Famed sexual assault attorney Lisa Bloom was hired by Sabrina Petersen, former friend of rapper and reality star T.I. and his wife, Tiny Cottle accusing them both of being sexual predators. This revelation came out a week ago when she and a number of other women accused the couple of drugging and raping women. T.I. and Tiny have since responded to it all in a statement openly and swiftly denouncing these accusations.
“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 Harris’ 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.”
T.I. even went on Instagram Live to address things saying, “It’s been extremely difficult for me to remain quiet in light of all the things that have transpired, and all the egregious allegations being tossed around about me and my wife,” he said. “But there’s a reason for that, and I don’t mind sharing it. You see, if a person does not have any right to criminally or civilly have you in court, the best thing they can do is get you for defamation, Drag you in court, make you pay their legal bills.”
The continued, “These are not stories of actual events, and I have proof of that,” he said. I have proof of people who have gone on live and later say, ‘I just wanted some clout. I can’t believe they actually posted that shit. I just wanted some clout.’ So that’s what we’re dealing with. How are you going to be a victim and an attacker at the same time?”
And following all of this, Bloom has announced on Twitter that she’s now representing these accusers.
Good Lord. So many accusers. https://t.co/Oge2uHCQ2F

Now there’s an interesting point here for those who might not remember which is how familiar this story is. Kandi Burruss was accused of wanting to drug and rape Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star Porsha Williams by Phaedra Parks. Some have said maybe she had her story mixed up or she was attributing this to being guilty by association whereby if T.I. and Tiny did this, then their friend Kandi Burruss did the same. But it is causing us to raise our eyebrows wondering if there was something to what she said.
