Yesterday afternoon in Atlanta, TI talked a suicidal jumper off the roof of a 22-story hotel.
Anyway, TI spoke with CNN's Don Lemon this afternoon. Although he has been advised by his lawyers not to speak on tomorrow's court proceedings, he did address the controversy saying, "you would have to believe I talked a man onto a roof in order to talk him down." Wait, is so far-fetched? Anywho, he said he believes he was put on this earth for a purpose, apologized to those he has disappointed and promised to turn his life around.
"Never again, ever," he said. "I'm just tired. I don't have the age, energy, attitude to continue on in this process of destruction in my life."
We wonder what the judge thinks about this PR stunt, ahem, selfless deed. He'll most certainly be sent back to jail, but for how long? The judge will decide tomorrow.
Update, Oct. 15: In court this afternoon, TI pleaded with the judge for leniency. He also admitted that he needs help for drug addiction. The prosecutor, on the other hand, asked the judge to send the rapper back to jail for two years!
