Tiny&TI’s Marriage Drama Just Dealt Them A NEW BLOW &The Financial Hit Is HUGE
Just when things were looking up, then looking down, then seemingly looking up again for the Harris fam,’ they’re right back to yet another ‘down’…again.
There’s good news and bad news for Xscape singer, Tameka “Tiny” Harris and her soon-to-be ex-husband (or maybe not, who knows?)/rapper, T.I.. We’ll hit y’all with the good news first:
Good news for T.I. is that he’s back on his grind focusing on building his Grand Hustle Records label. He’s also been helping his son, Domani, with his rap career, who by the way, is actually a solid artist.
Good news for Tiny is that she’s back with her Xscape members and they are in the process of working on new music as we speak. She is also the very first female owner of a co-ed professional basketball team…a business deal she just closed recently.
Now The Bad News…
After news of their pending divorce- which has recently been put on ice (but not completely shut down by Tiny at the Georgia courthouse)- spread like wildfire, VH-1 and MTV have given T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle reality TV show the boot after six solid years on air. Here’s what was reported via People:
VH1’s hit reality series’ upcoming sixth season will be its last, the network confirms to People exclusively. The show — which has followed the lives of T.I., Tiny and their seven children in Atlanta since 2011 — is set to end in April, and will finish with its 100th episode.
“VH1 is incredibly proud of this long running series and our partnership with Tip and Tameka,” says Nina L. Diaz, EVP, Head of Unscripted, VH1 and MTV in a statement. “For six years, they have opened their home and shared countless family moments with us. Reaching 100 episodes is a milestone and we couldn’t be more excited to bring viewers the highly anticipated final season.”
VH1 maintains that this season, T.I., 36, and Tiny, 41, “remain more committed than ever to the family hustle” and are “working together to figure out their new normal.”
What will the show be about, now that there is no happy marriage for the Harris’?
The upcoming season will feature T.I. focusing on his political activism and music label, Grand Hustle, as Tiny gets ready for an Xscape reunion. As for the kids, T.I.’s son, Messiah, 17, is preparing to go to college. Meanwhile, Tiny’s daughter, Zonnique, 20, and T.I.’s son, Domani, 15, are busy creating new music — and the couple’s kids, King, 12, and Major Philant, 8, are showing the ropes to the family’s newest addition, baby Heiress, 11 months.
THE FINANCIAL HIT
The financial hit their taking from the show’s cancelation is major. We’re not sure how much Tiny was earning, but as of 2013, it was reported that T.I. was stackin’ almost $40,000 per episode.
I think the Harris fam’ should create their own family show on the web’ or something. It ain’t like they don’t have the fan base for it…might as well keep the ball rolling themselves. Who needs a network when you have social media? Just saying.
