MTO News has learned that one of the female accusers said TI's pal, rapper Nelly (pictured 2nd from left), sexually abused her.
According to documents obtained by MTO, in 2014, TI and Tiny forced a woman to have sexual intercourse with rapper Nelly against her will.
Nelly, 46, recently settled a lawsuit by a different woman who claimed that he sexually assaulted her on his tour bus.
Nelly, a Grammy Award-winning rapper, is best known for his 2002 rap hit "Hot in Herre." His 2000 album Country Grammar sold over 8 million copies.
Nelly was dropped as spokesman for Honey Nut Cheerios following the allegations of sex assault.
The latest allegations may threaten his partnership with PepsiCo's Lay's Flamin' Hot chips.

Rapper T.I. and his wife Tiny were hit with a defamation lawsuit by Sabrina Peterson, the longtime family friend who claimed he put a gun to her head in 2009.
Peterson sued Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr., 40, and his wife, Tameka "Tiny” Harris, 45, for using their social media platforms to smear her good name.
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Peterson claims she got into an argument with her former friend, T.I., who then put a gun to her head and told her, "B*tch I'll kill you."
After Peterson, 42, went public with the allegations in January, Tameka posted a photo of T.I. posing with Peterson's 8-year-old son.
Peterson claims Tameka exposed her son to "vitriol and danger."
The post, which has since been deleted, sparked rumors that the boy was fathered by T.I.
T.I. and Tiny's high-powered attorney, Steve Sadow, tells TMZ they "deny in the strong possible terms these unsubstantiated and baseless allegations."
Sadow added, "These allegations are nothing more than the continuation of a sordid shakedown campaign that began on social media." He said T.I. and Tiny "implore everyone not to be taken in by these obvious attempts to manipulate the press and misuse the justice system."
In related news, a NY-based attorney sent letters to federal prosecutors in two states asking them to investigate allegations of drugging and sex abuse lodged by at least 11 women.
Attorney Tyrone A. Blackburn told the New York Times that the women were drugged, raped or sexually assaulted by the Harrises or those in their inner circle of friends and associates.

The Internet is buzzing about actress Camille Winbush baring her goodies for money on OnlyFans.
The 31-year-old actress is a fully grown woman, but her fans still see her as "Nessa", the cute teenage daughter on "The Bernie Mac Show," starring the late comedian.
Camille is among the many actors who were hardest hit when the movie and TV industry shut down during the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. Many actors were forced to dip into their savings to make ends meet.
But Camille apparently exhausted her savings and now she's on OnlyFans, stripping for cash. Some celebrities earn an average of $250,000 per month on OnlyFans.
Fans expressed their disappointment on social media when Camille's OnlyFans images were leaked.
"Oh, no! Not Nessa!" shrieked one fan on Twitter.
Another fan wrote in Bernie Mac's voice: "america look at nessa."
While a third Twitter user wrote in Bernie's voice: "Look at this America! Nessa out here on only fans. I tell you America you teach this kids the right way and still don't learn- Bernie Mac."
Bernie Mac died on August 9, 2008 following a long illness. He was 50.
Kobe Bryant's widow Vanessa Bryant took aim at actress Evan Rachel Wood and other critics who branded the late sports icon a "rapist" following his tragic death last year.
Kobe and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, died in a fiery helicopter crash along with 7 others in Calabasas, California in foggy conditions in January 2020.
Vanessa had time over the weekend, so she searched through old social media posts for critics who accused Kobe of being a rapist.
Wood and film producer Abigail Disney were among the activists to remind fans about his July 2003 sexual assault case.
The married basketball star was accused of forcing himself on a 19-year-old female hotel employee in Colorado. The case was later settled out of court and Kobe publicly apologized to his accuser.
At the time of his death in a helicopter crash, Evan Rachel Wood posted on social media, "What has happened is tragic. I am heartbroken for Kobe's family. He was a sports hero. He was also a rapist. And all of these truths can exist simultaneously."
The tweet caused an uproar at the time, but more than a year later, Vanessa dug up the tweet, and fired back at Wood.
"This just came to my attention," she wrote across a screenshot of Wood's post, which she shared on her Instagram Story timeline on Saturday.
"Your false, insensitive, defamatory and slanderous tweet on 1/26/20 is vile and disturbing to say the least. Behavior like this is part of the reason why innocent black men go to jail for crimes they didn't commit. An accusation doesn't make someone guilty. YOU DON'T KNOW THE FACTS OF THE CASE."
Vanessa also posted a similarly-worded message to Abigail Disney, who, shortly after Kobe's death, told her Twitter followers: "The man was a rapist. Deal with it."
Vanessa's followers were confused and baffled by her response to old tweets.
Vanessa has been very active on social media since Kobe’s death. Kobe was very adamant that she devote her time to homemaking and raising their children.
Comedienne, actress and "Windy City Live" contributor Erica Faye Watson has died. She was 48.
The Chicago native's brother said she died Saturday after she was diagnosed with Covid-19. Her cause of death was not confirmed by a coroner, but Watson was morbidly obese.
Morbid obesity is a risk factor for Covid-19, along with heart disease, diabetes, smoking, HIV, and respiratory disorders such as asthma.
Watson died in Jamaica where she moved during the Covid-19 breakout in the United States in 2020.
She was a contributor on ABC7's Windy City Live, and appeared in the Oscar nominated film "Precious" and “ChiRaq."
"Erica was loved and adored by just so many people. She had such a vibrant, vivacious spirit," her agent, April Williams, told WBBM. "I really hope and am praying that she knew what a gem to Chicago she was and how proud we were of her."
She also hosted "Night Cap with Erica" as "Miss Poundcakes" on her YouTube channel. She talked about Black Americans who have made their exit from America and moved to Jamaica permanently on her "BLAXIT to Jamaica" episode (see below) and join their private BLAXIT Facebook group.

