Too Short says his accuser is only after money.
Last Friday, news broke that Too Short was being sued for sexual battery by a woman named Teana Louis. She claims that after working on music together, Short started making unwarranted advances and he sexually assaulted her on multiple occasions in 2016. However, Too Short is completely denying the allegations and is now looking to countersue Louis for slander.
In an encounter with TMZ, Too Short said the lawsuit being filed against him is in an attempt to extort him. According to him, the allegations are purely fabricated and are nothing but an attempt to get money out of his pockets.
"The way I feel man, this is blatant, outright extortion. I'm being extorted. It's not a criminal case, it's something that stems from over a year a go." He said, "It's a lie man. It could only be extortion. It's not anything else."
He continued to say that the reason she's suing is because at the time he wanted to sign her, things didn't work out. And the lawsuit is merely a vengeful act. He also said they never had sex but they did indulge in foreplay.
Short later went onto speak on the women involved in the #MeToo movement.
"I'm pretty sure these women are telling the God's honest truth but there's a few out there who are trying to do the money grab," he said, "I just feel like if those of you out there are lying, you're messing up the movement for everybody else. So you know, it doesn't make sense."
Too Short is now planning to countersue Louis for slander and is also seeking to get a restraining order against her.
