Clifford Harris, aka T.I., will be confined to the new mansion he paid over $3 million for last year. The mansion located in Jonesboro, is a 3-story 6 bedroom, 8 bath mansion that sits on 1.7 acres offering stunning lake views, a swimming pool, dock and boathouse. It will afford him more room and luxury than the smaller residence that the feds ran up in 2 weeks ago in search of guns.
Earlier, I incorrectly stated that T.I.'s mom was living in his former digs. The truth is it isn't clear whether the judge ordered her out of the mansion or T.I.'s former home. What is known is that T.I. couldn't return to that residence since the address was made public by news organizations.
T.I. will be monitored 24 hours a day by a private monitoring service that he must pay for. That monitor will search visitors who are on a list pre-approved by the judge.
He is restricted to the home except under limited circumstances, including medical appointments and court appearances. He cannot own any firearms and cannot have contact with any witnesses or informants in the case.
Tameka "Tiny" Cottle gave a brief statement to SOHH Gyant as she left the courtroom today, saying she was "happy" that T.I. was freed. In addition to Tiny, T.I.'s mother, other family members, Grand Hustle execs, and rapper Young Dro were in the courtroom.
T.I.'s trial is reportedly set to begin in one week meaning he may only have a short time to enjoy the comforts of home.
