Tina Turner and Ike Turner were a very dynamic couple both in real life and on stage. But what makes this couple even more special is the story they have.
Tina Turner rose to fame in 1950 and was named “Queen of Rock And Roll.” The two were young and joined forces after meeting at a nightclub in Manhattan.
The two quickly began performing and singing together and became known as “Tina and Ike Turner.”
In addition to music, they got along well in their personal lives. They soon began to bond romantically even though they were five years apart.
Diva years later went to Mexico where they took the vows of marriage. This is where their journey as a consolidated couple began.
What was thought to be a beautiful sequel became a horrible moment. Years after the divorce from Ike Tina confessed that during the relationship he had suffered physical and psychological abuse.
She published a book “My Love Story” where she showed that her ex-husband hated any form of confrontation. The moment she asked for an answer he beat her.
This lasted for ten years. In 1976 he decided to divorce. Luckily she had the opportunity to enjoy her life again falling in love with music executive, Erwin Bach.
When they started the relationship they were just staying with each other. In this way, they created the most beautiful relationship that could exist.
She says “He had the prettiest face. You could not miss it. My heart went bu-bum. It means that a soul has met. My hands were shaking. And Roger said to me, ‘Tina, you ride with Erwin,’ and I wanted to go, ‘Yay!’ ”
“It’s love. It’s something we both have for each other. I always refer to it as an electrical charge. I still have it. Even though when I left her two hours ago, I still have that feeling. It’s in my heart. I feel very warm about this. ”
The moment he proposed to her was very special because she did not say yes immediately. “I said,‘ I don’t have an answer. ’It wasn’t yes, it wasn’t no. Marriage says ownership. I didn’t want that ‘my’ anything, anymore. I had enough of that. ”
After that, he did not ask her about this anymore. Only after 3 decades did she say yes. They got married in 2013 in Switzerland.
They quickly thought of moving to where they currently live. According to her:
“I am very happy in Switzerland and I feel at home here. I could not imagine a better place to live. ”
Her husband even donated a kidney that saved her life. Her husband has made her the most special “gift of life”. This was the greatest sacrifice of love one could make for her.
We wish Tina a peaceful and blessed life.
