You would have to be living under a HUGE very undisturbed ROCK if you have not heard the SEXUAL ABUSE allegations levied upon rapper T.I. and his wife Tiny Harris. In the EVENT you missed that story, you can get up to speed HERE!
Now it appears that the SHOCKWAVES from this ordeal has put a HALT on the ‘HUSTLE’ side of things. Production for their HIT VH-1 reality show has HALTED amid these ALLEGATIONS!
A spokesperson for MTV Entertainment issued a statement to Deadline about the allegations:
“We are aware of the allegations, and while they are not connected to our show, we have reached out to T.I. and Tameka Harris, as well as local and state officials. Given the serious nature of the allegations, we have decided to suspend production in order to gather more information.”
Citing sources close to the situation, the decision was jointly made by both VH1 and the Harris clan.
If you did not hear before, the NEWLY- configured working on the show that features, Toya Wright, Monica, and LeToya Luckett and their respective families was GREEN LIT for a season 4, but that has been put on HOLD and the premiere PUSHED BACK until these ALLEGATIONS are investigated by the powers that be.
We will keep you posted on what happens. I really LIKE the show and the Harris clan so let’s hope these allegations are just THAT.
So HOPEFULLY these matters will get WORKED OUT and the show can go back into production soon.
