T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle debuted quite rough, but then things have settled along the way. Things were finally in a good place for both Tiny and T.I. but another argument hit them during yesterday’s episode of the show.
In the show, they are still not living together and this triggered a lack of communication when it comes to co-parenting their son King Harris.
The kid started getting failing grades and he also disrespected his teachers at his new school, so Tip decided to step up.
T.I. punished his son by keeping him away from all other outside activities.
The timing was far from being the best one, as Tiny Harris was in the middle of planning a family commercial for her and Heiress Harris and the commercial would not be the same without all the kids.
Tiny asked Tip to allow King to take part in the clip. Here’s what he said:
‘You have to institute consequences for that kind of behavior. And that kind of poor performance.’
Tiny became frustrated, and admitted in her confessional that ‘Co-parenting can be pretty hard.’
She continued and explained that ‘Sometimes there’s issues when we don’t agree on the punishment or whatever it is when we’re co-parenting. Sometimes I let him have his way, but sometimes I’m gonna fight back because, as far as his punishment…it’s not warranted.’
Tip also said that ‘His first year of high school is incredibly important. If he begins to fall behind, he’s going to bleed over into 10th and bleed over into 11th, and stuff will be so stacked up on him. We can’t allow him to do that.’
Tiny even begged to let King be part of the commercial, but T.I responded, ‘The decision is final. That’s it.’
