Rapper TI and his wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris are under investigation by Los Angeles police after allegation of sexual abuse.
Los Angeles Police Officer Rosario Cervantes said on Tuesday an active investigation was underway. The investigation comes after a woman in Los Angeles and another in Las Vegas filed a police report accusing the couple of sexual assault.
A report was caught on April 8 for a sexual assault involving the couple in 2005, Cervantes said. Police did not provide any further details.
Las Vegas police received a report this month of a 2010 sexual assault incident involving the couple. But the case was closed because it was reported outside the statute of limitations.
Steve Sadow, the lawyer for TI and his wife, said his clients “firmly deny and repudiate” all allegations. He said the couple had not spoken or been contacted by police in Los Angeles, Las Vegas or any other jurisdiction in the country.
The LAPD’s “accuser” once again remains anonymous, preventing us from being able to refute or refute her claims – or even examine them, ”Sadow said. “Meanwhile, although we now have for the first time the name of an ‘accuser’, who apparently filed a police report with (Las Vegas Metropolitan Police), we essentially have no details on. his claim, and his lawyer has so far refused to release a copy of the report for public review. “
The Associated Press generally does not identify people who say they have been sexually assaulted.
In March, attorney Tyrone A. Blackburn said more than 30 women contacted him, accusing TI and his wife of “forced drugs, kidnapping, rape and intimidation” in at least two states, including California and Georgia. . He said the allegations spanned more than 15 years.
A spokesperson for TI and Tiny denied the charges.
