Rock star and longtime Swiss resident Tina Turner is no longer an American citizen, according to a US media report.

The Washington Post, citing an activity report from the US Embassy in Bern, said on Tuesday that Turner paid a visit there on October 24th to relinquish her citizenship.

Turner, 73, retired as a singer in 2009 and has been living in Switzerland for 20 years.

She made news in Switzerland when she became a Swiss citizen earlier this year before getting married in July to her long-time German boyfriend, Erwin Bach, a music producer.

She lives in a lake-front mansion near Zurich, in addition to owning a home on the French Riviera.
