Tiny and T.I. are getting ready to do something they never planned on doing at their age - start dating again.

Now that they have split, the entertainers have to face a new reality, but the petite singer has established some ground rules - no side chicks near her children.

While T.I. has already been dipping into the dating pool with Bernice Burgos, Tiny is said to be taking it slow and spending time with Kandi Burruss.

In July, the hip hop couple would have celebrated their 7th wedding anniversary, but that will not happen because, in the winter of 2016, Tiny filed for divorce.

It has been a rocky road for the parents of 7 who have faced a long list of rumors including infidelity in their union.

Moreover, this week, while promoting the final season of “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle,” the rapper confessed that they are now living in separate homes and hinted that they are seeing other people.

A close source to Tiny spoke to the media and revealed that she has accepted the idea that her estranged husband will date other females, but she does not want them around her children.

T.I. and Tiny have two sons and a daughter together — Clifford “King” Joseph Harris III, Major Philant Harris, and a baby girl named Heiress Diana — as well as four children from previous relationships.

The insider shared: “At this stage, Tiny doesn’t care what TIP does with his life.But the one thing he better not do is bring his groupies around their children! That’s where she draws the line and it will get TIP into a world of trouble if he does. Tiny doesn’t play that game.”

The spy went on to say that she will destroy her husband career if he goes against their wishes.

The individual explained: “No shade, but this isn’t an episode of Love & Hop Hop Atlanta.Tiny will literally single-handedly destroy T.I if she hears, sees, or even thinks that her children are in the presence of any of these women that have helped T.I destroy their marriage.”

The tipster said Tiny, 41, has been feeling depressed since the split and has been spending time with her Xscape bandmate, Kandi Burruss, 40, and they are busy writing songs for their upcoming tour.

The person shared: “Tiny is very depressed, but she’s leaning on her friends, especially Kandi.She’s been at Kandi’s new restaurant every day this week hanging out because she needs to take her mind off the situation with T.I. She brings Heiress and just kicks it, she doesn’t want to be alone.”

Are you surprised by the divorce news?

    He will regret this and his children are watching how their mother's were treated by him. The Bernice chick will get what she deserves too. T I should know that the Instagram model doesnt give a ish about his family, she's trying to become MORE famous and get MORE money. She gives a damn about his children or his happy home. Karma is a snitch!!!

    T.I &Tiny I just hope that you guys just take the time apart to make things stronger between each other. Because you guys can make it if you have God in your lives. I love both of you guys in hope that you all can pull through what ever is going on in your lives. We as African Americans have a real high divorce rates and when you see family that has struggle through what you guys has struggle with in God has pulled you through that he can pull you through anything. Just sit back ignore all the media, friends in family. And just take time to y'all self and lay everything out and ask God for forgiveness and to take all the pain and hurt away. And start finding the Love that y'all saw and each other when y'all felt in Love. Because everyone is in you guys ear saying everything but go with what your heart deserve no matter what no one else think like they never been through things in their lives before. So I just hope that the Love that you guys has for one another conquer all. May God Bless you all in the family.

    T.I cut it out, it's too many broken homes out here for this b.s, married life/relationships are a distraction man that's flat out B.S ,call a spade a spade if you are not interested in tiny then just say that,but to call a relationship in general a distraction is hogwash how do you say that when you are getting it in with the next chic already the average woman wants commitment,also having kids is a relationship so are they a distraction to your craft as well,come on T this is bogus, you are a talented man that has a talented woman on his team,,STOp the BULl and keep your but home

      Men seldom stay with the transitional woman. Also, from her video clips and social media comments she seems like she has a nasty attitude. T.I. doesn't seem like the type who'd think that's cute and it's not the kind of personality trait that can stay hidden. She's cute, but cute can be bought these days. I think she's going to eventually end up embarrassed.

    He will face a new world of turmoil. I hope she dates but only after a meditation season, she has to get in the spiritual rim and let it heal her. My prayers are with Tiny and those children. #Everyone is effected by this #Thanks pass around Bernice?

    Well if he's had enough of the marriage, then Tiny should cut him loose and send him on his merry way so he can screw around with all and sundry. Apparently Tiny is no longer enough for him and he now wants a newer younger model.

    I always thought that he was a good dad and father. I just had that gut feeling about being a good husband. I could see that he didn't want to be with tiny by his actions when they were together alone on the show. I guess he fooled a lot of us. So disappointed in him. I felt there was something going on with him. So stupid. He will regret it. Move on tiny.
