A lawyer has called for an investigation into TI and his wife Tiny. Lawyer Tyrone A Blackburn wants authorities to start a probe into the popular US rapper and his wife after 11 women claimed that they were drugged or sexually assaulted by the celebrity couple.
Blackburn has reportedly sent a letter to the prosecution claiming that the musician and his bae committed a number of criminal offences, including "sexual abuse, forced ingestion of illegal narcotics, kidnapping, terroristic threats and false imprisonment".
Blackburn said he sent letters to different attorneys' offices across America, including the US Attorneys for the Northern District of Georgia and the Central District of California, the Los Angeles County District Attorney and the state’s attorney general.
Complex reports that although Blackburn has received notices of delivery, no formal investigation has been launched yet.
TI took to social media a few weeks back and denied the allegations on behalf of himself and his wife. He posted a video on Instagram where he shared his side of the story. TI captioned the clip:
"No weapon formed against us shall prosper. We vehemently deny ALL these disgusting, anonymous allegations."
TI's peers in the entertainment industry and his fans took to his comment section to share their thoughts about the allegations. Check out some of the comments below:
"The truth will prevail!!!"
"That’s right. Check the paperwork."
"We with y’all."
"This brotha right here is SOLID as a ROCK!!!!"
"He’s right about one thing for sure, something has to be done about people being able to say whatever they want, true or false, and it tears down someone else’s entire life BEFORE ever being proven."
"My thing is why are all of the accusers anonymous?"
"Time to close them bedroom doors and keep that marital bed tight. Not worth these problems."
