Randy Jackson Confirmed Tina Turner Really Did Shoot Him…Explains Why She Did It
Before we get into it our “Old School News With A New Point Of View,” don’t think that the now 78 year old, and still phenomenal, Tina Turner, is out here bustin’ guns at her age…
This incident reportedly happened back in 1988! So what the hell is going on with this? Wanna know why Tina Turner actually SHOT Michael Jackson’s youngest brother, Randy Jackson, according to Randy? Scroll down and prepare to be amazed…
Randy Jackson reportedly went to Tina’s house and walked in on her and a woman whom he was dating in what he insinuated was a ‘lesbian’ encounter. According to Randy, he and Bernadette – Tina Turner’s assistant of 22 years-confirmed that this shooting incident actually took place.
RANDY: “YES, TINA TURNER SHOT ME”
“Yes, Tina Turner shot me. I have the scar to prove it,” Randy told his followers on twitter when asked if the report was accurate. He added: “Having said that, there was no violence on my part, nor have I ever owned or carried a weapon,” he added. There was reportedly this conversation, as Tina was giving some sound advice to Bernadette, “Bernadette, let me tell you something, you’ve got yourself an Ike Turner, You better get rid of him. I know you’re scared Aaagh.” Tina was furious, and she threw her hands up in disgust. ”I know what it’s like, Bernadette, It’s best for you if you stay here tonight (at her place). Just make sure you get rid of that Randy Jackson first thing tomorrow.”
Apparently, after Randy walked in on the ladies, shards of razor-sharp glass sprayed like darts throughout the bedroom. Everything else that followed seemed to happen quickly. Randy jumped through the broken window and paused for a moment. Then, as he moved, glass fragments on Tina’s plush cream carpet could be heard crunching beneath his hard determined steps. Bernadette would say Randy kept telling her something to effect of “I love you and so on.” She said it was hard to really hear because it just sounded like he was muttering. Soon, Tina appeared.
Supposedly, she calmly walked into the bedroom and stared at her bedside table where she hid her loaded handgun. Moments later, she reportedly cocked the weapon, then turned and aimed the loaded barrel at Randy Jackson’s head. Allegedly she said with sheer determination, ‘Freeze or I’ll blow your brains out.’
Tina, several feet away from Randy, raised the gun and blew a hole in the ceiling. Randy charged straight at Tina like a raging bull. Still in total control, Tina moved the barrel slightly to the side and fired towards the doorway. She again pointed the gun at Randy. Check out the rest of tweets that Randy posted and a newspaper clipping of this alleged event.
Now although Tina was about 49 at the time, her body of work, and focus on her family life seems to outweigh any reckless behavior that may, or may not, have happened. So how does Randy feel about it now? “It was in the Eighties. And I don’t hold a grudge against Tina, she’s a great artist an asset to our industry,” he concluded.
That’s a very interesting story and I’m sure there are many questions swirling around, about it. But the fact remains that many of us have been involved in some type of “dramatic” situation…especially in our younger days. Though, for most of us, it probably didn’t involve getting shot by anyone, let alone one of the biggest music icons in the world.
