Before we get into it our “Old School News With A New Point Of View,” don’t think that the now 79 year old (and still phenomenal) Tina Turner is running ’round busting guns today. According to Michael Jacksons younger bro,’ Randy Jackson, this incident happened back in 1988. So what the hell is going on with this? Read the details below…

According to several reports (including Randy Jackson’s), Randy went to Tina’s house and walked in on her and his then girlfriend in what he insinuated was some type of ‘affectionate’ encounter. If that his insinuation is true, it gives a whole different meaning to the hit “Private Dancer”…hmmmm. Okay all jokes aside, this is only Randy’s side of the story and not Tina’s (because she’s never explained her side of the shooting as far as we know), so to be fair, we’ll try to keep an open mind. But according to Mr. Jackson, he and Bernadette – Tina Turner’s assistant of 22 years- confirmed that this shooting incident actually took place.


“Yes, Tina Turner shot me. I have the scar to prove it,” Randy told some 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 this conversation as Tina was giving some sound advice to Bernadette. Tina said to her, “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.”
