T.I. And Tiny Harris Sued For Sexual Assault And Battery In Los Angeles Hotel


Renowned rapper T.I. and his wife, Tiny Harris, are currently entangled in a legal battle as they face serious allegations of sexual assault and battery. The lawsuit, filed by an individual identified as Jane Doe, accuses the couple of drugging her after meeting at a nightclub and subsequently subjecting her to harrowing experiences at a Los Angeles hotel.

Key Takeaway

T.I. and Tiny are facing serious legal accusations, with the plaintiff alleging drugging, coercion, and sexual misconduct during an encounter at an L.A. hotel. The couple’s legal representatives have refuted the claims, emphasizing that the lawsuit was filed after the expiration of the applicable deadline.

The Allegations

The plaintiff, who was reportedly in the U.S. Air Force and stationed in L.A. around 2005, claims that she and a friend encountered a man known as “Caviar” at a party hosted by Coolio. According to the lawsuit, “Caviar” was affiliated with T.I. and Tiny. The suit further alleges that the couple failed to appear at the initial gathering but rendezvoused with the plaintiff and others at an L.A. nightclub the following night.

During the evening, the plaintiff states that she consumed a drink offered by Tiny, in addition to two Amaretto sours she had ordered herself. Upon leaving the club, T.I. purportedly invited her to accompany him and Tiny to a hotel, while her friend traveled separately with “Caviar” and others.

Once at the hotel, the plaintiff asserts that she, Tiny, and T.I. found themselves in a room with two unfamiliar women, who were subsequently asked to leave by Tiny due to alleged flirtatious behavior. The plaintiff describes a distressing sequence of events, alleging that she was coerced into nudity and subsequently subjected to unwanted physical contact by the couple.

Legal Action and Response

The lawsuit, which includes claims of sexual battery, assault, negligence, and false imprisonment, is made possible by California’s Sexual Abuse and Cover Up Accountability Act. This legislation has allowed for the revival of claims that would have otherwise surpassed the statute of limitations.

Conversely, legal representatives for T.I. and Tiny have vehemently refuted the allegations, contending that the claims are baseless and asserting that the lawsuit was filed after the expiration of the applicable deadline.
