Over the weekend, T.I. and Tiny began trending when a woman named Sabrina Peterson accused T.I. of threatening her at gunpoint. Tiny stepped in to defend her husband and the accusations started to spiral by that point.
Peterson was once a family friend to the couple and her account took place in 2007, according to her. Her sharing this story publicly enticed other woman to not only come forward with accounts of violent behavior, but also accounts of sexual coercion, abuse, and misconduct from both T.I. and Tiny.
Sabrina shared 15 plus stories in the form of screenshots of women saying they were drugged and coerced into sexual activities with the couple; most sharing anonymously. Both, T.I. and Tiny fired back with what seems to be contradictory evidence.
Tiny shared old posts from Sabrina glorifying T.I. in a photo with her children, referring to the Atlanta rapper as their uncle.
"He was just uncle 2 years ago... now when did you say my husband assaulted you? Did you change you mind or change it back?..." said Tiny, among other things.
T.I. shared screenshots of women admitting that they were lying about their accounts with the couple and that Sabrina was posting fake victims.
T.I. also shared a video of himself discussing the issue in which he shares that Sabrina's accusations are false and that his wife doesn't deserve this backlash. He also mentions that despite his opposition to the accusations held against him and his wife, that "...women who are victimized deserve to be heard...but evil has no gender."
He mentions an interesting point which may be the root of some of these accounts. He says how he isn't fond of opening up his bedroom to the world in order to prove his case, because what he and his wife likes is their business but they would never drug or force anyone into anything.
This aids in the initial story of Tiny's friend, Shekinah Jo who originally went on Instagram live to say Sabrina was lying about being harassed by T.I. and mentions that she in fact, used to be a sexual partner of the couple and "recruit" other women to do so.
Shekinah has since went back on Instagram live changing her story a bit; now claiming not to know the extent of the relationship between Sabrina and the couple.
The couple put out an official statement denying the allegations and Sabrina has responded with a lie detector test.
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 Harrises have had difficulty with this woman for well over a decade. They are taking this matter very seriously, and if these allegations don't end, they will take appropriate legal action.
She posted herself taking a polygraph test to address whether or not T.I. ever held a gun to her head to threaten her and she posted the results which seem to allude that she was telling the truth. She now urges the couple to take one, but it looks as though if these accusations persist, the law will be involved.
