Actress Asia’h Epperson is blasting T.I. for inappropriately touching her butt in a viral video that almost led to the end of his marriage to singer Tameka “Tiny” Harris.
In the summer of 2018, a video surfaced showing T.I. slapping Asia’h’s booty backstage at a concert.
The actress and singer was called every name in the book for getting so close to a married man.
Tiny and her millions of fans were quick to go after her for her sinful action, and T.I. was not spared in the bashing sessions.
This week, the Greenleaf actress decided to share her side of the story and blame T.I. for the messy incident.
Asia’h said she never dated Tiny’s husband: “Let me be clear, the accusations of me having a relationship with that man, being a “side chic,” a “homewrecker” or whatever else ya’ll wanna call me, is absolutely positively 100% FALSE!!”
A commenter asked Asia’h, according to a long thread shared on The Shade Room: “So she was the one in the video with T.I. smacking her on the butt?”

Family out tonight in honor of my handsome husband @troubleman31 as he’s the first to receive the Xernona Clayton Trumpet Award!

Asia’h mentioned the #metoo movement and said she never asked and wanted T.I.P. to touch her and she should have smacked him for what he did.
She added: “Yeah yeah! That was me! He smacked me on the butt! I didn’t know I had control over that mans choices. We are friends and he shouldn’t of done that. That was too touch feely and flirty for a married man. Had no idea that was about to happen. Wrong place wrong time. … I guess I was supposed to turn around and smack him? Start a whole ‘me too’ movement!!? Confused on the reaction the public expected e to have in that moment.”
When asked why didn’t she slap T.I. for touching her without her permission, she confessed: “Sounds that simple right?. However, the truth is, everyone can say what they think should have happened. … But in reality, no one knows how they would handle a situation until you’re in it! … Lesson learned.”
