T.I. & Tiny’s Reality Show Suspended Over Sex Abuse Claims As Power Lawyer Lisa Bloom Reps Alleged Victim

T.I. Tiny Harris

The rap star’s franchise “T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle” has been halted as the couple deals with allegations of sexual abuse from scores of victims. 

The T.I. and Tiny sex cult allegations have just taken an interesting turn. 

Right when you thought that the “Whatever You Want” rapper’s word would be the final say on the sex trafficking and abuse allegations that came up against him and his wife Tiny, Lisa Bloom has slithered into the picture. 

The celebrity lawyer, known for bringing down big stars for big paydays, went to her Instagram to announce that she will be taking over as legal counsel for an unnamed “victim.”

She captioned the following, “Investigating T.I. on behalf of our new client. We stand with her. If you have information about T.I. please contact me via my law firm website, TheBloomFirm.com, or DM me. Free and confidential. Help us get to the truth.”

 “I have said this for a long time: the music industry is long overdue for a reckoning on how women, especially Black women, are demeaned and abused,” Lisa Bloom continued. “Enough is enough.”

Lisa Bloom is not the only notable support system stepping out for the “Black survivors” alleging abuse.

The #MeToo movement, Time’s Up, and the National Women’s Law Center have banded together to release a statement.

“Over the last week, we know countless of you have come forward with credible accusations of horrific sexual abuse and violence at the hands of Black celebrities – including Soulja Boy and T.I. and Tiny,” the letter says.

“R&B singer Raz B has spoken out once again about his experience of sexual abuse – yet no media outlets, corporate actors, or systems of justice have centered survivors’ stories or promised accountability. Like you, we are carrying the emotional weight of this news and know that we are reliving a collective trauma akin to the exposing of Cosby and R. Kelly.” 

“Over the next few days, we know your stories and the experiences of Black survivors may be dismissed,” it continues.

“We know people will try to discredit and scrutinize you. We know people will evaluate your stories by a set of questions that shift responsibility from the accuser to the accused: “What were they wearing? What do they do for a living? What is the social status of the abuser?” And we know that when the alleged abusers are not only famous but held up as pillars in the Black community, the tendency will be to sweep these allegations under the rug.”

“This tendency to ignore, mock, challenge, and discredit the stories of Black survivors is an attempt to coerce us into silence and, this too, is an act of violence,” the statement asserts. “This silencing of our stories leaves us unprotected. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, 1 in 5 Black women are survivors of rape. The reverberating impact of silence and trauma spans across generations.”

The backlash has been swift. Deadline has reported that the production of “T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle” has been suspended because of the allegations.

“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,” an MTV Entertainment rep, noted in a prepared statement to the press outlet.

“Given the serious nature of the allegations, we have decided to suspend production in order to gather more information.”

The Harris team has issued another statement, holding their head against the former friend’s allegations.

“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 Harris’ 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.”
