Atlanta, GA – Former owner of The Glam Bar in Atlanta Sabrina Peterson ignited a firestorm of controversy this week after she accused Clifford “T.I.” Harris of once holding a gun to her head, which she later claimed occurred while she was “beating up” Tip’s former female assistant.
But on Thursday (January 28), Peterson took it to a whole other level when she started posting alleged testimonies from multiple women accusing the couple of drugging, trafficking and sexually abusing them. The internet chatter grew so intense Tip and Tiny became a trending Twitter topic as more and more alleged victims came out of the woodwork.
But in a statement obtained by HipHopDX, the Harrises refute all allegations.
“Mr. and Mrs. Harris want to be on record and more importantly want the public to know they emphatically deny in the strongest way possible the egregiously appalling allegations being made against them by Sabrina Peterson,” a spokesperson says. “The Harrises have had difficulty with this woman for well over a decade. They are taking this matter very seriously, and if these allegations don’t end, they will take appropriate legal action.”
Following Peterson’s claim, Tiny quickly came to her husband’s defense, writing on Instagram, “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?
“What wit you today Pooh? I’m confused. Stop Harassing My Family. Everybody know you been special (face slicing seminar lady). Please get help but LEAVE US ALONE.”
Peterson, who was a friend of Tiny’s at one point, appeared upset with T.I. earlier this month after he criticized Atlanta councilwoman Felicia Moore for trying to place restrictions on new recording studios.
“Excuse me Mrs @feliciamooreatl but …Our Culture Runs This Town Ma’am,” he captioned the post. “These studios (& the creatives that work in em) have laid foundation & paved ways to create opportunities for this city like nothing else could. Yeah we might get loud, no we not perfect, but we’ve contributed to this city’s culture & economic growth, consistently…for decades!!!”
An internet search of Peterson’s past reveals she has six restraining orders against her for stalking out of both DeKalb and Fulton County, Georgia — all from different people. She stands accused of sending threatening text messages, voice mails and emails.
In 2013, Peterson turned herself in to authorities for “slicing and dicing” a former friend, according to Straight From The A, and wound up serving roughly one year in prison.
An anonymous source said at the time, “She actually was wanted for attempted murder after she slashed up the girl who was babysitting for her. Sabrina had loaned the girl her car so that she could go get her nails done and it took too long. K. Michelle was there when it all went down too.”
Five years later, a man named Gabriel Brunson filed another restraining order against Peterson, alleging she was posting false information about him online.
“R [Respondent] began posting on social media that P [Petitioner] gave her HIV and that he wouldn’t get tested,” the court filing reads. “Thousands of people came to P’s page, making comments. R also posted that P was moving, gave his address, and that he was giving items away. P had people coming to his residence for days.”
Although Peterson’s credibility is being called into question, the accusations against Tip and Tiny continue to fly on social media. One person claimed T.I. and Tiny “made her do coke and take Molly’s and tried to have a threesome,” while another person alleged they tried to get her and a friend to do drugs following a Colorado concert.
But some hypothesize Peterson is attempting to damage Tip’s reputation because he’s supporting Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms instead of her friend Moore. Toward the end of her initial Tip confessional, she called on Bottoms to stop working with Tip.
“LETS TALK! @keishabottoms,” she wrote. “YOU CANT HAVE A PERSON THAT HAS VICTIMIZED WOMEN SPEAK FOR US! Lets have a real TALK!”
In the wake of the explosive allegations, at least one person has come forward and admitted their story was completely fabricated. An Instagram post shared by @theindustryonblast show alleged screenshots of someone saying, “Lmaoooo I made it sound so real. Her dumb ass. Like Imagine how many other people are actually doing this.
“Just hopping on the bandwagon trying to make them look bad. Like I did that just to prove a a point and it worked. She just posting any random ass message she get lol desperate af.”
Either the allegations are entirely fake and coming from the same person or the real allegations are being intertwined with the fake ones, creating an even bigger mess. Whatever the case, the Harrises are clearly maintaining their innocence.
