Erwin Bach, Tina Turner’s husband is set to inherit nearly half of her estimated $250 million fortune.
The late singer married music producer Erwin Bach, 67, a decade ago after a 27-year romance, and he donated a kidney to her to save her life in 2017 and supported her through her other health woes including her 2013 stroke just before they married.
Tina’s singer daughter-in-law Afida, 46, who is the widow of her late son Ronnie, told the Sunday Mirror about how the star’s wealth was likely to be split: “As she married in Switzerland, I think around 47 percent will go to the spouse and the rest to the children.”
Tina’s final fortune of $250 million, estimated by Celebrity Net Worth, didn’t only come from her stream of hits including ‘What’s Love Got to do With It’ and ‘We Don’t Need Another Hero’.
She also starred in films such as ‘Tommy’, Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome’, and ‘Last Action Hero’, while her 1993 biopic ‘What’s Love Got to Do With It’ told the story of her path to success and battle to hold onto her stage name during her painful divorce from her abusive ex-husband Ike Turner, who died in 2010 aged 76.
She sold her image and music rights to BMG two years before her death in a deal thought to have been worth $50 million and died in her $76 million Swiss retreat.
