Tina Turner and her husband, Erwin Bach, continued to expand their real estate portfolios until two years before the legendary singer died.
The couple, who got married in July 2013, announced in January 2022 that they paid $76 million for a large beachfront land in Zurich, Switzerland.
At the time, Bach told the local Handelszeitung newspaper that he and Turner had decided to buy more properties in the European country after gaining Swiss citizenship. (Non-residents are not allowed to own land in Switzerland.)
“[We] “Feel very comfortable in Switzerland,” said Bach, who was born in Germany.
In fact, they planned to use the house as a “new weekend getaway in the neighborhood.”
The impressive property features 10 different structures spread across five acres of land. It also has its own private pond, stream, swimming pool and boat deck.
Besides the big purchase, the couple owns another property in Küsnacht, where Turner died Wednesday at age 83.
A representative confirmed that the “Proud Mary” singer died after a long battle with an unknown illness.
“It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tina Turner,” the statement said on her Instagram account.
Here’s what you need to know about the legendary singer Tina Turner…
“Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll” died Wednesday at the age of 83, after a prolific career spanning decades.
Tina – who was adopted Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame As a solo artist in 2021 – he has sold over 100 million records worldwide during his career, with songs including the hit song “The Best” and his solo comeback single “What’s Love Got to Do With It”.
It recorded the first and only #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the song that started the resurgence of her career in the 1980s.
Tina was 44 at the time, making her the oldest solo female artist to top the Hot 100 chart.
The singer and actress has won a total of 12 Grammy Awards, including eight competitive awards, three Grammy Hall of Fame awards, and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
With his music and unlimited passion for life, he has captivated millions of fans around the world and inspired the stars of tomorrow.
“Today we say goodbye to a dear friend who left us his greatest work: his music. All our sincere sympathy goes to his family. Tina, we will miss you terribly.”
The Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll had lived abroad for years before her death after starting her relationship with Bach in 1986. She even went so far as to renounce her US citizenship in 2013.
Turner chose to live abroad because he felt his music was more widely accepted there, along with his crush on his former music executive.
“I left America because my success was in another country and my boyfriend was in another country,” he told the late Larry King in 1997.
“Actually, Europe supported my music a lot.”
Still, Turner remained out of the limelight as she aged, and officially retired from the stage in 2009 after completing her 50th anniversary tour, one of the highest-grossing marches of all time.
