Singer Tina Turner is a married woman after quietly exchanging vows with her long-term partner in Switzerland, according to local reports.

The 73-year-old R&B-rock icon, who became a Swiss citizen in April, wed German record executive Erwin Bach, 57, in a discreet civil ceremony on the banks of Lake Zurich in Kusnacht “a few days ago,” municipal official Hannes Friess said.

The newlyweds will celebrate the union in a Buddhist ceremony at their estate in Kusnacht on Sunday, and reports suggest 120 guests will attend the festivities.

Before her relationship with Bach began in the mid-1980s, Turner was married to her musical partner Ike Turner for 14 years. The pair divorced in 1978, and Ike Turner’s alleged abuse of his wife was chronicled in the singer’s 1993 biopic, What’s Love Got to Do with It.

News of Turner’s wedding plans spread in early April amid reports suggesting she and Bach had become engaged, but a representative for the singer refused to comment.
