Grammy-winning rapper T.I. has publicly come forward to confirm his marriage to longtime girlfriend/singer Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and said he has found happiness.

While short and brief, the “King of the South” said he was content with his life to this point.

T.I. married Tameka “Tiny” Cottle late last month, and they celebrated in three cities (Las Vegas, Miami and Atlanta) with family and friends, including Usher, Bow Wow and Nelly. Tip hasn’t commented publicly about his nuptials, and this weekend at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, during a press event for his upcoming film “Takers,” the King of the South explained his silence. “You know me, man. I try to keep everything personal, personal,” Tip said. “I will say this: I’m happy.” (MTV)

The wedding took place in Florida hotspot, Miami Beach last month.

TMZ has learned rapper T.I. got married earlier today — in a secret ceremony at a Miami Beach courthouse. The 29-year-old superstar — real name Clifford Harris Jr. — swapped I Do’s with his longtime 35-year-old girlfriend Tameka “Tiny” Cottle. The two have reportedly been dating since 2001. (TMZ)

The couple carried on wedding activities into a weekend filled with celebrations.

According to Us Weekly, the newlyweds will swap vows again Saturday, this time in front of family and friends, on a private island off the coast of Miami. Cottle will dress for the occasion in Valentino. Then, per the mag, it’s off to Atlanta for a big hometown reception Saturday afternoon, and then T.I. and Tiny will jet off to Las Vegas to celebrate glam-hip-hop-style into the wee hours. (E!

Tip recently said he would refuse to address speculation on his wedding date.

Tip can’t seem to avoid rumors that he’s planning to wed longtime girlfriend Tameka “Tiny” Cottle in Miami this weekend. “Don’t believe everything you read online [and] see on TV,” he told Atlanta’s FOX 5 News. “I have never commented on such subjects and I never will.” (Rap-Up)
