UPDATE 4:45 PM EST==========
T.I. and Tiny’s lawyer, Steve Sadow, just issued a statement to TMZ saying the couple…
“deny in the strongest possible terms these unsubstantiated and baseless allegations.” He continued… “These allegations are nothing more than the continuation of a sordid shakedown campaign that began on social media.”
He also said the they “implore everyone not to be taken in by these obvious attempts to manipulate the press and misuse the justice system.”
As predicted by the “Whatever You Like” rapper just a few weeks ago, T.I., aka Clifford Harris Jr, 40, and his longtime wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, 45, are being sued for defamation. TMZ is reporting Sabrina Peterson, a former friend of the couple, has filed documents alleging her reputation has been tarnished.
Unless you’ve been under a rock lately you know Sabrina has spearheaded an effort to out T.I. and Tiny and their alleged practice of sexually abusing young women, with the aid of narcotics. Since Sabrina made her claim earlier this year, several women have actually come forward to say they were drugged and coerced into sex with T.I. and Tiny.
T.I. eventually released an 8-minute rebuttal to the charges saying, “We vehemently deny all these disgusting, anonymous allegations…” It’s still up on his social media page.
Sabrina says since the couple came out denying her claims to their millions of fans and followers, she’s been subject to harrassment and abuse from people who support them. The lawsuit documents also allege her 8-year-old son is in danger because Tiny posted a rebuke of Sabrina’s claims using a picture of the boy with T.I. in happier times.
As of right now, since this story broke, Sabrina Peterson has done a quick whitewash of her social media, presumably for the traffic she will get because of the headlines today. In a quick reset, gone are stories of her drug trafficking days like the one she posted just a few hours ago today, that’s since been deleted.
It was a tale of her attempting to traffic tens of pounds of marijuana into communities. Now the only thing on Sabrina Peterson’s page are messages about uplifting victims and survivors – looks like things are moving fast.
We’ll bring you more details as soon as they become available. Until the next time it drips…
