Are T.I. and Tiny sexual predators? See all the allegations against the couple
It has been confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter that rapper & actor Clifford Harris, better known to many as T.I., will not be reprising his role in the MCU’s anticipated Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the third film in the Ant-Man trilogy. Could the recent allegations of abuse surrounding the rapper & his wife be the cause of this?
This news comes after the rapper along with his wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris were recently accused of a number of criminal charges, including assault, kidnapping, sexual harassment, and much more. While all of the allegations have been denied by T.I. and his defense team, it’s clear this lingering drama may be negatively having an impact on his career.
T.I. appeared in the first two Ant-Man films, which saw him as one of Scott Lang’s (Paul Rudd) ex-convict friends, led by the fan-favorite Luis (Michael Pena). We’re still unclear whether or not T.I. was ever meant to be in the new Ant-Man film, but what is clear is that these allegations are frightening if proven true. Let’s delve into the full story involving T.I. & Tiny.
It ain’t pretty, folks
Earlier in January 2021, Sabrina Peterson, an old friend of the couple, went on her social media and accused T.I. of putting a gun to her head – in front of children no less. Tiny, who’s been married to T.I. for over a decade now, took to her social media in an attempt to defend her husband, saying “stop harassing my family. You strange . . . please get help. But LEAVE US ALONE!”
The plot was thickening even then, and while many had hoped that cooler heads would prevail, the allegations of T.I.’s behavior would go on to be even stronger in the weeks to follow.
Last month, Peterson posted a variety of stories on Instagram sharing excerpts she had received from numerous women, seemingly supporting Peterson’s allegations. Peterson shared a long post, disclosing how “you never heal from the things you don’t reveal” on her Instagram feed.
As well, Peterson posted: “To my women that are speaking & mentally sorting your experiences! I know it’s a lot to process, I’m looking for a therapist for all victims now.” The post featured a photo of herself, blinged out in an evening dress with a blue spotlight placed on her face.
This comes on the heels of Peterson reporting that the T.I. and Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle stars had been responsible for the sexual assault of multiple women, and while all the facts are not yet made available to the public, it’s clear someone is in the wrong here. There are simply not enough details yet to determine who’s telling the truth and who’s not.
Attorney Tyrone A. Blackburn has officially sent a letter to the attorneys in both California & Georgia, pleading for them to investigate a variety of claims from different women and one man who claimed T.I. & Tiny “forced drugged, intimidated, kidnapped, and raped” them sometime between 2005-2018.
Blackburn said the following in his letters: “These women are unaware of each other, and without any leading on my part, they recount eerily similar events of sexual abuse, forced ingestion of illegal narcotics, kidnapping, terroristic threats, and false imprisonment.”
T.I’s defense team makes a statement
An attorney for both T.I. & Tiny addressed these new allegations following those of Sabrina Peterson, stating that the couple “deny in the strongest possible terms these baseless and unjustified allegations.”
Their attorney Sadow added the following: “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.”
