Rep Denies Tina Turner Suffered a Stroke


Venturelli/Getty Images for Giorgio ArmaniA rep for Tina Turner says there’s no truth to a report that claimed the singer has suffered a stroke. The spokesperson tells Australia’s, “The fact is that Tina enjoys excellent health.”

Reportedly, the German news site Express posted a story — which has since been deleted — that quoted an alleged driver of Turner’s, Albert B. Cologne, as saying, “She had a mild stroke, but is well on the road to recovery.”

In another quote, Cologne allegedly said, “Tina had to cancel her holiday to recover, she has already managed a smile for her partner Erwin Bach.”

Turner’s rep says the 74-year-old singer does not have a driver with the surname Cologne.

Turner married Bach last year. They live in Switzerland.
