No Thanksgiving celebration for T.I. The rapper has changed his mind and had his lawyers withdrawn his request to host a Thanksgiving dinner at his Jonesboro home as he awaits trial on federal weapons charges.
Lawyers for T.I. has on Tuesday November 6th filed two motions asking a judge to allow the Atlanta rapper to have visitors at his house on Thanksgiving as he's under 24-hour house arrest while waiting trial on allegations that he attempted to illegally purchase three machine guns and two silencers and possessing a cache of weapons in his Atlanta mansion.
The motions filed by his lawyers reportedly carried in it the list of T.I.'s family members to approve to visit the star's house for Thanksgiving on November 22nd from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., under the supervision of a current monitoring service.
According to The Associated Press, T.I.'s lawyers dropped their request Thursday November 8th because of the strong opposition they faced from prosecutors. The prosecutors argued that T.I. is seeking special treatment and since his release has 'submitted a list of 95 names of requested visitors' which makes it difficult for court officials to conduct background checks on each individual.
T.I. is charged with illegally purchasing machine guns and silencers in an Atlanta parking lot, hours before the BET Awards on October 13th. He's been pleaded not guilty and is currently freed on $3 million bond.
