Tiny Harris defends T.I. from allegations that he held Sabrina Peterson at gunpoint
Tiny responded that Peterson was harassing her family
Tameka “Tiny” Harris has come to the defense of her husband T.I. after Sabrina Peterson alleged that the rap superstar held her at gunpoint.
Peterson and Tiny have been friends for years, but it seems the bond may have been broken. She took to Instagram on Tuesday to blast T.I., born Clifford Harris, as a “predator.” She alleged that he pointed a gun at her head while children were in the room and that for years she’s been villainized as he was simultaneously praised.
The Atlanta-based entrepreneur who created The Glam University recounted objecting to Tiny being treated like a “slave” by T.I.’s assistant and was punished for it.
“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.
“AS BLACK WOMEN! It’s hard to heal from RAPE, VIOLENCE OR ANYTHING BECAUSE YOU ARE PAINTED AS THE PROBLEM OR REASON THIS HAS HAPPENED TO YOU! LETS NORMALIZE THE ALLOWING BLACK WOMEN TO HEAL! It’s so hard being the VICTIM OF RAPE & BEING PAINTED AS THE REASON IT HAPPENED!”
Peterson also wanted Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms to disassociate herself with the rapper. In 2018, she appointed him as a member of her transition team and joined him last year during unrest in the city to plead for peace.
“LETS TALK! @keishabottoms YOU CANT HAVE A PERSON THAT HAS VICTIMIZED WOMEN SPEAK FOR US!” she continued. “Lets have a real TALK!”
Tiny responded to the allegations and claimed Peterson was in the wrong and mentioned that her children were calling TIP “uncle” only two years ago. She also insisted that Peterson was harassing her family.
Tiny demanded that Peterson “leave them alone.”
“Hold up… So you want your abuser to train your sons? He was just uncle 2 years ago … now when did you say my husband assaulted you? Did you change your mind or change it back?,” Tiny wrote.
“What’s up wit 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.”
Peterson may have issued a rebuttal to Tiny’s remarks with a cryptic post on Wednesday that did not mention names but addressed those that “know me.” The post read, “Cocaine makes you talk tough.”
