T.I. Denies Allegations He Asked for $40,000 to Attend Slain Kid’s Funeral
T.I. is putting an end to the allegations about him demanding $40,000 to attend a slain pre-teen's funeral.
"#LIES ain't nobody contacted me for no such thing. Let alone me charge someone to attend a funeral," read Tip's Instagram post. "What people should do is be aware of who they're contacting & not believe every Tom Dick & Hank who says they're connected. BUT I'd appreciate it if y'all could quit wit da [poop emoji].... I been in dis game too long... Check my resume' I've payed for funerals & sent kids to college... Charging 40k to attend a funeral ain't even in my repertoire.... #KnockItOFF"
The allegations came by way of Celebrity XO, who shared a post by Deztany Bishop, who accused the Atlanta rhymer of asking for cash to attend the funeral of 12-year-old Jajuaj Latham, who was killed in a gang-related shooting in Knoxville, Tennessee.
But now Bishop is changing her tune -- hopefully after speaking with someone from T.I.'s camp.
"It was a big misunderstanding - I'm so sorry T.I. for going in on you I hope you will find it in your heart to forgive us in accept our apologies," read her latest post.
T.I. is known for giving back to his community -- he even came to the defense of a New York teen who was being tried after releasing a mixtape. Tip's Instagram bio, #JusticeForSandraBland, shows his passion for shedding light on wrongdoings as well.
