T.I.'s wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris called into the Rickey Smiley radio show yesterday to explain the incident that got her man confined to a "special housing unit" last weekend.
Tiny, 35, confirmed to TMZ.com that the two were in a room together during regular visiting hours on Sunday (Jan. 2) when Tiny "made like Michael Jackson ... and beat it."
Inmates are allowed to kiss and embrace at the beginning and at the end of each visit as well as hold hands -- but "the inmate’s hands must remain in plain view of Visiting Room staff at all times."
According to Tiny, T.I., 30, was reprimanded and sent to a "Special Housing Unit" -- which consists of more security and less freedom. His liberal access to the prison phones and email were also cut off. Tiny hasn't heard from her man since Sunday, and she doesn't know when she will be allowed to visit him again.
