In a series of tweets, Randy Jackson shares to his followers about the incident that happened in the eighties when he came to the 'Proud Mary' hitmaker's house to see his girlfriend.

Randy Jackson of the Jackson 5 doesn't hold a grudge against veteran singer for literally pulling the trigger on him. The younger brother of the late King of Pop, , made a shocking revelation on Twitter last Saturday, July 2 in a series of tweets as a response to a follower's question about the incident.

The 49-year-old first tweeted, "This is something many of u probably don't know..." He followed it up with a tweet that read, "Yes, Tina Turner shot me. I have the scar to prove it," and another one in which he assured, "Having said that, there was no violence on my part, nor have I ever owned or carried a weapon."

Uncovering more details about the past incident, Randy went on to tweet, "I went to Tina's house to see my girlfriend. I guess I caught them off guard." The youngest of the Jackson brothers additionally noted that it happened "in the eighties", and he was already over it as writing "And I don't hold a grudge against Tina, she's a great artist an asset to our industry."

Tina's former assistant Eddy Hampton Armani has written about the incident in his 1998 book, "The Real T: My 22 Years with Tina Turner". He said in the book that the "Proud Mary" fired a shot through the ceiling and another one through the doorway before Randy leaped through a broken window. Neither Tina nor Randy has confirmed the story in the past.
