Why Did Tina Turner Move To Switzerland

Tina Turner moved to Switzerland in the mid-1990s to join her husband Erwin Bach who had set up a home there almost a decade after they met. They married in a civil ceremony in 2013 with a Buddhist celebration said to follow at their home. During a 1997 interview with Larry King, Turner said she left America because her "success" and boyfriend were in another country. She became a Swiss citizen after they got married "with the intent to lose her U.S. citizenship" as she saw Switzerland as her home and citizenship gave her more rights, such as the ability to buy property.
