The brother of the late-great Michael Jackson said the potentially fatal encounter occurred when he went to Tina’s house and walked in on the singer and his then girlfriend in acting a little too affectionate toward each other.
The other woman was allegedly Turner’s assistant of 22 years, Bernadette, who reportedly confirmed that this shooting incident took place, according to I Love Old School Music.
“Yes, Tina Turner shot me. I have the scar to prove it,” Randy told followers on twitter when asked if the report was true.
“Having said that, there was no violence on my part, nor have I ever owned or carried a weapon,” he added.
According to the report, Tina was advising Bernadette on her relationship with Jackson.
“Bernadette, let me tell you something, you’ve got yourself an Ike Turner, You better get rid of him. I know you’re scared. I know what it’s like, Bernadette. It’s best for you if you stay here tonight. Just make sure you get rid of that Randy Jackson first thing tomorrow.”
When Randy dropped by Turner’s home to try to convince Bernadette to leave with him, he became furious when no one would answer the door. He then allegedly hurled a flower-pot through the window — and that’s when all hell broke loose.
Tina reportedly calmly aimed her loaded gun at Randy Jackson’s head. Allegedly she said ‘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 reportedly 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.
