This morning, TMZ reported that T.I.'s sister Precious died from "cocaine toxicity which aggravated hypertensive cardiovascular disease (high blood pressure)."
Precious had been driving with her grandniece in February when she became unconscious, veered off the road and crashed into a telephone pole. She never regained consciousness and died in the hospital. It was initially reported that she suffered an asthma attack.
T.I. was not happy with this new revelation and aired the gossip website out for leaking the medical examiner's findings.
“And as long as you’ve known me Harvey, I’ve been respectful, I’ve been cordial, I been polite, I been kind, I been fair … you just burned that bridge,” he says in the video. “I hope your story was worth it. You just burned a bridge. To not just me, but everybody around me. All my family. Anybody who stand wit me, anybody who stood wit Precious … will not stand wit you.
“That go for the Deltas [sorority], I need all ya’ll, stand the fuck up, ok? That go for all the children in the communities that she taught, she mentored, ok? That go for all the generations, from 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s.”
TMZ responded by apologizing for posting the M.E.'s findings and listing a lot of the good deeds Precious, who was 66 when she died, did when she was alive.
