T.I. and his wife Tiny have managed to make a hit VH1 reality show with their relationship and tight-knit family life, but despite the impressive ratings the show brings to the network, the couple’s union continues to be a target of gossip and criticism. For one, Tiny Harris’ looks seem to be a favorite target for the couple’s critics and it’s caused both T.I. and Tiny to snap on their social media accounts. But regardless of how people feel about Tiny’s looks, T.I. has made it clear on numerous occasions that he loves his wife and his family is the most important thing to him. Interestingly enough, blogs are now reporting that the couple’s marriage may be on the rocks because of the rapper’s latest Instagram post.
T.I. posted a “throwback” photo of his parents in happier days the other day. According to the rapper, things didn’t work out with his parents, but he says he wishes his dad was still around today so he could talk to him about some things and get answers. He posted the following photo and writes the following caption:
My Mama & Daddy back before da struggles of parenthood,relationships,& everyday life tore them apart. Damn dey look happy. Wonder what went wrong? Heh who knows? But da least I owe then both is to learn from them & never live life unhappily. I miss Pops…if he was here I got a gang of sh*t I’d ask him. But f*ck it….I’ll figure it out. Somehow. #hustlegangovererrrthang
Many took the photo and caption to mean T.I. is hinting that his marriage to Tiny is currently on the rocks, but a source close to the couple exclusively tells URBAN BELLE people are “reading too much into things.” The source says:
“People take Instagram way too seriously. T.I. and Tiny are happy. They are best friends and their family means everything to them. They have been through it all and they will never split up. T.I. was just trying to share with his fans how much he misses his dad. The recent passing of Tiny’s dad has also been tough for them but they continue to support each other. They are in love and everything is good.”
There you have it.
In related news, T.I. has a reason to celebrate considering his latest album “Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head” just went gold. Congrats to T.I.
