Tina Turner and her husband, Erwin Bach were expanding their real estate property portfolio less than a couple of years before the ”Rock N’ Roll Queen” passed away.
Turner and Bach snatched up a jaw-dropping five-acre home in Switzerland, worth an estimated US$116 million. The legendary singer married German-born Erwin Bach and was living in Switzerland for several years. So, after the wedding, as she became a citizen, she was permitted to own land.
Overlooking Lake Zurich, the property includes 10 structures. It is a beautiful home with a swimming pool and boat dock. Other than that, the property has its own pond and stream.
Bach once stated that the purchase made sense, given their nationality. Also, he added that they ”feel very comfortable in Switzerland. Due to the pandemic and its consequences we, like many other Swiss- unfortunately, are refraining from travel.”
The singing star passed away in her Switzerland home, an estate called Chateau Algonquin in Zurich, which she rented for years with her German husband Erwin Bach. Turner became quite fond of the European country, with the pair eventually deciding to splurge on a sprawling estate in Staefa, which overlooks Lake Zurich, in September 2021.
Turner and Bach – who tied the knot back in 2013 – paid US$116m for the 10-building mansion on the lake and used the estate as a “weekend retreat”.
The couple’s rental home, ”Chateau Algonquin”, where Turner passed away, is in Kusnacht, southeast of Zurich. People are sending tributes in the form of flowers at the gated area of the Kusnacht home.
As the rock and soul icon, Tina Turner passed away at 83 after a prolonged illness, her family said in a statement, ”With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model. With her music and inexhaustible vitality, Tina Turner thrilled millions of fans and inspired many artists of subsequent generations.”
The exact cause of death was not immediately available, though Turner had a stroke. She had battled intestinal cancer and a kidney transplant in recent years. Tina Turner, the singing sensation, overcame massive domestic abuse from her ex-husband, Ike Turner. Eventually, she emerged as one of the rock and soul icons, and the most astonishing performer.
Turner’s funeral service will be a private affair, exclusively attended by Tina’s close relatives and friends. Her spokesperson shared: “Close friends and family will attend a private funeral ceremony.” The official announcement was made through Tina’s Instagram account, informing her devoted fans of her passing.
The statement posted on her social media page read: “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tina Turner. With her music and her boundless passion for life, she enchanted millions of fans around the world and inspired the stars of tomorrow. Today we say goodbye to a dear friend who leaves us all her greatest work: her music. All our heartfelt compassion goes out to her family. Tina, we will miss you dearly.”
Turner is survived by her husband Erwin Bach. She was predeceased by sons Ron Turner and Craig Turner, and sister Alline Bullock.
