Soul music legend Tina Turner filed paperwork in late October at the U.S. Embassy in Switzerland to relinquish her citizenship, media reports said.
The 73-year-old Turner, known for such hits as "Proud Mary," "Ooh Poo Pah Doo" and "What's Love Got to Do with It," signed the forms to voluntarily relinquish her citizenship on Oct. 24, The Washington Post reported, citing a document from the U.S. Embassy in Bern.
Turner affirmed in the documents that she does not have strong ties to the United States, "except for family, and has no plans to reside in the United States in the future," newspaper said.
The soul singer, who was born in Nutbush, Tennessee, on Nov. 26, 1939, has lived in Switzerland for more than two decades and married her long-time boyfriend, German producer Erwin Bach, in July.
Turner, who has won eight Grammys and sold more than 100 million records in her career, became a Swiss citizen on April 10. EFE
