Lisa Bloom investigates new allegations made by different TI and Tiny accusers: “The music trade is lengthy overdue to settle” (unique)
TSR Exclusive: TI and Tiny are currently the subject of several investigations carried out by Bloom Firm.
The couple have been accused of sexual abuse by several women, both of whom have repeatedly denied it. While the couple have not been prosecuted in connection with the allegations, famed attorney Lisa Bloom has confirmed that she is currently representing one of her accusers and has now told us that she is looking into additional claims.
Bloom says the allegations she is investigating relate to “wrongdoing” and while she did not give us an exact number, she said that “several women” came forward to speak to her while making her allegations examined.
Bloom views these incidents as a bigger problem regarding women and their treatment in the entertainment world. “The music industry is long overdue when it comes to mistreating women, especially women of skin color,” says Bloom exclusively. “I believe the women who come forward now will be part of that change and we intend to fight for them.”
Her team says Bloom is currently investigating the case and she can’t give too many details about what her client is specifically claiming.
Bloom isn’t the only person taking these allegations seriously.
Last week we reported that MTV Entertainment is also investigating the allegations while announcing the suspension of TI & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle, which will air on VH1.
“We are aware of the allegations and while they are unrelated to our show, we have reached out to TI and Tameka Harris, as well as local and state officials,” a spokesman for MTV Entertainment said in a statement to Deadline. “Given the gravity of the allegations, we have decided to stop production for more information.”
Sources told Deadline the decision to stop production was a joint decision between MTV Entertainment, TI and Tiny. It is also reported that previously announced plans for a Spring Season 4 premiere are also being put on hold.
