Keeping Up With the Harris Fam
On & Off
No one can ever be too sure with the notoriously on-and-off duo. However, it was pleasant surprise to learn that Tiny was close by in their home as T.I. was arrested for misdemeanor simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. More than that, reports that Tiny has opted to not move forward with her divorce is emitting hope.
As reported by XXL Mag, Tiny first filed a leave of absence early April. “Their relationship must have made some strides towards reparation as no court action has been taken for the past few months,” the outlet stated.
“Strides” may be an understatement, as just two months ago, there was whispers of the couple renewing their vows. According to a source close to the Xscape singer, who spoke exclusively to Hollywood Life, “Doing a vow renewal is something Tiny and T.I. have been talking about for months.”
Of course, the infamously on-and-off couple is going back-and-forth with each other about the idea. Hollywood Life‘s source revealed that the stars “can’t seem to get on the same page about” whether or not getting their vows renewed is going to happen.
“One day Tiny is all for it and it’s Tip pulling back and then, the next time you ask them, they’ve switched, and it’s Tiny who isn’t feeling it,” the insider said. “One thing they do seem to agree on right now is that they want to do their vow renewal back in Miami on Star Island where they first got married. And they want to do it on their wedding anniversary (July 31).”
“They’re in a really great place”
Though “there’s nothing standing in the way” of the couple having the ceremony this summer, there are “no solid plans” as of yet.
“I know Tiny’s big fear is jinxing what they have right now,” the source went on. “As much as she wants to commit to Tip again in front of all their family and friends, she’s also worried that it could put too much pressure on them. They’re in a really great place, and she doesn’t want to rock the boat that’s why she’s a little afraid of doing a big vow renewal.”
Whether or not the couple does “a big vow renewal,” there will surely always be love there. Even in the face of divorce, their public display of affection for each other never stopped. Tip didn’t even stop calling Tiny by his last name.

After the singer made the cover of Upscale Magazine late last year, she celebrated by posting it on Instagram. “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, especially on the cover of @upscalemagazine, featuring ‘ME,’” she captioned the post. “The story, written by @scenebysatchel, and breathtaking images await you at upscalemagazine.com and on stands.”
Later that day, Tiny’s Upscale Magazine cover shot found its way on T.I.’s Instagram, alongside a lurking-eye-emoji-worthy caption. In the middle of a strong arm emoji and a target emoji, T.I. wrote, “This the look right here Mrs. H.”
For her birthday in July of last year, the “About the Money” rapper posted a lengthy (like almost 400 words lengthy) heartfelt Instagram post to his wife of nearly eight years. In the emotion tribute — which came well after his cheating allegations and the end of Family Hustle — he told Tiny (and the world) that he didn’t see their split as a divorce but rather growth “into something unconditional.” He also said they formed a “relationship that supersedes fidelity, physical presence, or any other disagreement we may have faced.”
He then called the 42-year-old R&B singer his “Southside Patna” and one of his best friends before remembering their time on television together, being “an example for so many who didn’t have one in the areas of parenting,family & marriage in HipHop.”

The post-divorce love isn’t all one sided though. About two months later, for Tip’s birthday in September, Tiny set out to top T.I.’s birthday wishes to her.
For the Atlanta native’s 37th year, Tiny took out a whole billboard for him. “Now THAT’S how you tell your hubby happy birthday!” The Shade Room said on Instagram alongside a photo of the birthday announcement.
Standing tall in Atlanta, the Camp Creek Parkway billboard read: “King of the south. Happy Birthday TIP! From the one who loves and adores you the most. Mrs. H.”
Along with vacationing together and being super gushy with each other on social media, they are also not dating other people… not publicly at least. Gossip website SandraRose claimed that the one-time Xscape singer was seeing No Limit mogul Master P behind her husband’s back, but when rumors started spinning that she was moving on, Tiny made extra sure to shut them down in a clear, concise way.
Around the same time that she let all of Atlanta know that T.I. turned one year older, the Xscape group member sat with Wendy Williams on The Wendy Williams Show. After Wendy, who notoriously doesn’t get along with T.I., brought up the rumors, Tiny quickly squashed them. “Me and Master P are business partners,” she said. “We have a basketball league together so, that’s it. I didn’t even know Master P until this league started. So, that’s not true.”
Master P also did his part to end the rumors.
“Social media is a gift and a curse, let’s kill this body language rumor right now,” he wrote on an Instagram video denying the rumors. “No, I’m not dating Tiny. I met her for the first time at a GMGB conference and took a picture. Just for the record we’re doing business she’s the owner of a team and I’m a owner of a team.”
“People must be bored and have no life to entertain this false accusation,” he added. “The lady that created this rumor stop it! The truth shall set you free! You owe everybody an apology. I gotta lot of respect for T.I. I wish him and his family nothing but the best.”
P added that there are real problems in the world that need addressing. “People should use their voice for positive things like hurricane Harvey, our people need Water, Shelter, and Food,” he said. “You can make a difference small or big, go to hurricane Harvey flood relief.”
Ever the promoter, Master P took a moment to turn the rumor into a shout-out for an upcoming match between Tiny’s team and his. “On a lighter note, Tiny’s Atlanta Heirs and my New Orleans Gators will go head to head on September 23 in Las Vegas,” he wrote. “She’s gonna need Shannon Brown and the whole Atlanta Hawks team to beat my New Orleans Gators! Metta World Peace, the Three Headed Monsters, The Gonzalez Twins! Just to name a few! Come Witness History at the Cox Pavilion in Las Vegas! It ain’t a rumor the Gators gonna beat the Heirs!”
