Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, 35, will be arraigned on Monday in Los Angeles for misdemeanor drug possession — the same day her husband, rapper T.I., 30, is due to turn himself in to start serving an 11-month sentence at an Arkansas prison.

Cottle’s arraignment and T.I.’s incarceration both stem from a Sept. 1 traffic stop in West Hollywood. Police arrested the Atlanta-based newlyweds on suspicion of drug possession but only Cottle was charged. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Monday it would not prosecute Clifford Harris Jr., the rapper’s birth name, despite finding four ecstasy tablets on him.

That decision was reached in part because of the jail time facing T.I, 30. He was ordered to return to prison on Oct. 15 for violating his probation on weapons charges. [link]

Tiny will most likely avoid jail time on the misdemeanor charge. It isn’t clear if she plans to be in court for the arraignment or if her west coast counsel will represent her.

    I don’t feel sorry for either one of them…i’m sick of these so called celebs getting away with murder…they need to take charlie sheen with them

  • Mother Jefferson

    :coffee: That’s an unfortunate pic of Tiny 😆

    Tip needs to man up. Both of them go to rehab. Dont they have five or six kids? That’s too many nigglets running around to be acting like they don’t have no sense

  • Cariblife

    So sad that the kids just got their daddy back and now this sh!t happens. I hope Tip and Tiny learn something from this, its time to stop the crap and grow the hell up, if not for themselves then at least so their kids can have steady parental figures around them.

    Hello All. WOW, WOW and another WOW! It’s a shame what WE women will put up with or take from a man. He must have a schlong that reaches the floor.

  • ySoSerious

    😆 @ PA

    If so he’s gonna be putting it to some use where he’s going. Hope there is enough to go around.

  • KrayZKat

    This is one of the most tragic and saddest things. Now their children will be without thier daddy again and have the possibly face ridicule from school mates (unless they are homeschooled). I don’t follow them enough to know, but it’s a shame. I feel sorry for the children and family that have to suffer through having a loved one addicted to drugs. I hope they both get themselves together so they can become better examples to their children. I know we all make “mistakes,” but damn!

    @ KrayZ

    If those kids are being home schooled by the likes of T.I.ny, this situation would go way beyond tragic.

    lmao this is funny, especially considering you thought ti was only going to get a 30 day sentence? lmao.

    yeah ok SR. keep hope alive.

  • http://mstrendy.com/ MsTrendy

    Yeah she will definitely get off with a fine. I’m so sad about her husband having to do jail and in my state Arkansas.

  • http://mylifeinthesun782.blogspot.com Ms. Everything

    @ajonesy she won’t do prison time for a misdemeanor drug charge in la county. They don’t send nonviolent drug offenders to jail because of a law out there. She’s gonna have a fine, possible rehab and more than likely community service.

    Anyway, she needs to wake the hell up, both of them do

    She can’t be the one doing it because she is too busy chasing T.I. all over the country 5 days a week. Those kids probably have to think a minute to recognize both of them.

    I was watching Xscape videos this morning. I miss them. I thinnk Tiny is injecting her upper lip which makes her look odd. She was more normal looking without that.

    It’s amazing that no matter how much trouble these to get into, Sandra will never label them as troubled! But Chris Brown, who had paid for his crime……….and has moved on in a postive light, is always labeled troubled as if he continues to beat on women.

    Jerrica, I’m so sorry to hear that. Try not to let being :sick: get you down. Take care, and hopefully, you are staying out of this nasty weather. Get better, hun!

    Misdemeanor??? :blink: I thought possession of Xtasy was considered a Class 5 felony because it’s a narcotic?? :shrugs: In the state of Virginia X possession is a Class 5 felony.

    This is sad and unfortunate…Not only does these children have to deal with their father leaving them a SECOND TIME; they have to idlely stand by, patiently waiting to hear about their mother’s fate. At what point do you think about your actions and how your actions can directly and/or indirectly affect your children? Clearly, these two (Clifford and Tameka)focus more on being reactive vs proactive. Don’t get me wrong, I am far from perfect however I am a firm believer of accountability. Despite the decisions you’ve made, good or bad- OWN UP TO THEM! Most importantly, you have to learn from those mistakes. If these two turn out to have a substance abuse problem, I pray they get the help they need for the sake of their children.

  • ELove

    Am I SHOCKED by This… NO
    Should I be SHOCKED By THIS… NOPE
    Do I have ANY Sympathy for HER (And HIM)… Hell F-ing NAW

    But I DO wish them luck in getting their act together… If IN FACT they truly want to GET THEIR ACT Together (Real…) :yes:

  • allwrightyden

    They both need to get themselves together for sake of their children!

Poor lil kidz…gotta go another 11 mts without their father around…smh

  • qtipthecat

    I feel bad for those kids just for the fact that their parents are a couple of losers. At least the older ones have a better chance, because they have a different mother. The two babies, don’t have a chance. Their parents are never home anyway.
