T.I. & Wife Tiny Respond to New Sexual Assault Allegations
T.I. and Tameka “Tiny” Harris are reacting to assault allegations.
The couple issued a statement amid allegations from three more women, accusing them of sexual assault, on Tuesday (April 6).
“The Harrises are still waiting for the accusers to reveal themselves publicly. By continuing to hide behind anonymous allegations, the unnamed accusers effectively render themselves not credible and unworthy of belief. We say: Let the light shine on their identities so we can go about disproving these scurrilous accusations,” their lawyer Steve Sadow said in a statement to Billboard.
The unnamed women are being represented by attorney Tyrone A. Blackburn.
A spokesperson for the lawyer told Page Six that a 20-year-old woman accused the couple of pulling out a pill and forcing her to swallow it at a nightclub in Miami in 2010.
She also claimed she was taken to a South Beach hotel, where the couple’s security took her phone and T.I. “forced her to take a powdered substance from his finger” and “[Tiny] undressed her and proceeded to engage in sexual intercourse. She said her body was numb, the room was slowing down, and she could not consent.”
An additional two women came forward last week with similar accusations.
One victim claimed she was “drugged, forced to take tons of molly and X, and sex-trafficked in three states,” and a second said she was “drugged, then raped by Clifford Harris and one of his male friends in a hotel in Miami, Florida, in May of 2010.”
The couple has continued to dismiss all of the allegations of sexual abuse, drugging, and sex trafficking. Claims first came against the couple back in January, which they denied.
