A representative for Tina Turner has silenced reports suggesting the rock icon has suffered a stroke, insisting she is in "excellent health."

The "Private Dancer" hitmaker, who lives in Switzerland with her husband Erwin Bach, hit headlines on Monday after editors at German news site Express published an article alleging the 74 year old was in recovery following the health crisis.
The story quoted a man called Albert B. Cologne, who claimed to be Turner's friend and driver, stating, "She had a mild stroke, but is well on the road to recovery."

He added, "Tina had to cancel her holiday (in Austria) to recover, (but) she has already managed a smile for her partner Erwin Bach."
However, Turner's spokesperson has since dismissed the unfounded report, saying, "The fact is that Tina enjoys excellent health."
The rep also claimed the superstar did not have plans to vacation in Carinthia, Austria and has never had a driver named Albert.
The false rumors about Turner's health emerge just three months after similar speculation surfaced online in February, when her close pal Oprah Winfrey took it upon herself to deny those allegations and insist the superstar was simply recovering from a bad bout of influenza.
Turner, who wed longtime boyfriend Bach last year, has been keeping a low profile in her adopted Switzerland since retiring in 2009.
