Green with Envy

9/23/2008 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The 62-year-old resurfaced at a Chicago concert recently, looking shady.
Al Green

In 1974, Green's girlfriend doused him with a pan of boiling hot grits while he was showering causing third-degree burns on Green's back, stomach and arms. She then shot and killed herself with Al's gun. He subsequently became a pastor at the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Memphis.

Green released a new album in May, which contains tracks with John Legend and Corinne Bailey Rae.

No one ever even suspected that he killed that woman or that she didn't burn him with grits. But if you black and some broad ends up dead, you probably did it! Huh, TEX.

Al better watch out because there is no statue of limitation on being black and having a dead broad burn you with grits.

Please don't comment on the killing if you know nothing about that story. He did not kill that woman and it was never suspected that he did. Some of you commenting probably never even heard of him until today, but yet you got him pinned as a murder.
