Grammy-winning rapper T.I. has decided to keep his lips sealed when approached with questions surrounding his upcoming wedding with long-time girlfriend Tameka “Tiny” Cottle.
Tip credited renowned singer Diana Ross for making him realize some topics should be kept private.
“Why offer people the opportunity to have an opinion about something they shouldn’t have an opinion about?” he asked Power 106’s Luscious Liz. “One thing Diana Ross told me, she said you’ve got to keep something to yourself,” he shared. “I just feel like that’s something private, that’s between us.” (Rap-Up)
Tiny recently confirmed a wedding with T.I. would likely take place in 2010.
“There are wedding plans coming soon, sometime this year,” she said in an interview. “Not too big ’cause I want it to be as private as possible. There’ve been a million rumors about us getting married. It’s taking away from the day that we really do get married so I just want to kind of have that moment for myself. I don’t really worry about what people say about what’s taking so long. like, it ain’t none of your business what’s taking so long. If we happy, why are you so concerned? We living, we’re happy, we’re in love. I mean, it’s no doubt in my mind that he doesn’t love every piece of me and vice versa so we’re just doing what’s comfortable and what works for us. Tiny and T.I.: Not for the world. When we get ready to make a move, we will make it. We just can’t do it for everybody.” (VIBE)
Last November, Tiny said a wedding would be scheduled for this year.
“Sometime [next] year, but we can’t really give a date yet because we have to find out exactly when Tip is coming home,” Tiny revealed in an interview. “We’ll have to just plan around that, but I envision a fairy tale wedding. [As far as music together,] well, we did one song and we just never really got back in the studio, but I can’t say that you won’t hear anything in the future. I don’t want to give it out yet, I want to hold it to make sure we go in that direction. We have several things that we’re talking about doing together, so we’ll see how that works out.” (XXL Mag)
In the spring, Tiny talked about Tip’s close-knit relationship with her.
“He is very over protective but — he’s also very loving and very into me,” she revealed in an interview. “He’s an extremist with everything he does, everything is to the extreme so he doesn’t really have a middle ground, but I love it though. That’s just our relationship, we’re just really into each other and I just can’t complain that I have a man that really wants me around all the time because normally it’s the opposite, they don’t care if you ain’t around for weeks, but mine does and I’m just blessed.” (All Hip Hop)
