T.I and Tiny Harris legals woes are starting to escalate as someone has now stepped up to support their accusers and help bring charges against the reality tv stars. Attorney Tyrone Blackburn is wasting no time looking for justice for the 11 people claiming to have been assaulted by the Atlanta based couple. In an interview today with CBS 46, he elaborated on the victims.
8 women have come forward with eerily similar claims. The other three accusers include a young man that was eight years old, his mother, as well as Sabrina Peterson, their former friend and the starting point of all this madness.
He said the women claim to have been mistreated by the couple, with several incidents dating back decades and happening in the Atlanta area. He also claims T.I and Tiny’s lawyer reach out looking for a way to settle things before they went to court.
“Steve Sadow reached out to me looking to make a deal on behalf of T.I. and Tiny and I told Steve Sadow my clients want justice,” Blackburn said. “So [if] the deal involves Tiny and T.I. turning themselves in and admitting to the crimes they have committed then fine we got a deal! But if it does not work then I would prefer the investigators do that work and to bring criminal charges against Tiny and T.I. for what they’ve done throughout the years,” Blackburn continued in a press interview.
Steve has not confirmed this conversation. However, he did release a statement of his own letting people know that T.I and Tiny are the actual victims in this case, and that these accusers are just people looking to cash in on a “obvious attempt to manipulate the press and misuse the justice system.”
His full statement: “Clifford (T.I.) and Tameka Tiny Harris deny in the strongest possible terms these unsubstantiated and baseless allegations. 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.”
He continued: “I understand that at a virtual press conference today, attorney Blackburn claimed the Harrises reached out to him through me to supposedly make a deal. That is patently false. I reached out to see if he would share any information since his name was posted on Instagram as the attorney for Sabrina Peterson. Blackburn repeatedly refused to provide the names of his accuser-clients or any corroborating or supporting evidence of his groundless claims. The Harrises repeat that they are confident if a thorough and fair investigation is conducted, no charges will be brought.”
Blackburn is pursing charges in Atlanta and California.
