Proud Tina Turner throws wedding party

Tina Turner is celebrating her wedding to Erwin Bach with a party at her Swiss lakeside estate near Zurich.

Swiss media are reporting that pop stars David Bowie, Sade and talk show impresario Oprah Winfrey were among the more than 120 guests invited to Sunday’s Buddhist-inspired event.

Zurich police spokeswoman Esther Surber said authorities are temporarily barring boats on Lake Zurich from nearing Turner’s Chateau Algonquin estate in the Kuesnacht municipality to prevent onlookers from causing accidents on the waterway.

About a month ago, the 73-year-old American pop star tied the knot with Bach, a 57-year-old German music executive and her longtime beau, at the town hall in the wealthy community. Turner’s marriage to her former musical partner, the late Ike Turner, ended in divorce.

Singer Rowland helped back to shore

The Coast Guard said singer Kelly Rowland was among the passengers on a private boat escorted back to Cape Cod after the captain became disoriented.

Lt. Ruairi White tells the Cape Cod Times that the boat’s captain was following a commercial whale-watching vessel Friday, lost sight of the boat and became disoriented north of Provincetown, Mass.

The Coast Guard directed a commercial towboat operator to escort the private vessel back to Provincetown.

TowBoat U.S. Provincetown said on its Facebook page that the boat was 33 miles north of Provincetown. It says the passengers “were great. Just a little shook up.”

Rowland is a founding member of Destiny’s Child, where Beyonce got her start. The group briefly reunited this year when Rowland and Michelle Williams joined Beyonce for a Super Bowl performance.
