Erwin Bach, Tina Turner’s husband, is anticipated to get a sizable inheritance from the legendary singer’s rumored $250 million fortune.
Afida Turner, who was married to Tina’s late son Ronnie until his death in 2022 at the age of 62 from complications from colon cancer, provided insight into the potential distribution of the celebrity’s money in an exclusive conversation with the Sunday Mirror.
The 46-year-old shared, “As she married in Switzerland, I think around 47 percent will go to the spouse and the rest to the children.”
Tina Turner’s family extends beyond biological ties, as she also adopted two of her abusive ex-husband Ike Turner’s sons. Additionally, she welcomed a son named Craig from a previous relationship with musician Raymond Hill when she was just 18 years old. Tragically, Craig took his own life in 2018, an event Tina described as the “saddest moment as a mother.”
Afida further revealed that the complex family dynamics may complicate the estate’s distribution. Tina’s two biological children are Craig and Ronnie, with Ike Jr. being the non-adopted son.
Following a 27-year relationship, the renowned singer and the 67-year-old music producer got married ten years ago. Tina and Bach have a strong relationship as a result of Bach’s steadfast support during Tina’s health problems, including a life-saving kidney donation in 2017 and her stroke in 2013.
In a heartwarming Valentine’s day social post, Turner wrote “Who would have thought that a moment of boldness would lead to decades of shared bliss? I didn’t.
When I first asked Erwin out, it was a spur-of-the-moment decision. Sometimes seconds change your life. Because you feel a spark, an instant connection. For me, that’s what my thumb ring symbolizes.
The moment I put it on my thumb, I felt stronger, more confident. Since then, it brings me luck and always reminds me to stay strong and seize opportunities. In this spirit: I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day this year and overcome all your challenges with love and courage in your heart!”
