Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris vented his frustration at gossip blog TMZ and founder Harvey Levin for profiting off of his sister, Precious Harris's death.

T.I. vented his anger and frustration in an Instagram story on Thursday, moments after TMZ published a coroner's report that attributed his sister's death to "cocaine toxicity."

"TMZ and Harvey, y'all been profiting off of people's pain. You dig what um saying," T.I. said. "People die. People around them; the families who are grieving. You know what um saying. Y'all putting information out there that really disrupts their grieving [process]."

A coroner's report, obtained by TMZ, indicates Precious died from a cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heart rhythm) brought on by cocaine toxicity which aggravated her preexisting hypertension (high blood pressure).

The cocaine in her blood elevated her blood pressure which triggered an abnormal heart rhythm that disrupted the blood flow to her brain, causing her to black out behind the wheel.

Precious, 66, was driving T.I.'s Dodge Challenger with his grandniece, Kiari Chapman, in the passenger seat when she suddenly lost consciousness and the car veered off the road and hit a light pole.

Precious was placed on a ventilator machine to breathe for her in a hospital intensive care unit. She passed away on Feb. 21 without ever regaining consciousness.

    I never trusted tmz after they released Rihanna photos after the Chris brown fight... it wasn’t because they cared about her welfare it was the most mean spirited thing I had ever seen a media organization do.
    They have a habit of really attacking blacks and unabashedly releasing information with no remorse...

    well Cliff....if TMZ had not reported...somebody else would have....ex: mediatakeout...etc......

  • RespectSelf

    But they been doing this for a while... matter of fact he has put his 2 cents into stuff that was posted on blogs sooo keep that same energy

  • Society has changed

    What are minute.... T.I. most likely knew Precious liked nose candy and now he in his feelings. I’m going to to fix me a tuna on rye because I can’t with this....

  • Maxx

    He would have done better not to say anything as putting his displeasure on social media will just do what it is doing now, create more talk. Sometimes we cannot run with emotions, gotta think first.

  • MrsSpice1

    They Attack everyone so plz.....???!!! And if u want a private life dont be come a celebrity..nothing is off limits not even yo family... they missed that fine devils print on thAt contract they signed for the fame and money!! All is good when u getting paid and glorified until things get dark n ugly...then they wanna cry but im a human this and i dont deserve that...wah wah waah!

  • Bashi22

    Wasn’t TMZ paid LAPD for Rihanna battered face photo from Chris Brown. TMZ do the most for black celebrities but the whites they don’t go hard.

  • fawkery

    Glad he called out TMZ. Straight trash and the comments section is filled with anti-black rhetoric. I've noticed other black blogs have been on some TMZ ish...specifically posting more race baiting articles or random posts about the most obscure white people like we care. Auntie, you a real one. Never change.

  • Bashi22

    I never and their constant pursuit on Chris Brown life too

  • MrsSpice1

    Thats the INDUSTRY PERIOD!!! Ppl kill me acting surprised at how THE SYSTEM operates like its all brand new ?!! It has always been that way!! But u mofos still watch and follow tmz and gossip and support mofos like Wendy whom IS NOOOO BETTER!! ?

  • Joy King

    T.I. you should've made sure this report was buried and not leaked. It can be done for the right price Sir. We all know what TMZ is about. They like to sensationalize news/gossip. No matter the circumstances this lady is no longer here, which is sad. 66 is too soon, May Precious RIP.

  • Topic Influencer

    I love you Tip. I defend you here a lot bruh. However, be fair. Its not just TMZ. My guess is that they were trying to beat your HOMETOWN NEWS OUTLETS, AJC and the news stations. If ANY of the news outlets who put in the line" "autopsy pending" who covered her death? What did you expect? For them to NEVER follow up on said insertion? Lets be real here. I dont like TMZ much. But its their job to scoop other news outlets.

  • sunni_daze

    I liked TMZ better when they only covered wypipo. It seems malicious when they even speak to black celebs.

  • Topic Influencer

    Would you be this pissed if AJC HAD run this first? Or would your pain and outrage be the same?

  • Nita Pie

    So Sandra you aint with the boycott? LOL

  • Nita Pie

    Van and Raquel gets all the black scoop

  • Tinytoon

    Ok, who called it. Someone said that he will most likely will call out TMZ for releasing this.

