T.I. and Tiny’s year got off to an extremely rocky start with accusations against the couple, but it seems that there me finally be some light at the end of the grim tunnel. The Harrises have been embroiled in an online battle with former friend Sabrina Peterson after she brought forth damning accusations involving the rapper.
Amid the heated drama, a spokesperson for the couple shared via Complex that the accusations were “egregiously appalling” as they extremely denied them. “Mr. and Mrs. Harris want to be on record and more importantly want the public to know they emphatically deny in the strongest way possible the egregiously appalling allegations being made against them by Sabrina Peterson,” the statement read. “The Harrises have had difficulty with this woman for well over a decade. They are taking this matter very seriously.”
Things got more interesting once Peterson started to bring up accounts from more women. As the allegations continued to pile higher and higher, Lisa Bloom inserted herself into the mix by announcing that she would be representing one of the women. “Good Lord. So many accusers,” Bloom tweeted, also acknowledging she now represents one of them.”
Bloom later tweeted that others have reached out to her after she revealed she would be representing one of the individuals. “Multiple women have reached out to me, and so far we represent one. TI and Tiny say the woman are liars. Really?” she tweeted.
Due to Peterson’s allegations, production on T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle was officially suspended ahead of its spring premiere. “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,” a statement from MTV Entertainment read. “Given the serious nature of the allegations, we have decided to suspend production in order to gather more information.”
While Peterson has shared numerous accounts, it is to be noted that no official lawsuits have been filed or investigations made. A source has confirmed to The Jasmine Brand that the couple “is not currently under investigation and no lawsuits have been filed.”
Aside from their statement and initial defense of themselves on social media, the Harris couple has kept quiet on the situation in recent weeks. However, social media has offered their opinions on the matter for them. One user’s comment though did seem to bring out a significant reaction from Tameka “Tiny” Harris.
”Lisa Bloom probably dropped them as a client for lack of evidence. No one cares about the truth when the lie is more entertaining. These people are innocent. Freaks, yes. But clearly innocent,” they wrote. Tiny then responded with three of the “double exclamation” emojis signifying her agreeance.
