T.I. is facing some heavy allegations from one of his wife’s friends Sabrina Peterson. According to an Instagram post Peterson shared on Monday night (January 25), the Hustle Gang boss once put a gun to her head while her children were in the same room.
But, as she explained in the comment section, the incident happened because she was assaulting Tip’s former female assistant who was allegedly treating Tiny like a “SLAVE.”
“The sad part about being a woman & BEING A BLACK WOMAN IS THIS! The public PRAISES OUR PREDATORS! @troubleman31 you PUT A GUN TO MY HEAD IN FRONT OF CHILDREN & I NEVER CALLED THE POLICE ON YOU! But for years you have painted me as the VILLAIN!
“AS BLACK WOMEN! It’s hard to heal from RAPE, VIOLENCE OR ANYTHING BECAUSE YOU ARE PAINTED AS THE PROBLEM OR REASON THIS HAS HAPPENED TO YOU! LETS NORMALIZE THE ALLOWING BLACK WOMEN TO HEAL! It’s so hard being the VICTIM OF RAPE & BEING PAINTED AS THE REASON IT HAPPENED!”

Peterson appears to be upset by one of Tip’s recent Instagram posts in which he criticized Atlanta councilwoman Felicia Moore for trying to place restrictions on new recording studios. On Monday (January 25), Tip shared an old article dated January 18, 2017 stating Moore had received numerous noise complaints in her district and reports of too many cars parked in the area.
“Excuse me Mrs @feliciamooreatl but …Our Culture Runs This Town Ma’am,” he captioned the post. “These studios (& the creatives that work in em) have laid foundation & paved ways to create opportunities for this city like nothing else could. Yeah we might get loud, no we not perfect, but we’ve contributed to this city’s culture & economic growth, consistently…for decades!!!
“Our contributions to the communities here in this city have gone overlooked far too long. We’ve been on the front line making a difference in this city (in ways nobody else in politics would) even before Hollywood found us attractive.”

But Tip wasn’t finished there and continued taking partial credit for Atlanta’s flourishing economy with, “That’s right…Before the filming industry moved to town we’ve BEEN making an economic impact yet the film studios receive all the tax benefits, rebates & considerations.
“And not just us rappers & artists… within the culture there’s a host of producers, engineers, art directors, event planners, club & studio designers, radio personalities, A&Rs, DJ’s , dancers, promoters, & club owners who’ve put ALL OUR HEART & SOUL into making this city what it is TODAY.”
He added, “Put some respect on that please & thanks. #DontPlayWitUs #ByeFelicia.”
Peterson, who once served time in federal prison, launched GirlPower Holdings in 2019, a place for women to learn the ins and outs of business. She also owns Pretty High, one of the few cannabis lines owned by a Black woman. Toward the end of her T.I. confessional, she called on Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms to stop working with Tip.
“LETS TALK! @keishabottoms,” she wrote. “YOU CANT HAVE A PERSON THAT HAS VICTIMIZED WOMEN SPEAK FOR US! Lets have a real TALK!”
The status of Tiny and Peterson’s friendship is undetermined at this point. In 2017, Peterson publicly disagreed with Tip’s comments about marriage being a distraction and wrote a letter to herself that read, “Dear Self, Don’t give a man your good years, become a felon for him, let go of friends, give up your career to support his, don’t be too loyal because one day he might get where y’all worked to hard to be and consider you a ‘DISTRACTION.’ Love Always, Me.”
