On Friday (Jan. 29), a rep for the couple told XXL, “Mr. and Mrs. Harris want to be on record and more importantly want the public to know they emphatically deny in the strongest way possible the egregiously appalling allegations being made against them by Sabrina Peterson. The Harrises have had difficulty with this woman for well over a decade. They are taking this matter very seriously, and if these allegations don’t end, they will take appropriate legal action.”nullnull
The joint statement made by
and Tiny comes one day after Sabrina Peterson, an Atlanta-based entrepreneur, reportedly shared the alleged accounts of at least 30 women via social media who have accused the rapper and his wife of sexual abuse and forced drug use. Before this, Peterson claimed via Instagram that the Atlanta rhymer once pulled a firearm on her.
In Peterson’s IG post on Tuesday (Jan. 26), she claimed the rapper put a gun to head in front of children.
“The sad part about being a woman & BEING A BLACK WOMAN IS THIS! The public PRAISES OUR PREDATORS! @troubleman31 you PUT A GUN TO MY HEAD IN FRONT OF CHILDREN & I NEVER CALLED THE POLICE ON YOU! But for years you have painted me as the VILLAIN! AS BLACK WOMEN! It’s hard to heal from RAPE, VIOLENCE OR ANYTHING BECAUSE YOU ARE PAINTED AS THE PROBLEM OR REASON THIS HAS HAPPENED TO YOU! LETS NORMALIZE THE ALLOWING BLACK WOMEN TO HEAL! It’s so hard being the VICTIM OF RAPE & BEING PAINTED AS THE REASON IT HAPPENED!,” Peterson said.
Additional accusations suggesting T.I. and his friends took advantage of girls in drug-induced states of unconsciousness were also mentioned in the social media discussion about T.I. and Tiny.
The identities of the alleged victims were withheld in the social media posts.
“They rapped girls with toys so high they couldn’t keep their heads up I say fucking dead bodied how it seemed bot saying everybody was a victim but they knew young girls were star stuck this make me want to throw up im so proud of u,” one person said via Peterson’s IG Story.
Another post came from an anonymous source claiming her friend had a similar run-in with T.I. and Tiny, in which the unidentified woman was forced to do cocaine and take molly—or Methylenedioxymethamphetamine. She claims they later approached her with sexual advances. “They forced her to do coke, and take molly’s and tried to have a threesome. Tiny would do most of the talking she was very upfront and kind of rude… Something ended up growing wrong and my friend got into it with them and they threatened to kill her if she ever spoke about it,” the social media message says.
At the end of this particular post, the person wrote, “Everybody can’t be telling the same lie,” drawing similarities to the stories told by the numerous individuals.
Claims were also made that Tiny was subjected to abuse at the hands of her husband as well. One person alleged that T.I. forced Tiny to participate in group sex. “There’s times where I partied with him and he’s force Tiny to do a 3some and she’d participate or she’d cry cus she didn’t want to. She often brought girls back to the hotel specifically for him and would sit in the room and be crying while TI fuck other women,” the accusation reads.
While the private dealings in T.I. and Tiny’s life have been publicized in the past, whether it’s over the infidelity in their relationship or their highly disputed parenting methods, this is the first time either of them have been accused of sexual assault.
In October of 2017, over three years prior to these allegations surfacing online, T.I. shared a video of himself on Instagram questioning what happens to the women who lied about being sexually abused. “What the fuck ever happened when the muthafuckas found out the bitch was lying, what consequences was there for this young lady?,” he said in the clip.
