There is a brief yet shocking report circulating on the internet stating that Randy Jackson, Michael Jackson’s brother and former member of Jackson 5, was shot by Tina Turner. Randy recently made the announcement unexpectedly via Twitter. His tweet read:
“I went to Tina’s house to see my girlfriend. I guess I caught them off guard. Hmmm…. Next question.”
NewsOne reports Randy as saying “that Tina Turner shot him when he walked in on her and his wife in what he alleged was a lesbian encounter in the 1980s.” According to reports from TMZ, “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 made by TMZ to reach a representative for Turner were unsuccessful.
