After all the mess rapper Clifford "T.I." Harris and his wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle have gone through this year, they definitely got side-eye from me during their holding of hands at this year's BET Awards. Like for real, what couple does this at a music award ceremony???
But then my skepticism began to fade when the couple traveled to Belize together about a week ago to celebrate Tiny’s 39th birthday. Tiny posted a picture on Instagram of long stem roses, balloons and flower petals laid on the floor in a heart shaped design, with the caption:
“Happy Birthday to me!!! Coming to America..lol!! Just getting started!!! But it’s me & @eclass1982 day b*tches!!! oh & thx baby [kisses and hearts emoji].”
So, could it really be true. Have they squashed their beef? Are they the rare celebrity couple that actually takes "for better or for worse" seriously? Well on T.I.'s latest song "Stay", he got all Robin Thicke on us while reminiscing on the love... Thanks to necolebitchie.com, the lyrics go a little something like this:
Remember when you got a tattoo, put my name on it.
Wow! I love it and I love them together! Read further for the latest Floyd Mayweather shenanigans and the parts of Tiny and T.I.'s compatibility chart that explain their relationship turbulence!
According to BET.com:
T.I. and Tiny aren't going to get caught up in another round of theatrics with Floyd Mayweather. The couple brushed off his latest comments about a rumored sexual relationship with Tiny.
Well said, Floyd!
UPDATE (6/15/14): Looks like Tiny didn't take the advice of T.I.'s momma about having a serious talk with Tip, cause she and T.I. are back throwing subliminal shots at each other! And of course, all of it is documented on social media for your viewing pleasure! I haven't gotten a chance to watch their tv reality show, but it can't be half as entertaining as their IG antics!
According to bossip.com:
In a new interview on DJ Whoo Kid’s show with Trey Songz, T.I. fired shots when Chris Brown’s hit single “Loyal” was brought up. After Trey Songz said, “These hoes ain’t loyal,” T.I. says:
The lyrics to the video clip are as follows: “Ay yo they could never make me hate you/even though what you was doing wasn’t tasteful /even though you out here looking so ungrateful/I’ma keep it moving be classy and graceful”
Tiny then posted this the same day:
Seriously tho, who are these people that expect hoes to be loyal???
Anyway, read further for a recap of other recent T.I. and Tiny theatrics, and details in their compatibility chart that explain all of this!
Instagram posts of rapper Clifford "T.I." Harris, Jr. and his wife of 4 years, former Xscape singer Tameka "Tiny" Harris have sparked rumors that their relationship could be heading towards divorce court.
And it all started with their fight wayyyy back on Saturday, January 25th, shortly after arriving in Los Angeles to attend the 56th Annual Grammy Awards. ALLEGEDLY, the fight was about a baby that is ALLEGEDLY TI's (and not Tiny's). As MediaTakeOut.com reported in February, Keisha, friend of Tiny's, is T.I.'s new baby mama! Keisha was one of Tiny's CLOSEST friends on the show TINY AND TOYA. And she later appeared on the WE show Pregnant And Dating.
Tiny sat down with HelloBeautiful towards the end of February to lay the rumors to rest.
HelloBeautiful: What are your thoughts on your relationship with T.I. in the news right now?
Tiny: With any relationship, you argue, you fight, you go through things. So, that’s pretty much what it was. We were into it, but we was able to mend everything and get through it. It’s what we do.
HB: What about that love child rumor?
Tiny: I haven’t seen anyone come forth and say that it’s his child. So, it definitely don’t apply!
Unfortunately, the drama between Tiny and T.I. did not stop after this interview, it actually seemed to ignite stronger as reports revealed that T.I. is living separately in his own crib in Atlanta. Way too much has transpired between the couple to include in this post, but if you want more details visit my other posts on TI and Tiny, you'll get an eyefull!!
So the latest drama involved a brawl between undefeated professional boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. and T.I. at a Las Vegas Fatburger. The fight reportedly started because T.I. felt Floyd violated his marriage by posing with Tiny in pictures that were posted on-line. After the fight with T.I., Floyd revealed in an interview with Necole Bitchie that T.I. had approached him in New York before the Vegas incident about a similar situation. Floyd said that he explained to him that he knew Tiny before her and T.I. were married and that they have always been strictly platonic friends.
Well, this talk in New York did nothing to soothe T.I.'s nerves because he allegedly connected with Floyd's face at Fat Burger.
So, a "fan" voiced his disapproval with Tiny's decision to pose with Floyd and thanks to thejasminebrand.com, Tiny had this to say...
WOW, she went full Cancer mode! THEN, T.I. ends up in Brazil (of all places) and posts a video of himself and his crew playing soccer against some scantily clad Brazilian beauties....side eye!!!!
But then he posts this..
But then, according to bossip.com, he deletes the above family post and continues to post more pics of Brazil. DRA - MA!!! So, I had to look into the astrology of TI and Tiny together to see if it explains the madness and it did!!!
