The mother of the man who threatened a suicide jump credited rapper T.I. with saving her son’s life, and says her son’s problems are real.
“I wish it was a publicity stunt, and that my son wasn’t hurting as bad as he is,” the woman told radio station V-103 during an interview Thursday. “Thank God for T.I.”
T.I. (real name Clifford Harris) is in court today to face probation violation charges stemming from his recent drug arrest. I’ve heard that the prosecutor is trying to label him as a “Level 4 offender” meaning he could get the maximum jail time they are seeking. In the meantime, Tip has been billed as a hero after his encouraging words thwarted the alleged suicide attempt, as he brought a distraught young man down from a 22-story Atlanta building.
