Call it a marriage of convenience. Rapper T.I. and his talented wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, have been together for almost two decades.
The pair has had their share of marital problems including public disputes and cheating allegations.
While most couples hide their issues or lie about them, Tiny and T.I have been an open book.
The couple, who shares seven children between them, has addressed such personal matters on social media, in their music, and on their reality show, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.
They have made it clear their romance is unique and no matter what comes their way it stands the test of time.
And by the looks of things that is what is currently unfolding in front of our eyes.
One year ago, as the tabloids were running stories about T.I. having a torrid affair with a mature woman, mother of two and model Bernice Burgos, Tiny decided to throw in the towel and file for divorce.
However, six months after she had started the divorce process, Tiny through therapy, and her faith decided to begin anew with the famous ATL actor.
Now a friend of the Xscape songstress claimed she is not staying with her husband of seven years because of love but rather out a fear of causing pain to her children.
A person, who is very close to Tiny, spoke to Hollywood life and shared the following details: “Tiny’s really over her marriage from TIP, and the real reason why she’s completely scared of divorcing him is that she doesn’t want to put her children on an emotional roller coaster. TIP’s so controlling, even with the kids. He thinks he’s the smartest man on earth who knows everything and believes that what he says goes.”
The friend of the Harris clan continued: “The last thing Tiny wants to do is fight TIP for custody and visitation, and she certainly doesn’t want the kids to have to choose who they want to be with more. Had it not been for her children, she’d have gotten rid of TIP years ago. One thing is for sure though; she’s over T.I.”
At least, they seemed determined to make it work.
