Rap star T.I. has doubled down on his denial of some wild claims being made against the rap star and his wife Tiny.
Last week, a former family friend named Sabrina Peterson who claimed T.I. once put a gun to her head, after she became embroiled in a dispute with one of Tiny’s assistants.
Things only got worse, when former “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle” cast member Shekinah Anderson claimed Peterson was having consensual sex with both of the Harrises.
She also claimed Peterson was involved in recruiting women for threesomes and foursomes with T.I. and Tiny.
“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 couple said in a joint statement. “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.”
Then, Sabrina Peterson started posting statements from unidentified women who were contacting her through direct messages on Instagram.
The posts, which have not been substantiated, include allegations of sexual abuse, illicit drug use, and other sensational claims.
Over the weeknd, Peterson posted results of what she claimed was a lie detector test, to prove she was telling the truth about the gun incident, and other allegations.
The latest round of allegations from Peterson’s Instagram account are so salacious – and serious – that T.I. had to issue a second statement to address Sabrina Peterson’s claims.
Read T.I.’s full statement below:
Hey, so as yall can probably guess, or imagine it’s been extremely difficult for me to remain quiet in light of all the things that have transpired. And all of the egregious allegations that’s been tossed around about me and my wife. But there’s a reason for that. And I don’t mind sharing it.
You see if a person does not have any right to criminally or civilly have you in court, they have no right, the best thing they could do is get you for defamation. A defamation suit. Drag you in court, make you pay they legal bill, but get you in court.
I mean, at this point man this is the point where that don’t even matter. Okay. But that’s the motive. That’s the strategy. That’s the intention, Say a whole bunch of false stuff about you that get people to believe and make them come out and say, “they’re a liar, they’re a liar, they’re a liar.” And then, they can say “see they called me a liar, it’s defamation.” Then they drag you in court get you under oath and all that.
Because unfortunately, right now, it doesn’t matter as much what they can prove you did. It matters what you can prove you didn’t. You know, what I mean? And that’s just an unfortunate place that our society has made it to. But I want to be clear about one thing.
Women who have been victimized deserve to be heard. Women, black women, in particular, should be supported, protected, defended, and uplifted.
However, evil has no gender. People with evil intentions have no gender. A threat comes in all shapes and sizes. I would never, I mean, I would never, treat a woman the same way I would treat a threat. All right. So I think that has to be distinguished.
First and foremost, I want to say, my wife? 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 this. She don’t deserve this.
Now, what we’re not gonna do, is open up the door to my bedroom, as you shouldn’t have to either. Open the door to my bedroom for everybody to come in and chime in and make their opinions about what we do and don’t do it should or shouldn’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, we never drugged nobody against they will, we never held nobody against they will, we never made nobody do anything. We ain’t never trafficked anything. Well, sexually trafficked anything. I ain’t never raped nobody, never raped nobody. Also, I’m gonna tell you what’s factual.
There have been fake stories put up that blog sites anonymously sent to this person. Blog sites anonymous sent fake stories to this person and the person posted it as though it was a victim, that they were sure that was a victim and it had been victimized. And what does what this does, is it dismantles the mechanism that women have created for themselves. You can’t weaponize something with baseless claims.
These are not stories of actual events. They not. And I have proof of that. And that’s why I said it. I have proof of that. I have proof of people who have gone on live with this person and they later said “man I just wanted some clout. I can’t believe they actually posted the s###, I just wanted some clout.”
So this it what we dealing with man. This is what we’re dealing with. Also, I pose you a question. How you gonna be a victim and an attacker at the same time? How you been victimized if you are violently attacking someone?
Women who have been victimized deserve to be heard. They deserve to feel comfortable, confident. They deserve to feel supported. And that’s supposed to get them to a place where they can show they face and say “this is what happened to me, this is who did it,” so the necessary steps can follow.
This is not that. This is not that.
Also, I want you to know its evil at play. I’m talking about evil, I’m talking about, you know, evil. And there’s been a history, we’ve had a history in dealing with the particular individual in question. We had a history of it man, had a history of it. And there is a record of pattern behavior like this. A record, a history of harassment.
Listen, this is not my opinion. I’m just saying what’s on record. A history of violence, on record. And we can’t just, you know, weaponize social media to take down people who have families and who communities depend on, you know what I’m saying? I’m talking about who have done everything that they can to uplift and help to evolve our communities. We can’t tear our people down like that.
And this has taught me a lot. Its taught me a lot.
But one thing I know man, I will not be bullied. I am not afraid. I am not ashamed. And the truth will be revealed, man. But until then man, hey, listen, man, any woman out there who’s going through things who have gone through things, you have a story, you should come forward. But don’t lie cause that tears the whole vehicle down.
Don’t lie, don’t lie. The truth is what needs to be heard. The truth. And I can deal with the truth all day. But at some point, man, there has to be something that happens if you come and make baseless claims that are false about somebody, that have a negative impact on them, they livelihood, or they freedom. Something got to be done about that.
But I was built for this, I was born to be in the position. I was born to be in the position, to face pressure and sit in the fire. So it benefits others in the future. I was born to be in this position. God put me here for this. So whatever evil has been conjured up to come against me? No weapon formed, no weapon formed against me shall prosper.
Look man I got a lot of love for everybody who been calling me and who been in support and my wife. S### man, we’ll be back doing us man, sooner than later. You dig what I’m saying? Love and respect.
