Iconic singer Tina Turner is rebutting rumors circulating in European media that she suffered a stroke on February, with a spokesman telling Australia's News.com.au that she's in "excellent health" in a story posted Monday.

Turner, 74, who lives in Switzerland with husband Erwin Back, a German music executive, was seen last Thursday launching a new album in Zurich.

"The fact is that Tina enjoys excellent health," a spokesman for Turner told News.com.au.

RadarOnline.com reported Monday that German and Dutch publications had reported that the former singer of the Ike and Tina Turner Revue had suffered the stroke.

"Tina had to cancel her holiday to recover, she has already managed a smile for her partner Erwin Bach," RadarOnline had the publications quoting a driver for Turner.

Albert B. Cologne was quoted by a German news source, according to London's Daily Mail, as saying: "She had a mild stroke, but is well on the road to recovery."

A Turner representative, though, told the Daily Mail that the singer of such hits as "Proud Mary" and "What's Love Got to Do with It" does not have a driver by that name and did not have to cancel an earlier vacation because of a stroke.

The Daily Mail said an earlier rumor about Turner suffering a February stroke was refuted then by friend, media mogul Oprah Winfrey, on Twitter.

The tweet came after the website HollywoodStreetKing.com posted an "exclusive" on Feb. 14 stating that Turner suffered the stroke.

"A source exclusively tells HSK that Tina Turner, whose real name is, Anna Mae Bullock, – recently suffered a stroke at her home in Zurich, Switzerland," stated the website in February. "We're told the songstress remains in her Swiss home, under nurses' care. This, about seven-months after the 74-year-old legend tied the knot in July 2013 – with longtime beau, Erwin Bach."

Turner was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991 with her ex-husband Ike Turner. The Hall of Fame bio states that the couple's revue "was one of the highest energy ensembles on the soul circuit in the late 1960s and early 1970s."
