You may recall two years ago T.I. lost his natural mind when he ran up on his wife Tiny and Floyd Mayweather at a Fat Burger in Las Vegas. Egos were bruised which led to punches being thrown over assumptions Tiny and Floyd had something going on — all of which prompted the boxer to clarify:“I’m not sleeping with that girl [Tiny] and I told that man [T.I.] before.”
But while these three may have let bygones be bygones, the internet still hasn’t. That’s why when this pic of Tiny and Floyd together at a Halloween party this past weekend hit social media, it had a few people questioning whether Tiny taking a photo with a man her husband once put her hands on was disrespectful. (Because people love to be in other couple’s business.)
As you can see, the photo, taken at Mariah Carey’s Halloween party, is hardly a romantic one. But people still drew plenty of inferences about Tiny and Floyd’s relationship and what T.I. might think of his wife’s candid. That’s why Tiny put out this statement on Instagram, clarifying her close proximity to Floyd.
If I was Tiny, my husband would be the only person I’d be “answering to” regarding my whereabouts and where and with whom I’m taking pictures. I understand Tiny wants to protect her image and outside perceptions of her marriage, but some rumors aren’t even worthy of response, and I’d argue this is one of them.
It was just two weeks ago that T.I. was calling Floyd out for his “All Lives Matter” comments in an attempt to “enlighten” him and encourage him to use his powers for good. Does that sound like a husband still worried about a man sleeping with his wife? We think not.
