T.I. and Tiny are speaking out after being accused of sexual abuse.
Multiple women came forward this week, claiming the rapper and his wife sexually assaulted them. Sabrina Peterson, a former friend of the family, shared messages she received from over 15 women describing their alleged sexual encounters with the couple, which involved drugs in many instances.
In their statement, T.I. and Tiny called the allegations “egregiously appalling” and “emphatically deny” any wrongdoing.
“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 statement reads.
They also questioned Peterson’s credibility and threatened legal action. “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.”
Peterson previously accused T.I. of holding a gun to her head following a physical altercation with his assistant. Tiny was quick to defend her husband against the claims. “Stop Harassing My Family. You strange. Everybody know you been special,” Tiny wrote on Instagram. “Please get help but LEAVE US ALONE.”
Peterson shared the alleged victims’ stories in screenshots posted on her Instagram page and announced plans to pursue “civil legal action.” She has since responded to T.I. and Tiny’s statement, saying she is willing to take a lie detector test.
