Rumor has it that after her divorce from Ike Turner, Tina claimed she would never marry again. But a good love and a good love must have persuaded her otherwise. Because a Swiss tabloid newspaper, Blick, is reporting that the 73 year old Tina and her longtime partner, 57 year old Erwin Bach, are getting married.

The couple, who have been together for nearly 27 years, met in Germany where Bach was a record executive at the label Tina was signed to at the time.

Though they’re supposed to be making it official now, this is not the first time Bach has tried to make Tina his wife. In an interview with Mike Wallace, both Bach and Turner explained that it was probably a good thing that Tina declined his original proposal.

They explained how that went down, in an interview with Mike Wallace.

Mike Wallace: You proposed to her and she turned you down, why?

Erwin: Well I proposed to her before her 50th birthday because I thought it is just the way I feel- or felt at this moment. And I wanted to give her my commitment. And I think we both were lucky that she said no afterwards.

Tina: Erwin and I don’t feel that we need a marriage. We are as married now as if it was legal.

Well, you know love changes things. If the rumors are true, we wish these two the absolute best.
