Living in the public eye is one thing, but when a couple decides to make their relationship the focus of a reality show, they add a whole new set of stresses to their lives. Clifford Joseph Harris, also known as T.I., has been dating Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, who used to be in the band Xscape, on and off since 2001. Since they got together, they’ve been on several reality shows, and VH1’s T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle show it all.
They got married less than a decade after meeting by chance, but their relationship didn’t last long.
When Tiny filed for divorce in 2016, it seemed like the end of their relationship, but they soon got back together. Do T.I. and Tiny still have a relationship? Find out what’s going on with their relationship now.
Tiny started dating T.I. just two years after she won a Grammy for writing the TLC song “No Scrubs” and three years after Xscape broke up. When they started dating, the rapper already had three children—two sons with Lashon Davis and a daughter with singer Ms. Niko.
Tiny also had a daughter with Zonnie Pullins, with whom he had been in a relationship before.
In 2004, Tiny and T.I. had a son named King Harris. Two years later, they had another son named Major Philant.
In 2007, when Tiny was giving birth to the couple’s first daughter, she died.
Tiny and T.I. were together for nine years before married in Miami in 2010. Their VH1 show went into detail about their family and marriage.
The show started as soon as T.I. got out of jail. In 2010, he had broken his probation and had to do time.
In 2016, Tiny gave birth to their third child, a girl named Heiress. Just a few months after their daughter was born, they shocked everyone by saying they were getting a divorce. Tiny was the one who asked for a divorce, and T.I.’s infidelity was later shown on T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle.
Tiny and the other members of Xscape, including RHOA star Kandi Burruss, went on a reunion tour in 2017. She and T.I. said soon after that they were back together. And it looks like the two are still together.
Why Did Ti And Tiny Divorce?
Fans didn’t find out how they decided to get back together because their reality show ended in 2017 when it seemed like their marriage was over. The couple was on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook Live show, Red Table Talk, in December 2019. They talked about why their marriage broke up in the first place and how they were able to get back together.
Tiny said that their relationship changed after T.I. got out of jail. Tiny had to be on her own while T.I. was gone, so when he came back, he was surprised by how she was acting.
“I went and found myself… He was not used to that. He was used to always being in charge and getting his way, but once I was on my own, I felt like I should be able to say something too “On the show, Tiny said.
T.I. said that he was cheating on Tiny in the months before they broke up. Tiny said that she thought her husband was looking for something better. She said that T.I. worked on becoming a better person after they broke up.
Since they almost broke up in 2016, their relationship has changed for the better.
On May 10, T.I. posted a Mother’s Day message to his lovely wife. “Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful mothers in my life and everywhere else. Have a happy Mother’s Day! “He wrote a caption for the cute picture.