  • KneeSee

    Tmz posted an apology on their site.

  • Solstice

    Lol ikr!! Quite a few called it downstairs. I was telling myself wait for it…wait for it… I don’t blame him though ?

  • MsPam

    Didn’t I say this morning that T.I was going to have a pissy fit?! Sometimes we want to the best of our family, everyone wants to go to Heaven but don’t want to die to get there.

  • MsPam

    Earlier in another post I said he was going to be piss!ed off.

  • MJF

    I don't know. Blogs profit off of people's pain, it's sad. Precious was known as T.I's sister, she wasn't really a celebrity so to speak; so for them to release this public information AFTER THE FACT was uncalled for. I said what I said. It was distasteful in every aspect.

  • Topic Influencer

    TI made a payment and it was pulled. Thus an apology was made. Its too late now. Other places have picked it up.

  • Hazel

    Sorry TI. News is news. You can't use the media for your personal benefit only when it complements you. Sorry for your loss, but TMZ did their job....no apology necessary as long as the report was respectful.

  • Applebootay

    A deaf, blind and mute person could've called this one....

  • Guest

    TMZ just apologized.

  • jazmine

    TMZ apologized ? what he got on Harvey?

  • Applebootay

    My concern is for the kids of the family who probably weren't privy to this information....

  • MJF

    Money.

  • Hazel

    Just because they bowed to pressure doesn't mean they did anything wrong. It's not like they called her a crackhead or lambasted her for putting others' lives at risk for driving under the influence; the latter of which would've sent her ass to jail if she hadn't died....for sure, they could've gone for the jugular, but didn't.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    lol are you saying somewhere there's a former Houston's restaurant owner siding eyeing TIP? https://media1.giphy.com/media/iAYupOdWXQy5a4nVGk/giphy-downsized-medium.gif

  • fawkery

    I also peeped how Harvey talks to some of the black staff - he cuts them off and they can barely get a word in.

  • Vonn

    He was a drug dealer. He caused and profited off of other people's pain.?

  • Topic Influencer

    Well there you have it. Thanks for playing Vonn.

  • KneeSee

    They did a nice clean up though by listing her achievements and postive things about her life.

  • Renee26

    Looks up his nostils for a powdery substance

  • jazmine

    You think he paid Harvey to apologize?

  • MJF

    I never saw TMZ retract a statement so I dunno lol, was just the first thing that came to my mind. I thought the whole thing was distasteful but I guess it doesn't matter because here we are commenting on the same story that was "retracted"....

  • KneeSee

    Please don't do this.

  • Renee26

    Well, he was sounding a lot like Ike Turner on his video so I had to check ?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    sweet lawd .... rofl !

  • Carrington

    While she wasn't a "celebrity" she was on his show and she ONLY gets blogworthy posts if people are interested. When Michael died, we needed to know why, when Prince died, we needed to know that it was an OD... when Demi Lovato OD'd recently, they reported it, if this had been Nene Leakes' sister, we would've read the story, we've been keeping up with Wendy Williams' crackhead problems for a few months now. Suddenly, when it's T.I., it's nobody's business?
    It's NEVER anybody's business, if you ask me, but if we're going to be FAIR about it, we still come to the blogs, Sandra Rose ESPECIALLY because this story is exactly what we come for, pretend to be righteous if we must.
    Unfortunately for TIP it hurts because THIS story is about HIS sister so he's upset because his day came again. Unfortunately, you won't feel what you don't feel until you're in it. Now that he's in it, this $hit hits different.
    It's the game. I know it hurts to have your sisters business out there, but that's a part of the game when you bring her on television and make her a part of your celebrity world.

  • tia

    Since TI is directly affected, now it's an issue about how TMZ maneuvers.
    Shame on him. It's unfortunate, but this is reality TI. He knows what's up or pay the big bucks to keep your name out of their mouths. Many people die from the flu and most likely Kim Porter did succumb to this illness. I bet you one thing tho, if it was some shenanigans behind it you haven't heard a peep from any news outlet. Saying that to say, I'm sure Puffy paid for any speculation to be laid to rest right along with Kim.

  • KneeSee

    He was giving me Soulja Boy vibes, but I ain't the one to talk about ppl. ?

