T.I. and Tiny Harris trended most of last week after dozens of women accused the couple of several disturbing acts of sexual abuse.
After first releasing a joint statement via their lawyer, T.I uploaded a video to social media where he talked at length about the allegations. He denied the things he has been accused of.
“Hey, so, as y’all can probably guess or imagine, it’s been extremely difficult for me to remain quiet in light of all the things that have transpired and all of the egregious allegations that’s being tossed around about me and my wife,” Tip says in the video. “But it’s a reason for that and I don’t mind sharing it. You see, if a person does not have any right to criminally or civilly have you in court, they have no right, the best thing they can do is get you for defamation, a defamation suit. Drag you in court, make you pay they legal bills to get you in court.”
T.I. PROMOTES HIS SEAFOOD SPOT
He continued: “It’s at the point where that doesn’t even matter to me no more, OK?” he said. “But that’s the motive, that’s the strategy, that’s the intention. Say a whole bunch of false stuff about you that get people to believe and make them come out and say, ‘They’re a liar, they’re a liar, they’re a liar.’ And then they can say, ‘See, they called me a liar. That’s defamation.’ Then they drag you in court, get you under oath and all that because unfortunately right now, it doesn’t matter as much what they can prove you did. It matters what you can prove you didn’t.”
