Drew Taggart not just telling stories when he confesses to a small argument with TIEN Less than a day after Drew shared the story on Tik Tok, TI has responded to the claims. First, he took to Instagram Live to talk about what happened. Although he confirmed an interaction with Drew, he did not admit to punching him. Instead, TI said it was “A little joke.” However, he still seemed to be tickled by the whole ordeal.
“I actually just got out of bed and got this s**t sent to me. Yes, man, they all need me in the news cycle. I convinced the man, like every three-week man, it was something else,” TI said between laughs. “First of all, I love The Chainsmokers, so let’s get this straight. I have nothing negative to say… we just had to work on something and we worked through it. We went to a much better place. I have nothing but good things to say about them. Good people.”
As previously reported, The Chainsmokers member shared a minute-long clip explaining that TI punched him in the face. The interaction takes place in a club scene. Drew said he “felt the vibes so hard” as he leaned down and kissed TI on the cheek.
The Atlanta artist responded by shoving Drew away and delivering a punch to the face. Drew explained that after he apologized, everything was fine. However, he called the moment “the weirdest interaction ever” and said TI was “Exactly” for reaction.
TI Expresses Love To The Chainsmokers But Says He Doesn’t Care About “Sugar”
Although TI lasted about 17 minutes on Instagram Live, he only spent a small portion of it addressing the interaction. He has reiterated his love for The Chainsmokers and their music over and over again. However, he made it clear that things between him and Drew had ended well.
“I think the most important thing to take away is after that. We had a drink, we took a shot. And we move on, everyone leaving the party, having a good time. “
“Like I said, love The Chainsmokers… not without sugar. No no no, mhm mhm, no buddy, no. Can’t play like that, but love the music and still be a fan.”
TI also explained that he would love to have The Chainsmokers on his podcast clear with Tip TI Harris.
“I would love to have you on clear if you can find time for us to sit down and cut it. I want to kick it with you if you have some time on your hands, catch the vibe. “
TI says interacting with Drew is not a punchline but “a little skirmish”
As the live video draws to a close, TI returns to the “punch” aspect of Drew’s narrative time. He asked people to stop saying he “punched someone”.
“And the way you keep saying I punched someone, it’s not… you stop, you stop it. We had a little quarrel,” TI said. “It’s nothing. It’s like a mother stepping over a line, you’re like a man to you, you step over that line, back off. And he backs up the line appropriately and everyone continued with the evening. That’s it. It’s not no big deal. It’s not malicious.”
