T.I. Released to Half Way House

Reportedly T.I. has been transferred to a half way house in downtown Atlanta. Sources say he was brought by a transportation van last night, just in time for the Holidays. Although he may not be able to have privledges to leave until after the first of the year, he is now closer to his family. When he aloud to start his community release he will have a curfew of 10:30 pm on week days and 11:30 pm on weekends. He will remain at the half way house until sometime at the end of March when he was expected to be released. It is not uncommon for a federal inmate to be released to a half way house a few months before their release date, this had nothing to do with T.I.'s celebrity status. I hope he and his family have a Very Merry Christmas.

T.I. showers Tiny with Thanksgiving gifts to remember from prison

Looks like T.I. isn't gonna let Tiny forget who loves her, check this out courtsey of

So last week, he reached out to his staff at Grand Hustle and ordered up a big surprise for his lil mama, who began shooting the 2nd season of her hit family reality show The Tiny & Toya Show on BET.
“He called and asked when the cameras would be rolling,” a production crew member told exclusively over the weekend. “He wanted to capture everything on camera.”
The surprise began for Tiny last Monday as she answered a knock on the door of her posh Jonesboro, GA mansion.
It was a flower delivery man bearing 6 or 7 bouquets of roses.
10 minutes later, there came another knock at the door and another flower arrangement. And every ten minutes thereafter — for about two hours — came more flower arrangements until the foyer was filled with a dozen beautiful bouquets of roses and flowers.
But between deliveries of flowers came the biggest surprise of all: couriers came bearing gifts of a different kind. “I want to show her how much I love her. I want to do something nice for her on camera,” T.I. had told his staff.
And something nice it was!
Couriers delivered a $4,000 Valentino bag, a pair of $2,000 Nicholas Kirkwood pumps (I’m smiling as I type this because some of y’all don’t have a clue about Nicholas Kirkwood pumps), a $1,500 Gucci jacket, scarf and matching boots, and a bottle of Marc Jacobs perfume.
“I ain’t gon’ lie that’s some real cute love right there,” said the production assistant. “Every day he’s calling asking how’s she doing, does she need anything? It was so sweet. He has a great heart.”
“People don’t realize how sweet she is,” the source continued. “But they’re getting to know her on the show. She’s so go with the flow. We want them to stay together. Because if they break up, Tip might end up with a b*tch that none of us get along with.”
You don’t understand, what other rapper’s girlfriend has what Tiny has. She drives a f****** Bentley! For a long time Kim [Porter] wasn’t driving no Bentley. She might have had a Range, but not no damn Bentley — and Puffy’s money is longer! [Tip] takes very good care of everybody.”
“You didn’t get that from me!” said my production source who asked to remain anonymous because she didn’t have authority to tell me anything.
The source didn’t know the exact cost of the romantic gesture, but I guesstimate T.I. spent between 20 and 30 grand on his boo. It must be nice to be able to treat your honey like it’s Valentine’s Day on any day of the week!

T.I. and Tiny will marry after prison release

Looks light wedding bells will be ringing for real this time for Rapper T.I. and fiance Tiny. In a recent interview with XXL Magazine, Tiny tells them she currently planning a wedding around T.I.'s expected release date. Speaking of family, last season of Tiny and Toya you spoke of sharing vows and moving forward with a wedding. When can we expect to hear about a wedding date?
Tiny: Sometime [next] year, but we can’t really give a date yet because we have to find out exactly when Tip is coming home. We’ll have to just plan around that, but I envision a fairy tale wedding. Fair enough. It’s clear you and T.I. are very committed and talented individuals, so why haven’t we heard any collaboration from the two of you?
Tiny: (Laughs) Well, we did one song and we just never really got back in the studio, but I can’t say that you won’t hear anything in the future. I don’t want to give it out yet; I want to hold it to make sure we go in that direction. We have several things that we’re talking about doing together, so we’ll see how that works out. [source]

I'm looking forward to this wedding, I hope it all works out well. I love them together

Tiny's Birthday Bash Via T.I.

On July 16, tiny celebrated her 34th birthday party, hosted by Grand Hustle Comedian Lil Duval. In attendence was Tiny's friends and family, among them was her reality T.V. Co Star, Toya, former Exscape member and long time friend Kandi Buress, rapper Rasheeda, and others.

Even though Tip couldn't be there he showered his Boo with some great gifts, such as a 10kt diamond ring, a diamond necklace and, a LV Bag. His presence was certainly felt there for her. Must be nice, I know us regular folks are thinking those gifts are worth a lifetime of work for most people. Congratulations to Tiny, she deserves it. Thats what all the haters get, mad at her cuz she has all his love.

The Tiny and Toya Show is a HIT

Well I caught the sneak peak of Tiny and Toy's new reality show on Sunday after the BET awards, and before it came on they were interviewed on the post show, Toya made it clear that this was not a baby mama show. She was right, even though there is discussion of the men in their lives, the show was real. It showed alot of personal things about both girls such as Tiny's family struggling with her father having Alzheimers, and Toya's mother being on drugs in New Orleans, how they cope with family, children and wanting to have a fulfilling life besides being these famous men's other half. I'm so glad that Tiny mentioned that she was the successful one first, she won grammys and made millions before T.I., I'm so tired of these haters acting like she's only someone because of him. She put her fame and career on the back burner to be a wife and mother and take care of her family. I enjoyed the show, and I'll keep on watching. I'm wondering if anything will be aired about Toya's new Buffalo Bills boyfriend, anyway, I like it better than "The Housewives".

UPDATE!! on T.I. and Tiny Wedding Rumors

While it has been floating around the net that T.I. and Tiny did in fact get married, T.I. 's publicist reports that the rumors are just in fact RUMORS. Now whether the publicist just isn't at liberty to discuss the details or not, the fact remains WHO CARES!! They are basically married, whether they are legally or not isn't important, they live and have a family together, and I'm thinking that he don't buy 5 karat diamond engagement rings or $2,300 Louis Vuitton bags for just any girl. Tiny is his "ride or die" chick and they've been together 10 years stong so she or him isn't going anywhere.

T.I. and Ex still battling over child support

Rapper T.I. and his ex baby mama LaShon Dixon are still battling over the fact she wants more child support for the 2 boys that he already pays every thing for. Back in September a Fulton County Georgia judge ordered only a $1000 increase to the $2000 that Dixon already gets. She is now trying to seek $10,000 dollars per month. She claims the children who live in his home recieve more benefits than her 2 boys. T.I. explained in court that he provides 100% financial support for those boys and she chooses not to work and live off the child support only. He went on to explain that they do not live together and havn't for 10 years, so he is not responsible for how she chooses to live. Also lawyers for T.I. say that in addition to the child support, the rapper pays 6-8 thousand dollars a month on private school, clothes, health insurance, food, vacations gifts etc.... In my opinion she's lucky that he don't take her to court for custody because she don't work, then she wouldn't get any money. He already paid for her car and gave her the down payment for her home. There is a reason she's not the fiance. I bet this all stems from jelousy that Tiny is the one who gets all those LV bags.
