T.I. is admitting that he’s “happy” to be splitting with wife Tiny Harris following a very frank conversation between the twosome captured for the their reality show, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle, in which he revealed the real reason for their divorce.
In a clip from the upcoming finale of the VH1 reality show obtained by Hollywood Life, T.I. (also known as TIP) admits during a piece to camera that he’s actually “happy” to be calling it quits with his wife of seven years who he first started dating back in 2000.
As the two sat down for what could be one of their final conversations as husband and wife, the rapper and the Xscape musician candidly discussed their relationship and subsequent divorce, deciding once and for all to go their separate ways.
“A part of me is happy,” the “Live Your Life” rapper admitted about his impending divorce after his candid sit down with his estranged wife.
“A part of me is happy to close this chapter, simply because I feel we outgrew each other.”
“I feel she grew in a different direction, you know, and I did too,” he continued, likely referring to his new romance with Bernice Burgos and rumors Tiny got pretty close to boxer Floyd Mayweather who has been locked in a nasty feud with T.I. for years – though she has always denied being cheating.
But while Tiny and T.I. managed to keep thing pretty cordial during their sit down, Tiny admitted that she wasn’t exactly “happy” to be splitting with the musician who she’s been either dating or married to for the past 17 years, instead calling their official decision to go their separate ways “hard.”
“It is kind of crazy to think that we won’t be a couple anymore,” Tiny said of their divorce on The Family Hustle sneak peek.
“We’ve always been stuck together like glue. Like every day, day in day out. It’s hard it’s strange. It’s different.”
But despite their marriage drama that’s been widely reported over the past few months – including cheating allegations on both sides – the rapper was quick to praise his wife of seven years and confirmed that they would stay friendly before the two confirmed their divorce will go ahead.
“Look, I think you’re a phenomenal person,” he told Tiny who is the mother of his children.
“We’ve had some of the best times of our lives together, and it does not hurt or insult me that, at some point, that you grew to this point, and I grew to this point. It ain’t nobody’s fault. Ain’t nothing else to do but split.”
T.I. even went on to call Harris “one of the best friends, still, that I have in the world.”
The now former couple then toasted to a “new fresh beginning.”
Tiny and T.I.’s seeming truce on the finale of Season 6 of T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle comes after both discussed the cheating rumors in another clip from the twosome’s reality show. T.I. accused Tiny of having an affair with Floyd while Tiny claimed her estranged husband had slept with new girlfriend Bernice Burgos before they separated.
“Tip has some infidelities with a girl who I hired, and that girl is one of the reasons I got my own house,” Harris said of why she moved away from the rapper, before T.I. then slammed his wife of getting too close to his feud partner and even going back to his home with him.
Tiny denied that her relationship with Mayweather was anything but platonic during their divorce talk, but claimed that he treated her “like a lady” while TIP has denied his romance with Bernice began before Harris filed for divorce.
There’s no doubting that T.I. and Tiny have had their fair share of drama since filing for divorce earlier this year, as Harris has and Burgos have slammed each other on multiple occasions amid rumors the two are caught in a seriously nasty feud.
What do you think of T.I. and Tiny Harris’s surprisingly cordial dinner and the rapper’s admission that he’s actually “happy” to finalize his divorce Tiny?
