As soon as word leaked that T.I. was arrested and would likely be headed back to jail as a result, many people asked why didn’t his wife, Tiny, try and take the fall for him.
In a new interview with XXL magazine, Tiny finally answers you folks who act like it was her bad that T.I. violated his parole.
“I feel like, if you don’t know the details on it, you can’t say I could take the fall. If I could have, I would have said, ‘Well, yeah, that’s me.’ But it wasn’t able to be done. And for one, there were other people—other friends in the car—that could have taken the fall, but it couldn’t happen.”
I’m surprised it took so long for many to get that. And when people finally stopped criticizing her and remembered the one who was actually on papers, they started to wonder if T.I. will ever learn his lesson.
Tiny says that Tip truly recognizes the error of his ways:
“It’s timeout for any nonsense. We know what to do now. Not that we didn’t then—but things happened, you know. Now it’s for sure. He’s never gonna go back to jail. We can’t have that.”
Good for him. He’s too talented to end up America’s most talented cellmate. Tiny did address one more thing of note—the longstanding rumor that she’s cool with and even recruits other girls for their “open relationship”:
“I’m not on no 'He might do this.' No, I’m not one of those girls. This ain’t no open relationship, like, 'You can do that, and you coming home to me.' No, it’s not one of those. Definitely not.”
And there it is.
