The story, according to ‘Hollywood’,goes like this…
I1998, Tina Turner’s former assistant, Eddy Hampton Armani, published his book (“The Real T: My 22 Years With Tina Turner”) and, in it, revealed that the rumor was true. According to Eddy, the incident started over a woman named Bernadette Robi . Bernadette was the ex-wife of NFL legend Lynn Swann and is the current wife of boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard. At the time, however, Bernadette was the girlfriend of Randy Jackson and, according to Eddy, experiencing a lot of turmoil from that relationship. Apparently Randy was very controlling of Bernadette and forcing her to do things she didn’t want to do — things Eddy claimed were too horrific and shocking to mention in his book. But according to Eddy, Bernadette started confiding in Tina and this drove Randy crazy with jealousy. One night while Bernadette was at Tina’s house, Randy showed up and demanded to see her. When Tina refused to let him in, Randy went into a rage and tossed a huge flower pot through the glass doors of Tina’s house. As Randy entered the house without permission, Tina sprang into action by grabbing her gun and firing at him. Terrified, Randy ran for his life and this is when, according to rumors, he got shot in the ass. Years would go by without Tina or Randy commenting on the incident, but then in 2011, Randy finally confirmed — via Twitter — that the rumor was true, although the legendary Jackson member wouldn’t say if the gunshot wound was in the ass or not.
Randy confirmed the story but insists that he did not mistreat Bernadette or use violence against her.
