Every marriage hits a rough patch and celebrities are no different.

Tiny Harris spoke candidly to ESSENCE about how she and husband, rapper T.I., are getting through theirs, "We're still working it out, slowly but surely we're just taking it day by day."

Harris reportedly filed for divorce in December, news that shocked fans. However, the pair were recently seen at VH1's Hip Hop Honors and spent quality time together on a family trip to the Bahamas back in July.  

That same month, on Tiny's birthday, the rapper shared a message to his wife that celebrated their relationship and its evolution. "In my eyes, we didn't break up, we EVOLVED into something unconditional," T.I. wrote. "A relationship that supersedes fidelity, physical presence, or any other disagreement we may have faced. What we have is stronger than the bullshit & for that I'm thankful. We've taught each other things that'll allow us to continue to raise hell & kick shit for many many moons."

Happy Gday to my beautiful lovely lil loud mouth,argumentative know it all,shit kickin,Cap ass Southside Patna. @majorgirl As a couple We've experienced some of the greatest moments in our lives together & burnt a hole in a bunch of big bags of money,in some of the most beautiful places in the world. And while I may have fucked up & still have so many more fuck ups in me on so many levels,one thing that's never gon change is how I consider you.... You are,have been,& always will be one of the Best Friends I have in the world. We've done just about all there is to do,good & bad. I remember for a long time we couldn't even spend a day apart from one another we were so emotionally connected. Then we were forced to "do time" apart back to back.(That shit sucked huh?) Then we popped back up on they ass and showed the world how cool raising kids could be on Family Hustle. While that may have put a few million more people than we'd like in our personal intimate business,it also became an example for so many who didn't have one in the areas of parenting,family & marriage in HipHop.... That's some real stand up shit to be proud of. We have 7 amazing kids who all have enough skills,smarts,talent and ability to take care of us in our old age....Now That's awesome!!! And while most of these nosey, no business havin,overly-opinionated,fake caring ass people would see it as a break up... I see it differently. In my eyes,we didn't break up,we EVOLVED into something unconditional. A relationship that supersedes fidelity,physical presence,or any other disagreement we may have faced. What we have is stronger than the bullshit & for that I'm thankful. We've taught each other things that'll allow us to continue to raise hell & kick shit for many many moons. Keep pressing your line & polishing your shine Mrs.H... Enjoy this day that's a celebration of the day the lord gave US You!!! Kick Big Shit Fa That!!!! With Eternal Love Respect & Admiration, 👑Tip👑BIG Daddy👑King Sr👑Mr Harris. #HappyBirthdayMrsH

"You just have to take your time and try to give each other room to grow and breathe," Tiny told ESSENCE. "I think that's what we've done and have been doing. When we come back together it's refreshing."
