Tina Turner, dubbed the “Queen of Rock and Roll,” is a legendary vocalist who rose to prominence in the 1950s. Her powerful vocals were a big part of her rise to prominence. At the same time, she met Ike Turner, a highly brilliant musician. Their energy immediately matched, and the pair became inseparable in no time.
Their connection grew more personal over time, and they married in Mexico a few years after their first meeting in 1962.
It was a love marriage between two individuals who were madly in love with each other, and everyone felt they were a perfect couple who could be separated by nothing. Tina said in her book “My Love Story,” published just a few years after their marriage, that marrying Ike was one of the worst decisions she’d ever made and that their relationship was toxic.
The marriage was physically and verbally violent, she claimed in her memoir. She spoke about Ike’s temperament, telling her followers that he was a tyrant who used to criticize and even beat her over little concerns.
Tina finally ended her tumultuous marriage with Ike in 1976, informing fans that she had had enough of his abuse and could no longer bear it. In 1978, she officially divorced Ike.
Tina chose to remain single and focus on her work after this traumatic life experience until she met Erwin Bach. Tina first met Erwin when he was assigned to pick her up from the airport by his company. She was scheduled to play in Germany when she met her now-husband, a 30-year-old EMI music executive.
It was an instant draw, according to the singer. Despite her apprehensions about starting a new relationship, she gave it a shot. They were almost 27 years together. Yes, it took them that long to make up their minds to marry each other, and they were married in Switzerland in the end.
Tina was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2016, and physicians advised her to undergo dialysis or a transplant.
“Only a transplant would give me a chance to live a life that is close to normal.” “However, the prospects of finding a kidney donor were slim,” she said in My Love Story.
That’s when Erwin, her true love, intervened. Erwin told her that he didn’t want another lady or a new life; all he wanted was her. As a result, he will go to any length to save her life. As a result, Erwin donated one of his kidneys to save her life. Fortunately, the transplant went well.
Erwin has always been there for Tina through her highs and lows. Her son’s death, the premiere of her Broadway show, and her HBO documentary as a final farewell to her American followers as she exited the public spotlight are among them. Tina Turner and Erwin Bach are living proof that true, honest, and genuine love exists.
