Romeo from the 1990s R&B group Immature was known for wearing an eye patch. And according to him, R&B singer Brandy Norwood was the one who blinded him.

The entire Immature group went on Nicki Cannon's new podcast, and they spilled the tea on the "Brandy Blinding" incident.

Romeo explained to Nick, "It's true Brandy blinded me."

He continued, "[Brandy] and Half Pint got into [an argument]. And she had a book in her hand and tossed it back, not thinking anyone was that close."

The singer added, "She cut my retina - detached it - [and] the lens to my eye fell out."

Here's the audio of Romeo explaining his injury:
