Diva superstar singer Tina Turner, 73, still known for her killer voice with legs to match, has turned in her American citizenship for Swiss citizenship according to multiple sources including ABC News which reported the story first on Friday.
Though not highly publicized, Tina Turner has been living in Kuesnacht, a suburb of Zurich, Switzerland for the past thirteen years. Additionally, it is being reported that Turner has completed the requirements of passing a local civics exam regarding Switzerland and has already participated in the interview that is needed for citizenship in the country.
Leaving her American hometown of Nutbush, Tennessee behind, Turner has told members of the press in her new home country that she feels at home in Switzerland, and she claims she cannot imagine a better place to live.
Accompanying the story, it has been reported that Turner went to Switzerland with her longtime music manager who is German record executive Erwin Bach.
Turner began her incredible career with her former husband Ike Turner, when the two had hit records such as “Proud Mary” nearly fifty years ago. After a public and volatile parting with Ike Turner after 14 years of marriage, Tina became a bigger star as a solo recording artist and stage performer in the 1980s when she scored with her extremely commercially popular and critically acclaimed record album “Private Dancer” - which included the record of the year “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” That title also became the name of a hit movie about her claims of physical abuse during her married life with Ike Turner.
