Tina Turner has died aged 83, her spokesperson has confirmed.
In a statement, they said: "Tina Turner, the 'Queen of Rock'n Roll' has died peacefully today at the age of 83 after a long illness in her home in Kusnacht near Zurich, Switzerland.
"With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model".
The US-born star was one of the best-loved female rock singers, known for her on-stage presence and a string of hits including 'The Best', 'Proud Mary', 'Private Dancer' and 'What's Love Got to Do With It'.
She first found fame alongside ex-husband Ike Turner, with the classic song 'River Deep, Mountain High' among their repertoire.
The abuse Ike subjected his wife to was documented in a 1993 Hollywood biopic - also called 'What's Love Got to Do With It' - starring Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne.
Her life story was also immortalised in a popular stage show, which is still running on London's West End.
Turner sold more than 180 million albums over her career and earned 12 Grammy Awards.
