Rapper T.I. has posted an eight-minute-long clip denying the sexual abuse allegations against him and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, regarding them as “false” and “baseless.”
“No weapon formed against us shall prosper. We vehemently deny ALL these disgusting, anonymous allegations,” he captioned the video posted on his social media channels.
In the video, he went on to deny the sexual trafficking claims made by multiple women, “What we not going to do is open up the door to my bedroom,” he shared. “Whatever we ever have done, has been done with consensual adults who into what we into and like what we like. If we want something, we know exactly where to go get it. We’ve never forced anybody, we’ve never drugged anybody against their will, we’ve never held anybody against their will. We’ve never made anybody do anything. We never sexually trafficked anything.”
“Women who have been victimized deserve to be heard. Black women, in particular, should be supported, protected, defended, and uplifted,” he says. “However, evil has no gender. People with evil intentions have no gender. A threat comes in all shapes and sizes. I would never treat a woman the same way I would treat a threat.”
This comes after a woman, Sabrina Peterson posted screenshots from more than a dozen anonymous women who accused the rapper and his wife of sexual abuse.
Before posting the video, a rep for him and his wife released a statement denying the accusation, take a look below.
“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, and if these allegations don’t end, they will take appropriate legal action.”[Via]
