Tameka “Tiny” Harris has reportedly filed for divorce from her husband, rapper T.I. Tiny, who has been married to Clifford “Tip” Harris since 2010, filed the paperwork earlier this month in Henry County, Ga., according to a report from TMZ.
The couple has three children together: King, 12; Major, 8; and Heiress, 9 months. Tiny has a daughter, Zonnique Pullins, from a previous relationship, and T.I. has three other children from previous relationships as well: Domani, Messiah and Deyjah.
People reports that when rumors of a divorce first surfaced in August, a rep for Tiny denied them, saying, “For them, it will always be family over everything.”
“She has read so much about her marriage in the past few weeks that it’s time to set the record straight and really educate everyone on the facts,” a rep for the T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle star told People in a statement at the time. “Certain blogs have ‘reported’ that she’s going to be a single mom, she’s getting a divorce, she has a new residence and everything in between. On behalf of Mrs. Harris, this is the truth—Tameka and TI are good. They love each other and they have a beautiful family with seven amazing children.”
Now it looks as if those rumors are true.
The couple has reportedly been going through a rough patch that started several months before the former Xscape singer was photographed with boxer Floyd Mayweather and singer Mariah Carey at a Halloween party, TMZ reports.
T.I. and Mayweather were famously involved in a brawl at a Fatburger on the Las Vegas Strip in 2014. When questioned about why she would appear in yet another picture with her husband’s nemesis, Tiny said that she was pressured by Mariah Carey to be in the photo.
No word yet on whether or not T.I. has responded to Tiny’s request for a divorce.
