Lars Niki/Getty Images for BET After 20 years of being together and nine years of marriage, T.I. and Tiny Harris are no strangers to controversy. But we’re not sure how they’ll address these latest allegations.
In a lengthy Instagram post Tuesday, Tiny’s longtime friend and Atlanta-based entrepreneur, Sabrina Peterson, accused T.I. of pointing a gun at her years ago.
“The sad part about being a woman & BEING A BLACK WOMAN IS THIS! The public PRAISES OUR PREDATORS! @troubleman31 you PUT A GUN TO MY HEAD IN FRONT OF CHILDREN & I NEVER CALLED THE POLICE ON YOU! But for years you have painted me as the VILLAIN!” Peterson wrote.
She also called out Atlanta mayor Keyisha Bottoms, who worked with T.I. to condemn the violent Atlanta riots in 2020.
“@keishabottoms YOU CANT HAVE A PERSON THAT HAS VICTIMIZED WOMEN SPEAK FOR US! Lets have a real TALK!” she continued.
In another post, Peterson claimed to have spoken with other women who were also allegedly victimized by T.I.
“I didn’t know how many women he truly hurt & didn’t know what made me finally say something. Nonetheless, I’m blessed that I did,” Peterson continued. “THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING, THIS ISH HAS GOTTEN REALLY REAL.”
As the news spread, The Shade Room captured Tiny’s response to Peterson’s allegations.
“Hold up…So you want your abuser to train your sons? He was just uncle two years ago,” wrote Tiny. “Now when did you say my husband assaulted you? Did you change your mind or change it back? What’s up with you today Pooh? I’m confused. Stop harassing my family. You strange. Everybody know you been special (face slicing seminar lady). Please get help. But leave us alone!”
By Wednesday, Peterson claimed she was anonymously “interviewing” other alleged victims and “moving forward with civil legal action & awareness.”
