Hip-hop power couple T.I. and Tiny are calling it quits. R'n'b singer Tiny is said to have filed for divorce from her rapper husband after six years of marriage following months of reported arguments.
Earlier in December, Tiny, real name Tameka Harris, filed divorce papers in Georgia's Henry County, TMZ reports. A source told the website that the couple had endured several months of rocky relations after Tiny was pictured with T.I.'s rival Floyd Mayweather.
An insider told E! News that the couple had "arguments and disagreements over some issues [which] led them to split", but they "still [want to] be friends for the kids and family".
Neither T.I., real name Clifford Harris, nor Tiny have publicly commented on the split reports. The estranged couple are parents to three children, King Harris, Major Harris and Heiress Harris while Tiny is mother to daughter Zonique Pullins from a previous relationship, and T.I. is also a father to Clifford Harris Jr., Domani and Deyjah Harris.
T.I. once said of his longtime partner: "[I] can't say enough about how special of a woman I have. It takes a lot to endure the worst of times and still stay grounded during the best of times."
