Tiny Harris Tells T.I.: You signed up to be a husband!
Tamaka ‘Tiny’ Harris was not pleased when her estranged husband Tip (aka T.I., real name Clifford Harris) was quoted as calling their marriage a “distraction.” On an upcoming episode of the family’s reality show, ‘The Family Hustle, Tiny confronts Tip about his comments. The rapper turned actor says,
I didn’t say anything bad about you.
The marriage is distracting me from my greatness. I tried being a husband, I obviously wasn’t that good at it.
You have to respect your woman. You signed up to be a husband!
And to this, Tip replies,
You keep on taking words and God damn twisting them.
See the clip.
As previously reported, during an interview, Tip stated that his focus was on his business and building a legacy for his children, not marriage.
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 me 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. I just have a purpose and I don’t always have the time to do the thoughtful and considerate thing that a husband should do.
