Rapper T.I. & his wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris are denouncing allegations against them after 3 more accusers have come forward with abuse claims against the couple.
Attorney Tyrone Blackburn, who is already representing 11 other accusers, has retained 3 more accusers seeking a criminal investigation into T.I. (real name Clifford Joseph Harris Jr.), Tiny & their associates.
The latest claims include drugging, sex trafficking & rape. None of the accusers has shared their names.
Steve Sadow, counsel for the couple, called the new allegations "scurrilous," asking for the accusers "to reveal themselves publicly."
One of the most jarring claims comes from a woman who details an encounter with the couple in Miami when she was 20 years old. She says that T.I. forced her to swallow a pill & to take a powdered substance, which drugged her. She alleges Tiny then proceeded to engage in sexual intercourse & she could not consent.
Another woman, also 20 at the time, claims she was drugged & raped by T.I. & 1 of his male friends, again in Miami, in May of 2010. Blackburn says he has received medical records for the victim.
The third accuser says she was sex trafficked in Nevada, California & Florida by the couple.
T.I. & Tiny denied those allegations through Sadow.
"Clifford & Tameka Harris deny in the strongest possible terms these unsubstantiated & baseless allegations," he said. "We are confident that if these claims are thoroughly and fairly investigated, no charges will be forthcoming. These allegations are nothing more than the continuation of a sordid shakedown campaign that began on social media. The Harrises implore everyone not to be taken in by these obvious attempts to manipulate the press & misuse the justice system.”
