The DailyMail is reporting that Oprah Winfrey is denying claims that her friend and music legend Tina Turner suffered a stroke at home in Switzerland.  The internet was all abuzz last night with rumors that the 74-year-old rock icon was being cared for by a nurse.

Winfrey, who recently attended Turner’s wedding to long time beau Erwin Bach last summer, tweeted the following message, “Tina had a bad flu weeks ago. She’s recovered. And LIVING life! Sent me a single long-stem red rose for my birthday,”  said Winfrey.

Several sites falsely reported the information including Hollywood Street King.

Turner, who retired in 2009 and is now an official citizen of Switzerland, has reportedly recorded a new compilation album of love songs. The project is said to also include some of her biggest chart topping hits like “What’s Love Got to Do With It” and “Private Dancer.”
