R&B singer Tameka “Tiny” Harris clapped back at internet trolls who criticized her daughter, Zonnique Pullins, for falling pregnant out of wedlock.
The 24-year-old Pisces surprised her parents with the announcement that she’s expecting a baby girl with her rapper boyfriend, Bandhunta Izzy. But not everyone was happy about the news.
Critics jumped on social media to point out the mom-to-be isn’t married to her child’s father, real name Israel James.
Now her mom is fighting back, insisting she wasn’t married when she fell pregnant with her first child, Zonnique, who “turned out fine”.
Tameka reminded her critics that Zonnique was a good girl who never embarrassed her family.
“Zonnique is a very well-rounded woman,” Tameka tells PageSix. “She’s not fast. She’s not doing nothing no different than most women or her peers out there.
Tameka, 45, fell pregnant with Zonnique when she was a member of the girl group Xscape.
“I did not struggle. I was out there getting my money. I mean, I had a baby father but we weren’t married and I lived a great life. Zonnique lived a great life; she did not want for anything.”
Rapper Tip “T.I.” Harris, 39, helped raise Zonnique, aka Nique Nique, since she was a toddler. Zonnique and her biological father, Zonnie “Zebo” Pullins, are very close. She honored both of her dads on Father’s Day.
