Soul legend Tina Turner has relinquished her American citizenship according to documents filed in the U.S. Embassy in Bern.

She had initiated the process with Swiss authorities in January.

She signed her "statement of voluntary relinquishment of U.S. citizenship" at the U.S. embassy in Bern last month, the Washington Times reports.

Turner, 73, is fluent in German and has been a long-time Swiss resident. In July she married her longtime boyfriend, German music producer Erwin Bach, 57.

Turner, who was in an abusive 14-year marriage to Ike Turner divorced him in 1976. They had one child, a son, Ronald. She has a second son Craig from a relationship with saxophonist Raymond Hill.

Turner has relinquished rather than renounced her U.S. citizenship. According to the Post, the fact that Turner did not formally renounce her U.S. citizenship, taking Swiss citizenship with the intent of losing her American citizenship, means that there are no tax or other penalties to her decision.

Switzerland has no restrictions on holding dual nationality.
