Incarcerated rapper T.I.‘s wife, Tiny, recently discussed having her husband’s back through his 11-month jail sentence for a probation violation.
Although her husband currently resides behind bars, Tiny said she is fully supportive of him.
“I’m down for him,” Tiny said in an interview. “You have to know this person would do the same for you. Being down [for T.I.] is the easiest thing to do. He makes it so easy. He sets it out so great and perfect for me. He’s like ‘You ain’t got to work, you ain’t got to do this or that.’ Just be with me. And we enjoy each other. It’s not hard to stay down. The least I can do is give back, and make sure I’m 100 percent and a strong woman.” (VIBE)
Tiny also said since hooking up with T.I., her life has become less stressful.
“The only thing in my old life that I miss is working,” Tiny added. “Before I got with [T.I.] I had stopped working and going on the road, anyway. Life has changed with him. It’s worry-free. I don’t have to worry about getting up and going to work every day. I don’t have to stress about trying to get money or trying to make more money. He’s upgraded my life. I wouldn’t want to take back nothing.” (VIBE)
Today, reports hit the Internet claiming Tiny and T.I. got in trouble during their prison visit last weekend.
Rapper T.I. got in some serious trouble with prison officials this weekend — after guards caught the most famous inmate in Arkansas getting “frisky” with his wife during visiting hours … TMZ has learned. T.I.’s wife Tiny confirms … the two were in a room together during regular visiting hours at Arkansas State Prison when Tiny made like Michael Jackson … and ‘beat it’. Tiny says she hasn’t spoken to T.I. since the incident — but she’s hopeful she’ll be allowed to visit again soon … as long as she keeps her hand to herself. (TMZ)
The incident reportedly resulted in T.I. being placed under stricter security measures.
According to state prison guidelines, inmates are allowed to kiss and embrace at the beginning and at the end of a visit as well as hold hands in there. However, “the inmate’s hands must remain in plain view of staff at all times.” Same goes for the visitors. In his pants doesn’t cut it apparently. Tiny confirms that as a result of this stroke of bad luck, T.I. was sent to a “Special Housing Unit” consisting of more security and less freedom. (The Hollywood Gossip)
