Los Angeles Police Department has commenced investigating T.I. and Tiny Harris for alleged s*xual assault. A spokesperson for the LAPD tells PEOPLE that an investigation is ongoing.
The Daily Beast reports that a woman, whose identity was not unveiled, virtually met with detectives in April. The said woman reported an alleged assault that took place in 2005.
Another woman filed a police report with similar allegations in Las Vegas earlier this month, the outlet also reports.
Steve Sadow, an attorney for T.I. and Tiny, told PEOPLE in a statement: “The Harrises have not spoken to or been contacted by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). or, indeed, any member of law enforcement from any other jurisdiction in the country.
Even assuming the story in the Daily Beast is close to accurate, it appears the LAPD ‘accuser’ has chosen once again to remain anonymous. This thereby prevents us from being in a position to disprove or refute her allegations or even examine them. Meanwhile, although we now appear for the first time to have the name of an ‘accuser’ who supposedly filed a police report with LVPD, we have absolutely zero details about her or her claim.”

According to an LAPD investigative report obtained by PEOPLE, the woman claimed she met the couple at a Los Angeles club and had accepted a sip of Tiny’s drink. The couple then invited her back to their hotel room, the woman claimed, where the three allegedly showered together.
The woman alleged she fell ill when T.I. performed a s*x act on her, to which she told him “no.”
She told investigators that her last memory was sitting down on a couch after throwing up in the bathroom. The woman said that she woke up the next morning “very sore” with a “burning/itching sensation” in her genital area.
Earlier this year a woman alleged on Instagram that the couple would force women to take drugs and have s*x with them and that T.I. once held a gun to her head.
In March, the couple denied the allegations levelled against them. The couple’s lawyer said they “deny in the strongest possible terms the unsubstantiated and baseless allegations” and called it a “shakedown.”
Amid the allegations, production for T.I. and Tiny’s VH1 reality show, T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle, was suspended.