T.I. – September 25, 1980 – LIBRA
Tiny – July, 14, 1975 – CANCER
CANCER AND LIBRA: This pair operates on entirely different levels: Cancer wants love to be emotionally transcendent, Libra seeks perfect intellectual communication. Libra has no sympathy for Cancer's moods, and Cancer is made insecure by Libra's detachment and shallow emotions. Cancer is too temperamental and possesive for airy Libra. They have a hard time establishing real sexual rapport, and that exasperates Cancer. They both love a beautiful home, but Libra also needs parties and people and outside pleasures. When Cancer turns critical, especially about Libra's extravagance, Libra starts looking elsewhere. [THE ONLY ASTROLOGY BOOK YOU'LL EVER NEED, by: Joanna Martine Woolfolk]
I don't even know T.I. and Tiny, but judging from all that they have revealed on social media this year, the above description seems pretty accurate! I did the couple's compatibility chart and it didn't surprise me when I found that their chart shows more negative than positive aspects. Negativity never means relationship impossibility, but it does mean that the two involved have to be EXTREMELY willing to put in WORK!!!!! Right now they don't seem to be too willing, but love is a powerful thing, so there is always hope!!! Let’s take a look at several aspects in their compatibility chart.
Tiny’s Mercury squares TI’s Saturn. TI is very critical and discouraging toward Tiny. TI is apt to judge harshly or to belittle her ideas. TI can also bring her worry or limitation of some nature. TI can detract from Tiny’s self-confidence and cause resentments to grow in her mind unless she can protect herself spiritually. Cooperation is difficult. Many of Tiny’s aims may meet with delay of realization due to the obstacles that TI may put in her path. Tiny will seem irritating and careless to TI at times. TI presents a challenge to Tiny which can help Tiny's growth.
This Mercury/Saturn aspect supports the rumor mentioned on sandrarose.com where T.I. refused to support Tiny’s new business venture, a line of tequila, because he feels it sends the wrong message to their young fans.
Tiny’s Sun square’s TI’s Pluto. TI resists Tiny's authority and will be jealous, rebellious, demanding and even vindictive. TI resists correction from Tiny, and will try to change her. In marriage, TI can undermine the confidence of Tiny and could have an unfortunate influence on her moral or ethical ideas. TI will try to change or reform Tiny. Unless differences of temperament are understood well and adjusted, their reactions together in this aspect are to be judged unfavorable. In friendships, this aspect indicates occasional tests of tolerance and loyalty.
Well loyalty was definitely tested if the baby rumors are true!
ON THE FLIP SIDE.....
Tiny is Jupiter’s trines TI’s Neptune. There is encouragement of idealism, spiritual or religious interests and charitable instincts in each other. There is often a strong psychic tie. Both planets are expansive and so can encourage efforts toward realization of material ambitions, too. In the case of business associates, this aspect is propitious for the accumulation of wealth.
TI and Tiny have proven that they are a power couple continually striving for more. It's not surprising that Jay-Z and Beyonce share a similar Jupiter/Neptune aspect.
TI's Sun sextiles Tiny's Neptune. Power urge harmonizes with spiritual urge. This aspect indicates a spiritual tie, much inspiration, understanding, sympathy, empathy and unusual sensitivity to each other. There is a psychic tie between the two. Between persons of the opposite sex, this aspect inspires reverence, romance, devotion, idealism, tolerance and personal sacrifice. Much compassion and sometimes pity establish the relationship. The attachment is subtle, but forges a strong bond. This aspect aids mutual confidence. There is much attraction and sympathy.
TI’s Sun conjuncts Tiny’s Moon. Their personality traits complement each other, yet are not identical. Each of them possesses something of the other's nature. Tiny is intuitive and sensitive in reaction to TI. TI is protective toward Tiny. This aspect is a powerful attraction.
This same aspect was found in Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union’s chart.
Tiny's Sun sextiles TI's Jupiter. Creative power urge blends with benevolent, protective urge. This is an inspirational influence, a sign of mutual encouragement, tolerance, helpfulness and forgiveness. There is sympathy, protectiveness,
loyalty, generosity, and, as a rule, mutual trust and confidence. When they try, they can and instinctively will bring out the best in each other. They benefit each other in either or both a spiritual and material way. There will be a desire to protect and help each other.
A SandraRose.com article explains, T.I. and Tiny have gone their separate ways in years past, but they always resolved their issues and got back together for the sake of their beautiful children. As her source said, “There’s hope.”
And as Tiny revealed in the Hello Beautiful interview:
HB: What advice do you have for married couples?
Tiny: Keep prayer into your life and just work hard at it. Try to do some of the things to get there. I’m very nurturing. I’m always checking on him. I’m very attentive. I continue to be affectionate. Just show them that you’re into them. And, you’re not just, “Oh, I’m used to you.”
Wishing them true happiness and fulfillment!!!
