The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating rapper T.I. and his wife Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris over claims that they sexually assaulted and drugged a woman they met in a nightclub in 2005.
The woman, who is only identified as ‘Jane Doe’ in court documents, met with detectives virtually last month, after her attorney, Tyrone Blackburn, sent a letter to local authorities calling for an investigation into her claims, according to The Daily Beast.
She claimed in court documents that she was first introduced to the couple b a man handing out flyers at a local mall, and she was invited to a club where they would be the following night.
She said she only had two drinks before she accepted a shot of Tiny’s Patron drink, and was quickly invited back to the couple’s hotel room with some other women.

Eventually, it was just T.I., Tiny and the woman left in the room when T.I. allegedly suggested they all go to the bathroom to ‘freshen up.’
‘Once in the bathroom Tiny took off all of victim’s clothing,’ the court documents say, and T.I. told the victim that she looked better naked.
The victim also claims Tiny, who was also naked, began to wash her.
T.I., meanwhile, allegedly turned on a pornographic television show, handed the victim a bottle of baby oil once she was out of the bathroom and told her to rub his back.
At that point, the court documents say, Tiny started sliding up and down the victim’s back while they were both naked.
T.I. allegedly stuck his toes into her vagina, and she allegedly told T.I. ‘no’ before rushing to the bathroom to throw up.
She said her last memory was sitting down on the couch before waking up the next morning with ‘her vagina very sore and had a burning/itching sensation.’
T.I. and Tiny has been accused of sexually assaulting and abusing a total of 14 women, all of which they categorically deny.

They are accused of abusing eight women who say they were drugged, kidnapped and forced into sex with the pair or someone in their circle. They deny those allegations, and claims from three men who also say the couple made ‘terrorist threats’ against them.
On Monday, The Daily Beast revealed that the attorney representing those eight women and three men had heard from six additional accusers.
They include a stripper, a member of the military, and a high school student who once interned at one of the rapper’s studios.

The women claim that T.I. and Tiny, whose real names are Clifford and Tameka, that the pair or someone in their circle date raped them then sexually abused them. No criminal charges have been brought against the pair.
The claims started in January on social media. Multiple women claimed to have been abused by the pair in some way, which prompted them to deny the allegations in a statement.
Then, lawyer Tyrone A. Blackburn approached some of the women to hear their stories. He then went to the authorities in Georgia and California, asking them to launch an investigation.
The women claim that T.I. and Tiny, whose real names are Clifford and Tameka, that the pair or someone in their circle date raped them then sexually abused them. They have previously denied similar allegations but haven’t yet addressed these
At the time, he said he had claims from 11 different people; the original eight women and three men.
Now, Blackburn says he has heard from an additional six women who have similar allegations.
He has written again to the authorities in Georgia and California, demanding that a criminal investigation be launched.
‘If I was a prosecutor, I’d have brought charges already.
‘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,” the letter from Blackburn states.
‘It concludes by imploring law enforcement officials to “tackle and end the stream depravity being committed” by the celebrity couple,’ he told the Beast on Monday.
‘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,’ he said, adding that the women are not seeking money.
Their allegations include claims from a 22-year-old who once worked as an intern at one of the rapper’s studios when she was in high school.
Lawyer Tyrone A. Blackburn is making the allegations public in the hopes that police will investigate
She described an alleged incident when she was 17 and working for the couple, on T.I.’s tour bus, when she claims his wife gave her a drink and two pills that made her ‘hot and and sweaty… [and she] began hallucinating and felt like she was floating.’
She claims that Tiny took her to the back of the tour bus to ‘cool off’ and that T.I. came over next and started commenting on her appearance.
She says she then blacked out and woke up ‘naked on a bed… bleeding from her vagina. She also felt discomfort in her anus.’
The next day, she claims she was taken home by one of the couple’s employees who said ‘she needs to learn to keep her mouth shut’ and ‘if she did not that bad things could happen to her and her family.’
She claims that she started losing control of her bowels in her sleep and was taken to the hospital where she was told she’d suffered ‘trauma to her anal cavity due to intense anal penetration.’
The member of the military said she was 22 in 2005 when she met the pair in a club in L.A.
She described going back to a hotel with them but said she started feeling ‘dizzy and light-headed’ after taking just one sip of Tiny’s drink.
She claims that three of them got into the shower where Tiny washed both her and T.I. Afterwards, she said Tiny tried to give her a ‘back butt massage’.
The woman, who was in the US Air Force, said T.I. then told her he wanted to put his vagina in her foot.
The woman said no but then apparently passed out and woke up ‘with a very sore vagina and a towel covering her.’
Steve Sadow, a lawyer for the pair, told DailyMail.com on Monday: ‘The Harrises continue to deny in the strongest possible terms these groundless and unjustified allegations.
‘When Blackburn finally exposes his anonymous accusers to the light of day by revealing their names, we will be in a position to confront his allegations. Hiding their identities makes it impossible for me to do so now.
‘We fully expect if the claims are fairly investigated, no charges will be brought.’
The couple previously sparked controversy when T.I. admitted to going to the gynecologist with his teenage daughter to ensure she was still a virgin.
‘Not only have we had the conversation. We have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen.
‘So we’ll go and sit down and the doctor will come and talk, and the doctor’s maintaining a high level of professionalism.
‘He’s like, ‘Well, you know, sir, I have to, in order to share information’ — I’m like, ‘Deyjah, they want you to sign this, so we can share information. Is there anything you would not want me to know? Oh OK. See, doc? Ain’t no problem,'” he said during a podcast interview.
The couple made its first public appearance since these allegations surfaced on May 17.
They were joined by their four-year-old daughter Heiress Diana as they grabbed dinner at BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood.
The 40-year-old rapper carried the couple’s youngest child in his arms, while strolling down the sidewalk with his 45-year-old wife in tow.
T.I., born Clifford Joseph Harris Jr., had on a white hoodie, black pants, and a pair of reflective Nike sneakers.
Mirroring her husband’s casual vibe, Tiny slipped her 4foot11inch frame into a pair of tie dyed leggings and a grey hooded sweatshirt.
Heiress Diana, who the couple welcomed into the world in 2016, looked sweet in a pale blue tracksuit, while carrying her father’s Las Vegas Raiders cap in hand.
