T.I. and Tiny’s lawyer denied the claims that the couple offered the alleged sexual assault victims a deal.
The attorney who urged prosecutors to launch an investigation against the Hip Hop couple claimed that they tried to strike a deal.
“Steve Sadow reached out to me looking to make a deal on behalf of T.I. and Tiny and I told Steve Sadow my clients want justice,” Blackburn said. “So [if] the deal involves Tiny and T.I. turning themselves in and admitting to the crimes they have committed then fine we got a deal! But if it does not work then I would prefer the investigators do that work and to bring criminal charges against Tiny and T.I. for what they’ve done throughout the years.”
The 11 alleged victims are accusing T.I. and Tiny of “sexual abuse, forced ingestion of illegal narcotics, kidnapping, terrorist threats, and false imprisonment,” Blackburn wrote in his letter.
T.I. and Tiny’s lawyer said Blackburn’s claims that he reached out for a deal is “patently false.” Sadow alleges that he reached out for the alleged victim’s names and evidence because he is certain that if a fair investigation is launched, “no charges will be forthcoming.”
“That is patently false,” he said in a statement. “I reached out to see if he would share any information since his name was posted on Instagram as the attorney for Sabrina Peterson. Blackburn repeatedly refused to provide the names of his accuser-clients or any corroborating or supporting evidence of his groundless claims. The Harrises repeat that they are confident if a thorough and fair investigation is conducted, no charges will be brought.”
Following the wave of allegations, T.I. and Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle has been delayed and it was announced that the rapper will not be returning to the upcoming third installment of Ant-Man, although it’s “unclear” if it’s related.
