Married couple T.I. and Tiny have both come forward to clear the air on weekend controversy courtesy of a misunderstood audio recording of boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. #tippingpoint
According to reports, both Tiny and T.I. have downplayed their names being drawn into Mayweather’s latest incident.
T.I.’s wife Tiny confirms that statement … telling us she’s never had sexual relations with Floyd — and thinks he only spoke out at the presser to get revenge for her BET Awards diss. As for T.I. … he simply told us, “I hope he is enjoying himself. God bless him.” (TMZ)
Despite the widespread coverage, Mayweather cleared up the matter this weekend.
Floyd Mayweather says he never had sex with T.I.‘s wife Tiny … and claims the audio in the footage we posted this morning wasn’t clear. Mayweather tells TMZ Sports …he ACTUALLY said, “he thinks I was f***ing his bitch.” In the video, Floyd does try to mutter something before the sex line — but it’s hard to make out. Mayweather adds, “I’ve never been with Tiny sexually. I respect her situation and I think she’s a good person. I would never disrespect a marriage.” (TMZ)
While he did not get deep into details, Tiny’s husband T.I. recently admitted his problems with Floyd dated back past May.
“There was history. There was definitely history,” Tip said in an interview. “I don’t care what you do to whoever else. I don’t care who you speak to, how you speak to them. You dealing with me you gonna deal with me like a man. I feel like my steps are guided, man. I’m a man of God. When I step I ain’t got nobody to fear, but God himself. I don’t got no fire I can’t walk through. I done been through it all.” (Hot 97)
Tip initially relied on his Instagram page to dismiss reports of enduring physical harm to his face when Mayweather fight story first broke out.
“They said I’ve got two black eyes. Where they at, though? These ones I’m looking at? Is they black for real? D*mn, been like that all my life. F*cked my hand up. That’s about it. [laughs],” Tip said in a video followed by the caption “Two black what?????? C’mon now. Never in da history of Nigga-dom. But nice try tho. Lol” (T.I.’s Instagram)
