Could another scandal be coming to try and derail rapper T.I.’s career, reputation, and freedom? The rapper, real name Clifford Harris, has seen his share of legal troubles throughout his fruitful career. From spending some years on and off in prison to most recently being charged by the SEC for fraudulent involvement in cryptocurrency schemes, trouble seems to follow the rapper.
The latest debacle to hit the Harris household is thanks to Tiny’s once close-friend, Sabrina Peterson. Peterson, who according to Revolt, is the founder of “GirlPower Holdings”, a company described as “a place for women to learn the ins and outs of business”, which she launched in 2019. She’s also served time in locked up in the past but has since also launched “Pretty High”, one of the few cannabis companies owned by a Black woman.
One of her latest posts to Instagram is causing a stir as it possesses some damning allegations directed towards the Atlanta rapper. The caption of her post which at first seemed to try and help Black women deal with various traumas, turned into a confessional that made some damning claims against her personal experience with T.I.
“The sad part about being a woman & BEING A BLACK WOMAN IS THIS! The public PRAISES OUR PREDATORS,” Peterson wrote on Instagram. “[T.I.] you PUT A GUN TO MY HEAD IN FRONT OF CHILDREN & I NEVER CALLED THE POLICE ON YOU! But for years you have painted me as the VILLAIN!”
She added, “AS BLACK WOMEN! It’s hard to heal […] BECAUSE YOU ARE PAINTED AS THE PROBLEM OR REASON THIS HAS HAPPENED TO YOU! LETS NORMALIZE THE ALLOWING BLACK WOMEN TO HEAL! ”
Peterson didn’t stop there but attempted to include Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms in the mix, calling her out for partnering with the rapper on various issues concerning Black women. “YOU CANT HAVE A PERSON THAT HAS VICTIMIZED WOMEN SPEAK FOR US!,” she said addressing Bottoms. When a fan commented under the posting specifically asking if T.I. was the rapper that placed a weapon to her head, Peterson confirms, adding that it was “because I was beating up his female assistant that was treating [Tiny] like a slave.”
T.I. hasn’t addressed the allegations that Peterson has brought up, however, Tiny isn’t remaining silent. Taking to Instagram like her (presumably at this point former) friend, she offers this rebuttal. “Hold up…So you want your abuser to train your sons? He was just uncle 2 years ago,” wrote Tiny in response. “Now when did you say my husband assaulted you? Did you change your mind or change it back? What’s up wit you today Pooh? I’m confused.”
Tiny continued, making it clear that she would not tolerate anything more from Peterson. “Stop Harassing My Family. You strange,” Harris states. “Everybody know you been special (face slicing seminar lady). Please get help. But LEAVE US ALONE!!”
Supporters of the Harris family offered encouragement to them, noting Peterson’s previous behavior as it pertains to them. “I knew something was off about her. People be weird,” commented one user. Another wrote, “That chick is a drama Queen. Looking for a way to get in the blogs. SMH!!!”
In attempts to double down on the claims, however, Peterson shared a story from her DMs by a follower of hers that seemed to agree with her allegations, sharing a similar accusation of her own. “Wow the same man that kicked in my door with his people kidnapped my husband […] 13 years ago while tiny was in the car,” wrote the unidentified user. “I knew he would soon be revealed for who he really is.”
The rapper has yet to respond to these claims. Perhaps since Tiny has already spoken up on behalf of her man, he may just leave it at that. Meanwhile, Peterson is continuing to stand by her initial claims after Tiny’s response to her.
