Three additional women have come forward against Clifford "T.I." Harris and Tameka Dianne "Tiny" Harris Tuesday afternoon. Steven Sadow, the Atlanta-based couple's attorney, released a statement to XXL on the couple's account.

"The Harris's continue to wait for the accusers to reveal themselves publicly," said Sadow. "By hiding behind anonymous allegations, the unnamed accusers effectively render themselves not credible and unworthy of belief."

With these new allegations, 20 victims have made claims against T.I. and Tiny. The controversy began on January 26th, when a former friend of the family, Sabrina Peterson, posted on her Instagram account that the rapper put a gun to her head. However, she said she did not call the police about the alleged incident. 

On February 28th, The New York Times reported that Lawyer Tyrone A. Blackburn contacted law enforcement in Georgia and California. Speaking for 11 victims claiming that the couple or T.I entourage victimized them. 

The incidents allegedly took place from 2005 to 2018. They were described by Tyrone A. Blackburn as "sexual abuse, forced ingestion of illegal narcotics, kidnapping, terroristic threats and false imprisonment."

Tyrone A. Blackburn recently spoke with Page Six on April 2nd and shared an accusation made by an unnamed 20-year-old woman, who claims that the couple drugged her. Forcing her to swallow a pill after meeting her in a Miami club in 2010. Afterward, she was taken to a hotel in South Beach, where the couple's security confiscated the victim's phone, and T.I "forced her to take a powdered substance from his finger." She also asserted that "[Tiny] undressed her and proceeded to engage in sexual intercourse. 

The couple has continued to deny all charges made against them.
