Tameka “Tiny” Harris addressed those pesky divorce rumors during an appearance on the Arsenio Hall Show last week.
The reality TV star said her marriage to reality show producer and hip hop tycoon Clifford “T.I.” Harris, Jr. was still going strong, despite rampant rumors that she is dating a well-known Atlanta street pharmaceuticals distributor and T.I. has run off with a west coast groupie.
“It’s definitely not true,” Tiny told Arsenio. “It gets to me from sometimes friends, sometimes my mom. People call. It’s going to get to me.”
Tiny was referring to her mom, Dianne Pope, who routinely fields phone calls from friends, family, and the occasional blogger. Mrs. Pope relays the rumors to Tiny, who reassures her mom that all is well at home.
“We’re just a regular couple. We fuss. We fight. We go through our things, but we’re still together,” she said of her 12-year relationship with the King of the South.
Tiny reminisced about the day she met T.I. at a local shopping mall.
T.I., also known as “Tip” to his family and friends, treated the then mother of one to a meal at the $3 Cafe.
“Our first date [was] the day that we exchanged numbers at the mall. We ended up hooking back up like maybe an hour later,” she said.
At the time T.I. was an emerging rapper and Tiny was a well-established singer with the popular girl group Xscape.
T.I. told Tiny he was her biggest fan.
Little did they know that their chance meeting at the mall would alter the course of their lives forever.
