The second sequel in the Marvel Ant-Man franchise will go forth without T.I. Variety reports the currently controversial star was never considered to be in the third film.
T.I. appeared alongside Michael Pena in a crew of men that would help the superhero Scott Lang, played by Paul Rudd. Disney sources state the rapper was never on tap to return and the decision had nothing to do with current controversies surrounding T.I. and his wife Tiny.
On Monday, attorney Tyrone A. Blackburn revealed the list of sexual abuse allegations by six anonymous women, which included drugging, kidnapping, and rape.
A lawyer for the couple released a statement:
“Clifford (T.I.) and Tameka Harris 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,” Sadow said. “These allegations are nothing more than the continuation of a sordid shakedown campaign that began on social media. The Harrises implore everyone not to be to be taken in by these obvious attempts to manipulate the press and misuse the justice system.”
