Tina Turner stroke: Singer denies she is recovering after debilitating condition
A German website published an article on Monday (26 May) claiming that the 74-year-old singer is currently recovering in hospital
A German website published an article on Monday (26 May) claiming that the 74-year-old singer is currently recovering in hospital following a crippling health scare.
“She had a mild stroke, but is well on the road to recovery,” they quoted Albert B. Cologne, who they claimed was Turner’s driver, as saying.
“Tina had to cancel her holiday (in Austria) to recover, (but) she has already managed a smile for her partner Erwin Bach.”
A spokesperson for the “Private Dancer” singer has since dismissed the story as inaccurate, saying: “The fact is that Tina enjoys excellent health.”
The representative has since added that Turner has never met the man who provided the quotes in the article, neither had she been in the process of planning a holiday to Austria.
This is the second time the musician has been forced to silence rumours about her health in the media.
Friend Oprah Winfrey was called on to rubbish similar claims that Turner had suffered a stroke made back in February this year.
“Tina had a bad flu weeks ago,” she wrote on Twitter. “She's recovered. And LIVING life! Sent me a single long-stem red rose for my birthday.”
Turner married her long-time partner Erwin Bach, at a private ceremony in Switzerland – where the couple now reside – last year.
