TI and his wife Tiny Harris have been charged with drugging and sexually assaulting three more women, adding to a rapidly growing list of accusers.
The three new accusers hired attorney Tyrone A. Blackburn, who represents several other women who claim the 40-year-old rapper and his 45-year-old singer-songwriter wife sexually assaulted them, Page Six reported Friday.
Blackburn has said he is “speaking with investigators from multiple jurisdictions to press criminal charges” against the celebrity couple.

A spokesman for the attorney says one of the alleged victims said the husband and wife duo “ pulled out a pill and forced her to swallow it ” when they met at a Miami nightclub in 2010.
According to the woman, her group moved to a hotel in South Beach where a security guard for the couple forced her to hand over her cell phone.
The Blackburn spokesman said the woman claimed TI later “forced her to take a powdered substance off her finger.”
The woman also said that ‘[Tiny] He undressed her and proceeded to have sex.
“She said her body was numb, the room was slowing down and she was unable to consent,” the spokesperson added.

Her story is similar to that of several other women who have accused TI and Tiny of rape, sexual assault, and sex trafficking.
Another of the new accusers accused TI and one of her male friends of ‘drugging and raping her’ in a Miami hotel room over Memorial Day weekend in 2010.
A third new accuser claimed the rapper took her across state lines for sexual purposes, which could be a federal crime.
She said she was “drugged … and trafficked in sex in Nevada, California and Florida.”
Blackburn’s spokesman said his clients have made “a myriad of allegations of forced drug addiction, kidnapping, rape and intimidation,” though he does not represent all the women who have shared the sexual assault allegations against TI and Tiny with him.
An attorney representing TI and Tiny denied the women’s claims in March, calling them “retaliation.”
The position of my clients remains the same. We are still waiting for the anonymous accusers to reveal themselves to the public and the Harrisons. Their continued unwillingness and refusal to do so compromises and undermines every single allegation that is made, ” he said.

Six more women, including a member of the military and a stripper, previously joined the group of accusers in early March.
The couple have been rejecting the women, who say they were drugged, kidnapped and forced to have sex with the couple or someone in their circle. TI and Tiny have denied those allegations and the claims of three men who also say the couple made ‘terrorist threats’ against them.
On March 8, The Daily Beast revealed that the attorney represented those eight women and three men who had heard from six additional accusers.
They included a stripper, a member of the military, and a high school student who once interned at one of the rapper’s studios.
The women claimed that TI and Tiny (whose real names are Clifford and Tameka), or someone in their circle, raped them and then sexually abused them. No criminal charges have been filed against the couple.

The claims began in January on social media. Several women claimed to have been abused by the couple in some way, leading them to deny the allegations in a statement.
Later, Blackburn reached out to some of the women to hear their stories. He then went to the Georgia and California authorities, asking them to launch an investigation.
At the time, he said he had claims from 11 different people; the original eight women and the three original men.
Blackburn later said that he had heard from six other women who had similar allegations.
He has again written to the Georgia and California authorities, demanding that a criminal investigation be launched.

‘If I were a prosecutor, I would have already filed charges.
“These women do not know each other, and without any guidance from me, they report eerily similar incidents of sexual abuse, forced ingestion of illegal narcotics, kidnappings, terrorist threats, and false imprisonment,” states Blackburn’s letter.
He concludes by imploring law enforcement officials to “address and end the current depravity that” the celebrity couple is committing, “he told the Beast on Monday.
‘These women have come forward because a void has been left in their lives and the people who created the void are Clifford and Tameka Harris.
“ Of course, the void can never be completely filled, but it can at least be put back together if these cases are handled carefully, thoroughly investigated, indictments executed, and the Harrisons are prosecuted, ” he said, and added that women are not looking for money.
His allegations include claims by a 22-year-old who once interned at one of the rapper’s studios when he was in high school.
Doing His Part: Attorney Tyrone A. Blackburn Is Going Public In Hoping Police Will Investigate
She described an alleged incident when she was 17 years old and working for the couple, on the TI tour bus, when she claims that her wife gave her a drink and two pills that made her ‘hot and sweaty … [and she] he started hallucinating and he felt like he was floating. ‘
She claims that Tiny took her to the back of the tour bus to ‘freshen up’ and that TI was next and started commenting on her appearance.
She says she later passed out and woke up ‘naked in a bed … bleeding from her vagina. He also felt discomfort in the anus. ‘
The next day, she claims that she was taken home by one of the couple’s employees, who told her that ‘she needs to learn to keep her mouth shut’ and ‘if she didn’t, bad things could happen to her and her family’ .
She claims that she began to lose control of her bowels while sleeping and was taken to hospital where she was told that she had suffered ‘trauma to her anal cavity due to intense anal penetration’.
The military man said he was 22 years old in 2005 when he met the couple at a club in Los Angeles.
She described returning to a hotel with them, but said she started feeling ‘dizzy and groggy’ after taking just one sip of Tiny’s drink.
She claims that three of them got into the shower where Tiny washed her and YOU. Then she said Tiny tried to give her a ‘butt rub.
The woman, who was in the US Air Force, said TI later told her he wanted to put his foot in her vagina.
The woman said no, but then apparently passed out and woke up “with a very sore vagina and a towel covering it.”
Steve Sadow, an attorney for the couple, told DailyMail.com on Monday: ‘The Harrisons continue to deny in the strongest possible terms these baseless and unwarranted allegations.
When Blackburn finally brings his anonymous accusers out into the open by revealing their names, we will be in a position to face their accusations. Hiding their identities makes it impossible for me to do so now.
“We fully expect that if the claims are investigated fairly, no charges will be brought.”

He says, ‘Well, you know, sir, I have to, so I can share information.’ I said, ‘Deyjah, they want you to sign this, so we can share information.’ Is there anything you don’t want me to know? Oh, okay. See, doctor? No problem, ” he said during a podcast interview.
