Rumors are swirling about the relationship between rapper T.I. and Tameka “Tiny” Harris. While some are speculating that the couple may be calling it quits after six years of marriage, the mother of seven is setting the record straight.
In a statement, released to Us Weekly, Tiny addressed the rumors, stating that she “has read so much about her marriage” recently. She went on to say that despite what “blogs” report, she and T.I. are still very much in love. Additionally, the statement delivered by her rep stated that there is a lot of love in the Harris family and they plan to continue cultivating that.
“Tameka Harris has read so much about her marriage in the past few weeks that it’s time to set the record straight and really educate everyone on the facts. Certain blogs have ‘reported’ that she’s going to be a single mom, she’s getting a divorce, she has a new residence and everything in between,” he rep told Us. “On behalf of Mrs. Harris, this is the truth — Tameka and T.I. are good. They love each other and they have a beautiful family with seven amazing children. For them it will always be family over everything.”
T.I. and Tiny’s marriage has endured a number of ups and downs. In June, T.I.’s stepdaughter was arrested on weapons charges. The 20-year-old was found carrying a .380 Ruger semi-automatic pistol in her bag at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. People magazine reported that Zonnique Pullins was taken into custody at the airport after security found the weapon. Tiny’s daughter was released after 2:00 a.m. EDT.
Prior to that incident, a fatal shooting took place at a concert of T.I.’s in New York City. In May, rapper Troy Ave was charged and taken into police custody after an incident that left one man dead and three injured. The 30-year-old rapper was among those injured during the shootout, though it was later revealed that it was his own weapon that hit him. Troy Ave remains in custody. Neither T.I., nor Maino and Uncle Murda — who were performing with him that night, was injured.
T.I. has had legal issues of his own, serving 11-months behind bars in 2010 for weapons charges. Tiny stayed with him throughout the duration of his sentence.