  • Topic Influencer

    I mean I understand. I get it. However they report on the family of celebs too who die due to drug use. Its not their first time. Maybe they will stop after this. I doubt it but maybe.

  • Renee26

    Probably gave it to her ?

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Well they already heard years ago that their parents was on drugs too when they got busted with that ecstasy. I will say it's insensitive but that's their job to report all news. Maybe they should use this as a teaching moment for their kids of what NOT to do.

  • Hazel

    And dare we ask where she got the money to buy the drugs that stopped her heart while driving on public streets putting me and mine at risk?

  • Jordan’s Memory

    IDK, but I never understand why people always want an apology. The info is out and they said what they said. You know TI gonna call for a boycott of TMZ in 5,4,3,2,1

  • Renee26

    That photo saved her life... Had the public backlash led to their split she'd still be in a DV relationship...and his rage was worse than hers although she laid hands on him too. They were toxic for eachother...sad cause I loved them together.

  • Russiancreme

    Lol I wasnt even thinking about that, but you're right. I was more thinking about his music and his trap glorification... that lifestyle got all kinds of ppl living in pain

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. Sad, but true. As far as I'm concerned, every drug dealer or former drug dealer has blood on his hands to some extent.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    To smoothe this ninja ego chile ....... but it's out there now !!!!

  • Vonn

    Yup! Clifford knows what TMZ is all about & he uses them & other media outlets to his advantage when he has a point to make. He also knows that the other side of that coin flips against you.

  • Carrington

    They posted that they were wrong to post the story, but not that the story was false. (and then they went on and posted a prepared statement that I'm SURE was provided by the family) about her life's accomplishments.
    They ended with, "... we regret posting the medical examiner's findings" - I don't know if people caught that. Basically they said, "It was f*cked up to post what the medical examiner determined"...

  • Trey

    Sorry Cliff...you been profiting off the misery of the black community your whole career

  • Jordan’s Memory

    No Bullshittt!

  • Vonn

    Harvey does not care about that apology, the story is already out. Clifford complaining about it is just drawing more attention the TMZ & Harvey is loving it.

  • Vonn

    Absolutely.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Exactly. Whenever anyone dies we want to know why. Shitt they don't even have to be famous. We wanna know!

  • tia

    absolutely! My condolences to TI, but now he's acting all brand new. Boy please... go somewhere and grieve in peace.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Very True!

  • Connie

    I don't even think it was "retracted." TMZ just listed out her accomplishments then said "sorry for posting the ME's finding"

  • Connie

    I just said something to this effect. I caught the slickness

  • Kae

    So Precious was off the coke with a kid in the car! Whew Chile... you never know!

  • Wreckognize Game

    Probably because TI created that scholarship in her name and he doesn’t want to tarnish that. She was sweet though.

  • Topic Influencer

    People are truly in their feelings. Where was the outrage when TMZ posted last month about Clarke Gable's grandson dying from overdose? Now its it shouldnt have been run bc she was his sister, she wasnt a celeb, and they profit off of people's pain.

    Any other time people hate Tip's ever lasting black ass here. Just was dragging the purity fukk outta him AND his wife yesterdayyyyyy. They aint raising their kids right. They put everything on display. Now its oh the kids and this should be kept private. Let me go. I caint.

  • MsSapphire9800

    He has nothing on Harvey...TMZ put the word out and every blog has posted it...some still have it up...Harvey don't care about no damn TI and his empty threats. Although I dislike TMZ because of their communities is prejudice as hell...they have never posted a false story about someone's death.

  • Topic Influencer

    Baby. BAYBEEE. I just posted that under one of Carrington's posts. Get out my MIND

  • Chicagowise

    "Precious, 66, was driving T.I.'s Dodge Challenger with his grandniece, Kiari Chapman, in the passenger seat when she suddenly lost consciousness..."

    Instead of worrying about TMZ, he should thank his lucky stars that his ridiculous sister did kill his grand-niece or someone else, for that matter.

  • Guest

    Oh well! It's out there. Let's move on. RIP Precious. New post!

  • Carrington

    Right? We needed to know why Kim Porter died and people didn't give a F*CK that her son lost his MOTHER when they blasted him because he was smiling on instagram "too soon" after her death and didn't look as sad as THEY needed him to look. And that was his MOTHER. But TIP deserves respect for his SISTER?

