R&B/rock legend Tina Turner (pictured) has surfaced in order to put to rest the rumors that have been floating around for the past few months regarding her alleged stroke in February. According to the diva, who is known for her vivacity, she is in “excellent health” despite the fact that several Dutch and German publications claimed that the performer suffered the cardiovascular-related episode, reports News.com.au.
Turner, who at 74 years young looks decades younger than her age, made headlines this past winter, after Euro news outlets reported that she had suffered a stroke.
It was reported that the songstress, who now lives in Switzerland with her husband of one year, Erwin Bach, a German music executive, fell ill and had to cancel her holiday to recover. German news source Express reported that Turner’s driver, Albert B. Cologne, confirmed the stroke, saying, “She had a mild stroke but is well on the road to recovery.”
But according to the News.com.au, Turner claims she never had a driver named Cologne.
Therefore, Turner’s spokesperson has blasted the stroke rumors stating, “The fact is that Tina enjoys excellent health.”
According to the multi-Grammy-winning artist, who is known for her sexy legs, she is just thrilled to be able to still record and her latest release, “Love Songs,” proves it.
