Since the Grammy Awards weekend, Tiny and her rapper hubby, T.I., have been the topic of conversation with news reports claiming the reality TV couple is headed for a divorce due to the Hustle Gang boss man’s alleged extramarital affairs.
Now, Tameka “Tiny” Harris recently sat down with HelloBeautiful to talk about her relationship with T.I and addressed the rumor about Tip’s alleged love child.
Check out the highlights from the interview below:
On her relationship with T.I.:
With any relationship, you argue, you fight, you go through things. So, that’s pretty much what it was. We were into it, but we was able to mend everything and get through it. It’s what we do.
On being scold by her husband via Instagram when T.I. commented under your picture:
For one, I was actually showing my side. I had my shirt up and I said something about my waist. I wasn’t showing my backside. It’s clear in my pictures when I am showing my backside, but this one in particular was not and the picture was taken from the side. Clearly, it was about my waist. I was trying to think, like, ‘Why did you say that?” But, it’s cool, we talked about it on the phone. I just didn’t understand why he had to say that there.
On if she questioned his motives for doing it on that forum:
Sometimes, when you’re in a relationship, you get in to your emotions and you can’t. We would like to be able to control it, but sometimes…it’s what happens and being in love and being in media all the time.
On being very vocal on Instagram and if her daughter Zonnique ever say anything about her actions:
Yeah, she does all the time. Mainly, it’s not about me, but if I put something about her, she’s like, “Mom!” If some comments are about me, I say something. I’m just one of those people. If you were in my face and said something I didn’t like, I would do that then. As far as when it goes to my kids, I don’t play. No disrespect. I don’t tolerate that with my kids. My daughter is one of those carefree, no worry in the world, that’s real calm, mild-mannered. She’s kind of like, “Who cares?” and I’m like, “No, they’re not saying that about my baby.” She does get embarrassed.
On swirling rumors about getting a divorce because of Tip’s alleged love child:
I don’t feel any different than when I do from the next rumor. I’ve been in the business long enough to know that this happens. It’s been a lot of different things that have been said about me and him and I know it isn’t true. So, I just let it fall to the waist side. If it don’t apply, I have to let it fly and that’s where I’m at with it.
As for that imaginary baby, I haven’t seen anyone come forth and say that it’s his child. So, it definitely don’t apply!
On any advice to married couples:
Keep prayer into your life and just work hard at it. Try to do some of the things to get there. I’m very nurturing. I’m always checking on him. I’m very attentive. I continue to be affectionate. Just show them that you’re into them. And, you’re not just, “Oh, I’m used to you.”
Well, there you have it!
