It was a very Louis Vuitton Christmas at the Harris mansion! I'm told T.I. gifted Tiny with two Louis Vuitton bags, including that $2,400 Cruise 2009 number she's wearing in the above photo.
She also received a diamond encrusted watch, a diamond heart pendant and other goodies from T.I.
In fact, all the ladies in T.I.'s life received Louis Vuitton bags for Christmas this year! And T.I. gifted his male relatives & associates with LV cuff links and LV ties.
It's hard to believe Louis Vuitton corporate office is at odds with T.I. over his use of their brand in his songs and videos.
Sadly, T.I.'s older sister Precious wasn't included in the Yuletide celebration.
Word is T.I. fired Precious on Thanksgiving Day and relieved her of her duties as nanny to his and Tiny's baby son, Major. They say Precious misses the baby terribly.
Allegedly, Precious was also told to stay away from T.I.'s home on Christmas Day. So the family ate Christmas dinner without her for the first time in years.
[hidepost]According to close friends, Precious is not in good health and had to be hospitalized recently due to a severe asthma attack triggered by stress.
I'm also hearing that T.I's decision to dismiss his sister (and her son -- T.I.'s nephew) from his employ, involved Precious' knowledge of a certain jump off whose name I won't divulge right now.
One can only sit idly by for so long as rumors run wild and relationships are destroyed in the balance.[/hidepost]
Since we're on the subject of T.I. and Tiny, I'll address the rumors concerning the incident at Straits on Sunday night. As you know, the occasion was Rocko Da Don's star-studded birthday party.
They say Tiny arrived at the party that evening without T.I. and was seated in the private VIP dining room along with Rocko, Monica and their close family and friends.
Rapper Shawty Lo, who everyone knows has been beefing with T.I. for a minute, entered the room with his wife and was seated right next to Tiny.
You've all seen the pictures from the party and you saw how big that table was. Tiny could have easily been seated anywhere else in the room besides right next to T.I.'s arch enemy.
Rest assured that neither Monica nor Rocko had anything to do with the seating arrangements that night.
Anyway, within the hour, word went out to T.I. who arrived not long thereafter and firmly requested that Tiny rise up and leave with him -- which she dutifully did.
They say the informant may have been T.I.'s paid spy who reports back to him with detailed information on every move Tiny makes in his absence. The spy has no visible means of support, yet lives a well-maintained lifestyle.
I'm happy to report that Tiny and T.I. have worked things out, and the royal couple will ring in the New Year tonight at a party in Miami, Florida.
I also hear that T.I. is expected to attend this Saturday's rally for Morris Brown College. As you know, MBC is in deep financial debt and may be forced to close its doors next week.
Hopefully other so-called "ballers" in the community will step up as well to help save this historic institution.
