The year has definitely started off on a sour note for T.I. who in the space of a week has been accused by Atlanta entrepreneur Sabrina Peterson of holding a gun to her head in front of her kids and heavily criticized for playing a character with vitiligo in the RZA directed Netflix movie “Cut Throat City.”
The Atlanta-based rapper and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris are once again in the news for all the wrong reasons.
So far, at least 15 women have accused U.S. rapper and his wife of drugging and sex trafficking them.
These women came out after T.I. was called out by Sabrina Peterson who claims T.I. put a gun to her head in front of children.
On Thursday, January 28, Sabrina posted on her Instagram Story messages which she received from the alleged abuse victims.
The women also went on Instagram Live with Sabrina Peterson to share their extremely detailed and shocking stories about alllegedly being drugged and abused by either the Harris’ or associates of their’s, with the ”couple’s knowledge.”
In the screenshots shared by Peterson, different women have claimed T.I. refers to women as “cattle. They also claimed Tiny is the “ringleader, a worse abuser than Tip (T.I.).”
The women also claim to have seen Tiny consume cocaine and molly. They said she forced them and her own friends to consume drugs before entering their home.
One person detailed an alleged incident that took place during CIAA in Charlotte in 2016. She said her phone was confiscated when she went to T.I. and Tiny’s hotel suite at the Ritz-Carlton. Molly and cocaine were reportedly handed out at the party and only guests who removed their pants were allowed to stay.
“I watched him drag girls back and forth from the bedroom, to the bathroom, to the living room,” she wrote. “One girl was crying because she wanted to leave but they refused to give her her phone to call an Uber.”
The woman, who said she was excused from the activities because she knew someone in T.I.’s entourage, added that she witnessed the rapper tell his security to come “pick this b***h up off the bed” because she couldn’t walk. The alleged victim was “almost unconscious” and her pulse was “barely there,” according to the witness.
Based on her own experience, the anonymous source described T.I. as an “absolute monster who uses money and power to manipulate people and Tiny is his secret weapon.”
Another woman said she was working as an escort/stripper in 2013 when T.I. invited her to take drugs and have sex with him and Tiny in return for payment. But then Tiny got jealous of her and hit her, before T.I. “choked” her out. When she threatened to reveal their treatment to her, she was allegedly told that she could face deportation. “I was threatened to the point I was in fear I left Atlanta and never looked back,” so the woman told Sabrina.
Another alleged victim, who claimed she was a minor when the abuse happened, said she and her friend were “pressured for sex” during 2005 NBA All-Star Weekend in Colorado. Another woman said the “girls were so high it seemed like they were dead.”
Among the accusers is a woman who claims her neighbor’s door was kicked in by the couple, after which they allegedly beat and kidnapped the husband. One said she was just 16 when her abuse happened. All of the women claim in their stories that they’ve each been traumatized by the couple and all are seeking justice.
T.I. has not yet responded to any of the claims.
