T.I. & Tiny Deny Sexual Assault Allegations From Three New Accusers
Lawyer Tyrone A. Blackburn of New York said earlier this month that one of the women claimed T.I. and Tiny made her take drugs before allegedly bringing her to a hotel and having sex with her, which “she could not consent” to. A second woman claims T.I. and one of his male friends drugged her and allegedly raped her in a hotel room. Both alleged incidents took place in 2010. The third woman alleged she was a victim of sex trafficking in Nevada, California, and Florida.
T.I. and Tiny continue to deny the claims. Their lawyer, Steve Sadow, called out the alleged victims for remaining anonymous.
“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.”
Tyrone A. Blackburn has been adamant in his call for the couple to face charges. He also claimed Steve Sadow reached out to him to make a deal, which he didn’t want to agree to. He said last month,
“Steve Sadow reached out to me looking to make a deal on behalf of T.I. and Tiny and I told Steve Sadow my clients want justice.”
“So [if] the deal involves Tiny and T.I. turning themselves in and admitting to the crimes they have committed then fine we got a deal! But if it does not work then I would prefer the investigators do that work and to bring criminal charges against Tiny and T.I. for what they’ve done throughout the years.”
But Steve Sadow denied trying to reach a deal. He responded,
“I understand that at a virtual press conference today, attorney Blackburn claimed the Harrises reached out to him through me to supposedly make a deal. That is patently false. I reached out to see if he would share any information since his name was posted on Instagram as the attorney for Sabrina Peterson. Blackburn repeatedly refused to provide the names of his accuser-clients or any corroborating or supporting evidence of his groundless claims. The Harrises repeat that they are confident if a thorough and fair investigation is conducted, no charges will be brought.”
