They’re official!  After spending more than 25 years together, Tina Turner and German music executive Erwin Bach are married, Reuters reports. The couple said “I do” at a registry office in the Kuesnacht suburb of Zurich, where they live.

Turner, 73, and her new husband will also host a Buddhist water ceremony at their lakefront mansion, according to the report.

When contacted by ABC News, a rep for the singer said, “We do not comment on any of our artists’ personal lives.”

The “Proud Mary” singer was married once before, to Ike Turner. She filed for divorce in 1976, and later revealed in her autobiography that she had been abused during the marriage. (Ike Turner, who denied the claims, died of a cocaine overdose in 2008.)
