T.I.’s family got some unfortunate news in the middle of the holiday season. The Atlanta rapper’s wife Tiny has filed for divorce, according to a report by TMZ. T.I. and Tiny were married in 2010 and have three children together.
A source told TMZ the couple had been going through a rough patch that began months before when Tiny was seen in a Halloween photo with boxer Floyd Mayweather. T.I. and Mayweather were involved in an infamous brawl just two years ago, which centered around an alleged affair between Tiny and the boxing star. Tiny would downplay the situation during a 2014 interview with XXL.
“It was all blown out of proportion,” Tiny said. “But the Floyd thing, I’ve kind of hung my hat up on it. I’m not really talking about it because I feel like it’s just kind of overdone and it’s disrespectful to my husband. I don’t really want to have a blown out conversation about another man that [T.I.] kind of is or was at odds with.”
Tiny’s filing for divorce is an unfortunate development after she and T.I. welcomed a new baby into the world this year. The couple’s daughter Heiress was born in March with no signs of marital trouble between T.I. and Tiny. But in recent months, rumors of T.I. cheating with a model emerged in addition to the aforementioned Halloween photo featuring Tiny and Mayweather.
