After 27 years together, Tina Turner wants the world to know that love's got everything to do with it.

Reuters reports 73-year-old Turner married her longtime boyfriend, Erwin Back, in a civil ceremony in Switzerland "a few days ago," a municipal officer shared Wednesday. The two have been in a relationship for a whopping 27 years and have cohabited together in Zurich, Switzerland for about 15 years.

This is Turner's second marriage. The eight-time Grammy winner was previously married to Ike Turner from 1962-76. She later revealed in her 1986 memoir, I, Tina, that her former husband was physically-abusive. In his 1999 autobiography, Ike Turner wrote, "There have been times when I punched her to the ground without thinking. But I have never beat her." Their tumultuous marriage was portrayed in the 1993 movie, "What's Love Got to Do with It," also the title of one of Turner's hit songs.

The singing sensation retired in 2009.
