TINA TURNER “RELINQUISHES” HER US CITIZENSHIP!

What’s love got to do with it? Reports are  that the iconic soul singer Tina Turner is no longer an American citizen.

According to reports in the Washington Post and elsewhere, Turner  has formally relinquished her US citizenship, months after she was sworn in as a  citizen of Switzerland, where she lives with her new husband.

The 73-year-old Tennessee-born ‘Simply The Best’ singer has been  living in the European country for almost 20 years.

She became a Swiss citizen in April and wed German music executive  Erwin Bach.

According to the newspaper Turner became a Swiss citizen with the  intent to lose her US citizenship and that she had declared that she no longer  has any strong ties to the United States “except for family, and has no plans to  reside in the United States in the future.”

The Washington Post added that by choosing to relinquish, rather  than renounce her US citizenship formally, Turner will avoid taxes and  penalties.
