It seems like the divorce between T.I and his estranged wife Tameka ‘Tiny’ Cottle has done far more damage than we anticipated after the rapper declared marriage a total distraction.
The Live Your Life hitmaker and his spouse of six years called it quits in December (2016), when she filed for divorce.
Although the former couple have called it quits, T.I has revealed that there is no beef between them and that they spent ample time together since the break-up, but denied that they’re looking to get back together.
“There is no beef, we good, we straight,” he explained during an interview with New York radio station Power 105 on Tuesday (11 Apr 2017). “Everybody else (is) the one that got the problem. We see each other. We speak, we talk. We spend time together. We good. She’s still one of the best friends I have in the world. I can just be a better best friend than a husband.”
T.I., real name Clifford Harris, also revealed that his focus on work made him forget about the romance at home, and in light of his split, he’s not sure he’ll ever wed again.
“Ultimately man, I’m on a mission,” the hip hop heavyweight declared. “I’m striving to take my family, its name and our legacy as far and high as it can possibly go. And in my life there will be two different things. There will be people, places and things that help me get there. And there will be people, places and things that distract and deter me from getting there.
“It seems to me that marriage and what marriage means and what marriage does – it’s just one of those things that’s going to distract and deter me. I just have a purpose and I don’t always have the time to do the thoughtful, considerate things that a husband should do.”
T.I. and Tiny, who first began dating in 2001, share three biological children together and he is stepfather to his estranged wife’s eldest daughter Zonnique Pullins from a prior romance. The rapper is also dad to three other kids from previous relationships.
