Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris legally lashed out at the woman who alleges he put a gun to her head and threatened to kill her.

Sabrina Peterson is suing T.I. and his wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris for defamation, but in new legal documnents obtained by TMZ, T.I. is asking a judge to throw her defamation lawsuit out of court.

T.I. claims Peterson's reputation is already so scandalous, that it's impossible to harm her reputation any further.

As TMZ reported, in her lawsuit filed earlier this year, Peterson claims T.I. and Tiny smeared her good name with public statements and social media posts.

However, the rapper's lawyer, Andrew Brettler, claims Peterson "is an adjudged liar, a convicted felon with a lengthy rap sheet for crimes involving dishonesty and violent assault, and has a reputation for being unscrupulous."

Additionally Brettler says there's no way T.I. and Tiny could besmirch Peterson's already sullied reputation.

According to Peterson's lawsuit, Tiny referred to Peterson on social media as "strange," and added, "everybody know you been special."

Peterson claims she has since become the target of online harassment and threatening messages, but T.I. claims she can't sue over those comments because they are just opinions.

T.I. retained Brettler because he is admitted to try cases in California, where Peterson lives. T.I.'s longtime attorney, Atlanta-based Steven Sadow, is only licensed to practice law in Georgia.

Defamation, also known as slander, is more difficult to prove because it is usually uttered as an opinion.

Memphitz and K Michelle

Studio background singer and mixtape artist K. Michelle has repeatedly accused music producer MempHitz of physically abusing her and stealing her limited recording budget to buy gold chains and weed.

But MemPhitz, who is married to Lil Wayne's baby mama, Toya Wright, says the lies told by K. Michelle has not affected his marriage. This is evidenced by the fact that Toya has never called her friends to come pick her up from the emergency room like K. Michelle claims she had to do while she was with Memphitz.

MempHitz filed a slander lawsuit to set the record straight, and to attach any of K. Michelle's future earnings.
