T.I. and Tiny Sued by Air Force Veteran Who Claims Couple Drugged and Sexually Assaulted Her

An Air Force veteran who previously claimed she was drugged and sexually assaulted by rapper T.I. and his wife, Tameka Harris, in 2005 sued the couple in Los Angeles late Tuesday.

The Jane Doe plaintiff says she was around 22 or 23 years old and stationed in Los Angeles when she attended a party at Coolio’s house and met a man who purportedly worked for T.I. and Tameka, also known as Tiny. She alleges the man, who went by the name “Caviar,” helped facilitate a meeting with T.I. and Tiny at a club the following night. She alleges once she was in the VIP section with the famous couple, Tiny handed her a drink she believes was spiked.

According to the new 15-page lawsuit, obtained by Rolling Stone, Doe says she was separated from her friend and ended up in a hotel room with T.I., Tiny and two other women who eventually were asked to leave. The plaintiff alleges T.I., whose legal name is Clifford Harris, began issuing demands with “explicit detail” like he was “reciting a script.” She claims Tiny stripped her naked and then entered a shower with her. She claims she was “extremely dizzy and lightheaded” and appeared “visibly drugged” when T.I. directed her to the bed. She alleges T.I. tuned on a pornographic movie to get aroused as Tiny climbed on her back and held her face down on her stomach.

“While Tiny was straddled on Plaintiff’s back and pinning her down, T.I. then proceeded to slide his toes into Plaintiff’s vagina,” the filing reads. “Plaintiff told him ‘No’ (and) tried to move T.I. out of her and away from her. T.I. then said he would go get a condom and Tiny continued to arouse herself by grinding on Plaintiff and massaging her backside. Plaintiff grew increasingly sicker and felt extremely ill by the assault and battery she was experiencing.”

The woman alleges she eventually forced herself to get up from the bed and vomited in the bathroom. She claims T.I. then mocked her by saying, “Are you alright? …Looks like you in last place.” She alleges she passed out and noticed she was in “serious pain” the next morning when a security guard demanded that she leave the room where T.I. and Tiny purportedly were sleeping.

“Forcing someone, in this case by way of drugs, into doing something of a sexual nature they don’t want to is sexual battery – rape,” the plaintiff’s attorney, Rodney Diggs, tells Rolling Stone. “Even after all these years, the embarrassment, shame, depression – it still lingers. Silencing women, silences justice. No longer will my client remain silent; we are now seeking justice for her and everyone who has been similarly violated.”

The new lawsuit was filed under California’s Sexual Abuse and Cover Up Accountability Act, which went into effect on January 1, 2023 and offered a one-year ‘lookback” window to file lawsuits in cases of alleged sexual abuse with expired statues of limitations, so long as the allegations include an attempted cover up. (Some cases were allowed to be filed on Tuesday since the law expired during a holiday weekend.)


T.I. and Tiny vehemently denied the allegations in a statement to Rolling Stone. “On the heels of positivity, negativity always rears its ugly head. This plaintiff has been threatening to file this lawsuit for THREE years. For THREE years, we have emphatically and categorically denied these allegations,” they said. “For THREE years we have maintained our innocence and refused to pay these extortionate demands for things we didn’t do. For THREE years, we’ve maintained the same position while the claims in this story have changed time and time again. Our position is clear. We are innocent of these fake claims, we will not be shaken down, and we look forward to our day in court.”

Multiple women have accused T.I. and Tiny of victimization, allegations the couple denies.
