T.I. & Tiny Address Sexual Abuse Allegations.
T.I. and Tiny Harris Threaten to Sue over Allegations They Allegedly Drugged Women Before Sex
"It's been extremely difficult for me to remain quiet in light of all the things that have transpired, and all the egregious allegations being tossed around about me and my wife," he said. "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 ... the best thing they can do is get you for defamation ... Drag you in court, make you pay their legal bills."
Tip suggested the people behind the allegations were simply trying to bait him and his family into calling them "liars," which may give them grounds for a civil suit. T.I. said he felt as though the burden of proof was on the accused rather than the accuser, but emphasized that all alleged victims need to be heard.
"He also said" the abuse allegations were doing harm to actual victims, because they were nothing more than baseless claims. He then suggested those who have accused him and his wife were simply trying to gain clout.
"These are not stories of actual events, and I have proof of that," he said. "... I have proof of people who have gone on live ... and later say, 'I just wanted some clout. I can't believe they actually posted that shit. I just wanted some clout.' So that's what we're dealing with ... How are you going to be a victim and an attacker at the same time?"
T.I. and Tiny claimed that they 'have had difficulty' with Sabrina Peterson, who made the accusations public, for more than 10 years. They added that 'if these allegations don't end, they will take appropriate legal action.' Peterson responded to the couple's denial by writing on her Instagram page: 'LETS TAKE A LIE DETECTOR TEST!'
