If you were on the list for Thanksgiving dinner at T.I.'s house, you will have to make other plans. The rap star is currently confined to his Atlanta home and monitored 24-7 while he awaits trial on federal gun charges. Under the terms of his release, background checks must be run on visitors and they must undergo a search to enter the premises. He is also restricted to only three visitors at a time.
Born Clifford Harris Jr., T.I. , according the ajc.com, had asked the federal courts to approve an exception to this rule to allow him to host a Thanksgiving dinner at his home. While it's unclear just how many people he wanted to have over for dinner, prosecutors say that he's asked for approval for 95 visitors.
"The defendant is asking this Court for the very kind of special treatment to which this Court made clear the defendant was not entitled," federal prosecutors said in response to T.I.'s request.
Apparently T.I. is getting a little antsy at home, as he's also asked for approval for maintenance workers to come clean his house, yard and pool.
"His constant requests for more visitors, recent complaints about "delays" in the approval of visitors, and requests for maintenance workers and a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with "family" show that the defendant does not ... appreciate the generosity of the Court in granting his release...."
T.I.'s lawyers withdrew the request two days after it was made, saying "In light of the government's opposition, said motion is withdrawn."
