Tina Turner ‘to marry this month’

Tina Turner

Tina Turner will apparently wed her long-term partner Erwin Bach on July 21.

The American singer has been dating German music producer Erwin Bach for over 25 years and in April it was reported they were engaged.

The couple are now planning to tie the knot, with claims the wedding will take place in Europe.

Tina, 73, and her beau have lived together in Zurich for over 15 years.

"According to reports, Turner and Bach will tie the knot at their home on Lake Zurich on July 21," reported New York Post.

The couple met when he was a producer for label EMI in 1985. They spent time getting to know each other and eventually began a relationship a year later.

Although there is widespread speculation the pair will make things official before the end of the month, there are conflicting reports about where the nuptials will take place.

As well as Zurich, the French Riviera has been mooted as a possible wedding destination. The couple share a villa there, with claims they are planning a lavish bash for their family and friends, including fashion designer Giorgio Armani. He is said to have designed the gown Tina will wear, with guests asked to dress in white for the Buddhist ceremony.

Tina recently gushed about her relationship with Erwin, saying he makes her happier than she ever thought possible.

This will be the star's second trip down the aisle. She was married to Ike Turner for 14 years and detailed the abuse she suffered during the marriage in her autobiography I, Tina.
