Rapper T.I. denies the allegations of violence and sexual abuse being made against him on social media
  • Rapper T.I. and his wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris denied various social media allegations against them.
  • Sabrina Peterson first sparked controversy when she alleged on Instagram that T.I. held a gun to her head in 2009.
  • Peterson then shared unsubstantiated allegations from anonymous women against the rapper. His spokesperson has denied these claims.

Rapper T.I. and his wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris denied social media allegations made against them last week.

The drama started when Glam University, a webinar series aimed at helping women launch their own CBD business, CEO Sabrina Peterson claimed on Instagram that T.I. put a gun to her head at a 2009 birthday party.

In a post on Tuesday, Peterson wrote, in part, "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!"

Speaking with Insider, Peterson elaborated on the alleged incident.

Peterson said an argument erupted between her and T.I. at a 2009 party for Harris' daughter. Peterson said T.I. arrived at the party after she'd gotten in an altercation with his assistant. She said he then put a gun to her head.

"B----, I'll kill you," Sabrina alleged to Insider that T.I. told her. She says the situation was eventually diffused, after which she distanced herself from the family.

After the 2009 incident, she and T.I.'s wife Harris were cordial, Peterson told Insider. She says they'd see each other for events such as baby showers and funerals but remained distant.

In response to Peterson's claim, Harris wrote on social media that she was confused about why these allegations were coming to light now. Harris uploaded her own post to Instagram - appearing to show Peterson previously posting positively about her sons spending time with TI - and wrote in the caption, "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?"

When asked why she was surfacing the 2009 allegation now, Peterson told Insider, "I'm a motivational speaker and as a motivational speaker, you speak about things you went through."

"I'm kind of getting tired of like officials holding him up in high regard and me knowing that the magnitude of what he's done to women," she continued. "The magnitude of how he treats women."

Peterson also shared anonymous and unsubstantiated allegations from other women, which the rapper's spokesperson has denied

After sharing her 2009 allegation, Peterson went on Instagram Live and began to talk about dealing with trauma as a Black woman.

"And the floodgates just opened," she told Insider.

She says she began to get direct messages from women with other allegations against TI and his wife. The anonymous messages, which Peterson has been reposting on her Instagram, allege the couple coerced various women into taking drugs and other allegations of sexual abuse. There have been no on-the-record allegations and they have not been corroborated by Insider.

The couple has since "emphatically" denied the allegations in a statement given to Complex. A spokesperson for the rapper and his wife wrote, "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. The Harrises have had difficulty with this woman for well over a decade. They are taking this matter very seriously."

T.I. and Harris' team did not immediately respond to Insider for comment.
