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.

########FOR THOSE OF YOU, WHO WEREN'T THERE########

Randy made an appointment with the fans a week ago, saying he will be on twitter on June 2, at 11:00 pacific time to answer our questions. So we waited a week and sent him VERY LEGIT questions. He ignored important questions to take a question from a fan who tweeted "so how hard was the brick you **** when tina turner fired a gun at ur trespassing a$$? did ur anus ever recover?" So no, Randy didn't out of the blue tweeted this. And who cares about this! What MJ fan community is livid about is that this man made us wait for a week, then wasted our 2 hours to talk about whole a lot of nothing! Randy is a liar and greedy vulture who fits perfectly into the Jackson family. The whole point he pulled this stunt was to promote a "reunion" with the rest of his talentless Jacksons that Michael did NOT want to reunite with!

"I have no plans to record or tour with them" ~MICHAEL JACKSON

You state that "Randy is a liar and a greedy vulture that fits perfectly into the Jackson family." You continue on to call them all talentless. It makes me wonder why YOU would wait a week for him to answer questions. If you don't like the Jackson family it seems a bit odd to me. Most people don't follow someone on twitter that they don't like.

To HumanNature:

You said "WHAT FANS????

RANDY DO NOT HAVE ANY!!!

HE'S A NOBODY!!!"

That is why I said give him some respect. Without Randy we would not have had some of The Jacksons best songs since he was the composer to many of them as I pointed out...

Muppet: Just what I was thinking...I feel sorry for a person calling himself/herself "MichaelJACKSON", disrespecting someone like that and yet sits on their ass for one week to ask questions to someone they don't even like. And also claiming to talk for all of Michael Jackson's fans all over the world. Delusional...

Jodi: He was asked the questions and answered obviously.

HumanNature:

You stated:

"I DON'T GIVE A SH*T WHAT HE WROTE!!!

THAT IS TOTALLY IRRELEVANT TO ME!!!"

and yet you brought up in an earlier post that he is a nobody and has no fans. Learn to separate different things that an individual does. A person can be guilty of domestic violence and still be a great songwriter and musician who has fans. And isn't it ironic that you say that his musical legacy has nothing to do with this topic (which I agree on with you but I wasn't calling you out on that) and still you feel the need to disrespect Randy by saying he has no fans and is a nobody. (It was the latter I was responding to by telling you to give Randy respect in that particular regard). And what's up with the caps lock? Is there something wrong with your computer?

And btw, are you aware of all the legal issues (including domestic violence) James Brown was in during his life? That didn't stop Michael from loving and respecting him more than any other artist.

"At the age of 16, James Brown was arrested for theft and served 3 years in prison.
In 1988, Brown was arrested following an alleged high-speed car chase on Interstate 20 along the Georgia-South Carolina state border. He was convicted of carrying an unlicensed pistol and assaulting a police officer, along with various drug-related and driving offenses. Although he was sentenced to six years in prison, he was eventually released in 1991 after serving only three years of his sentence. Brown's FBI file, released to The Washington Post in 2007 under the Freedom of Information Act,[64] related Brown's claim that the high-speed chase did not occur as claimed by the police, and that local police shot at his car several times during an incident of police harassment and assaulted him after his arrest.[65] Local authorities found no merit to Brown's accusations.
In another incident, the police were summoned to Brown's residence on July 3, 2000 after he was accused of charging an electric company repairman with a steak knife when the repairman visited Brown's house to investigate a complaint about having no lights at the residence.[66]
In 2003, Brown was pardoned by the South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole, and Pardon Services for past crimes that he was convicted of committing in South Carolina.[67]
During the 1990s and 2000s, Brown was repeatedly arrested for domestic violence:
Adrienne Rodriguez, his third wife, had him arrested four times between the mid-1980s and mid-1990s on charges of assault.
In January 2004, Brown was arrested in South Carolina on a domestic violence charge after Tomi Rae Hynie accused him of pushing her to the floor during an argument at their home, where she suffered scratches and bruises to her right arm and hip. Later that year in June 2004, Brown pleaded no contest to the domestic violence incident, but served no jail time. Instead, Brown was required to forfeit a US$1,087 bond as punishment.[68]
In January 2005, a woman named Jacque Hollander filed a lawsuit against James Brown, which stemmed from an alleged 1988 forcible rape. When the case was initially heard before a judge in 2002, Hollander's claims against Brown were dismissed by the court as the limitations period for filing the suit had expired. Hollander claimed that stress from the alleged assault later caused her to contract Graves' Disease, a thyroid condition. Hollander claimed that the incident took place in South Carolina while she was employed by Brown as a publicist. Hollander alleged that, during her ride in a van with Brown, Brown pulled over to the side of the road and sexually assaulted her while he threatened her with a shotgun. In her case against Brown, Hollander entered as evidence a DNA sample and a polygraph result, but the evidence was not considered due to the limitations defense. Hollander later attempted to bring her case before the Supreme Court but nothing became of her complaint"

Let's face it. THe rest of the Jackson clan (Janet not included)will be trying to use as many 15 minutes of fame as they can. Every few months when their names drop off the pages they will think of something else to come up with.

This will be going for years and years. MJ is gone (good riddance) and we are left with no talent hacks who needed their brother for money.

BUT, it won't end there. We still have to deal with MJ's kids and all of the press covering them once they get out on their own.

It will never end. It's like the Karcrapians. We are stuck with them

What awful reporting! Randy did not just "randomly" do anything. He had a Q&A on twitter and someone made a rude comment about him being shot by Tina Turner in an attempt to scar his character and he just responded by saying "yes it did happen". he also went on to give a brief explanation of the incident. I now understand what MJ went through with you reporters. Ugh!!! Where did you learn this kind of journalism?
