'Queen of Rock 'n' Roll' Tina Turner dies at 83

US singer Tina Turner, dubbed the "Queen of Rock 'n' Roll," has died at the age of 83.

Her representative said on Wednesday that Turner died peacefully at her home in Switzerland after a long illness.

Born in the southern state of Tennessee, Turner made her debut in the 1950s.

The superstar formed a musical partnership with her husband Ike in the 1960s. But she left him due to domestic abuse and embarked on a hugely successful solo career.

Her chart-topping songs included "What's Love Got to Do with It", "The Best", and "Private Dancer."

She won eight Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Turner sold more than 180 million albums worldwide and her life became the basis for a film and a Broadway musical.
