Rapper T.I. and his wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris are denouncing allegations against them after three more accusers have come forward with abuse claims against the couple.

Attorney Tyrone Blackburn, who is already representing 11 other accusers, has retained three more accusers seeking a criminal investigation into T.I. (real name Clifford Joseph Harris Jr.), Tameka “Tiny” Harris, and their associates, a representative for the lawyer confirmed.

The latest claims include drugging, sex trafficking, and rape. None of the accusers has shared their names.

Steve Sadow, counsel for the couple, called the new allegations “scurrilous” in a statement asking for the accusers “to reveal themselves publicly.”

“By hiding behind anonymous allegations, the unnamed accusers effectively render themselves not credible and unworthy of belief. We say: Stop trying to manipulate the press and misuse the justice system, and let the light shine on their identities so we can go about disproving these scurrilous accusations.”

 

One of the most jarring claims comes from a woman who details an encounter with the couple in Miami when she was 20 years old. She says that T.I. forced her to swallow a pill and to take a powdered substance, which drugged her. She alleges Tiny then proceeded to engage in sexual intercourse and she could not consent.

Another woman, also 20 at the time, claims she was drugged and raped by T.I. and one of his male friends, again in Miami, in May of 2010. Blackburn says he has received medical records for the victim.

The third accuser says she was sex trafficked in Nevada, California, and Florida by the couple.
