Melanie Marden claims she spent the night in a police precinct after receiving a death threat from a "hired assassin".
"I got a text message on my cell phone, which is unlisted and [is] not handed out very easily, and it basically said, 'Follow my instructions or you'll be assassinated within the next 24 hours,'" Marden told Page Six.
She said she spent the night at a Los Angeles police precinct after receiving the text message.
"I'm going to seek some professional guidance on this," she said. "My team is involved."
Marden says she reached out to someone in T.I.'s camp, who told her the rap mogul is away in Africa.
"I think T.I.'s left and is in Africa," she said, adding that she isn't sure he is aware that her life is in danger after appearing in his 1-minute music video clip.
"I'm not sure if he's fully aware of the scope of things. He was lovely to work with, was very considerate of my feelings on set."
MArden said she is strong enough to withstand bullying online. "Bullying and attacking people online is one thing, and I'm glad that I can handle all of it," she said. "However, death threats and assassins are a whole different level."
