On the day T.I. begins his prison sentence, ESSENCE.com confirms exclusively that he and longtime fiancÃ©e Tameka "Tiny" Cottle are husband and wife. Get all the details now.
For all those who questioned ATL rapper T.I.'s commitment to his fiancée of two-plus years, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, the father of five finally said "I do" in a private ceremony held in Miami, a source close to the bride tells ESSENCE.com.
"All I am allowed to say is that T.I. and Tiny are officially husband and wife," revealed the source. Neither T.I. or Tiny could be reached for comment.
This would be the first marriage for the couple who has two kids together, and three from T.I.'s previous relationships. Tiny, a member of the defunct R&B quartet Xscape, suffered a miscarriage in 2007.
The private ceremony was allegedly held in Miami a couple of weeks ago and presented to the public as the couple's getaway before T.I. began serving his a-year-and-a-day sentence for his illegal firearms conviction back in 2007. The intimate affair was attended by close family members and select members of Grand Hustle, the rapper's label imprint.
