For someone who can’t stand having people in his business in terms of his relationship, T.I. sure loves to publicly go out of his way to put his estranged wife, Tiny, in her place.
We don’t know the status of the pair’s relationship at this point because despite agreeing on television to go their separate ways, T.I. and Tiny have been seen out and about together since. And while that might be heartwarming to some, his penchant for disrespect towards her tends to quickly cool the beating heart. It’s just irritating at this point.
In the most recent instance, the rapper commented on a video Tiny posted of her giving their daughter Heiress a bath. He asked her to put some clothes on their child:
He probably meant well. Many parents worry about the type of people online who are being provided visual access to their kids, but we can probably all agree that a phone call would have sufficed.
But this is T.I. we’re talking about. He’s spent the last few years trying to check, embarrass or control Tiny both on social media and on camera. If you’re seeking proof, here are nine other examples you might want to check out.
The Time She Showed Off Her Bikini Body and He Wasn’t Having It
In a somewhat polite way (nice-nasty), T.I. first started commenting publicly after Tiny shared a picture of herself in a bikini. He told her she should showcase the many other things she has to offer — aside from her backside.
“U have so much more going for u other than your a$ [sic],” he wrote. ” Although it is magnificent, I think u should spend just as much time showcasing those other things as u do ya booty …awesome pic luv.”
The Time He Called Marriage a Distraction on the Radio
“Ultimately man, I’m on a mission. I’m striving to take my family, its name and our legacy as far and high as it can possibly go. And in my life there will be two different things. There will be people, places and things that help me get there. And there will be people, places and things that distract and deter me from getting there. It seems to me that marriage and what marriage means and what marriage does–it’s just one of those things that’s going to distract and deter me. And that could be selfish, but ultimately, I’m the patriarch of this family. And it’s my responsibility to take us onward and upward. And that’s what I intend to do. I just have a purpose and I don’t always have the time to do the thoughtful, considerate things that a husband should do. Me knowing that about myself–knowing I’m not going to deter myself from my plan. I’m going to move. And whoever move with me, they coming with me. And whoever don’t move, I’ll be back.”
The Time He Tried to Justify Cheating on Her With Her Employee
“Were you at odds with her?”
The Time He Told Her If She Tried to Take Their Daughter on the Road, He’d Shut Down Her Tour
The Time He Sucked the Excitement Out of Her Business Venture Announcement
The Time He Said They’d Outgrown Each Other And Should Split When She Just Wanted Him to Stop Cheating
The Time He Allowed His New Flame to Speak on His Marriage
Sure, Tiny didn’t need to go back and forth with Bernice Burgos on social media. However, as someone moving into a marriage that hadn’t fully ended, Burgos was wrong to say that she hadn’t broken up a happy home because “That home BEEN broken.” The model claimed that “I’m there for him. I’m a boss. He’s a boss.”
Instead of diffusing that situation, when asked about it, T.I. said, “I’m a man. I’m not engaging in no woman’s business. That’s got nothing to do with me.”
The Time He Posted This Mess
The Time He Wouldn’t Allow Her to Speak For Herself
While many applauded T.I. for shutting down Wendy Williams’s invasive questions about their past arrest, this seemed to be just one of many instances where the rapper would cut his wife off when they would speak together publicly to promote The Family Hustle. Telling her to “pause” so that he could take the reigns of the conversation was not as warm as it was commanding and controlling.
