A news site has apologized after publishing a report from the medical examiner which has determined that T.I's sister, Precious Harris died from cocaine toxicity.
According to TMZ, the 66-year-old Harris had cocaine in her system which caused high blood pressure and then triggered an abnormal heart rhythm. Precious was already suffering from several other ailments including chronic lung disease, kidney disease, and diabetes.
But shortly after, the breaking news outlet issued an apology to T.I. and his family:
"Earlier Thursday, we posted a story about T.I.'s sister, Precious Harris Chapman, and reported the Medical Examiner's official findings on her cause of death ... we were wrong to do it. T.I. and his family are hurt and furious, and they have a point," the open letter reads.
"Precious worked alongside her brother in Atlanta for more than 10 years on philanthropic and humanitarian initiatives, including the annual Senior Thanksgiving, where they feed more than 7,000 seniors and grandparents raising their grandchildren. She also cohosted the annual Holiday Caravan, where she supported daycares in need, provided Christmas gifts for Children's Hospital and serviced youth in need throughout the Bankhead section of Atlanta.
"Precious was only peripherally involved in T.I. and Tiny's reality show, and wasn't in the spotlight as a celebrity.," the letter continues.
"We got this wrong and we regret posting the M.E.'s findings," the news site concludes.
