Two’s company. Three’s company too? The practice of open marriages, polygamy/polyamory, or even “throuples” have been starting to normalize for some time, while not the most common. Could it be that rapper T.I. and his wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris are practicing this with their marriage?
The Harris marriage has been riddled with rumors of infidelity for almost as long as they’ve taken their vows. The couple has broken up to make up more times than most can count, but somehow they manage to keep it together, despite intense media and social media scrutiny.
Outside of rumors that either party has stepped out of the union (more T.I. than Tiny), talks of their relationship being more of an “open marriage” have also run rampant. British singer and personality Rita Ora was brought into the conversation as a potential partner after the couple was spotted on lunch with her. Neither party came forward to address the claims.
The heat would only intensify when during the embroiled battle between Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna, Kardashian exposed his ex with claims that she cheated on him with multiple men, and T.I. caught an arrow in the crossfire when he chose to butt in. “Why bring ya business to IG tho? Look, You got worked bro…. but at least keep it to yourself,” the “About The Money” rapper wrote. “You letting the world know you a duck, I mean a BIG DUCK, a mighty duck, Ronald McDonald the Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Howard the Duck, Huey Dewy & Lewie… save the #DuckTales Just hold this L, kiss ya kid & cut ya losses& move on… u got no moves bro.” This incited fiery allegations from Kardashian.
“Since TI wanna chime in on business that don’t concern him let’s talk about the threesome you had with Chyna and your baby mama Tiny,” Kardashian alleged. “Don’t speak on my daughter when u having threesomes with young Chy and Tiny ::: and I put that on my daughter’s life since u wanna speak on my daughter,,, damn shame.”
Kardashian, who shares a daughter Dream with Chyna, continued, “Chyna told me everything […]: TI paid Chyna to have [relations] with Tiny and him.”
After Kardashian’s allegations, TMZ caught up with T.I. who responded to his claims. “Don’t tell women’s business. That’s bad. That’s very, very bad. Poor character. Flawed, you know what I mean?” the rapper stated. “If a woman trusted you and confided in you with secrets and stuff like that, you don’t ever let that — you don’t do that. Secrets are sacred, you don’t do that. ”
Another celebrity has come through with some insinuations of her own is Pussycat Dolls frontwoman Nicole Scherzinger. On an episode of E! Entertainment’s LadyGang, Scherzinger was put to the test and asked to say the first thing that comes to mind when she hears the name of a man she’s collaborated with in the past. When asked of her “Whatever You Like” collaborator, she describes the rapper as “hot”.
But it was her later comments that would have eyebrows raising. One of the hosts claimed that T.I. once invited her to the Harris household for dinner, and she responds with a wink, “I’m sure they did. I’m sure they did,” before they all burst into laughter. She then doubles down on the shade, saying “Like, guess what’s for dinner! You b—h!”
The couple hasn’t responded to Scherzinger’s claims. They were last seen on a recent vacation together.
