back in March is getting real next week: Tina Turner (73) and her longtime companion Erwin Bach (57) are finally getting married. Although Tina always stated that she would never marry again it looks like she has changed her mind.

She made a last final tour back in 2008/2009 and totally vanished once again after it.
