Randy Jackson:

Tina Turner Shot Me!

7/2/2011 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Here's something you probably didn't expect to read this morning -- according to Randy Jackson, he was once shot by Tina Turner. The bitch is back!

Randy made the strange, random revelation on Twitter, posting the above tweet and then saying, "I went to Tina's house to see my girlfriend. I guess I caught them off guard. Hmmm.... Next question."

Tina's old assistant once wrote about the incident in a book, saying Tina fired a shot through the ceiling and one through the doorway before Randy leapt through a window.

Attempts to reach a rep for Turner were unsuccessful.

Well, half the questions were rude and disrespectful. You can ask questions with respect and without "attacking" someone.

And as always, people who have never met MJ or any of the sibblings think they know much more than the family themselves.
All of it based on what media says.

Maybe he don't know how to please a woman.
A girlfriend cheating on him with a woman his baby's mama left him for his own brother.

Randy, please...

The Jackson 5 and the Jacksons had a good run and are now part of American musical history, but that is in the past. It seems that you, Michael's brothers, never understood that Michael took off and entered an entire other league, another universe, than the rest of you. He knew it though, and it perhaps sometimes made him feel lonely.

It has been painful to hear about you trying to fix a reunion for years and years, right up to his death, and not being able to take no for an answer. He didn't even want to do the Victory tour, and that was an era ago. You are very good harmonicas, but he was a Steinway grand, and you didn't get it and still don't.

It must be very strange to live in the shadow of the legend, a legend you knew as a brother, family member and ordinary guy, and few in a family like that can match the talent of the one most gifted. In your family, Janet. In Judy Garland's, Liza Minelli. But they are exceptions.

You brothers have to find your own identities. Stop the reunion crap, and stop the "tributes". Let life take a new turn, look for something else! Please!

Excerpt from the book describing the shooting incident:
http://www.lipstickalley.com/f227/tina-turner-confronted-randy-gun-98-book-269137/

If half of it is true, Randy deserved it. He was scary and possessive. He broke into Tina's house out of jealousy, because he was sure his girlfriend was cheating on him with Tina. Which may well not have been true at all, but even if it were, that's no way to behave.

To delusional poster calling himself/herself "MichaelJACKSON", who do you think you are talking for the whole MJ fan community? What the fan community are livid about. And btw, as you can see there are people who are interested in hearing about the story about Tina and Randy. That is a pretty intriguing story and TMZ chose to print it as well. And who are you to complain about what questions Randy takes his time to reply to? He has no obligation what so ever to answer anything and if you're not interested in him why do you even spend your time reading his tweets as well as TMZ articles about him. Jesus...

This is why Twitter is such a waste of time. Yours for reading and printing it and mine for commenting on it. Dumb, isn't it? What's next?
