After her turbulent relationship with Ike ended, Tina met a German music manager Erwin Bach in 1986. The two — who were more than 15 years apart in age — eventually sparked a romance, but didn’t tie the knot until July 2013.
“We allow each other the freedom and space to be individuals while also being a couple,” he said tina Star wrote in her 2020 memoir, “A force of nature in his own right, Erwin has never been the least bit intimidated by my career, talents or fame. He shows me that true love doesn’t require dimming my light to let it shine. On the contrary, we are the light in each other’s lives and together we want to shine as brightly as possible.”
She described falling in love with Bach as “another exercise in getting out of my comfort zone and being open to the unexpected gifts life has to offer.”

“My saddest moment as a mother,” she tweeted at the time. “On Thursday, July 19, 2018, I said a final goodbye to my son, Craig Raymond Turner, as I met with family and friends to scatter his ashes off the coast of California.
