Despite all of the drama and divorce rumors surrounding Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and her husband, T.I., fans have always been rooting for them. Even though it was said that they’ve been dangerously close to going their separate ways, there’s always been something that leads people to believe these two will always find their way back to each other. Based on Tiny’s words during her new radio interview, it looks like that’s exactly the case. According to Ebony magazine, the Xscape singer has finally opened up about her relationship with T.I. and it’s probably what most fans expect.
Some Things Are Worth Saving:
For those who missed it, Tiny recently appeared on the Hot 97 radio show. With all that’s going on in Tiny’s life, of course, there were lots to talk about. From her upcoming tour with Xscape, to other business ventures and being a full-time mom to a house full of children – seven children total; three together and four from previous relationships – Tiny is a busy woman. But of course, there was one topic that couldn’t go undiscussed – her marriage to T.I. By now, fans know all about the drama that’s plagued the couple’s marriage for more than a year. But through it all, they’ve always managed to find their way back to each other. But with a divorce filing underway, will they finally go their separate ways? Not quite. Tiny explained why they keep going back to each other.
“I don’t know. For us, I think that it’s all in love, we just have a lot of love for each other. A lot of years in it, too,” she confessed to host Nessa. “It brings us back to being on a certain page that we just can’t keep running from.” She added, “We can run from it for a minute and be like, ‘Ugh, I’m through with him. I don’t care nothing ’bout it.’ But then love comes back and I’m like, ‘Let’s co-parent. Let me talk to you about this.’
When asked about whether the media reports create more problems for them, Tiny actually admitted the rumors have very little impact on their relationship and household. “I don’t think I feel pressure. I think that whatever it’s going to be is whatever it’s going to be. It’s really what’s going on with me and him. If we feel like we can deal with each other’s craziness and still move forward and be better for us and our kids, then that’s what it’s going to be,” she said.

A Long Time Coming:
Tiny’s latest statements follow reports about the couple’s rumored reconciliation. Although they’d gotten to the point where they were living in separate locations, insiders claimed the two had moved back in together and were working to repair their marriage. Initially, T.I. and Tiny hadn’t addressed the speculation, but the insider also claimed the reason centered around their desire to focus on their marriage away from the public eye. Apparently, they are making great strides. Best of luck to Tiny and T.I.
