T.I. & Tiny accused of abusing, assaulting & kidnapping women for years

The last time we discussed anything having to do with rapper/actor T.I., it was in 2019. That was about the abhorrent, vile stories – from T.I.’s own mouth – about how he took his then-teenage daughter to the gynecologist every year to check to make sure his daughter was still a virgin. It was profoundly disgusting and I never wanted to cover anything having to do with T.I. again. Well, guess what? That sh-t was just the tip of the iceberg. Allegedly, T.I. and his wife Tiny (Tameka Harris) have been preying on and abusing women for a very long time?

A lawyer seeking criminal charges in a couple of states against rapper T.I. and his wife, Tiny, for alleged sexual abuse and assault against several women, detailed some of the allegations in a media video conference Monday morning. Attorney Tyrone A. Blackburn told reporters he requested authorities in California and Georgia open investigations on behalf of 11 total alleged victims of the couple (real names Clifford Joseph Harris Jr. and Tameka Dianne Harris). The alleged incidents span 2005 to 2018.

The allegations, as outlined by Blackburn, include sexual abuse, forced ingestion of illegal narcotics, kidnapping, false imprisonment, intimidation, assault and harassment. Calling the allegations “methodical, sadistic abuse,” Blackburn shared some of the (unnamed) victims’ graphic accusations, most of which revolved around being drugged and then sexually assaulted.

“They all have various reasons why they took so long to come out,” Blackburn said of the timeline. “One of the reasons is that they did not think anyone would believe them.”

There are several famous true-crime cases (in America and Europe) where a husband-and-wife partnership abused their victims together and they are always so f–king chilling. The warped psychology, the patterns and levels of abuse, and depravity of a husband-and-wife team egging each other on. Even though many people haven’t been paying close attention to this unfolding story, it looks like the companies working with T.I. and Tiny have started to back away:

T.I. will not be returning for Marvel Studios’ upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. The embattled rapper and actor is not a part of the cast, The Hollywood Reporter has learned, but it’s unclear whether this is related to recent accusations of sexual abuse he is facing alongside his wife, musician Tiny.

On Monday, an attorney representing 11 alleged victims accused the couple of crimes including sexual abuse, forced ingestion of illegal narcotics, kidnapping, false imprisonment, intimidation, assault and harassment. The attorney, Tyrone A. Blackburn, is asking authorities in California and Georgia to open investigations. Through a lawyer, the couple strongly denied the accusations: “Clifford (T.I.) and Tameka Harris (Tiny) 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.”

Elsewhere, VH1 halted production of the reality show T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle last month in light of claims against the couple.

Yeah, I suspect Marvel was like “we’re out.” VH1 exited before Marvel! That’s interesting. But clearly, more stuff is going to come out. It’s going to be like Bill Cosby. Women will begin telling their stories to major outlets and hopefully some charges will start to happen.

    Given his previously shared views that women’s bodies are something he can control and make decisions about this does not come as a great surprise.

    This is why we need to believe women.

  2. Wiglet Watcher says:

    Tiny looks like it was his mom in that pink dress. Oh this will be messy.

    I hope their victims get some cathartic healing from finding their voices in this.

  3. k.tate says:

    What in the fresh he**? There are SO MANY people willing and happy to “party” consentually that they must have some sort of fetish for incapacitating their victims. I read that they fed one victim EIGHT x pills! Depending on the pill, shes lucky to be alive! What is wrong with people?!?! More money and power the bigger the “kinks”? Yuck.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      of course that’s def a big part of it. having the power to do “whatever you want” because the person is incapacitated. just like Cosby.

  4. nicegirl says:

    Yep

  5. lanne says:

    For deyjahs sake I hope this isn’t true. That girl has been through so much. But I believe those women. People like this, like Epstein, choose “bad victims” on purpose because they know the victims won’t be believed. This is ugly. What is WRONG with people?

  6. Renee says:

    I read this story yesterday and could not wrap my head around it. It reminds me of the Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka case in Canada years ago. Absolutely sickening!

    When T.I decided he was in charge of his daughter’s sexuality, I knew he was trash. Since his wife went along with it, she’s trash too. Who are these people? Between Armie Hammer and this sicko, I am thoroughly disgusted.

    • Quincytoo says:

      I’m Canadian and as soon as I started reading this I thought of those two as well

    • Miranda says:

      Were they the couple whose victims included the wife’s own sister? And the wife is now free?

      The choice of “less-believable” victims reminded me of Judith and Alvin Neelley, whose victims were a troubled 13-year-old who was a chronic runaway from the group home where she’d been placed, and a couple who were apparently somewhat mentally disabled (one of whom survived). They had previously unsuccessfully targeted other young teens because Alvin Neelley had a virginity fetish.

    • Golly Gee says:

      Yup. Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo immediately came to mind. The fact that she got off so lightly is a crime.

  7. FeedMeChips says:

    There have been rumors about this for years. Disgusting.

  8. Moo says:

    Chilling. Does this happen more frequently than we realize? I don’t understand why a woman would help drug and sexually assault and torture other women. Ghislaine Maxwell comes to mind.

  9. Erica says:

    I’m also thinking of all the times Tiny tried to leave them and they’d end up back together. Is it because they have blackmail on each other? That sort of evidence could go a long way in putting both of them away.

  10. SM says:

    I don’t know who he is but this is sick, I hope he and his wife are prosecuted and convicted.
