Married: Tina Turner, 73, and longtime boyfriend Erwin Bach, 57, a German music producer, in a quiet Swiss civil ceremony in Kuesnacht, the town near Zurich where they live, reports Reuters. How longtime is he? Oh, they’ve been dating since 1985. Why now? Would love to know. Much bigger party — including a Buddhist water ceremony — planned for this weekend, report the Swiss papers. It’s a second marriage for the leggy multiple Grammy winner, who famously left bandleader Ike Turner in 1978.
