Soon After T.I.’s Last Cheating Scandal, Here’s What He Just Did For Tiny’s Birthday
It’s no secret that Xscape singer, Tameka “Tiny” Harris and her husband/ rapper T.I., were recently tested yet again in their on-again-off-again marriage. The latest scandal was centered around T.I.’s latest hiccup- the viral video of him flirtatiously slapping the butt of his alleged side chick/”Greenleaf” actress, Asia’h Epperson.
Following that incident, both Tiny and T.I. shared various messages with the world that displayed some form of tension between them, understandably so. However, when we fast forward to today, July 14, 2018, Tiny has just received a pleasant birthday surprise from T.I., but the jury’s still out on whether she actually seemed happy about it.
(VIDEO) T.I. Shows Tiny Birthday Love
Almost instantly after the clock struck midnight on Saturday (July 14), Tip couldn’t wait to chat it up with Tiny on Instagram Live and wish her a happy 43rd birthday. He was at an event in Las Vegas, NV, while Tiny was in their hometown of Atlanta, GA.
T.I. seemed to be having a blast at his festivities and was hella jolly, as he and his friends held up wine glasses to toast it up to Tiny for her 43rd orbit around the sun.
Tiny, on the other hand, seemed almost unenthused as she held up her red plastic cup of whatever, to toast with Tip. She also pointed out that she couldn’t help but notice how “lit” T.I and his homies were in Vegas, as she sat in ATL presumably by herself at that moment.
Tiny told T.I. she ‘should be in Vegas’ with him and that’s when a slight tinge of regret -for mishaps past and present- surfaced on both sides during their convo. T.I.’s response to Tiny was that he’s ‘gotta let her do her thing’ – a response that seemed to be an extension of a previous conversation that they didn’t make public. Check out their birthday convo below…
Why Tiny Clapped Back At Tip
Shortly after his flirtatious video surfaced in June, T.I. re-shared (and now deleted) a message on Instagram, telling men why they should not get married:
‘Why men don’t marry. Because there’s nothing it for them: What exactly does marriage offer men today? “Men know there’s a good chance they’ll lose their friends, their respect, their space, their sex life, their money – and if it all goes wrong- their families,” says Helen Smith, Ph.D., author of “Men on Strike.” “They don’t want to enter into a legal contract with someone who would effectively take half their savings, pension, and property when the honeymoon period is over. Men aren’t wimping out by staying unmarried or being commitment phobes. They’re being smart. … Unlike women, men lose all power after they say “I do.” They’re masculinity dies too.
Even though he made it clear that he did not write the post, he admitted that he agreed with some of it. ”Just found out some info out there that I thought I’d share…and mind you I DID NOT WRITE THIS, A WOMAN DID….but I do agree to a degree,” Tip wrote in his Instagram caption.
Needless to say, many female fans were pissed with T.I.’s post and apparently so was Tiny. She immediately took a subliminal shot at T.I., with the help of a video message from Snoop Dogg and her caption read:
“Crown the KING who knows that his QUEEN is the most important piece on the board,” Tiny wrote. To put that extra stank on it, Tiny ended her message with hashtags that were clear indications she was clappin’ back at her husband: “#chessnotcheckers #CHECKMATE 🙏🏽👑🗝”
So, my assessment of their birthday video is that T.I. is probably trying to kill two birds with one stone: (1) He’s possibly attempting to do damage control with the public, by showing a united front with his wife; (2) He could be trying to ease tension with Tiny, by publicly showing her love, to downplay the embarrassment his flirty video caused her. I’m still rooting for them and their marriage though.
