On Jan. 28, a spokesperson for the Harrises released a statement, calling the allegations brought against them “egregiously appalling.” “Mr. and Mrs. Harris want to be on record and more importantly want the public to know they emphatically deny in the strongest way possible the egregiously appalling allegations being made against them by Sabrina Peterson,” the statement reads. “The Harrises have had difficulty with this woman for well over a decade. They are taking this matter very seriously, and if these allegations don’t end, they will take appropriate legal action.” The next day, T.I. personally denied the allegations on IGTV. He called the women accusing him of various crimes “liars,” and suggested that he would take legal action against them. “Women, Black women in particular, should be supported, protected, defended, and uplifted,” he said. “However, evil has no gender … A threat comes in all shapes and sizes.” He also addressed the allegations against his wife and called her a “beautiful person” and a great mother to their blended family. “What we’re not gonna do is open the door to my bedroom,” he continued. “But I will say this: Whatever we ever have done, has been done with consensual adults who [are] into what we’re into and like what we like […] We never forced nobody, we never drugged nobody against their will, we ain’t never held nobody against their will, we never made nobody do anything … Never raped nobody.”
