Back in January, the couple rejected accusations came up with by among the 11 people Sabrina Peterson, who declared T.I. put a weapon to her head. During journalism conference, Blackburn stated Peterson “opened up the door” for the females and “gave them courage to come forward.” He likewise stated “these women have never put forth a request for money” which T.I. and Tiny’s legal group appeared “very very interested in killing this story and killing these claims.” However, Sadow rejected this accusation.
“I understand that at a virtual press conference today, attorney Blackburn claimed the Harrises reached out to him through me to supposedly make a deal. That is patently false,” he informed Variety. “I reached out to see if he would share any information since his name was posted on Instagram as the attorney for Sabrina Peterson. Blackburn repeatedly refused to provide the names of his accuser-clients or any corroborating or supporting evidence of his groundless claims. The Harrises repeat that they are confident if a thorough and fair investigation is conducted, no charges will be brought.”
On March 1, T.A. Blackburn Law likewise verified to E! News that it submitted a disparagement claim versus T.I., Tiny and Shekinah J. Anderson, the latter of whom appeared on the couple’s truth TELEVISION programs consisting of TI & Tiny’s Family Hustle.
“Defamation, slander and libel all bring legal action which Ivie McNeill, Wyatt, Purcell & Diggs together with T.A. Blackburn Law plan to prosecute to the max degree on behalf of our customer, Ms. Peterson,” a declaration checked out. “A person’s choice of words, especially, words from public figures with millions of followers on social media, causes and has caused Ms. Peterson to suffer internal scars. These salacious words may not have caused physical harm but they did destroy Ms. Peterson’s soul, reputation and causes irreparable harm to her business and her brand. TI, Tiny nor Ms. Jones can unring that bell.”
Sadow responded to the claim in a declaration to The Hollywood Reporter. “Ms. Peterson is the definition of ‘libel proof,'” he stated. “She has a lengthy rap sheet for crimes involving dishonesty and violence. Nothing our clients may have said about her is defamatory. Ultimately, not only will Peterson’s meritless lawsuit be dismissed, but also she will be responsible for paying the legal fees the Harrises will be forced to incur in connection with it.”