  • Chicagowise

    Rappers who preach positivity and unity, can barely get any radio play or any other forms of attention. Rap about being a wh@re or murdering your brother and they'll reward you handsomely.

  • MsSapphire9800

    Its very odd. Like I said any other time its death to Tip, Tiny, and all of their damn generations here on this blog. Im normally the Lone Ranger in defending them. He is hurt. I totally get it. But all the folks who are riding for him on this I am side eye'n the hell out of right now bc what HAPPENED in the past TWENTY FOUR HOURS? This SAME time yesterday was the Tiny/Tip post.

  • Curtis

    Tip was an enabler who financed his sister's coke habit which is very expensive and couldn't afford on her own. TMZ just reported what was in coroner's report and that's their business.

  • Elevated Soul

    Now isn't that special....A drug dealer getting upset that someone who happens to be his sister,died from drugs.TI often make it his business to speak on everything but he wants this info to be held quiet.

  • Carrington

    I like Tiny and Tip together (although I hate that she keeps letting him embarrass her) I love their little family together... but I hate "conscious and woke" TIP because he just comes across as fake and dumb asf most times.

    I ALSO understand why this is information that he would've wanted kept quiet. I honestly do because I'd want my sister's 66 years on earth to be as spotless as possible if it were within my control to HAVE control over that narrative, so, they have my deepest sympathy and I definitely empathize with them... but when you use and manipulate the media for financial gain by making sure we know you and Tiny broke up right before the new season of your show begins, you can't get mad when Harvey uses people's $hit to line his pockets too.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. Harvey got the publicity and clicks on his site for the original story (which is what it's all about)... then he posts the apology and gets more attention and more clicks on that. So in his mind it's probably a win-win either way. He's not pressed about this at all. He's moved on to the next story.

  • T3

    Whaaaaattt????? I missed that. He definitely has a type lol

  • Curtis

    Will Smith sold platinum records and summer time is still being played in radio and cookouts.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. When you live your life in the public eye (and have gotten rich off it) then this type of thing comes with the territory. You gotta take the good with the bad.

  • Topic Influencer

    They werent privy to the information that their mama/aunt supposedly willingly participates in threesomes either but hey its out there. Whole lot of stuff those kids were not privy to but it was reported (either formally or a real news story) and nobody batted an eye. Nobody been caring about what is said about their family and how it impacts the kids in their fam. In fact a poster here yesterday pointed out all of his Irish triplets by name and called her a dumb ass for accepting her stepkids. I dont think the fake caring about the Harris/Chapman children should start today.

    If anything ever happens to me, I need one of y'all to go to my house... there's a key tied to the root of the peach tree in the backyard. Go in the back door, go upstairs to my room. In the back of my closet there is a panel behind my work suits that will shift to the left if you knock three times.

    Inside that panel there is a shoe box, and next to that, some Vaseline and a crusty towel, or two... knock three more times so the panel will close.

    Take the box and towels and Vaseline to the dumpster and burn them. Do NOT look inside. Do this as soon after my passing as possible. I'm going to walk slow toward the light to give y'all time. I need that box gone before my mama's nosy a$$ gets to my house and, in case Gawd decides to ramble through my house before he decides whether he's going to usher me in. Thanks in advance.

    Bruh, I think almost everybody's got some skeletons they'd rather not have found out. I remember when a friend of a friend passed away and her relatives were cleaning out her room, they found a bunch of sex toys hidden in a drawer. Her family members were super-embarrassed about it. But I figured hey, it could have been worse. It's not like they found child/animal porn or anything illegal.

    Woooooooow now I would have never in a million years took her for a drug user and I know that sounds crazy because you do have ppl out here who don’t look like addicts but from all the pics and clips I’ve seen her in she always seemed calm and sweet not that hyperactive high strung on edge personality you get with cocaine users I’m really at a loss here. Plus her daughter posted something about an asthma attack back when all this happened ????? Lord have mercy

    She looked like a crack head sorry to have to say that. Her fake teeth said it all and that smile. I knew it was something behind her smile and always wearing those glasses. TIP should be mad at himself for not getting her help!!!!

