Lawyer Allegedly Contacted by over 30 Survivors & Witnesses With Abuse Claims against TI & Tiny
Multiple women have come forth to speak out against T.I and Tiny Harris who allegedly abused them, and now a lawyer is looking to open criminal investigations against the duo.
The past few weeks have been a rollercoaster ride for rapper T.I. and his wife, Tameka "Tiny" Harris after several women came out on social media to accuse them of sexual misconduct and abuse.
Now, a lawyer is looking to open criminal investigations against the couple. Attorney Tyrone A. Blackburn claimed he has been contacted by over 30 women who have harrowing stories about the couple.

The women, who have either witnessed or survived T.I. and Tiny's alleged abuse, have accused them of sexual misconduct, intimidation, and kidnapping.
According to a release by Blackburn's office, the allegations spanned over 15 years and the details are eerily consistent. Tiny has been accused of forcing the victims to ingest mind-altering substances.
Blackburn has reportedly done his due diligence to send letters to officials in Georgia and California. The goal is to open investigations under numerous Acts.
The couple's VH1 show "T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle" has been put on hold.
The New York Times previously reported how five women came forth with their stories about being assaulted by the couple and some people around them.
The couple's lawyer Steve Sadow sent a statement to the publication, vehemently denying all the claims and dismissing the allegations as nothing but a way to drag his clients' names through the mud.
"The Harrises implore everyone not to be taken in by these obvious attempts to manipulate the press and misuse the justice system," Sadow said in a statement to Rolling Stone.
The couple's former friend Sabrina Peterson made headlines in February after sharing screenshots of stories by women who claimed the couple had abused them in the past.
Amid the uncertainties and continuation of the matter, the couple's VH1 show "T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle" has been put on hold. They had been shooting the fourth season in Atlanta.
MTV Entertainment spokesperson said they had reached out to T.I. and Tiny as well as the local and state officials about the matter and would suspend the production of the show while they gather more information.
