Just like a wrecking ball tumbling downhill, the pressure on music industry veteran, T.I., and his famous wife, Tiny, over sexual abuse allegations is finally starting to crash through the thin glass of their carefully built, opulent hip hop Atlanta life.
TMZ is reporting MTV has decided to stop production on the couple’s hit reality show, T.I. & TINY: Friends & Family Hustle.” Citing the recent allegations from several women that have come forward in the last few weeks, MTV said…
“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.” They continued… “Given the serious nature of the allegations, we have decided to suspend production in order to gather more information.”
If you haven’t been following, a woman named Sabrina Peterson recently came out with a story alleging T.I. and Tiny have a history of drugging young women and coercing them into sex with them both. Since then, Peterson has been joined by several other women.
In an effort to defend himself, the “Dope Boyz” rapper came out a few days ago to deny the charges on camera. However, it seems he actually admitted he and his wife did perhaps have group sexual encounters with what he said were consenting individuals – thus confirming at least some of Ms. Peterson’s allegations.
No criminal charges have been filed yet, but we’re hearing celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom is now involved with the situation.
It appears grabbing the mic that day might have been a strategic mistake by the rapper. We’ll bring you more details as soon as they become available. Until the next time it drips….
