TORONTO — Music icon Tina Turner has married her longtime beau — nearly four decades after the end of her turbulent marriage to Ike Turner.

According to a source, Turner, 73, and music industry executive Erwin Bach, 57, made it official last month at a Registry Office in Zurich, Switzerland.

The couple will celebrate the nuptials with a Buddhist spiritual ceremony on July 21 at Chateau Algonquin, the lake home they have shared since 1995 in Kusmacht, near Zurich.

Guests — who have been asked to wear white — will be surrounded by orchids and will enjoy food prepared by local chefs Rico Zandonella and Horst Petermann.

There has been no confirmation from reps for the “Simply the Best” singer.

Turner and Bach, who met at a party in London, have been together since 1986.

According to Swiss media reports, they were engaged last April, around the time Turner became a Swiss citizen.

Turner was married to her musical partner Ike Turner from 1962 and 1976. Their rocky union was chronicled in the 1993 movie What’s Love Got to Do With It.

Ike Turner died in 2007 at the age of 76.

Turner has a 55-year-old son, Craig (with musician Raymond Hill), and a 52-year-old son, Ronald (with Ike Turner).