Dare I say Bambi is submissive, obedient and minds her manners?

She responded, "First of all, that's a crazy question to ask somebody."

Eddie Murphy is considering a return to music -- but never with raunchy rapper Megan Thee Stallion.
In the March 11 episode of Tamron Hall, Eddie -- who appears with his daughter Bella -- talked about the much-anticipated sequel Coming 2 America, which premieres on March 5 on Amazon Prime.
Tamron asked him if he would ever consider recording new music. The comedian peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with his Rick James-produced club hit "Party All the Time" in 1985.
According to Eddie, if he ever did go back into the studio, it wouldn't be with rapper Megan Thee Stallion.
"Megan Thee Stallion?! I'm 59, I can't be doing nothing with no Megan Thee Stallion," he laughs. "You know how crazy I would look doing something with Megan Thee Stallion? I'm gonna be 60 in April. I can't be having Megan Thee Stallion doing her stuff and I'm standing next to her with my old ass playing my guitar.
"I have my first grandchild," he adds of his son Miles' baby girl. "Once you're a grandpa, you can't do no tracks with Megan Thee Stallion."
Tyrese Gibson is already tired of living alone in his Buckhead mansion after splitting from his long-suffering wife, Samantha Lee Gibson.
The 42-year-old Capricorn is going through yet another emotional upheaval in his life.
The "Fast & Furious" star's wife recently filed for divorce. They share a 2-year-old daughter, Soraya.
In an emotional post on Instagram, Tyrese begged God for forgiveness and for an end to the single life:
"With a healing heart I post this..... I am sorry for my sins and sorry for anything I've ever done to anyone rather I'm aware of it or not I just hope you find it in your heart to forgive me..... I have not met my BEST self yet and I know it.... I can't wait to meet the NEW ME!!!!! This single life hits different especially since I could of never ever seen this coming...... Ever.... Back to the basics.... What's your name? Where you from? Who yo momma nem? What you do? What's your credit score? Jesus or Nah? Lol #TheVibes"
The Bible says an apology cannot stand alone. It must be coupled with true contrition, repentance and humility. "The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise."
DaBaby and DaniLeigh are back on the market after realizing their mistake and going their separate ways.
DaniLeigh skyrocketed to fame in February 2016, after she posted a cover of "Down in the DM" by rapper Yo Gotti.
In December, the rapper and R&B singer went public with their relationship. But the chemical attraction fizzled after just two months.
While DaBaby was silent on their breakup, DaniLeigh wants her feelings known.
The 26-year-old singer took to Twitter to explain her mistake in detail this week.
"Can't wait to be disconnected to that situation.... in due time... We all human.. we all make mistakes when we in love and dumb.. but it's all about growing [for real] .. so I'll take my lessons and keep goin .. even with all the hate I receive it's fine… in due time."
By "hate", she's referring to the catfight she had with DaBaby's baby mama, MeMe, on social media.
MeMe claimed she was never intimated by DaniLeigh's masculine beauty.
"I'm not intimidated by no b*tch when it comes to a n*gga I was with for real. It ain't no smoke, it ain't no nothing, like, honestly that sh*t is nothing new," she said in a video. "You know how many b*tches I don't seen come and go? I hate to say it's normal or it's regular but I mean, it is... I'm not ever worried about no b*tch.
"Plus, I'm secure within myself. I never needeed validation from no n*gga, so I know what I bring to the table. I know what's up with me. I don't know it to have no problem with it [sic]."
DaniLeigh responded, "Lol sad... but ok ..."
Bobby Shmurda teased the ladies with a shirtless photo on his first day after being released from a NY prison after serving six years on gang charges.
In the photo shared on Instagram, Shmurda stripped down to a pair of black Ralph Lauren boxer briefs while admiring himself in a mirror.
The one-hit wonder has been on a whirlwind tour since Migos rapper Quavo sent a private jet to pick him up and bring him to Atlanta.
The New York rapper spent time with his goddaughters, hung out with Rowdy Rebel and Quavo, and dropped $100,000 on a diamond chain and bracelet at Icebox jewelry store in Buckhead.
In an interview with GQ's Frazier Tharpe, Shmurda said he is still getting acclimated to life outside prison walls.
"How long I got in the shower?" he asked his friends -- apparently unaware that his showers are no longer timed.
"My spirit's always gon' be up. I used to sleep next to people who had 40 to life," he told Tharpe. "People who've been in there for 30 years and haven't laughed -- I'd have them crying all day. When you got good energy, no matter where you at, you can bring a smile to someone's face."
Shmurda said he Was treated well in jail thanks to his celebrity status. But he still had to get a job to earn perks.
"Even though I'm locked up all the time, I still live good in jail," he said. "Since [age] 12. You get the best treatment in jail when you get a job. Wanna shower five times a week instead of three? Get a job. Eat better? Get a job. More phone time? Get a job. But they kept firing my ass when they realized I was just doing it to stay on the phone."
