Atlanta rap superstar T.I. and his wife, R&B singer/songwriter Tiny Harris, have vehemently denied recent allegations made against them of sexual abuse. However, their denials did not stop MTV Entertainment from suspending production of the couple’s reality TV show, “T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle.”
Production Suspended On T.I. + Tiny’s Show
Beauty entrepreneur Sabrina Peterson, a former friend of the Harrises, recently accused T.I. of holding a gun to her head. Then on social media, she posted a series of messages she received from women accusing T.I. and Tiny of abusing, drugging, coercing and trafficking them for sexual purposes. While the situation is sorted out, T.I. and Tiny’s reality show has been put on pause.
“We are aware of the allegations, and while they are not connected to our show, we have reached out to T.I. and Tameka Harris, as well as local and state officials. Given the serious nature of the allegations, we have decided to suspend production in order to gather more information.” (MTV Entertainment)
T.I. Says ‘I Ain’t Never Raped Nobody’
Tip is having his name dragged through the mud. He posted an eight-minute video on Instagram addressing the allegations, in which he never mentions Peterson.
“First and foremost, I want to say my wife is a beautiful person with an amazing spirit and a kind heart. She’s a devoted mother and she has a humble soul. She don’t deserve any of this. She don’t deserve this. Now what we not going to do is open up the bedroom to my bedroom, as you shouldn’t have to either, open up the bedroom to my bedroom for everyone to come in and chime in and give their opinions about what we do and don’t do – but I will say this. Whatever we ever have done has been done with consensual adults who into what we into and like what we like. If we want something, we know exactly where to go to get it. We ain’t never forced nobody, drug nobody against their will, held nobody against their will, we ain’t never made nobody do anything. We ain’t never traffic anything. Well, sexually traffic anything. I ain’t never raped nobody. Never raped nobody.”
T.I. + Tiny’s Joint Statement
T.I. and Tiny also released a statement to the media — which does bring up Peterson by name — calling the accusations “egregiously appalling.”
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.
Tiny Takes Subliminal Digs At Accuser
Tiny is going into attack mode. The Grammy-winning songwriter’s target is the former friend who accused her husband, rap superstar T.I., of threatening her life.