  • currvalicious

    Same thing I thought. She had such a close relationship w/them & their children. It's hard to hide drug usage like that.

    I was turned off by this. She's not a public figure, she's just related to one. And she already died a horrific
    death as it is. Why go out of your way to tarnish her memory. TMZ cross the line plain and simple, but this is not the first time probably won't be the last but it's still wrong.

  • Coffee1st

    All of them deserve privacy and respect. No reports on anyone's private life should be made public after they die.
    A family is somewhere missing and grieving over their deceased while folks who didn't even know them are regurgitating irrelevant opinions and making fuct-up comments. Death is too final and grievous for this thoughtlessness.

    I’m sorry if this sounds insensitive but I wish T.I would go sit his ass down, because nobody has nothing to say when it’s somebody else business being put out there but want sympathy when it’s theres

  • JENNYJONES1

    LIKE HIS SHOW DIDN'T PROFIT FROM THE EPISODE AIRING HER DEATH............JENNY JONES!!!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    This is sad on many levels! I see TMZ said they were wrong to post her cause of death, which opened up the discussion of who’s cause of death show be revealed!

    I have always felt that this is none of our business, unless there was foul play! I don’t like to see TMZ or news outlets play 911 calls!

    It’s sad that she was doing drugs with all the good she did for others, the love, success and money they all enjoyed!

    I realize drugs are pain-killers. She hadn’t healed her painful wounds at her age is sad, and not uncommon!

  • Mo Laughz

    There was no context provided outside of the substance being present. How do you know she was high? Cocaine can stay in your system for a week. TMZ is celebrity news not channel 2 action news. She was a private citizen who didn't take a job that involves being a public figure. She didn't deserve to be publicly dragged by an international conglomerate.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Well her daughter posted something about an asthma attack and it was reported that she had been sick prior to this I think they thought ppl were just going to roll with that and nothing else would be said about it BUT ol Harvey said but wait there’s more!????? Cuz honestly I wasn’t even thinking about the COD or the report I really believe it was asthma related or that she was sick before the accident they had me fooled!

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    We had all said though that puffy would see to it if it was drugs that that info NEVER seen the light of day! We were told the flu and the flu is what we will ever know. TI should have paid his dues if he didn’t want that info out they said it was asthma or she was sick prior to the accident he should have paid to see to it that that’s what got reported and recorded

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Ti’s mad! He wanted it kept quiet that she was a coke head! Sad she had the grandniece in the car!!

    Tea eye jess hush....TMZ has been doin trashy reporting for years. The only reason Tip is speaking out is because the “Tea” is about is Aunt and the coke toxicity being exposed. It ain profiting it’s reporting. They went after Auntie just like Tip went after Kodak went Nip passed.

  • Topic Influencer

    Cocaine use to induce arrhythmia or an all out major life ending heart attack, normally happens within the first hour after use. Risk is upped mpre than 24 times the norm. So its far fetched that it was could have been old coke in her system that caused it. Folks should Stop trying to defend this lady drug use. It is what it is. RIP to her but naw

    Even though I thought it was totally unnecessary for TMZ to post it they are doing what gossip blogs do...Gossip. I get that he's hurt and I'm glad he got them to take it down but that unfortunately this is a trade off for being rich and famous mous. A loss of privacy.

  • Mo Laughz

    Not making excuses. She did cocaine period beyond the circumstances. However her privacy was grossly violated, if TMZ felt they HAD to run the story, they could have done it to raise awareness, since she dedicated her life to philanthropy while she was living. Kinda like Sandra's shady "media minute" pieces she does on this blog.

  • Mo Laughz

    TMZ is a far cry from some lil ol gossip rag, it's an international media conglomerate. Now someone in Belgium is reading about TI's crackhead sister. Shameful, this had to have been a dig at him, he pissed someone somewhere off for this to come out in such grand fashion.

  • Yetunde

    TMZ will always report the cause of death of a celebrity. Why is it different now? I can’t stand TI.

  • EMILY POST

    That photo didn’t save her life that photo almost ruined both of their careers.
    Lol there were no public backlash... they said some critical words ... about both of them..
    I remember how the media treated them both they were saying they were rewarding bad behavior by allow her to perform afterwards also.
