TSR Updatez: Following reports that a new accuser has come forward making sexual assault allegations against T.I. and Tiny in Los Angeles, an attorney for the couple is responding to reports of a criminal investigation.
The anonymous woman claims the alleged assault went down in 2005 at a hotel room after meeting the couple at a club. The woman reportedly filed a police report and spoke with detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department in April. LAPD officials did confirm with us that there is an open investigation but did not specify any details.
The Daily Beast reported a second woman filed a report with the Las Vegas Police Department for a separate incident. The couple’s attorney is claiming T.I. and Tiny have not been contacted by law enforcement officials for either of these new claims.
“The Harrises have not spoken to or been contacted by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), the Las Vegas Police Department (LVPD) or, indeed, any member of law enforcement from any other jurisdiction in the country,” said the couple’s attorney Steve Sadow in a statement obtained by The Blast.
He continued, “Even assuming the story in the Daily Beast is close to accurate, it appears the LAPD ‘accuser’ has chosen once again to remain anonymous, thereby preventing us from being in a position to disprove or refute her allegations — or even examine them. Meanwhile, although we now appear for the first time to have the name of an ‘accuser’ who supposedly filed a police report with LVPD, we have absolutely zero details about her or her claim.”
Details from the alleged Los Angeles incident included the woman claiming she was taken advantage of after having some of Tiny’s drink.
The woman claims she remembers showering with the couple and participating in a back rub before getting sick and passing out. She alleges she woke up to her private area being sore. The Las Vegas accuser claims she was also drugged with a drink given to her by Tiny.
These two new allegations follow a series of similar allegations made earlier this year. T.I. and Tiny have consistently denied allegations of sexual assault and trafficking, but it has not prevented the couple from experiencing fallout.
Production for their reality series on VH1 has been halted following the allegations.
