Rapper T.I. won't be back for Marvel's third Ant-Man movie as new sexual assault allegations threaten to destroy his career
The Hollywood Reporter's sources claim the father-of-seven will not be returning as sidekick Dave in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
The news comes after the rap star and his wife, Tameka "Tiny" Harris, were accused of sexual abuse by as many as 30 women.
On Monday, Mar. 1, an attorney representing 11 alleged victims accused the couple of crimes including sexual abuse, forced ingestion of illegal narcotics, kidnapping, false imprisonment, intimidation, assault and harassment.
The attorney, Tyrone A. Blackburn is asking authorities in California and Georgia to open criminal investigations into the Atlanta power couple.
T.I. and Tiny have strongly denied the accusations through their defense attorney, Steve Sadow, who writes: "Clifford (T.I.) and Tameka Harris (Tiny) deny in the strongest possible terms these unsubstantiated and baseless allegations. We are confident that if these claims are thoroughly and fairly investigated, no charges will be forthcoming."
Meanwhile, VH1 bosses suspended production of the reality TV show T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle last month, when the claims against the couple first came to light.
