Feb. 15 (UPI) -- Oprah Winfrey took to Twitter Saturday to shoot down reports her friend Tina Turner had suffered a stroke.

Earlier in the day, reports surfaced that Turner, whose real name is Anna Mae Bullock, had had a stroke at her Zurich, Switizerland home.

Not so, says Winfrey, who is good friends with the singer.

"Tina had a bad flu weeks ago. She's recovered. And LIVING life! Sent me a single long-stem red rose for my birthday," Winfrey tweeted.
