So Tina Turner’s husband, no not the former one who used to beat her up, that’s Ike. We mean Erwin Bach, her 16 year younger husband who she met in 1985 and it turns out that Tina Turner suffered a stroke which prevented her from standing on her own or walking. After she learned to walk again she found out she had intestinal cancer.
The news was revealed in the new memoirs of Tina Turner titled My Love Story, and in there she details the relationship between herself and Erwin Bach who proposed to her first in 2003, a proposal she turned down. But later on in 2016, he tried again and she said yes.
The euphoria was short lived as she fell sick shortly after. Side effects of natural remedies she employed resulted in a kidney failure, and her husband Erwin saved her life with one of his.
Here’s what she had to say about her life saving husband.
“I lived through a hellish marriage that almost destroyed me, but I went on. I know that my medical adventure is far from over. But I’m still here — we’re still here, closer than we ever imagined. I can look back and understand why my karma was the way it was. Good came out of bad. Joy came out of pain. And I have never been so completely happy as I am today.”
