AceShowbiz - The number of T.I. and Tiny Harris a.k.a. Tameka Cottle's alleged victims continues to add up. New York-based attorney Tyrone A. Blackburn, who is already representing 11 people, including three males, accusing the couple of sexual assault, drugging and kidnapping, says 6 more woman have come forward with similar allegations.
Blackburn told The Daily Beast the potential six victims have reached out to him after he sent out a letter to authorities in California and Georgia calling for an investigation into the allegations. "If I was a prosecutor, I'd have brought charges already," the attorney said.
Blackburn additionally revealed he has spoken to two offices and has begun preliminary conversations surrounding his clients' claims with them, but won't share the details in order to preserve the "integrity of the investigation."
"This is very sensitive, and I do not want the Harrises to get off on a technicality because I may have disclosed something prematurely or because something may have gotten out," he reasoned. "For me, the goal is to get justice for these women, hands down," he stressed. "This is not about money. This is not about clout."
He added, "These women have come forward because there's a void that has been left in their lives and the people that created the void are Clifford and Tameka Harris. Granted, the void can never be fully filled, but at least it can be put back together if these cases are handled with care, are thoroughly investigated, indictments are executed, and the Harrises are prosecuted."
In the letter he sent to state and federal prosecutors Georgia and California, Blackburn wrote, "These women are unaware of each other, and without any leading on my part, they recount eerily similar events of sexual abuse, forced ingestion of illegal narcotics, kidnapping, terroristic threats and false imprisonment."
Blackburn's letter contains unsettling accounts from five women, including a former member of the military, an exotic dancer, a 17-year-old high schooler who interned at T.I.'s studio and record label Grand Hustle, and an old friend of Tiny's who later became her assistant.
T.I. and Tiny, through their lawyer, have denied all the allegations. "These allegations are nothing more than the continuation of a sordid shakedown campaign that began on social media and now attempts to manipulate the press and misuse the justice system," the couple's attorney Steve Sadow said.
The lawyer additionally branded the allegations "baseless and unjustified." He confidently stated, "We fully expect that if these claims are thoroughly and fairly investigated, no charges will be forthcoming."
